Each tooth has a pulp inside that contains important nerves. In case the pulp is affected, due to caries, trauma or other reasons, the pulp therapy is a necessary procedure to save the tooth. The most common form of pulp therapy in your child’s teeth is the pulpotomy therapy. Pulpotomy removes the infected part of the pulp, and then a sedative medication is applied to protect the remaining healthy pulp tissue. This procedure is followed usually by a stainless-steel crown as a final restoration to protect the whole tooth.
