My eight year old has an on and off toothache. Can young children get a root canal?

When cavities in children get really deep, the pulpal tissue becomes irritated and inflamed.  This is when they feel the "toothache".  The dentist removes the decay and then the pulp chamber (the top part, not the root canals) This procedure is called PULPOTOMY and is often called a baby root canal. It is not really a root canal and is a very common procedure in children.
