Stainless Steel Crowns and Pulpotomy

Stainless steel crowns are made with a combination of different metals. These are fitted on back baby (primary) teeth to protect them from decay and breakage.

Pulpotomy is the removal of the infected nerve (pulpal tissue) from within the crown part of the tooth (the visible portion of the tooth above the gum) leaving intact the healthy nerve in the roots of the tooth.
