Medigy: Pulpotomy

A pulpotomy is a dental procedure that involves removing the inflamed or infected pulp (the living tissue inside a tooth that contains nerves and blood vessels) from the crown portion of a primary (baby) or permanent tooth and then placing a medicament to preserve the remaining healthy pulp and to promote the formation of a protective barrier, called a ““pulp cap”” over the exposed pulp tissue. This procedure is also known as a ““baby root canal”” or ““pulpectomy””. The main goal of a pulpotomy is to save the tooth, which can be performed when the tooth has been diagnosed with reversible pulpitis, or when the tooth is severely decayed or fractured and the pulp is exposed. The tooth is then restored with a filling or a stainless steel crown, depending on the extent of the decay or injury. Pulpotomy is a commonly used procedure in pediatric dentistry as it helps to preserve the natural tooth, prevent the spread of infection and avoid the need for more invasive treatments such as tooth extraction or endodontic therapy.
