My 4 years old daughter has been complaining of toothache (front). Recently I noticed a white lump (hard) on the gums and referred the dentist. The Dentist told not to worry as its the root of her teeth and need not have to be removed also. I am worried Kindly advice me

  • As your daughter is 4 years old that means she has problem in the milk teeth. If there is lump in relation to the front tooth it can be because of some infection. normally at the age of 4 years the root of the milk tooth is not visible through gums until and unless the front tooth is badly decayed. If the front tooth is badly decayed and root is visible through gums then you should get that tooth pulled out. The tooth bud of the adult tooth is very near to the milk teeth. If the milk tooth is infected and the treatment is not possible then the infection can damaged the tooth bud of the front adult tooth. It is better you take your daughter to a pedodontics (Child specialist) who will give you the proper advise. Without clinical examination and x-rays it is difficult for us to give you a proper treatment plan. For more information on children teeth you can visit the following link on our website.
