When bacteria from cavities reach the nerve of primary teeth, it is important to remove the nerve of the tooth to avoid the chance of an abscess. Sometimes we remove only the top part of the nerve, a Pulpotomy, and sometimes we remove the entire nerve, a Pulpectomy. Once the nerve is removed, material is placed to calm the nerve prior to the final restoration. Our Lynchburg dentist office specializes in these types of procedures.
