Maintaining the health of a child’s primary teeth is essential for future dental health. The primary teeth are vital for developing eating and speaking skills and a well-aligned set of strong permanent teeth. However, when primary teeth undergo trauma or excessive decay, the loss of tooth integrity can endanger the entire area.

At Golestani Dental Group, our professionals understand the importance of protecting a child’s baby teeth until they are ready to fall out naturally. We offer pediatric pulpotomy services to repair any infection within the tooth structure as fully as possible. A pulpotomy or pulpectomy is sometimes referred to as a children’s root canal because it is basically the baby tooth version of a root canal.

Pulpotomy / Pulpectomy (AKA BABY ROOT CANAL) in New Jersey 

Trauma, excessive tooth decay, and several genetic conditions may compromise the integrity of a baby tooth. This increases the risk of infection in the surrounding teeth. Root canals are not generally performed on baby teeth, however, the pulpotomy or pulpectomy is basically the baby tooth version of this procedure.

Regular dental checkups and good oral hygiene minimize the risk of tooth decay. However, treatment is sometimes necessary for tooth decay that has reached the nerve or pulp within a primary tooth. If not, it will be almost impossible to heal the tooth or protect the surrounding teeth and gums.

Golestani Dental Group offers two similar procedures to address trauma or excessive damage to primary teeth: a pulpotomy and a pulpectomy. Pulpotomy services treat the crown only, removing damage and sealing the tooth. A pulpectomy is for more extensive damage or infection that reaches the tooth’s root. 

If you suspect your child may need a baby tooth root canal in New Jersey, please reach out for more information. A pulpotomy or pulpectomy may be necessary to remove infection and protect your child’s surrounding teeth.

What To Expect During Pulpotomy Treatment in New Jersey Dental Offices

A pulpotomy is a standard procedure that is highly effective. It treats trauma or excessive infection at the crown or tip of a tooth. Golestani Dental Group is a leader in pulpotomy treatment in New Jersey, and our friendly dental professionals will make you and your family feel at ease about the quick procedure. 

We begin with X-rays of the teeth and a complete examination.  Our dentists aim to assess the depth and severity of tooth decay or trauma to determine the most effective treatment. A pulpotomy removes infected pulp from the chamber, typically in a baby molar. 

When our dentists remove infected or damaged nerve tissue, it is usually only from the top of the tooth or crown. The lower root or nerve remains intact. They then fill the space with dental cement and affix the tooth with a stainless-steel crown (a safe and effective temporary solution for protecting a primary tooth before the growth of a permanent tooth).

Children suffering from tooth trauma or decay benefit from a pulpotomy in several ways:

  • Relief from tooth pain or discomfort 
  • Protection against infection
  • Structural support for incoming permanent tooth development
  • Better dental health

Pulpotomies are not always the right solution, and their effectiveness depends on the extent of the decay or damage in the tooth. Regular visits to trusted dentists like Golestani Dental Group will detect trauma and decay early and handle the treatment while the damage is avoidable. If there is advanced damage, our dentists might recommend a safe and effective course of another treatment. 

We are available to take on New Jersey patients in both our locations: Harrison (973-484-4200) and Livingston (973-597-1818). Call us today, and let our friendly staff show you the difference that quality service can make to your family’s dental health.
