All milk teeth, from the anterior teeth to the posterior teeth, have roots. The reason why most people think that milk teeth do not have roots is that they do not see the root of milk teeth when they fall out. Because the root of the milk tooth is degraded when the tooth is loose and falls out. In fact, what parents see when a baby tooth falls out is the crown of the tooth? In the following, we will talk more about the roots of milk teeth…
The growth of permanent tooth buds is the cause of the decay of the root of the baby tooth. The position of placement and growth of permanent teeth buds is under the roots of milk teeth. At some point, these permanent teeth begin to erupt and grow, the root of the milk tooth is destroyed and their crown remains in the gum, in which case the milk tooth becomes loose.
In some situations, the interval between loosening and falling out of a milk tooth is very short, and it is such that the child does not feel uncomfortable about the loosening and then falling out of his milk tooth.
But in some situations, the interval between the loosening and falling of the milk tooth is very long and causes discomfort and pain in the gums and sometimes the gums bleed in the child. In this situation, with the diagnosis of a pediatric dentist and examination of the root photo of the baby tooth, the desired treatment is performed or the baby tooth is extracted.
In some situations, it is necessary to remove the milk tooth from the mouth earlier. When a tooth has been hit or a baby tooth root infection has occurred, it is necessary to pull out the baby tooth before it becomes loose. At this time, the pediatric dentist examines the tooth’s anatomy by examining the radiograph of the tooth and carefully extracts the baby tooth without damaging the permanent tooth.
In some situations, the question may arise as to what will happen if the root of the baby tooth remains in the gum. In some situations, the root of the baby tooth may break and remain in the gum when removing the tooth, do not worry, in this situation, if access is possible If there is a root of the tooth, the root will be removed. However, if the tooth breaks during extraction near the end of the root, there should be no insistence on removing it. Because the bud of the permanent tooth is right after the root of the baby tooth and it may be damaged.
If you are worried about the complications of leaving the root of the tooth in the gum, it should be said that the root of the baby tooth remains in the gum and it will come to the surface of the gum with the growth of the permanent tooth. In this situation, the pediatric dentist will remove the root of the baby tooth without damaging the permanent tooth.
