What is the differences between milk teeth and adult teeth Newington, CT

tooth_dentist_newington

There are two dentition phases that occur in a person’s life i.e., primary dentition (milk teeth or deciduous teeth) and secondary dentition (permanent teeth). The permanent teeth are visible throughout a person’s lifetime. Tooth formation happens from the infant stage, and the first sight of baby teeth formation is visible on the 6th or 7th month. The baby teeth continue to grow till a child is about 11 years old, after which the milk teeth fall and give rise to permanent teeth.

Visually it is easy to spot the difference between milk teeth and permanent teeth. However, there are some interesting anatomical differences between the two as well. Let us explore the difference: 

1. Milk teeth (baby teeth) : 

1. Root canals have a more hour-glass-like appearance
2. A larger pulp chamber
3. A high degree of cellularity and vascularity
4. Blood supply is abundant, flowing through the enlarged apical foramens
5. The formation of dentine tubules is less regular
6. Inter globular dentine is absent
7. Enamel and dentine are less mineralized

2. Adult Teeth:

1. Root canals have a well-defined appearance with more branches
2. A smaller pulp chamber
3. A low degree of cellularity and vascularity
4. Blood supply is restricted and reduced
5. The formation of dentine tubules is more regular
6. Inter globular dentine is present
7. Enamel and dentine are more mineralized
