Dr. Albert Evans and our team do everything possible to help you keep your child’s mouth free from cavities and infection. Four to six months after your child’s teeth begin to erupt, this is normally 12-14 months of age, schedule an appointment with Dr. Evans. Pediatric dentists are specially trained to provide dental care for infants and young children to ensure that they remain healthy and develop correctly. However, sometimes a tooth becomes so severely infected that it requires treatment in order for your child to recover. If a cavity develops we restore it with a tooth-colored composite filling. Sometimes decay involves the pulp which requires nerve therapy (pulpotomy or baby tooth root canal) to remove infected and decayed tissue from inside your child’s mouth and restore their oral health and function. Give us a call at 801-562-8700 to schedule a consultation and learn more about how pulpotomy in Cottonwood Heights, Utah, can help your child.
