Once detected, the enamel pearl needs to be removed so plaque buildup can be removed, and the periodontal pockets can be healed. Your dentist can remove it with dental burs and files. After treatment is completed, the enamel pearl will not reappear.
Enamel pearls cannot be prevented since they begin as rare anomalies at the cellular level. But they can be treated quickly. Visit your dental professional for regular checkups, X-rays, and cleanings so they can detect enamel pearls as soon as possible. If you notice chronic inflammation, bleeding, or discomfort despite good oral hygiene habits, contact your dentist's office right away. Proper evaluation and treatment by your dentist and dental hygienist can prevent this tooth anomaly from affecting your smile.
