A pulpotomy is a dental procedure specifically tailored for children when the pulp (the innermost part of the tooth) is affected by decay or infection. Rather than removing the entire pulp, as in an adult root canal, a pulpotomy involves selectively removing the affected portion to preserve the health of the remaining pulp and maintain the tooth’s vitality.

Application Process

The pulpotomy procedure involves the following steps:

  • Assessment: Our experienced team conducts a thorough examination to determine if a pulpotomy is necessary, considering the extent of decay or infection.
  • Selective Pulp Removal: The affected portion of the pulp is carefully removed, and the remaining healthy pulp is treated to prevent further issues.
  • Tooth Restoration: The treated tooth is restored with a suitable material to maintain its structural integrity and functionality.

Educating Parents and Caregivers

As part of our commitment to education, we provide information to parents and caregivers about the significance of pulpotomies and their role in preserving the health of their child’s teeth. We offer guidance on post-treatment care and maintaining good oral hygiene practices at home.
