Nerve Treatment for Baby Teeth

If you think your child may have an infected tooth, please call Portland Children's Dentistry immediately to determine if a root canal is needed.Harmful bacteria in your mouth can lead to tooth decay and eventually cause infection. This is true for both primary and permanent teeth. If bacteria from a cavity spreads to the blood vessels and nerves that supply the tooth, it can cause pain or infection. Sensitivity, pain, swollen gums, or looseness of a tooth can be signs of an infection.

A pulpotomy may be indicated when bacteria gets to the nerves and blood vessels. In this case the infected tissue is removed and a material is placed that prevents the infection from growing any further. This may be a better option than removing the infected tooth, which could cause spacing and development issues as the child grows.
