Posted by Modesto Kidz Dental on Dec 6 2019, 04:29 AM

Pulpotomy is the process of removing the pulp from teeth. Pulp is the inner part of the teeth that contains blood veins and nerves. Pulpotomy is done in many ways. There are types of Pulpotomy which you need to know:

1. Partial Pulpotomy for traumatic exposure: This pulpotomy is also called Cvek Pulpotomy. When a tooth is strongly hit by something in such a way that pulp is exposed. This happens in the case of a baby tooth or a young permanent tooth.

2. Partial Pulpotomy for carious exposure: In this case, the radicular pulp is remain healthy and Pulp chamber is exposed. This is helpful when root formation is incomplete and partial pulpotomy helps in keeping pulp vital long enough which allows root to develop more.

3. Adult Pulpotomy: This is not done so often on adults as root canals are considered best option for treating adult permanent teeth.
