Extraction of teeth for children

Extraction of teeth for children
Extraction of milk teeth is an extreme measure, which is used when other methods of treatment do not bring the desired effect. This is a procedure that has some differences from similar manipulations in adult patients due to the structural features of the child’s dentition.

Extraction of milk teeth in children: main indications

Milk teeth begin to fall out at 5-6 years old, gradually giving way to permanent ones. And although tooth extraction is a rather unpopular measure, in some cases it cannot be avoided.

The indications for this may be:

  • Significant damage beyond repair.
  • Pathological root resorption more than 1/2 of the length.
  • Resorption in the furcation zone, intracanal resorption.
  • Vertical root thinning.
  • Resorption of the cortical plate of the permanent tooth follicle.
  • Physiological resorption 2/3 before tooth change.
  • Periodontitis of a milk tooth in non-contact children during treatment under general anesthesia.

Can I remove a milk tooth myself?

The decision to remove milk teeth should be made only after examining the oral cavity by a dentist, since, in addition to the main function they perform, their presence is one of the conditions for the full growth of bone tissue.

The bone tissue of the dentoalveolar apparatus is formed under mechanical stress. It is the milk teeth that provide the chewing load, which is one of the conditions for the normal development of bone tissue.

To remove a tooth from a child, the doctor uses a smaller forceps for children that do not injure soft tissue. They are loosely fixed so that excessive pressure does not split the tooth and damage the enamel. A new permanent tooth arises under the milk tooth, so all manipulations must be carried out with extreme caution. The procedure itself takes a little time, but it is equally important to monitor the child’s condition in the days following the removal.

What types of anesthesia are used to remove teeth

To remove a baby’s milk tooth without pain, effective and safe methods of anesthesia are used. Removal of the front milk teeth and any healthy milk teeth, the roots of which have already resolved, is performed using application anesthesia – an anesthetic gel is applied to the gum. The most widespread in pediatric dentistry is infiltration anesthesia – the drug is injected into the gums quickly and painlessly using the STA apparatus (the computer controls the dosage, injection accuracy, excludes penetration into the nerve endings, damage to the blood vessels).

Removal in drug sleep is carried out when there is a history of severe mental illness, acute inflammatory processes, an allergic reaction to local anesthetics. All drugs used for anesthesia are safe and well tolerated by children.
