How is Pulpectomy Performed?
performing Pulpectomy at Advanced Dental Clinic, our dentist prescribes some
antibiotic medicines to the patient for identifying bacterial infection. The
process begins with applying topical anesthesia for eradicating kid’s
discomfort. The dental specialist drills a hole into the tooth for removing the
infected pulp with the help of broaches. He also drills out the nerve inside
the pulp using files. To ensure that all infected tissues and debris are
removed, our dentist would use different sized files before irrigating the
canal using a blend of sodium hypochlorite and surface modifiers or sodium
hypochlorite solution. He fills the pulp chamber and root canal using a
non-resorbable, inert material after irrigation. Then he caps the tooth with a
crown that can be bonded temporarily to the basic structure with dental cement.

Neha will discuss the risks and results of the process with you in advance. She
will answer every question. Before the process, she will numb or sedate the
area and she will administer this sedation based on the recommendation for your
kid. She will utilize a drill and other tools for removing the infected portion
of the tooth. Diseased pulp will be extracted and medicines will be given over
the remaining area. A temporary filling follows this. In the case of a primary
tooth, a crown is possibly positioned on the tooth. Very minimal discomfort can
be felt amid the process. Our dentist will guide you on handling the soreness
in the mouth or signs of concern to observe after the process.
