Pulp/Nerve Treatment (Pulpotomy/Pulpectomy) in San Marcos, CA
Cavities that grow close to the nerve can cause toothaches, nerve irritation or infection. If a cavity is close to or affecting the nerve we will clean out the contaminated part of the nerve and place an antibacterial agent on top of remaining part of the nerve. Afterwards, a crown is placed on the treated tooth to provide structural support and completely seal the remaining nerve from contamination. This procedure is more commonly known as a “baby root canal” or pulp therapy. Pediatric Dentistry of San Marcos does not use formocresol which contains formaldehyde for pulp treatment. Your child’s health and safety is always our number one priority.
