7 years kid do not have wisdom tooth. Anyway if you mean last tooth in dental arch. Rerct is another option.
A 7 year old does not have wisdom teeth. Root canal is a treatment and teeth are a part of body. So just like any other part of body, your teeth can also get infected again. Its just a secondary infection. Depending upon the tooth resorption, that tooth has to be retreated or removed. If its a primary tooth. If its a permanent tooth ,it has to be retreated and saved.
