Many parents do not really pay attention to the condition of the milk teeth of the baby. Like, what to treat them, still going to change. In fact, 6 – 7 years is a very important age from the point of view of dentistry. Of the permanent teeth erupt not just the front incisors, but the molars, that is the farthest molars. They are preceded by a loss of milk – they appear for them in the rear parts of the jaw, as they say, from scratch. But these first permanent teeth very quickly can become easy prey to caries….
Years to 25 – 30 instead of enamel – a solid seal! So milk teeth require the same care, as the constant. And it’s better if the type of paste and brush will pick a children’s dentist. Also save the first permanent teeth will help such a simple procedure as the sealing of the molars (sealing with special materials of dimples on the chewing surfaces of the fissure).
Baby teeth, like teeth, have roots and the pulp is also affected by caries, which must be treated! After all, if bacteria settled in the primary teeth, the inflammation will amaze and almost “hatched” constant. But we should not encourage the early removal of milk teeth, it may cause improper eruption of permanent, up to deformations of the jawbone. As dentists say, “violated the conditions for the formation of a beautiful smile”.
Dangerous fast food, and training stress
Going to the first grade, the child gets some “financial freedom” in the form of pocket money. And they spent known to fast food. By the way, if the child is constantly chewing at school, he may just be a stress eater (school psychologists have a concept – “September neurosis”).
Ideally, it would be better to wean to catch something on the way to and from school. Breakfast at home, then a second Breakfast at school and lunch at home again. But in real life without snacking unlikely to do. The most dangerous for teeth – rich in carbohydrates, tasty food for microbes.
Because the most common cause of caries are:
- pseudosolenia chocolate and candy bars, sweet baked goods, ice cream;
- sugary drinks (even those in which no sugar, and its substitutes, for children they are not very useful). This includes sugary juices, and coffee drinks with milk and sugar;
- instant soups and noodles with flavor enhancers.
So teach your child to good for teeth snack instead of a candy bar, put it in a backpack peeled carrot or Apple. And most importantly, to create in the child the personal motivation that if he will take care of your teeth now, will grow a beautiful and successful.
How much can you chew gum?
Preschoolers – free use does not give! Students to chew gum after a meal is normal and even correct. The child is better to buy gum with natural xylitol and not sugar or other sweeteners. But one plate can be chewed for longer than 15 minutes. Even serious research on this subject was conducted, including the Central research Institute of dentistry, which showed that longer chewing can even lead to dysfunction of the tissues of the gums and periodontium.
If “use” gum for hours, disturbed circulation and nutrition of tissues of the oral cavity. In terms of hygiene, of course, long lasting gum itself becomes a breeding ground for bacteria. Because wean the child from it to inflate bubbles and fumble. 15 minutes chewed up, spit out (in the trash!), and all before the next meal. You can measure the time at the end of taste sensations. Not sweet – gum is no longer useful.
7 vegetables that quickly ruin your teeth
Dentists have proven that the risk of tooth decay increases even a very good products! Experts from the European dental Association named several vegetables that contribute to the development of caries and gum irritation. The negative effect of their enzymes and acids (e.g. oxalic, malic and succinic) on tooth enamel does not depend on in what form will these vegetables roasted, baked or boiled.
- bell pepper;
Scientists did not detract from the usefulness of these vegetables (vitamin C, folic acid, vitamin a, pectin, cellulose, magnesium, potassium and many other much-needed matter). But I advise tasting, for example, saute with eggplant or the fillet with pepper, sure to thoroughly rinse your mouth, and it’s better to brush your teeth.
