Children's dentistry

Often parents ask if it is necessary to treat milk teeth?

And does milk teeth have a nerve and a root?

The answer is, "Yes!"

Milk teeth also have nerves and roots, and their health is important for the development of permanent teeth. Therefore, they should also be treated. An untreated milk tooth may be the cause of pus, which in turn affects permanent tooth. Milk teeth keep a place for permanent tooth row. So it's important to take care of your baby's teeth from the first tooth.

First, it is the right diet. For infants it is breast milk.

Secondly, good hygiene.

Parents play an important role in the care of the baby's milk teeth, so I want to give you some tips to help keep their teeth healthy. Do not give the infant a bottle of sweetened drinks overnight. After eating, clean the first teeth with a gauze swab. When a child has learned to hold a toothbrush, teach them how to care for their teeth and explain that toothpaste should not be swallowed. Parents should make sure that the child does not suck the finger, as this will lead to the formation of an incorrect bite. It is important not to eat between meals and especially at bedtime.

When a child grows up, try to avoid products that stick to the teeth, such as chips, candies, biscuits. It is important for parents to explain to their child about dental health and to bring them to the dentist in time so that the child has positive emotions after the dentist's visit. When the tooth is painful, the child is already scared, and if the parents mention the unpleasant memories about going to dentist as a child, then it is more difficult for the dentist to comunicate with the child.
