If you have a small cavity in a baby tooth that still has roots on it should you fill the cavity or pull the tooth?

The best thing would be to have a filling put in the tooth. But if the tooth is going to fall out soon, the dentist may recommend pulling it instead. Have it looked at by a dentist and then do what you think is best.

Whatever you do don't pull it out yourself. See a dentist its not that bad, honestly..lol

Fill the ToothPulling a baby tooth too early can cause other teeth to move forward and cause misaligned teeth.

It depends on the age of the child and which tooth it is. If the tooth is about to fall out, then pulling the tooth isn't a bad option. Some "baby teeth" stick around until age 11 or 12 or even 13 sometimes, so if it is a young child, pulling the wrong baby tooth could cause severe misalignment. You really need a dentist's opinion on this matter.

If this is an adult patient with a retained baby tooth, and the adult tooth never came in, well they should probably keep the tooth because there is no "replacement" on the way.

Yes, with the way braces are designed now, anyone can get braces if they need them. They will still work the same and do the job even if you have small roots.

If you were to place a stone close to a tree it would stunt the growth of the roots. Small rocks will just be broken by the roots, but regardless it still has a bad effect on the trees ability to grow.

Yes, this act still exists today. It has grown from its small roots when it was first approved by F.D.R. to a company which provides local citizens with an extensive structure of electricity.

When you cut the tree down the roots will live on and continue to support your slope. Slowly another tree will start to grow. However, if you kill the roots they will eventually rot out and your slope will lose it's support.

Well, you will start to see your natural hair colour at the top of your head, it will only be a small line, these will be your roots, some people like to leave their roots so they can get a nice faded hair colour, but if you still want your solid colour I suggest going for a touch up. Hope this helped:)

Strangling roots: the special name for roots of strangling figs (Ficus), which are primary hemiepiphytes that begin life as tropical epiphytes in trees and send down adventitious roots that become rooted in the soil. The roots surround the host trunk, eventually strangling the bark and killing the host tree.Still roots: Still roots are adventitious support roots (mangroves). They grown from lateral branches, branching in the soil surfaceetc,.

My hairdresser told me that when you've finished rinsing the shampoo out of your hair in the shower, you should rinse it again with cold water. Hot water stimulates the roots of your hair to produce the oil, so if you use cold water last, it should improve your hair's condition.

Yes, the retainer will still fit properly. The filling fills a hole on the inside of the tooth, and the retainer covers the outside of the teeth so the cavity is not affected.

Yes, the roots are always growing...however, if you cut off the roots of a tree, the branches will not grow.

No they are not still a plant. When they are picked they don't have their vitamins, food or their roots.

Foam is a good insulator- this means that it traps still air and prevents heat travelling and being lost. Heat is lost more easily through the air in air-filled cavity walls as the air is not kept still.

no you can still get a cavity underneath the filling if you dont take care of them.

When you have a dental crown, it is less common to have a cavity on the tooth because it is protected. However, the place where the crown meets the tooth can still get a cavity, that is why hygiene is important even though a crown is on the tooth, especially flossing. The two ways to get a cavity under a crown are:A cavity started between the crown and the tooth at the gum level.There was a cavity left on the tooth when the crown was put (more rare).

well yes they will because if only the flower was chewed off then the roots should still be fine, meaning it will regrow!!! your welcome love tarni xx

It means that might have a small hole in your tooth with the filling ( which might not be visible.) you will have to go to the dentist again to see if the cavity has continued to grow in your gum or tooth.

Water should move out of the roots, but if there is very, very little salt, water can still move into the roots. The real question is what the relative concentrations of solutes in the root and in the water are. Water will move from low concentration to high concentration areas, regardless if it's salt, sugar, or other dissolved solids.

pull it out by the roots. even like that it can still live, so cut up the roots and sements into multiple pieces

If tree roots are in your septic system, you really need to seek professional help. Rock salt will kill tree roots but they will still need to be removed.

Even if you cut it down, the roots will still grow back. You'll have to excavate ALL of the roots and the tree itself to get rid of it.
