The baby's teeth tend to be precisely the same disease as the permanent teeth of an adult, the only difference is that the development of infections and diseases takes place much faster in milk teeth. Pulpitis of milk teeth - the most common disease in young children.

Treatment of pulpitis
Pulpitis of milk teeth and its treatment become a problem not only parents, but also the dentist. Young children can not express their feelings, the nature of the pain, which complicates the diagnosis. The main task in the treatment of pulpitis as a disease of milk teeth is to save the life of the pulp itself for the subsequent proper formation of roots and the development of indigenous teeth. The method of treatment is divided into biological and surgical.

In the course of treatment, applied therapeutic paste, which removes the inflammatory process and eliminate the infection. However, the use of this method is impossible, if the carious lesions of the tooth are very large. In this case, doctors resort to surgical treatment of pulpitis of non-permanent teeth in a child.
Surgical method of treatment
The task of the surgical method is necrosis of the pulp with its high preservation. The treatment takes place in two, at most three sessions. At the first visit, the dentist opens the inflamed tooth, cleansing the pulp from the carious lesions, then inserts a paste containing substances that also necrotizing it. In the second stage, as a rule, after 24 - 48 hours, the pulp is removed and, if the root system allows, seal the tooth. It happens that the inflammation of the pulp of milk teeth is in a very sharp form and then, after removal of the pulp, apply anti-inflammatory pastes, which are used in the biological method. The sealing is carried out only in two days.
