Children’s Pulpotomies in Las Vegas

Sometimes tooth decay is so severe that it causes an infection that reaches the pulp of the tooth. Left untreated, this can lead to excruciating pain for your child as well as early tooth loss.

In other cases, your child may fall and crack a tooth, leading to infection. This, too, can eventually reach the pulp, which is full of nerves.

A pulpotomy is a procedure that will save your child’s tooth after infection reaches the pulp. It removes the decay, cleans, disinfects, and seals the inside of the tooth. This stops the decay from spreading and prevents your child from prematurely losing teeth.

How do we do it?

  • We use laughing gas or local anesthesia to make your child comfortable
  • We remove the infected and damaged pulp from the tooth
  • We apply a special medication to prevent additional infection
  • We protect the tooth with a filling or crown as it will be weakened
  • We provide you with post-op instructions to keep your child comfortable
