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.
