Primary teeth or baby teeth are the joy and pain of each parent. Baby’s teeth eruption is individual. A general rule is that baby teeth begin to erupt at about 5-6 months and continue until 3 when children have 20 baby teeth altogether.
Baby teeth eruption can be painful for babies. There are various gels that make it easier and Dentokind tablets that reduce the inflammatory reaction of gums during teething.
When should a child start using a toothbrush and oral hygiene?
For incisors it is enough to use gauze to clean baby teeth, and when they turn two it is recommended to use toothbrushes and baby toothpaste with fluoride with a slight amount of toothpaste on a brush.
Why is it important to treat baby teeth?
Milk teeth or baby teeth are treated for a number of reasons. One of the most important is that under each baby tooth there is a tooth bud, the beginning of a permanent tooth. Baby teeth keep a place of permanent teeth. Untreated teeth are often the cause of various infections accompanied by pain and swelling. Cavities in baby teeth bring about problems with food digestion for small children. Other young children can be very cruel to the children who have cavities in all front teeth. Children with a nice smile are, therefore, much more confident and satisfied.
Cavity occurs very early. It is very often due to bad habits, inadequate nutrition, and frequently because of the lack of awareness of parents themselves about the importance of baby teeth.
The period for the first dental check-up for young children is from the emergence of baby teeth up to the third year, because then the correct technique of brushing your teeth is learned, awareness of oral hygiene is raised and the fear of the dental chair is reduced.
What is fissure sealants?
One of the most effective methods for the treatment of baby teeth is fissure sealants. This is an excellent method of preventing tooth decay and the formation of cavities, especially on fourth and fifth baby teeth. Fissures are grooves in teeth where food particles and bacterial plaque are retained. By placing plastic coatings in fissures a barrier is created for harmful external factors. It is a completely painless procedure and lasts for five minutes.
Fissure sealants are very important to be done on baby teeth and on permanent teeth. When the first permanent sixths erupt children are about six years old, it is very important to apply fissure sealants as soon as possible to minimize the possibility of creating cavities. The last baby tooth is replaced by a permanent tooth at 11-12, so it is necessary to keep them healthy. It is very important to emphasize that once fissure sealants are applied the tooth is not resistant to cavities forever and should be controlled once every three months, then after six months.
