My daughter is 8 years old. She has pain in her molars on the right side. I consulted a dentist who suggested root canal and cap. She is just eight years and those are not her permanent teeth. Is it neccessary for her to undergo a root canal treatment.

Yes it is, as if not treated this will be source of infection, causing bacterimia all along till new tooth comes.
