When baby or adult teeth have large cavities that are either close to or into the nerve tissue, the tooth may require a pulpal therapy, such as a pulpotomy (removal of a portion of the infected nerve tissue leaving healthy tissue), pulpectomy (removal of entire nerve tissue from canals), or root canal therapy.  Some signs and symptoms for possible pulpal therapy:

  • An abscess (or pimple) on the gums.
  • Sensitivity to hot and cold.
  • Severe toothache pain.
  • Sometimes no symptoms are present.
  • Swelling and/or tenderness.
