Abnormal changes in the occlusion and the order of the teeth аs a result of the premature loss of one or a group of teeth

Radosveta Andreeva, Georgi Papanchev


The preservation of the primary teeth to the period of their physiological exfoliation is necessary for forming a normal tooth-jaw system. Unfortunately, despite prevention and modern methods of the pulp pathology treatment, sometimes temporary teeth cannot be saved and their early loss is an objective necessity. The premature loss of the deciduous teeth is a risk factor for the occurrence of an orthodontic deformations. The aim of the literature review is to examine the changes in the order of teeth and occlusion that occur after premature temporary teeth loss. The analysis of this changes show the right holistic approach of treating the children with premature loss of deciduous teeth.
