TOOTH DECAY in infants and toddlers is often referred to as Baby bobble tooth decay,or early childhood caries.children need strong ,healthy teeth to chew food,speakband have a good looking smile.
You can prevent your baby from getting cavities or developing caries by beginning oral hygiene routine within the first few days after birth.Clean or wipe your babys mouth or gums with a clean gauzepad,as it helps remove plaque that can harm the erupting teeth.It is important to start infants off with good oral care and hygiene to help protect their teeth for long.
Sucking is a natural reflex and infants and young children may suck thumbs,fingers ,pacifiers and other objects.most children stop sucking by the age of four.if your child continues thumb sucking ever after the permanent teeth have come in,it can cause problems with the tooth alignment and bite.THE FREQUENCY,DURATION AND INTENSITY of a habit will help determine if dental problems occur in future.
Space Maintainers help keep the space open for permanent teeth to erupt.your child may need one if he or she loses a baby tooth prematurely,before the permanent tooth starts erupting.If a primary tooth is lost too early,a permanent tooth can erupt into that empty space,instead of where they ought to.
When more adult teeth start coming in to the mouth,there may not be enough space for them.To prevent this from happening a Dentist may recommend a Space Maintainer,to keep open the space left by the missing tooth.
Sealants act as barriers to protect your childs teeth in cavity prone areas.They are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of back teeth and sometimes used to cover deep pits and grooves.There is no discomfort or pain involved in a dental sealant procedure.As long as the sealant remains intact,the tooth surface will be protected from decay.
Malocclusion or badbite is a condition in which ones teeth are crowded ,crooked,out of alignment,or the jaws do not meet properly.This may become particularly noticeable between the ages of 6 and 12 years when a childs permanent teeth start coming in.If crooked or crowded teeth are not treated early a bad bite can make it difficult to keep teeth and gums clean,leading to the risk for cavities and gum disease.
