Buffalo Root Canal Specialist Discusses Pulpotomies and Pulpectomies For Children
As a Buffalo Root Canal Specialist, I often talk to parents about the benefit of a pulpotomy or pulpectomy for their child.
- Adolescents between the ages of 7 and 12 may not require root canal treatment, as their teeth are still in the development phase.
- A child’s kiddy root canal or baby root canal is also known as a pulpotomy or pulpectomy.
- This procedure removes most of the pulp – the blood and nerve supply – from the tooth.
- Recent studies suggest that stem cells residing in the pulps of adolescents can spur full root growth, and heal the pulp after infection or injury.
