This question is common and the answer is one: “Yes! Baby teeth have roots and nerve! ” Baby teeth, like permanent ones, are living tissues, containing several layers of tissue - enamel, dentin, cementum and dental pulp which is a soft tissue that has nerves and blood vessels.

STRUCTURE OF THE MILK TEETH

  • In children, the anatomical structure of a baby tooth is similar to that of a permanent adult tooth
  • The tooth has a crown, root and dental pulp.
  • Baby teeth are less resistant than permanent teeth and can be attacked much more quickly by cavities.
  • In a baby tooth, caries develops extremely quickly and can easily reach the nerve.
  • If left untreated, cavities cause pain, inflammation in the gums and bones that support the teeth.
  • Untreated caries eventually leads to premature tooth extraction.

HOW DO YOU KNOW IF YOUR CHILD'S TEETH ARE HEALTHY?

Caries are not always visible. They can be hidden and detected with the help of dental equipment. Therefore, it is advisable to schedule a dental check-up in advance. This is the only way you can make sure that your child's roots, nerves and teeth are and will be healthy.
