This procedure is carried out when the tooth is damaged and there are chances of damage to the tooth root. Root canalling is done in order to prevent extraction of tooth (by creating a canal).

B. Pulpotomy- This is carried out prior to the canalling treatment which involves opening the tooth’s pulp chamber and removing the infected portion- usually done for maintaining the vitality of the pulp tissue.

C. Pulpectomy- With this process, the entire pulp is removed for alleviating pain and suffering of the patient. Pulpectomy is advanced form of pulpotomy.

Carried out when full blown root canal surgery does not seem to provide any benefits to the patient.
