The process of a child losing their baby teeth is a natural and typically painless event, but there are exceptions. At Bilski Dental, we believe in educating parents about what to expect during this important stage in their child's dental development. Here's what you should know:
Natural Tooth Loss: Baby teeth, or primary teeth, exfoliate naturally due to the pressure of the permanent teeth emerging behind them. This gradual process usually involves minimal inflammation or discomfort.
Potential Pain Causes: Pain during tooth loss can occur due to various reasons, such as cavities in the baby tooth, misalignment of the permanent teeth, or increased inflammation. In such cases, a visit to the dentist or a pediatric dentist may be necessary for appropriate care.
Pain-free tooth loss is a sign of healthy dental development. When baby teeth fall out naturally, it indicates proper spacing for permanent teeth, ensuring a smoother transition and better oral health in the long run. However, if your child experiences discomfort, it might be an indicator of underlying dental issues that require professional attention.
