The pulp of the tooth is the most sensitive part of its anatomy located in the center of the tooth. The tissue comprises of nerves, blood vessels, and connective tissue. The tooth pulp provides the tooth with nutrients to grow and develop. A bacterial infection or injury may cause an inflammation of the tooth pulp. Pulpotomy treatment involves removal of the infection from the pulp. In cases, where the infection is mild and has not yet spread to the entire pulp or the tooth roots, a pulpotomy is the obvious course of action. The infected tissue is removed from the crown leaving intact the vital uninfected portions of the pulp within the canals. The dentist uses a local anesthetic to numb any pain that may be felt during the procedure. He proceeds to remove and disinfect the affected areas. The empty pockets created after the treatments are filled with synthetic materials to maintain the structure and shape of the tooth. A stainless steel or porcelain crown is placed over the tooth to make it strong. The treatment is generally safe and can be completed in a single session. Pulpotomy treatment prevents the infection from spreading and controls further damage to the tooth structure. Timely intervention can save the tooth from decay and abscess. Preserving the tooth pulp is necessary for the long-term health of the tooth. The cost of the treatment varies from INR1000 to 2500 depending on the nature and severity of infection
