Pulpectomy dental procedure for children

The Pulpectomy procedure is preferred for children and is used to treat tooth decay that has extended to the pulp. The roots of the baby tooth are somewhat different from the roots of the permanent tooth. It is a procedure of removal of the entire pulp and then fillings of the canals of primary (baby) teeth with a suitable resorbable material.

When is a Pulpectomy treatment for kids needed?

This treatment is used to save a baby tooth that has been severely damaged by decay. The baby tooth is reserving the space for the coming soon primary tooth. Premature loss of a baby tooth can cause the following problems:

  • Speech development issues
  • Difficulty chewing
  • Adjoining teeth move into space which affects the alignment of the permanent teeth, can lead to crooked, and overcrowded teeth

The material used to fill the tooth after the Pulpectomy process is designed like that it can be reabsorbed by the body when the permanent teeth begin to erupt.
