In their daily lives, family dentist arborg dentists often have to work with children with damaged teeth. Unfortunately, parents who take their children to prophylactic examinations from a very early age are very few.

However, this must be done to create a child's habit of visiting the dentist's office as usual and that there is nothing worrying about it. Most often, children come to dentists when they have a problem that is serious, usually accompanied by pain. These visits are quite difficult for dentists and parents, as well as for children who are already tense and frustrated with the pain and at the same time have to deal with the fear of the unknown.

Quite often the first words of the parents are: "Why should we cure these teeth? They're temporary and will change. Cannot we just get them out or leave them like this? "

The answer is "No".

Although these are temporary teeth and are about to be replaced, they should be treated as permanent ones. Treatment may include obturations when it comes to dental caries or eonadotropic treatment in the case of pulpitis, periodontitis and gangrene.

There are a number of reasons - aesthetic, physiological, and functional, which requires that the teeth be treated.

No matter how charming a child is, we would hardly be sympathetic if it has black and spoiled teeth when it smiles.

Healthy temporary teeth are important for chewing the food and hence for good and complete nutrition. In addition, they are relevant to articulation and it is especially important to be healthy and available at this age when children learn to speak the sounds correctly.

One of the main functions of temporary teeth is to guide the correct breakthrough of permanent teeth. If premature loss of a temporary tooth occurs before a time has elapsed at the constant below it, then the surrounding teeth of the missing one move as they most often come and take up part of the empty space. Typically, this creates a spot shortage for the permanent tooth when it is ready to emerge. In other words, the temporary teeth play the role of locators for replacing permanent teeth.

For example, in the case of premature loss of the fifth temporary tooth (V), the sixth permanent tooth (6) that emerges at 6 years of age tilts to the empty space and thus prevents the normal growth of the fifth permanent tooth (5) at about 10-12 years old.


If a tooth has caries, it is advisable to make obturations to stop the spread of the carious process and to avoid complications such as pulpitis. If this condition is achieved, however, an endodontic treatment of the temporary tooth and then obturation is made. Treatment of baby teeth is also done to avoid unpleasant situations where broken teeth start to hurt and urgent dental visits are required. In addition, non-healing of temporary teeth can lead to abscess or other complications that may interfere with normal development of permanent teeth. (
If, however, for some reason, a temporary tooth has to be removed, the dentist should very well decide whether it is necessary to design and place some type of locator so as not to disturb the normal breakthrough to permanent teeth.
