What are Milk Teeth? When Will They Be Released?
When babies are born, they expect to have 20 milk teeth ready to come out in their jaws. The first deciduous tooth comes out between 6 and 12 months. Since each child’s development is different, there is no need to worry when milk teeth appear in the mouth within average time.
Milk teeth are 20. Just like permanent teeth, milk teeth are also diversified as incisors, canines, milk molars. During the eruption periods of the teeth, especially at the age of 6-18 months, your baby may have itching on the gums. There may be a fever, pain, and your baby may be restless. Painkillers and some gels are recommended by the dentist from time to time in order to overcome this period easily.
The emergence of milk teeth is completed at the age of 3. Your child is now grown up. From this period to 6 years of age, it is very important to take care of the teeth and to gain the habit of regular tooth brushing. It should be checked by the dentist regularly every 6 months and it is also important for the development and relaxation of your child’s relationship with the dentist.
Milk teeth begin to change at the age of 6-8 and leave their places to permanent teeth. Tooth change continues until the age of 12.
Milk teeth begin to sway as a result of the permanent tooth coming from the bottom melting its root and mostly fall off by itself. Sometimes the milk tooth does not shake, does not fall off and the tooth coming from below appears in the mouth from a different place. In this case, the milk tooth should be extracted.
How to Make Milk Teeth Extraction?
The first experiences children have with the dentist are very important. Fear of dentists often stems from a bad childhood experience. During the treatment of children, it would be more appropriate to extract the milk teeth after the child’s getting used to 1-2 sessions. Anesthesia is a must to avoid pain during shooting.
Children are particularly afraid of needles and anesthesia. In our clinics, we can make tooth extractions in children easier by using digital anesthesia. With the abbreviation STA, anesthesia is applied with a small tip like a pen without an injector with the single tooth anesthesia method, and the extraction is easily performed by reducing the anxiety of the child.
