Best to save baby teeth

A pulpotomy, or a “baby root canal,” is not as scary as it sounds. Sometimes this procedure is needed to save baby teeth when the pulp tissue is inflamed because there is trauma or the cavity is extensive enough to cause damage to the core of the tooth. All this means is that part of the diseased pulp is removed to expose healthy tissue, replacing it with a medicine that will promote healing from within. It’s always best to save baby teeth when possible to avoid an extraction and maintain space for the permanent tooth to grown in. Don’t worry, this is much quicker and easier than a traditional adult root canal.
