My son is very scared of the dentist, but they accommodated him with coloring books and bubbles, and his favorite show. He started being relaxed, so when he saw the dentist, there was no issue. b

Gentle Nerve Treatment to Provide Relief

No More Fears!

The word "nerve treatment" might sound daunting, but rest assured, at Sweetpea Smiles in Sugar Land, TX, we are committed to making every dental experience a pleasant one for your child. Understanding the anxiety both parents and kids might feel, our dedicated team takes extra measures to ensure comfort throughout the procedure.

What Is Nerve Treatment?

When a cavity gets really large and close to the nerve (or pulp), the nerve becomes inflamed. This condition is called pulpitits. Also called a pulpotomy, nerve treatment refers to the procedure we offer to address pulpitis and provide relief from its symptoms. 

Our pediatric dentists will recommend that your child undergo a pulpotomy if our team discovers that your child has extensive decay that has affected the pulp inside the tooth. During nerve treatment, our doctor will remove the inflamed nerve. The area is then sterilized and the chamber is sealed. Our dentists will then repair your child’s tooth with a filling or crown as needed to restore the natural look and function of the affected tooth.

Does My Child Need A Pulpotomy?

If your child is experiencing dental pain, be sure to schedule an appointment right away. Our team will perform an exam to determine the cause of your child’s pain and plan for an appropriate treatment. Your child may need nerve treatment if they’re experiencing:

  • Sensitivity to pressure
  • Sensitivity to temperature
  • Pain or swelling in the mouth or jaw
  • Severe tooth pain

Does Nerve Treatment Hurt?

Your child may be nervous, but nerve treatment is nothing to fear! At Sweetpea Smiles, we are dedicated to provide gentle care to our young patients. We will do everything we can to reduce your child’s discomfort and make them feel calm and safe. For your child’s comfort, we offer the following sedation options for a pain-free dental care experience:

  • Laughing gas
  • Oral sedation
  • IV sedation

Will My Child Need A Filling Or Crown?

Tooth-colored Dental Fillings

Composite resin fillings are bonded to teeth with adhesive. The tooth-colored material is cured with a special light and the surface is polished to match the tooth, making the restoration virtually undetectable to the eye and natural feeling in the mouth.

Traditional Stainless Steel & White Crowns

A crown covers or “caps” a tooth, hence the name “crown.” When a dental filling would not be sufficient to repair a cracked or broken tooth a crown is necessary to restore the tooth. We place both white and stainless steel (silver) crowns in our office.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is pediatric nerve treatment?

Pediatric nerve treatment, often referred to as a pulpotomy, is a procedure performed when the nerve or pulp of a child's tooth becomes inflamed due to deep cavities. This treatment helps relieve pain and preserve the affected tooth.

How can I tell if my child needs a pulpotomy?

If your child complains of severe tooth pain, sensitivity to hot or cold temperatures, pressure on the tooth, or if there's visible swelling in the mouth or jaw, it may indicate the need for nerve treatment. Always consult with a pediatric dentist for an accurate diagnosis.

Is nerve treatment for children painful?

At Sweetpea Smiles in Sugar Land, TX, we prioritize your child's comfort. While the word "nerve treatment" might sound intimidating, modern techniques and sedation options, including laughing gas, oral sedation, and IV sedation, ensure the procedure is as pain-free and comfortable as possible.

How is a pediatric pulpotomy performed?

During a pulpotomy, the inflamed nerve tissue within the tooth's crown is removed, the area is sterilized, and the chamber is sealed. Afterward, the tooth is typically restored with a crown or filling to maintain its structure and function.

Will my child require a filling or crown after the nerve treatment?

Yes, after the pulpotomy, the treated tooth is often restored using a dental filling or crown. This ensures the tooth's strength and functionality. At Sweetpea Smiles, we offer both tooth-colored fillings and traditional stainless steel & white crowns tailored for young smiles.

Are there any post-treatment care tips I should be aware of?

Post-nerve treatment, it's vital to ensure your child avoids eating hard or sticky foods for a few days. Regularly cleaning the area, avoiding very hot or cold beverages, and taking prescribed medications (if any) will ensure a smooth recovery.
