Baby Root Canal Therapy

Baby root canal therapy or pulpotomy is a dental procedure performed on children with deep cavities that have affected the nerve of their primary teeth. The goal of the treatment is to remove the infected or inflamed nerve, clean the tooth, and fill the space with a suitable material to restore the tooth’s function and prevent further damage.

Who should get it?

Baby root canal therapy is typically recommended for children who have a primary tooth with an infected pulp- this can cause severe pain, swelling, and other complications. If left untreated, the infection can spread to nearby teeth and gums, leading to more severe dental problems and even affecting the development of permanent teeth.

What are the benefits?

Baby root canal therapy is a safe and effective way to treat infected primary teeth, preserve the tooth structure, and prevent further damage. It is important to seek prompt dental care if your child is experiencing tooth pain or other symptoms of dental problems. Contact us at (305) 271-0861 today.
