Actions To Deal With Rocking Teeth?
Hello, I want to ask, do I have baby teeth that have not been pulled out, well, it’s been rocking lately. Is it better to just pull it out or not? For permanent teeth, it’s already growing behind it, later if the milk teeth have been extracted, will the permanent teeth behind it progress? Thanks
Hello. Thank you for the question submitted to HealthReplies.com. We can understand the uncomfortable feeling that you are experiencing.
How old are you? Has the dentist examined beforehand to find out whether the teeth are baby teeth or permanent teeth?
In general, baby teeth will usually shake when it's time to be replaced by permanent teeth. Usually the upper and lower milk teeth will shake and are replaced by permanent teeth at around 6 years of age, but can vary about 1 year earlier or later. Factors that influence it include nutrition and habits of caring for children's oral and dental hygiene.
To evaluate whether or not milk teeth are removed, the dentist will usually recommend dental x-ray examination. This aims to determine whether the tooth shake is because the tooth root has eroded permanent teeth underneath or because of other causes, for example: baby teeth are only the remaining tooth roots left behind. We recommend that you immediately consult a dentist so that evaluation and treatment can be done appropriately. It is recommended not to delay going to the dentist because a tooth that is rocking risks to cause pain, infection, and possibly interfere with the process of masticating food.
