It’s the process of removing all the pulp from a tooth’s roots and crown. The pulp is a very soft material that comprises nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. Generally, dentists perform Pulpectomy in kids for saving their highly infected primary/baby teeth. This is why the procedure is also named Kids’ Root Canal Treatment. A Pulpectomy is the first part of the RCT in permanent teeth.
Before 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 anaesthesia for eradicating the 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.
Dr 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.
The goal of the Advanced Dental Clinic is to preserve your baby’s tooth and keep it healthy until the tooth falls out naturally. If your child needs to undergo the Pulpectomy process, feel free to contact us!
It’s a process utilized for trying to spare a highly decayed tooth alongside an infected pulp. Sometimes it is known as a baby root canal because it is usually performed on baby teeth, particularly molars.
Our dentist will begin by comforting the patient applying anesthesia. We provide many sedation choices for your little champ and these will be discussed in detail with you before the process.
Amid the process, our dentist will isolate the targeted tooth using a rubber dam or sheet. He will utilize a particular appliance for removing the decayed portions of the tooth. The dentist utilizes a spoon excavator for removing the pulp’s infected part in the crown of the tooth. He will sterilize the tooth and the remaining pulp using medicines. Then he will apply putty for sealing the remaining tooth. He will choose the right sized stainless steel crown and bond it to your kid’s tooth.
The dentist will test your kid 6 months later for seeing how properly the tooth is healing. Some kids grow infections. In a few cases, the crown falls out, particularly if the kid eats sticky food.
Both processes are utilized for saving infected teeth and pulps. In a Pulpectomy, the dentist removes all of the pulp or applies cement in the root to replace the pulp. In a Pulpotomy, the dentist just removes the pulp in the crown of the tooth while leaving it in the roots.
When the inflamed pulp is confined to the tooth’s crown, a Pulpotomy is performed. The tooth should be restorable. In case it is weak or damaged, the dentist will need to remove it. A kid in good health will be the best candidate for a Pulpotomy. Kids with severe health issues can be prone to bacterial infections; hence they are not good candidates.
Your kid may require space maintainers in case he/she loses teeth early or gets a primary/baby tooth removed because of tooth decay. In terms of any aforesaid case, you must know the advantages of using a space maintainer and how it is helpful in supporting your kid’s dental wellbeing.
This tool is tailor-made by an orthodontist in metal or acrylic material. It can be either cemented in a kid’s mouth or removable. It is used for keeping the space open for enabling the permanent teeth to appear and come into place. Primary teeth are essential for the growth of jawbones, muscles, and teeth and help guide the permanent teeth into place when the primary teeth are lost. In case the space is unmaintained, teeth can move to the open space and orthodontic treatment may be needed. Not every kid who loses a primary tooth early or to tooth decays needs a space maintainer; nevertheless, an expert consultation with our orthodontist or dentist at Advanced Dental Clinic must be conducted to decide if the use of space maintainers is required.
Two types of space maintainers for kids include:
1. Fixed – 4 different types of Fixed Space Maintainers are available – Lingual, Distal Shoe, Crown & Loop, and Unilateral.
2. Removable – These are the same as orthodontic tools and are generally made of acrylic. In a few cases, an artificial tooth is possibly utilized for filling a space that should be open for the non-erupted tooth.
Once our dentist or orthodontist makes the appliance, it takes the kid some days for being prepared to wearing the fixed or removable space maintainer. Our dentist will review with the kid and parent for thoroughly cleaning the space maintainers and keeping the gum tissue free of plaque and healthy. Proper guidance for teeth brushing and flossing will be offered for enhanced oral hygiene.
In terms of a removable space maintainer, your child must avoid sugary and chewy foods, which may get caught or loosen on this dental apparatus. The appliance must not be pushed or pressed using fingers or the tongue as it could bend or loosen the space maintainer.
Our dentist or orthodontist will see the child regularly to monitor his/her treatment progress with the space maintainers. Book an appointment with our dental expert for professional cleaning!
Stainless steel crowns, also named as silver caps or crowns, are a common process, which restores baby teeth that are affected with large cavities or those that had a baby root canal (Pulpotomy). Albeit maximum teeth can be filled using a silver or white filling material, stainless steel crowns are till now the most durable and predictable choice for fixing baby teeth with damaged enamel, large defects, or cavities. At Advanced Dental Clinic, we utilize stainless steel crowns for saving a baby tooth and prevent the risk of infection and pain.
Stainless steel crowns are placed for the following conditions:
1. They are often used as space maintainers.
2. They treat a tooth with root canal treatment.
3. They treat tooth decay that involves more than 2 surfaces of a tooth.
4. Other developmental issues that affect the tooth structure badly.
Three main types of stainless steel crowns are available:
1. Crowns that have been pre-crimped and pre-formed.
2. Crowns with straight sides and margins.
3. Aesthetic crowns
4. Benefits of Stainless Steel Crowns
In case the baby tooth of your kid has chronic decay that can’t be treated using a filling, our dentist may recommend a stainless steel crown. This will shield the entire tooth and there will be less possibility for your kid to grow sensitivity or need more treatments on the tooth in the future. Sometimes a stainless steel crown works better than a metal filling in kids under the age of four. The stainless steel crown for baby teeth is less expensive than an adult crown.
Any cavity that is addressed must be treated instantly for preventing the issue from getting worse. In case your kid has not undergone a dental test, book an appointment with our dental professional at Advanced Dental Clinic today!
Dental crowns replace tooth structure that is possibly missing because of tooth decay or injury. Crowns cover teeth to strengthen and safeguard them. Placing a crown on baby teeth is often the best treatment for kids. Placing a tooth-colored crown for kids saves their natural smile and is a better choice than stainless steel crowns.
If tooth decay is left untreated, it can spread infection and lead to pain and other health issues. If your kid grows very large cavities that a filling cannot repair, a dental crown is suggested for saving the tooth. Tooth-colored crowns are placed on front teeth used for biting, or back molar teeth that are essential for chewing. In both cases, it helps shield the tooth from further breaking, cracking, or decay.
Our dentist places dental crowns for kids in only one visit. First, he numbs the area around the infected tooth using topical gel on the gum tissue before injecting the local anesthesia. After numbing, he removes the decayed tooth carefully and shapes it for preparing it for the crown. Based on the type of tooth-colored crown to be used, a kid may or may not get an impression of the area. After preparing the crown, the dentist checks the placement. If all are correct, he cements the crown into place. Then, he will check the bite and make some modifications if required.
Until the numbness goes away, your kid must maintain his eating and be careful about biting and chewing. After the crown process, the kid may feel discomfort because of gum or tooth irritation that lasts less than one day. Pain relief medication may help in this. In case your kid feels extreme discomfort, contact our dentist right away. Ensure to schedule dental cleanings and tests for your kid every 6 months so our dentist can monitor the crown and be sure that it’s working properly.
