Dental treatment for children

Neither small infants nor children are immune to oral health issues. What your kids eat affect their health very much. Sugar in foods such as sweets, milk, juices, as well as carbohydrates can cause the appearance of cavities. It is difficult to correctly brush children’s teeth, which can cause bacteria to form, and, thus, cavities to start forming.

In such cases, prevention has an essential role. Oral hygiene is strongly linked to the child’s oral health. Oral hygiene has a major influence in the cavities forming. When teeth are no longer cleaned properly and regularly, acids remain on teeth for a long duration, causing the weakening of enamel, making it more succeptible to cavities. Proper cleaning and using floss is of high importance in preventing cavities, more so in cases of children.

It’s important that a dental professional examines children’s teeth periodically to check for different diseases. This has the added purpose of training parents and anticipating problems. Temporary teeth start forming since 6 months. Until the age of 3, all the temporary teeth will burst. Between 6 and 12 years of age, children have both temporary and permanent teeth.

Children’s teeth need brushing after every meal. Acids can erode the enamel, which is the protective natural layer of teeth. Fluoridation represents a major component of prevention in cavities. However, fluoride in large quantities can cause a diseases called fluoriditis.
