Pediatric Root Canal Therapy
Nerve Treatment in Florissant
Often called a “nerve treatment”, a root canal, or pulpotomy, is indicated when the decay in a primary tooth is extensive and has reached the level of the pulp chamber/nerve.
All of the decay is removed and a special paste-like medication is inserted to allow the tooth to heal. This procedure also necessitates the need for a crown to be placed on the primary tooth until the tooth is shed normally.
