NW Reno Pediatric Dentist Dr. Jacqueline Alford with her son 2019

Pediatric Root Canals

When a cavity is large and involves the nerve of a baby tooth, the nerve (pulp) can be partially (pulpotomy) or completely (pulpectomy) removed at the same time as the cavity.


An agent is then placed to prevent bacterial growth and to calm any remaining nerve tissue, and a final restoration in the form of a crown is placed.


This “nerve treatment,” is used to maintain the tooth to prevent premature loss and subsequent need for space maintenance.
