INTRODUCTION: Early deciduous tooth extraction is a common public health problem that causes long-term economic and time-related loss. Early deciduous tooth extraction is common due to lack of a pedodontists in the dentistry faculty and parental awareness. For this reason, this retrospective study was planned to determine the number of early extractions of all the deciduous teeth in the last year and to raise awareness for child patients in terms of surgery.
METHODS: Between January 2017 and December 2017, data-processing documents of child patients between the ages of 4-12 whose deciduous teeth were extracted were examined. A classification was made based on age group, lower-upper jaw, gender, early extraction times, and the physiological eruption times of the deciduous teeth The used anesthesia techniques and individual number of extractions were evaluated.
RESULTS: It was identified that approximately half of all extractions were early, and it was observed in early extractions that the incisor and canine teeth extraction in girls and the 1st deciduous molar teeth extraction in boys exhibited statistically significant differences.
DISCUSSION AND CONCLUSION: The examinations of pediatric specialists and treatment protocols in child patients, access to pedodontists easier, and raising parental awareness can seriously impact the prevalence of early extractions in oral and maxillofacial surgery clinics. A single extraction in a single session would be more comfortable for both the child and the physician.
