Pediatric dental infections contracted at an Anaheim clinic increased to 22 on Tuesday, as Children’s Dental Group said most of the 500 children who underwent root canals there have been examined for signs of illness.

The Orange County Health Care Agency said among the 22 patients, ages 3 to 9, six remain hospitalized. The children all underwent baby tooth root canals, or pulpotomies, at the East Lincoln Avenue office between April 6 and July 28, the agency said.

On Tuesday, Sam Gruenbaum, CEO of the company that owns the clinic, said the parents of all patients who underwent the procedure since April 1 have been contacted by phone and letter about the outbreak.
