Pulpectomy treatment involves the treatment of the entire pulp of a tooth in babies. Dentists usually suggest to get pulpectomy in primary tooth done when a primary or baby tooth gets extensively decayed or damaged so much so that the nerve of the tooth has been affected causing the tooth to die. The damage done to the pulp become visible when a pocket of pus is formed at the tip of the root of the affected tooth. If ignored and left untreated, the infection in the tooth cans spread thus causing additional damage to the teeth, the root and also to the bone around the tooth. This can make the tooth fall off. Pulpectomy in deciduous teeth or primary teeth is generally performed by a paediatric dentist. In the process of treatment the dentist makes a small hole in the tooth. The infected or diseased pulp, the bacteria and the decay are entirely removed, the canals cleaned, medicated and filled with a re-absorbable material, thus restoring the normal function of the tooth. This is a highly effective and a successful form of treatment that lasts for long. However, re-treating a tooth or extracting it altogether due to some kind of dental infection might become necessary in certain occasions. Having a pulpectomy treatment done on baby tooth is one of the best options to save a tooth in the absence of which the entire tooth has to be extracted or removed. The treatment cost typically ranges from $90 - $250 or more depending on the number of tooth being treated and also the fees of the dentist.
