The Pulp Therapy Guideline (AAPD Reference Manual, 2013–14) states that teeth diagnosed as having a “normal pulp” or “reversible pulpitis” are classified as having vital pulps and treated with vital pulp therapy. This will include an extraoral examination asking about and looking for facial swelling or tenderness. A primary molar with deep distal caries near the pulp without gingival swelling, but has pain of a short duration when the child chews a candy, can be easily misdiagnosed as vital.

Pulpectomy procedures in primary molar teeth Obturation of a retained primary mandibular second molar using mineral trioxide aggregate: A case report. The procedure is mainly performed in children with primary teeth (milk teeth) Coll et al. Pulpectomy is a procedure to remove all the pulp from the crown and roots of a tooth. Due to the complex morphology of the root canal system in primary teeth, the clinician must rely primarily on chemical cleansing and sterilization and secondarily on mechanical instrumentation during pulpectomy procedure. Cleghorn BM, Boorberg NB, Christie WH. Pulpectomy is a conservative treatment approach to preventing the premature loss of primary teeth that can result in loss of arch length, insufficient space for erupting permanent teeth, impaction of premolars, and mesial tipping of molar teeth adjacent to the lost primary molar.

Endodontic treatment of primary teeth using a combination of antibacterial drugs. A pulpectomy involves removing the entire pulp from a primary tooth in an attempt to relieve pain associated with an infection and to prevent a complete extraction of the tooth. Sletten DW, Smith BM, Southard KA, Casko JS, Southard TE. Zinc oxide eugenol or zinc oxide eugenol/iodoform combined with Ca(OH) 2 appears to be the materials of choice if primary teeth are not nearing exfoliation. However, primary molar pulpectomy is achievable with practice and appropriate patient selection. McDonald and Avery's Denitstry for the Child and Adolescent. Other than mechanical exposure in a healthy tooth, all pulp exposures in primary teeth should be treated with pulpot0my, pulpectomy, or extraction. Here's what you need to know about the symptoms and how dentists can diagnose and treat this condition. Sharaf AA, Farsi NM. Ingle's Endodontics. Usually, baby teeth have shorter roots that are meant to be eventually reabsorbed by the body. 2.5 Pulpectomy It is acknowledged that primary molar radicular morphology, inherent physiological root resorption and the close proximity of the permanent successor tooth are complicating factors in the pulpectomy procedure. Tannure PN, Barcelos R, Portela MB, Gleiser R, Primo LG. Discolouration potential of endodontic procedures and materials: A review. As stated previously, the duration of pain in a primary tooth is not a critical assessment as to the degree of pulpal inflammation (Farooq et al., 2000). A review of obturating materials for primary teeth. Nurko C, Garcia-Godoy F. Evaluation of a calcium hydroxide/iodoform paste (Vitapex) in root canal therapy for primary teeth. Recent studies demonstrated the potential application of different diagnostic tools such as electric pulp testers. Pediatr Dent 2008;30:42-8. According to Camp (2008), spontaneous pain is a persistent or throbbing pain that occurs without provocation or persists long after the causative factor has been removed. In a histologic study of deep carious lesions in primary teeth (Guthrie et al., 1965), it was demonstrated that a history of spontaneous toothache is associated with extensive histologic pulpal degenerative changes that can extend into the root canals. In addition, of the incisors that retained their dark color, Holan (2004) reported that 50% remained clinically asymptomatic and exfoliated even if they showed accelerated root resorption. This is known as Pulpectomy. 2. Pediatric endodontics. Amorim Lde F, Toledo OA, Estrela CR, Decurcio Dde A, Estrela C.

Endod Top 2012;23:41-9. It is unwise to maintain untreated infected primary teeth in the mouth. To avoid untoward changes when primary teeth are replaced by permanent teeth, resorption of the material used in primary teeth root canal filling should occur at the same rate as root resorption.

