Since oral care is less and sugar consumption is higher in children, caries can develop much faster and faster. In such cases, a bruise that is thought to have just started may actually have progressed quite a bit and have reached the nerves. In such a case, amputation treatment is usually applied before root canal treatment for children and sometimes for very young people. During the amputation treatment, all the caries and nerve tissue in the crown of the tooth visible in the mouth are cleaned. The nerves and vessels in the roots are left. Then, the inside of the tooth is intervened with special drugs and the tooth is filled.
Amputation treatment is a treatment method used in primary or molar teeth that are about to fall out, and in permanent first molars with 6-year-old teeth.
