Most of us have a notion that the milky teeth do not play a role in the permanent dentition. In contrast, the primary/ milky teeth decide the fate of the permanent teeth. Therefore, in case of trauma to the milky teeth, concrete steps are to be taken to treat it. Trauma could be due to accidental or any other reasons.
If an uncomplicated crown fracture occurs, a filling would suffice. But, if it involves the nerve of the tooth, pulpotomy/pulpectomy, wherein the root canal of the tooth is treated, has to be performed. If not taken care of, the infection might spread to the permanent successor. In case of intrusion of the primary(milky) tooth due to an injury/trauma, it has to be extruded in order to prevent damage to the developing permanent tooth bud. If the root is fractured, extraction is indicated in order to avoid the spread of infection to the permanent successor. Followed by the extraction, and depending upon the age of the patient, space has to be maintained with the space maintaining appliances. When a tooth is avulsed, which is complete displacement from the socket, it has to kept in storage media like milk, coconut water or egg white and immediately visit the dentist, who would carry out replantation of the avulsed tooth, if possible.
