When Baby Teeth Remineralize
Q: When baby teeth remineralize, what happens to the tooth enamel? Do the cavities disappear?
Baby teeth will remineralize when the diet is improved. Remineralized teeth do not usually fill in. They get hard. Decayed baby teeth that remineralize from a good diet can only cover themselves at the place up to where the decay has progressed. So, the tooth may have a hole, but the tooth root and pulp will be protected by the hard dentin, the middle tooth layer. A girl had two teeth worn to the gum line. They are little more than black spots.
Healthy Primary Teeth
The black color and hard texture indicates that tooth decay has ceased. But the crucial point is that the inner layer of the tooth, the root, which can get infected and hurt as a result, is protected. Those teeth, even though worn to the gum line, do not cause any pain. The one time this girl did experience pain, her diet was corrected and the pain was gone within one day.
