In case of severe tooth decay or trauma, the entire tooth pulp, including the root canals can be affected which will need the dentist to remove the pulp, cleanse the root canals, and then pack the area with biocompatible material this is known as pulpectomy.
The basic difference between pulpotomy and pulpectomy is that the former is done by just removing infected pulp in the crown and the latter is done by removing the infected pulp from the crown as well as the root. The goal of these treatments is to keep the tooth healthy and prevent root resorption till it’s time for the baby tooth to naturally fall out.
