Premature loss of primary molars can affect overall oral health in several ways including loss of arch length and insufficient space for erupting premolars. Pulpectomy treatment is recommended to restore a damaged tooth in young children and maintain it until they are replaced by permanent teeth. The procedure involves the treatment and removal of infections of the tooth pulp. The treatment is usually recommended for severe bacterial infections, cavities or injury that has spread to the dental nerves leading to a tooth abscess. In permanent teeth with immature roots, the pulp is necessary to promote growth. Retention of a permanent tooth, in the long run, requires a root with a favorable crown to root ratio and substantial crown depth. However, in cases of severe infection, the pulp may be removed to save the teeth. Pulpectomy is recommended when the complete tooth pulp is infected. The treatment involves removal of the entire tooth pulp from the crown and the root. The root canal is cleaned and disinfected. The disinfected area is filled with synthetic alternatives. The opening is then sealed off with a rubber material to protect the tooth from further damage. A crown may be placed on the tooth to enhance its cosmetic appeal. The child may require special attention after the procedure. The dentist may recommend eating or biting with care until the healing process is complete. The procedure is usually completed in a single session. The cost varies from 2500 to 3500 per tooth.
