Anaheim Baby Root Canal (Pulpotomy)

Baby Root Canals

If your child has a very deep
cavity, the blood vessel and nerve (pulp) inside the tooth could become infected.
A baby root canal, also called pulpotomy, is a procedure offered at
StarshipM Children’s Dentistry and Orthodontics that cleans and disinfects the damaged tooth.

The following are common symptoms your child may experience:

  • Constant throbbing pain
  • Toothache at nighttime, waking up due to pain
  • Sensitivity to hot or cold foods/drinks
  • Swelling and redness around a tooth

If you need more information about baby root canals, please call our office at (714) 970-4560 for an appointment.

Baby Root Canal for Children

The goal of baby root canal treatment is to save the badly decayed tooth
until natural exfoliation. Although this baby tooth will exfoliate, it
is important to keep until natural exfoliation because baby teeth play
a vital role in a child’s physical, emotional, and social development.

Taking care of Baby Teeth is important because they:

  • Help proper chewing and eating habits
  • Help prevent infection spreading to other areas of the body
  • Guide permanent teeth alignment
  • Affect the jaw bones and muscle development
  • Affect speech development

The dentist will first make the patient comfortable by delivering anesthesia.
During the procedure, the tooth that needs treatment will be isolated
with a rubber sheet or another isolation system. Our doctor will remove
all the cavities in the tooth and kill any bacteria in the pulp area with
medication. The empty hole in the tooth will be then sealed with a putty.
Finally, the tooth will be restored to normal function with a crown to
prevent further damage.
