Pulpotomy for Baby (Primary) Teeth

A pulpotomy is not as extensive as a full root canal. It involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth’s crown (the visible part), not the roots.

Pulpotomies are relatively simple procedures, but they can greatly preserve your child’s oral health and development by saving the infected tooth until it’s naturally ready to fall out.

Root Canal Treatment

A root canal can save a tooth when the pulp has been severely damaged by decay or injury. The procedure involves removing the infected pulp from the tooth’s crown and roots.

After the pulp has been removed, the inside of the tooth is cleaned, disinfected, filled, and sealed to prevent further infection. The last step is usually a dental crown to restore function and appearance.

Frequently Asked Questions

Why should a root canal be performed on a baby tooth?

A root canal, or a pulpotomy, helps preserve the baby tooth, which plays a crucial role in guiding the adult tooth into the proper position and maintaining the space needed for healthy oral development.

Do you offer sedation during root canal treatments?

Yes, we offer safe and effective sedation options to ensure maximum comfort. We understand that some patients may feel anxious about dental procedures, and our goal is to make the experience as calm and painless as possible.

What should I expect after a root canal treatment?

We’ll send you home with detailed aftercare instructions to meet your specific needs. After a root canal treatment, it’s normal to experience some sensitivity or discomfort for a few days as the mouth heals. Once the tooth has fully healed, it should function just like any other tooth.

How can I help my child prevent the need for a root canal?

Good oral hygiene practices are essential in preventing the need for a root canal. Encourage your child to brush twice a day, floss daily, and maintain regular dental check-ups. A healthy diet with limited sugar can also help keep teeth healthy.

Wonderful dentist. They are very kind and patient with my little ones who are very shy. They are quick and efficient and I would recommend them to anyone with little ones!

I had a dental emergency a few days ago and I went to Sweet Tooth in Lompoc and I can confidently say that I found my dentist! They are a pediatric office that also works with adults, which I think makes them very patient and understanding with patients regardless of age!
