The pattern and degree of primary tooth
resorption and stage of root developmental of the permanent teeth was evaluated using Haavikko's five resorption stages [Haavikko, 1973].
Long-term outcomes of primary tooth
pulpectomy with and without smear layer removal: a randomized split-mouth clinical trial.
For each extracted primary tooth
, the reason for the extraction, the type of tooth extracted, and the patient's age and gender were recorded using Excel software (Excel, Office 365, Microsoft, Redmond, WA, USA).

trauma," Dental Traumatology, vol.
DISCUSSION: King et al (7) conducted a survey on the concentration of Formocresol used by pediatric dentists in Texas for primary tooth
pulpotomy, according to which majority of pediatric dentists are not only still using Formocresol for primary tooth
pulpotomy, but they are also using full strength Formocresol, either knowingly or unknowingly which indicates that there is as much confusion among practitioners about Formocresol as there is variation in their technique.
Example of the restoration of a proximal and cervical lesion on a primary tooth
with a RMGIC: Fuji II A LC (GC).
* % dft >0 is the proportion of children with one or more decayed or filled primary tooth
; % dt >0 is the proportion of children with one or more decayed primary tooth
; % DMFT >0 is the proportion of children with one or more decayed, missing or filled permanent tooth; and % DT >0 is the proportion of children with one or more decayed permanent tooth.
Chelicera: fixed finger with a small basal rise and a rounded tip, ventral edge straight (although two specimens had a slight ventral concavity) with no apparent hooklike terminus; the mesal ventral groove a small, shallow apical cup; movable finger with large primary tooth
, smaller anterior tooth, 1-2 intermediate teeth, the posterior being separated from primary tooth
Its research showed 41 per cent of five-year-olds suffer from tooth decay and one in eight has at least one filled primary tooth
and 57 per cent of eight-year-olds have dental decay in their primary teeth.
* A dark (blackish-bluish) front primary tooth
may indicate a change in the vitality of its nerve, usually due to a past history of trauma to the tooth.
When a primary tooth
is lost before a permanent one is ready to appear, the adjoining teeth may tilt toward the space.