If your child complains of pain when cold, hot or sweet things touch their tooth/teeth, it may mean that he/she has pulpitis. Every one of your child’s teeth has a sensitive inner dental pulp, which is the living part of the tooth. Figure 7.2 (a) Pretreatment radiograph of a mandibular first primary molar without soft tissue swelling but an unclear history of pain that made the dentist unsure of the diagnosis. Kabnick LS. Pulp is the soft inner material that contains connective tissue, blood vessels, and nerves. The plan is to conduct a randomized controlled trial with a 1:1 ratio for group allocation at a teaching university pediatric dentistry clinic between January 2021 and December 2021. A pulpectomy may be performed on primary teeth when the coronal pulp tissue and the tissue entering the pulp canals are vital but show clinical evidence of hyperemia (Fig. A 38-year-old member asked: Would permanent teeth arise normally after a pulpectomy? Answered by Dr. Peter Karsant: Pulpectomy: Yes all should be well. Good chemico-biomechanical preparation of primary canals cannot guarantee complete removal of this vital tissue from inaccessible areas. ASDC J Dent Child 2002;69:156-60, 124. There is almost no correlation between the clinical symptoms the child presents with and the histopathologic condition of the tooth, which complicates diagnosis of pulpal health in children (Mass et al., 1995). Any planned pulpectomy treatment must include consideration of the restorability of the tooth, the patient’s medical history, whether to extract, how long is the likely exfoliation of the tooth in question, and the importance of the tooth to prevent space loss (especially second primary molars before the first permanent molar has erupted). Int J Paediatr Dent 2006;16 Suppl 1:15-23. The root and root canal morphology of deciduous molars shows wide anatomical variations, either in number or in shape. Ozalp N, Saroðlu I, Sönmez H.

In primary teeth with irreversible pulpal changes, ZOE pulpectomies yielded similar outcomes as Vitapex and more favorable than Sealapex, a calcium hydroxide cement (SybronEndo, Orange, CA), although there was no agreement with regard to filling materials’ resorption . Ahmed HM. For teeth with pain, there were 18 patients who presented with pain as the chief complaint, which was not reported by Coll et al. Resorption of a calcium hydroxide/iodoform paste (Vitapex) in root canal therapy for primary teeth: A case report. McDonald RE, Avery DR, Dean JA. Look for teeth with caries that show a missing filling, soft tissue redness, fluctuance, or a draining fistula. A vital pulpotomy was planned because the tooth’s pulp was judged as vital. I recommend using a finger to press on a nonsuspicious tooth first. Do not use an instrument handle to tap on the tooth because this can be misunderstood in a child as pain. The tooth’s pulp had irreversible pulpitis, which was not clinically apparent and is a contraindication for vital pulp treatment. Braz Dent J 2006;17:317-22. J Clin Pediatr Dent 2011;36:139-44. For primary teeth, the appropriate clinical tests are palpation, percussion, and mobility, as thermal and electric pulp tests are unreliable (Camp, 2008). The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD; AAPD Reference Manual, 2013–14) Guideline on Pulp Therapy states that the type of pulpal treatment depends on whether the pulp is vital or nonvital. Unlike pulpotomy, pulpectomy is done to remove all the pulp, plus the roots of an infected tooth. There is evidence in primary molars (Farooq et al., 2000) that pain can last up to 20 min and still be reversible pulpitis because a child may complain while a piece of candy or food is lodged in the cavitated or interproximal lesion. Pinky C, Shashibhushan KK, Subbareddy VV. Look for teeth with caries that show a missing filling, soft tissue redness, fluctuance, or a draining fistula. The success of pulpectomy in primary teeth depends on selecting the ideal root canal filling material. A child with a history of spontaneous pain in a primary tooth should not receive a vital pulp treatment because they are candidates for pulpectomy or extraction (Camp, 2008). Eur J Orthod 2008;30:254-61. Tunc ES, Bayrak S. Usage of white mineral trioxide aggregate in a non-vital primary molar with no permanent successor.
