Pull out a baby tooth

As a rule, baby teeth in children fall out themselves in the process of natural change to permanent. However, there are many cases when a child needs the help of a dentist in a clinic. The removal of a baby tooth is an extreme measure that the doctor decides on. All this is due to their important role in the development of the dental system of the child: baby teeth stimulate the growth of the jaws, are the basis for the eruption of permanent units and the formation of a correct bite. Premature loss of deciduous teeth - a factor in favor of the displacement of the remaining teeth, distortion of facial features, facial expressions, the development of dysfunction of the temporomandibular joint. Therefore, the decision to remove temporary teeth is made exclusively by the dentist, based on the clinical picture, according to strict medical indications. In cases where removal is unavoidable, this point should not be postponed. A sore tooth can bring a lot of negative emotions, both to the child and his family.

  • cyst formation in the area of temporary tooth growth;
  • eruption of a rooted tooth when the baby tooth does not even sway;
  • delayed resorption of the roots of deciduous teeth, which interferes with the normal eruption of the crown of a permanent tooth;
  • the presence of chronic fistula in the gums, which is not amenable to therapeutic treatment;
  • excessive tooth mobility.

  • acute infectious diseases;
  • inflammatory processes in the oral cavity;
  • the presence of diseases that affect blood clotting (coagulopathy);
  • chronic diseases in the stage of decompensation;
  • tumor or hematoma near the tooth.

How is the process of removing baby teeth

It all starts with the preparation of the child's mouth, ie antiseptic and anesthetic treatment of tissues. Temporary teeth in most cases are removed quickly and without much difficulty, so the procedure is performed under local anesthesia. In certain cases, general anesthesia may be used. When the painkiller works, the dental surgeon applies and fixes the forceps of the crown of the tooth. He makes gentle movements along the rounded axis to shake the crown. After that, the tooth is dislocated and then removed from the hole. At the end of hemostasis - stop bleeding: the doctor applies a gauze swab to the wound. It should be kept for about 20 minutes, during which time a blood clot forms, which will serve as a protective barrier against the penetration of viruses and bacteria.

Recommendations after removal

  • within 2-3 hours after surgery it is not recommended to eat and drink;
  • use a soft toothbrush during rehabilitation;
