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:
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.
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.
All babies have to deal with the removal of milk teeth. At this age, it is very important to create conditions so that they have only positive associations with dentistry.
