My 2 year just got her 4 front teeth extract (using GA) due to decay, would like to hear from parents who have experienced this.  She talks and eats fine, I just feel bad that her 4 front teeth are gone.

 

Did your toddler's teeth grow back OK and were there any changes to eating/speech because of the missing teeth?  thanks!

Just want to say that if she JUST had them out...be gentle with her.  I just had some dental work done today, and I'm hurting quite a bit.  Give her time.

 

Other than that, I don't have anything to offer.  Sorry for your babe.

soymilk : 

 

Did they leave the roots or put in spacers? 

 

Hang in there. We've got a little one your daughter's age with decay, I know it's rough.

DD1 lost her two front teeth at age 3 due to an accident. Her speech did change, she still has minor speech issues that we are correcting at age 9. So many years without those teeth where hard to correct when they did finally come in. She will need braces eventually, those teeth came in crooked. One thing that I did not think of was when her adult teeth grew in, her gums were so hardened that it was quite painful for her. Almost like teething baby again.

They did not put in spacers or pedo-partials, as her second molars are not completely in.

 

Peony- thanks for the info. Is there anything that can be done to make sure the gums don't harden?

Wow, four teeth....poor baby...did the dentist suggest any sort of medical follow up with the pediatician? (our neighbor's kid had 8 cavities at age 4 and the pediatician started checking her for diabetes and a bunch of other things I can't remember)....OHH, for the pain, try gently rubbing in Arnica Cream on her face (outside lip area...but not so baby will ingest it.......) that may help with any pain.

The dentist did'nt suggest follwup with the ped.  We saw the ped at 15 months and he was the one that suggested we see a dentist as her teeth had soft enamel.  thanks.

My nine year old had his four front teeth extracted due to decay, and his permanent teeth came in ok, but he had to wear an appliance when they were coming in to prevent a bad bite. He also has had a lot of other dental work, so I would prepare for more dental work, and read up on healing tooth decay naturally as well.
