Nowadays, children, as well as an adult individual, pay attention to aesthetics and external appearance. The problems faced by a child who does not have front teeth or has caries in the school environment or social life are actually not much different from us adults. In fact, it makes this situation even more important that the personal self-confidence of the children who experience their emotions much more intensely than adults also begins to form during this period. Turkey Medicals member hospital children’s department Turkish Dentist gave information about milk teeth.

Damage to the milk teeth leaves us with bigger mouth, tooth and jaw problems in the future. The resulting caries means that the number of microorganisms in the mouth of our child is too large, which also threatens other healthy teeth.

In addition, with the loss of a milk tooth with advanced infection, the displacement of the adjacent teeth into this space causes the narrowing of the place necessary for a permanent tooth and the child needs longer-term and more costly orthodontic treatment in the future. In addition, both the nutrition and speech of a child who has lost teeth compared to his peers are negatively affected by this condition. However, at a time when technology and materials used in dentistry are at such an advanced level, we can prevent all this by protecting our baby teeth.

The most common form of trauma in children during the period of milk dentition is the complete displacement of the teeth or the embedding of the tooth in the jawbone. Milk teeth that have been displaced due to trauma are not placed back in place.

Even if the permanent tooth germ is not damaged due to the trauma, the milk tooth may be damaged when trying to insert it back. For this reason, milk teeth that have been displaced due to trauma should definitely not be tried to be replaced again. Sometimes, as a result of trauma, the tooth may be embedded in the bone and the tooth may not appear in the mouth.

Parents may think that the tooth has fallen out, but they have not found the tooth. In such a situation, the tooth is detected by radiography and muscle intervals are followed, no intervention is made on the tooth. After a while, it seems that the tooth buried in the jawbone is driven back into the mouth. In cases where the tooth does not last for a long time, a shot can be resorted to to eliminate the risk of burying the tooth. Because the milk tooth remains buried, it may cause the tooth to not be able to drive continuously in the future.
