Milk Teeth–Nerve Therapy – Inflammation of the Tooth-Nerve due to Caries Bacteria
The milk tooth nerve is relatively big compared to that of the permanent tooth; Bacteria can very quickly cause inflammation of the nerve-tissue (pulpa).
At worst, inflammation can spread and invade the surrounding bone-tissue. This can lead to an abscess (“swollen cheek”). It is not usually possible to save these teeth, as they endanger the permanent teeth below as well, and they may have to be extracted.
