Baby Tooth Root Canal Treatment for Kids in Salisbury

Commonly referred to a “baby tooth root canal,” a pulpotomy is a treatment in which a pediatric dentist removes and sterilizes nerve tissue that has been infected by a dental cavity or injury. After removal of the affected nerve, Dr. Matt will place a special antibacterial medicine into the tooth prior to restoration of the tooth structure. After application of the medicine, we almost always recommend a pediatric crown on the tooth to ensure adequate longevity and structural integrity. If your child needs a baby tooth root canal, call us at (410) 202-8515 to schedule a consultation with Dr. Matt.
