The finest root canal treatment in Sioux Falls!

Pulpotomy

Pulpotomy is a procedure that used to be reserved for primary (baby) teeth only. With new advancements in biologic materials and advanced cleaning and disinfection, we can now treat some permanent teeth with this conservative approach. In select cases, only the pulp tissue in the upper part of the tooth (crown) is inflamed, while the tissue in the roots is healthy. In this situation, we can often remove only the inflamed tissue within the crown using the GentleWave® System, and leave the healthy tissue in the roots. We then cover that healthy tissue with a new biologic material designed specifically for this purpose.  A final restoration, a filling or crown, is placed over that. The pulpotomy procedure is normally done in one visit. 

 

Please ask if you are a candidate for this conservative treatment.
