Treatment Protocols

When deciduous teeth have extensive damage and simple filling is not appropriate, a crown (case) made of metal material can be placed on the tooth to help the tooth from further stress.

If the pulp of the deciduous tooth is also infected then a pulpotomy (pediatric root canal) may be recommended to keep it in the barrier as long as possible. The role of neonatal tooth preservation is important and lies in facilitating the dissection of permanent teeth.

If the infection has caused so much inflammation that it has led to abscess, extraction of the deciduous tooth may be a one-way street.
