What is vital pulp therapy?

Modern techniques and advances in dental materials have opened the door to allow clinicians to maintain the vitality of the pulp tissue and potentially avoid conventional root canal treatment in certain cases. This treatment can often be used in cases of trauma where the pulp becomes exposed but is not damaged or inflamed. Dr. Pakozdi utilizes a special material to cover and protect the pulp tissue, which can keep the tooth alive for the foreseeable future. This option is especially beneficial in young patients whose teeth and roots are not fully developed. 

The doctor would be happy to review this process in detail with you should the treatment be recommended and indicated.
