The inner part of the tooth structure is called the pulp. In some cases, when the pulp of the tooth has become infected, this inner substance must be removed and replaced so that the tooth can remain healthy.
This may be performed on toddlers whose baby teeth (typically molars) have been damaged. In this procedure, the infected part of the pulp is removed and then the remaining pulp is covered with a dental therapeutic dressing to keep it healthy.
