Russell di Bari, DDS – Sunnyvale Baby Root Canal Specialist
The pulp of the tooth is the inner core of the tooth which contains nerves, blood vessels, tissue and cells. We use pulp therapy in pediatric dentistry to maintain the integrity of the tooth that has been impacted so that the tooth is not lost.
There are several reasons that a tooth can require pulp therapy including cavities (dental caries) and traumatic injury. We also refer to pulp therapy as nerve treatment, a pulpectomy, a pulpotomy, or a children’s root canal.
