Our Baby Nerve Treatment Procedure

When carrying out nerve treatment on baby teeth, our specialist will remove the diseased pulp tissue from the tooth. The two most popular forms of nerve treatment in a baby’s teeth are pulpectomy and pulpotomy. The pulpectomy involves the entire pulp, and the diseased pulp tissue is entirely taken out from both the root and crown. 

The next step involves disinfecting and cleaning the canals, but in the case of primary teeth, they are packed with a resorbable material. The pulpotomy takes out the disease nerve tissue within the crown part of the tooth. An agent is then placed to stop bacterial growth and to relax the remaining nerve tissue. After a tooth has undergone nerve treatment, it becomes weak and usually requires a crown (or cap) placed over it.
