Any time you have a tooth extracted you need to consider what it will do to the rest of your mouth. In the case of having a tooth pulled in the very back of your mouth, it's not usually a huge problem. However, when you start talking the other 24 teeth in your mouth there is. Any time a tooth is pulled you have to expect that eventually it's "dancing partener" (the tooth directly above or below it that it occludes with while biting) will gradually make it's way out also and fall out. The teeth on either side of an area that has had an extraction will gradually tip into that space and cause not only biting issues, but esthetic ones. Eventually it will become difficult to chew food as effectively as you are used to. I would highly recommend having a root canal done and saving the tooth at all costs (we're talking teeth that are not the furthest molars in your mouth). If you cannot afford a root canal (they range from probably $300-$1000 and insurance usually pays for them around 80%) you can always check to see if you qualify with your local Free Clinic.

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..lolFill 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.

Is baby tooth root canal effects the coming of permanent tooth?


The dentist said you have an absessed tooth does it have to be pulled or can it heal?

Abscessed teeth cannot heal on their own. It means that the tooth is dying. The root has to be removed or it could end up infecting your other teeth. Normally, a root canal would be done in this case as opposed to pulling it. If the tooth is in really bad shape, the tooth may have to be pulled.

Is there any harmful effects when the baby tooth does not drop off?

The job of baby teeth is to reserve the place for the permanent teeth to come in. When the baby tooth does not drop off, but the permanent tooth is coming out on schedule, it could divert the permanent tooth in a different direction. If a baby tooth has not come out and the permanent tooth has yet to arrive, it could mean the permanent tooth has not developed or growth is delayed. Consult with a general or pediatric dentist to determine the situation and what course of action needs to be taken.
