The dental pulp is the living part of the tooth. It contains nerve endings and blood vessels that keep your tooth alive and vital. When the pulp gets infected pulpectomy is the best treatment option to save the teeth. In pulpectomy, the entire pulp is removed from the infected primary tooth to relieve pain and prevent extraction of the tooth. The root canal is then filled with a suitable resorbable material.
Why is Pulpectomy preferable to Extraction?
The goal of pulpectomy is to keep all milk or primary teeth healthy in order for the child to correctly eat, speak, and swallow. Early primary tooth loss might close the space needed for permanent teeth to develop, resulting in tooth misalignment. Keeping the infected tooth until the time comes for the permanent tooth to emerge will keep the space needed for the erupting tooth.
