Unfortunately, teeth become infected from time to time. If it happens to your child, you should have that infection treated as soon as possible. This will not only relieve your child’s discomfort, but will also keep them healthy. One of the ways that Desert Sun Pediatric Dentistry can treat an infected primary tooth is through a pulpotomy, also known as a baby root canal, in Mesa, Arizona. It is important to your child’s development that their primary teeth stay in place until their adult teeth are ready to come in. If your child is suffering with a toothache, call 480-275-5099 today to plan a visit with our pediatric dentist, Dr. J. Cam West.
