Pulpectomy

What is pulpectomy?

A pulpectomy is similar to a root canal, and is actually typically a part of the root canal process. After a dentist removes the damaged pulp from the tooth, the area inside the tooth is disinfected and then filled with an inert material.

Why do my kid need a pulpectomy procedure ?

Inside every tooth, in every person, is a material known as pulp. While the enamel and dentin on the outer layers of the teeth are tough and lifeless, the pulp inside is soft, living and very sensitive. When the outer layers of the tooth are damaged, it is possible for the pulp inside to become infected. In some cases, the best option for saving the tooth is a procedure known as a pulpectomy.
The main objective of pulpectomy in the primary dentition is to retain every primary tooth as a fully functional component in the dental arch to allow for proper mastication, phonation, swallowing, preservation of the space required for eruption of permanent teeth and prevention of detrimental psychological effects due to tooth loss.

Why should teeth not extracted and pulpectomy procedure required ?

Pulpectomy is a conservative treatment approach to preventing the premature loss of primary teeth that can result in loss of arch length, insufficient space for erupting permanent teeth, impaction of premolars, and mesial tipping of molar teeth adjacent to the lost primary molar which can affect the growing permanent tooth your child.

Confidence in the required treatment procedure was very comforting for someone who was in severe pain. The appointment given after an preliminary examination started on time. The procedure, the risks and options were clearly explained in advance. The procedure itself was done with due care. I would happily recommend Dr. Kusum to anyone in need of a good dentist.
