Pulpotomy Procedures

Dental Pulpotomy for Kids in Rome, GA

  • Partial or Baby Root Canal for Kids in Rome, GA

  • Prevent Tooth Loss Due to Decay and Infections

  • Necessary for Maintaining Primary Teeth and Jaw Structure

A Dental pulpotomy is performed on children’s primary or milk teeth to help restore or save them from severe dental cavities or infection. When left untreated, cavities or tooth decay will destroy not only the enamel or outer layer of the tooth but also the soft pulp inside. Infection may also do the same kind of damage. Broken or cracked teeth due to trauma or falls can cause bacteria to enter the soft pulp inside children’s teeth and cause infections.

A pulpotomy in children helps to keep their teeth despite any decay and infections. Instead of extracting the whole tooth, this procedure only removes the damaged pulp and preserves the rest, thus allowing the tooth to remain in place, grow, and mature.

Growing up with a full set of properly erupted baby or primary teeth helps maintain the jaw structure of kids and ensure their adult or permanent teeth emerge properly spaced.

What to Expect From Dental Pulpotomy on Baby Teeth

  • Pain-Free Pulpotomy Procedures in Rome, GA

  • Safely Administered Anesthesia by Experienced Staff

  • Antibiotics and Dental Exam Necessary Before Proceeding

Dentists in our Rome, GA clinic examine the teeth to see if they can be repaired and what the severity of the condition truly requires. An x-ray may be used to determine the extent of the decay or infection’s damage.

Dental pulpotomy in a child’s tooth is a completely pain-free procedure. In our Rome, GA dental clinic, we administer general anesthesia or light sedation to ensure a painless procedure. Moreover, the procedure isn’t long at all.

Our dentists also numb the area around the affected teeth. After removing dental cavities, we will drill into the enamel to open up the pulp chamber. Once the pulp is exposed, we will remove the infected or decayed part. Therapeutic dressing is applied afterward to ensure the tooth nerve does not die. Lastly, the pulp chamber is sealed, and we bond a crown to our patient’s tooth.

My 6 year old has terrible anxiety issues with going to the dentist. This office is more than accommodating and never makes us feel like anything negative, just very patient. They’ve did 2-part appts for him just trying to go by what they thought was too much for him to handle. I’m so thankful for this office and their great staff. I really do feel like my kids matter here and appreciate every bit of their compassion and patience. I feel a warm welcomed genuine place here and so does everyone else I know who chooses to come to this office. I would recommend anyone here any day and give it 7 stars.

I am so glad I made an appointment for my grandchildren here. They couldn’t have been nicer. Everyone in the office was polite and kind. We had a very bad experience in Ringgold and they have restored my trust in pediatric dental care. We were back to today for clean and check up. I absolutely love this staff. Brittany took the time to explain exactly what was going on with Luke’s wisdom teeth I was thrilled that they added sealant to his molars . If you had a bad experience at this office it had to be before this group started their practice. I wish they could be my dentist. We had a appointment for a cleaning today 6/15/22 . Thanks to the office manager and the hard work they do helping me schedule this appointment. We had to cancel our last appointment due to basketball camp. My grandchildren are getting older and it difficult to work with them because of the different activities ,school plus part time jobs. I appreciate them for helping me help them maintain their dental health. Always cheerful and kind. I highly recommend them to everyone with children.
