A pulpotomy is a dental procedure that involves the removal of the inflamed portion of the pulp in a tooth, usually performed on primary teeth. This treatment is crucial when decay or infection reaches the pulp chamber, which houses the tooth’s nerves and blood vessels. Often referred to as a “baby root canal,” a pulpotomy aims to preserve the tooth while alleviating pain and preventing further complications.
The Pulpotomy Process
During a pulpotomy, Drs. Sammon, Chen or Valaskis carefully remove the infected pulp, disinfect the area and seal it with a biocompatible material. This process ensures that the remaining healthy pulp can continue supporting the tooth’s structure. Thanks to advancements in dental technology, pulpotomies are now more efficient and comfortable than ever, allowing for a smoother experience for both you and your child.
Why Choose Pulpotomy?
Preserving primary teeth is essential for proper oral development and preventing future dental issues. Pulpotomies play a vital role in maintaining a child’s oral health, enabling them to chew comfortably, speak clearly and smile confidently. By addressing dental problems early on, pulpotomies contribute to a lifetime of good oral habits and overall well-being.
