The first part of the procedure is to numb the area using a local anesthetic. This makes the procedure more comfortable for you or your child. We then work to remove any decay from the tooth that is present. A small portion of the inner pulp, or nerve, of the tooth is removed. The rest of the pulp remains intact so that it can keep the tooth vital for as long as possible. We then pack the tooth with a medicated filling material and close it with a tooth-colored filling.
