If your child has a damaged tooth, there is a chance that an infection can reach the pulp at the center of the tooth, causing pain and swelling. If your child has an infected primary or baby tooth, our dentist, may want to perform a pulpotomy, or root canal for baby teeth. Dr. Michael Perez offers pulpotomies in Coral Gables, Florida. This treatment can remove the infection and preserve your child’s smile. To see if this treatment is right for your child, call Gables Exceptional Smiles at 305-442-9499.
