If the pulp in a child’s tooth is decayed, but the pulp in the tooth’s root is healthy, Dr. Valerie Foster may recommend that your child receive a pulpotomy in Aloha, Oregon. A pulpotomy is also performed when a tooth’s pulp becomes exposed because of injury or trauma. If your child does need this treatment, our dentist and team will make sure he or she is comfortable during and after the procedure.
