A child undergoing a root canal treatment.

Pulpotomy for Kids in Beaufort

This is often referred to as a root canal for baby teeth. Sometimes your child may experience tooth pain due to injury or a large cavity reaching the nerve of the tooth. In these cases, Dr. Karen may recommend a pulpotomy to remove the affected tissue and cover the remaining healthy tissue with a special medicated protectant. In many cases, this can prevent extracting teeth that can otherwise be saved! As this procedure weakens the tooth, crowns are almost always recommended afterwards to improve the tooth’s structural integrity. Call us at (843) 321-9944 to schedule an appointment for your child.
