Crown amputation and vital pulpotomy can be an excellent treatment choice for the right patient. Determining if this treatment is right for you and your pet is something that we can do following a thorough assessment and discussion of all available treatment options.
Patients who have a crown amputation and vital pulpotomy procedure should avoid play with abrasive toys such as tennis balls. Being mindful of play behaviour and not throwing hard objects to catch is also advised to minimise the chance of damage to the fillings. There is no need to alter diet or chewing behaviours.
