What Is A Pulpotomy?

As stated above, the need for a baby root canal occurs whenever tooth decay extends into the nerve of the tooth. This usually happens due to a cracked tooth or a cavity that extends into the pulp chamber of the tooth and causes an infection. If not treated properly by a dentist, pus will start to form around the jaw bone.

This “pus pocket” is also known as an abscess. The side effects of a tooth abscess can cause pain, swelling, the death of the pulp tissue and may even affect the jaw bone and your child’s overall health. Not getting your child the pulpotomy they need may hold future consequences. If the tooth is taken out prematurely, this may cause their permanent teeth to erupt in the wrong position. To ensure that your child is calm and pain-free during the treatment, we also offer sedation dentistry in our kid’s dental clinic. After the treatment is done we expect your child to be completely pain-free! If not, they should be back to normal in just a few days after the treatment. It is important to note that the infected tooth will not heal on its own and may even cause the tooth to be taken out prematurely if a pulpotomy is not received.

What Can You Do To Stop Your Child’s Pain & Save Their Tooth

If your child is in serious pain we recommend giving them a small dosage of pain reliever. While this is only a temporary solution for their pain, it will come back once the pain reliever is processed. We urge you to bring them in for a baby root canal treatment to stop their pain and save their tooth. During the pulpotomy treatment, our pediatric dentist removes the infected pulp tissue found within the crown of the tooth. We then give your child medication on the tooth in order to prevent any bacterial growth and stop the pain. Lastly, the baby root canal is finished with a crown or filling. If your child needs a pulpotomy in their back teeth, we recommend placing a crown as this strengthens the tooth.
