Milk Tooth Extraction

Explainer Video

Milk tooth extraction, commonly referred to as the removal of baby teeth, is a procedure sometimes necessary when a child’s primary teeth do not fall out naturally to make way for permanent teeth. This can be due to various reasons such as decay, overcrowding, or the teeth being retained longer than usual, potentially leading to dental complications. While the loss of milk teeth is a natural process, intervention is required when they impede the proper growth and alignment of permanent teeth. The procedure is carefully performed to ensure the child’s comfort and to preserve the health of the emerging adult teeth.

Frequently asked questions
and their answers

Milk teeth, also known as primary or baby teeth, may need to be extracted for various reasons, including severe tooth decay, infection, crowding, or issues with eruption that may affect the development of permanent teeth.

The extraction process for milk teeth is typically not very painful, as dentists use local anesthesia to numb the area. Children may feel some pressure during the procedure, but they should not experience significant pain.

To prepare a child for milk tooth extraction, it is essential to explain the procedure in a positive and age-appropriate manner. Reassure them that the dentist will ensure they don’t feel pain during the extraction and answer any questions they may have.

After a milk tooth extraction, some bleeding is normal, and the dentist will provide gauze to control it. Your child may experience mild discomfort, swelling, or bruising, which can be managed with cold compresses and over-the-counter pain medication.

After a milk tooth extraction, it’s important to follow the dentist’s post-care instructions. This may include avoiding certain foods and drinks, ensuring gentle oral hygiene practices, and monitoring for any signs of infection or complications.

Depending on the location and timing of the extracted milk tooth, your child may or may not need a space maintainer. A space maintainer is a dental device that helps preserve the space for the permanent tooth to erupt properly.
