Children at the young age are not aware of the importance of protecting oral health. In addition, babies love sweet foods, so the common condition detected at this age is tooth decay and the risk of inflammation of dental pulp. Thus, children need to treat milk teeth pulp or not? Check out the answer immediately.
Is it really necessary to treat milk teeth pulp in children??
If the teeth are at risk of pulpitis, even a baby tooth will also affect dental health. The treatment of milk teeth pulp is necessary to avoid severe inflammation. Avoid affecting the permanent tooth germ below.
Baby teeth play many important roles. Help children chew food in the first stage of life, help orient permanent teeth erect. Or even help your child pronounce clearly.
Please note: after the doctor treat milk teeth pulp, at the right time, the baby teeth will still fall out normally. And the permanent teeth will still grow like other children.
What cases need to treat milk teeth pulp?
- In case of severe tooth decay, the pulp is damaged.
- Cases of inflammation of the pulp chamber but root canals are still healthy.
- In the case of complete tooth infection, chronic pulpitis, or dental pulp necrosis.
How to treat milk teeth pulp in children?
Depending on the case and level of pulpitis, the doctor will treat milk teeth pulp in the most reasonable way:
@ Option 1: cover pulp indirectly and fillings. This method is indicated for cases where cavities are located close to the pulp.
Doctor will apply Calcium Hydroxide on soft ivory. Then continue placing Eugenate for at least 6 weeks. And finally, filling the GIC to finish the process.
@ Option 2: remove the pulp chamber and fill the teeth. This is the case of removing only the inflamed pulp from the pulp chamber, and preserving the pulp in the uninfected root. The doctor uses Formocresol placed at the tip of the root canal, covered with Eugenate. And finally the GIC finish.
@ Option 3: take the dental entire pulp. When the tooth is completely inflamed, chronic, or necrotic, the doctor will proceed to take the entire pulp. Clean the pulp chamber and seal the canal with Reinfored zinc oxide and Eugenol. Finally, the filling is done with GIC.
Treatment of milk teeth pulp in children is not complicated technically but it is difficult psychologically. Because babies are young, they are often afraid of pain and fear of doctors, so they rarely cooperate during treatment.
Therefore, parents need to support children with the most comfortable state of mind. Need to choose a reputable treatment dental center and a doctor who is easy to sympathize with children.
