A pulpotomy is root canal treatment in a baby tooth, but does not take as long as an adult root canal, since only the pulp is removed. If your child has been complaining of pain in a tooth and you can visibly see redness and swelling surrounding the tooth, it would be wise to contact Moats Dental. Dr. Moats Dental can examine your child’s tooth and determine if a pulpotomy in Buffalo Grove, Illinois, is the best solution. Call us at 847-279-1440 for an appointment with our dentist.
