Pulpotomies (nerve treatments)
A pulpotomy is when the inflamed pulp chamber, usually on a baby molar, is removed, the area is sterilized, and the chamber is sealed. After that we have to reconstruct with a crown.
A pulpotomy is the surgical removal of the entire coronal pulp, leaving intact the vital radicular pulp within the canals
Indications for the Pulpotomy
- Cariously exposed primary teeth, when their retention is more advantageous than extraction. The cavity is very deep or extended to the integrity of the crown.
- When inflammation is confined to the coronal portion of the pulp.
