RCT IN CHILDREN

When the nerve or pulp tissue of a primary or permanent tooth is infected, it needs to be treated to prevent a dental abscess and loss of the tooth. The two methods of treating infected dental nerve tissue are the pulpotomy and pulpectomy. The ultimate objective of these procedures is to save the tooth, so that it will maintain the integrity and function of the dental arch.

Our pedodontic wing provides following pediatric pulp treatment:
• Pulpotomy for Primary Teeth
• Alternatives to Formocresol in Primary Teeth
• Pulpotomy for Young Permanent Teeth
• Pulp Morphology
• Pulpectomy for Primary Teeth

Pulpotomy for Primary Teeth
Definition: the surgical removal of the entire coronal pulp, leaving intact the vital radicular pulp within the canals.
Treatment Objectives for the Pulptomy
(1) amputate the infected coronal pulp,
(2) neutralize any residual infectious process,
(3) preserve the vitality of the radicular pulp.

When is Pulpotomy done?

(1) cariously exposed primary teeth, when their retention is more advantageous than extraction.
(2) when inflammation is confined to the coronal portion of the pulp.

Treatment Approaches for the Pulpotomy of Primary Teeth

• Devitalization: uses a 1:5 diluted formocresol (Buckley’s) technique, which results in partial devitalization with persistent chronic inflammation. Empirical success.
• Preservation: ferric sulfate maintains the vitality and normal histologic appearance of the entire radicular pulp.
