Dental Treatment for Over Retained Deciduous Tooth

Hopelessly retained deciduous teeth without permanent successors, pose a restorative challenge for dentists and patients alike. Compromised dental esthetics, shifting of adjacent teeth, altered occlusion and super eruption of teeth are some of the dental problems faced.

In these patients, the milk tooth never exfoliates, causing discrepancies in shape & form of teeth. This can be easily corrected using tooth colored (composite) material in a single sitting.

Dental treatment planning for replacement of a hopeless retained deciduous tooth involves a periodontal evaluation, the status of the adjacent teeth, radiographic evaluation (sometimes including a CT scan), diagnostic study models, medical history, evaluation of prosthetic options, orthodontic evaluation, and assessment of the type of provisional restoration that will be required. All this is expertly handled by the dentists at Smiles Forever dental clinic.
