Pulpectomy (infant root canal)

The pulpectomy is the removal of necrotic pulp tissue followed by filling the root canals with resorbable cement.

Treatment Objectives for Primary Tooth Pulpectomy

  • Maintain the tooth free of infection,
  • Biomechanically cleanse and obturate the root canals,
  • Promote physiologic root resorption, and
  • Hold the space for the erupting permanent tooth.

We use a Japanese material to obturate the root called vitapex and we finish the treatment with a crown.
