What is pulpotomy ?
A pulpotomy is the surgical removal of an inflamed pulp chamber in a child’s tooth that has been compromised due to decay, cavities or trauma. In order to prevent or alleviate an abscess or infection, it is necessary to remove the bacteria from the pulp chamber inside the tooth.
What Is The Difference Between A Pulpotomy And Pulpectomy?
Pulpotomies and pulpectomies are very similar. The difference is a pulpotomy procedure involves removing the pulpal tissue only in the crown of the tooth. In a pulpectomy, the tissue is removed in both the crown and the root of the tooth.
How is pulpotomy done ?
The dentist will remove the diseased pulp within the crown of the tooth, and place a special medicated filling that is put into the chamber in an attempt to keep the healthy and unaffected pulp root alive. The filling will help to prevent bacteria growth and infection, and also calm the nerve of the tooth. Finally, a stainless steel or tooth-colored crown is placed on the tooth, which not only strengthens the tooth and minimizes the risk of future fractures, but also protects from food particles and bacteria.
