Milk teeth have the same structure as permanent teeth. There is a nerve inside the pulp. Dairy products have a more fragile and delicate enamel, so caries in children are much more common. The progression of the disease leads to the destruction of the tooth. Children have 20 teeth on one jaw and they grow up to 4-5 years old. It happens differently for each child.
Filling the roots of baby teeth for many may seem useless, because such teeth still fall out. This opinion is erroneous, because at any age teeth need proper care and treatment. Premature removal of baby teeth can have negative consequences. Adjacent teeth may be located in an empty place. This may lead to occlusion in the future.
Waiting for a tooth with a carious lesion to fall out is a big mistake. Subsequently, neighboring teeth will also suffer from caries. In addition, bacteria can remain on the gum and affect the rudiments of permanent teeth. Filling of temporary teeth should be carried out on time, as well as permanent ones.
