A Quick Guide to Maintaining Your Kids Dental Health

A Quick Guide to Maintaining Your Kids Dental Health

As a parent it is essential that you condition your kids with healthy dental maintenance habits.

Baby teeth play an important role in helping your child bite and chew food, and speak clearly.

ORAL HYGIENE FOR YOUR TODDLER

A toddlers’ dental care regime includes wiping your child’s gums with an infant gum massager, clean damp gauze or a washcloth.

Once your child’s teeth come in, brush them twice a day using a soft bristled toothbrush with water.

Why it’s so important ?

Underneath your child’s baby teeth, the roots and position of the adult teeth are growing into place.Research shows that children who develop cavities in their baby teeth are more likely to develop cavities as an adult, so be sure to get your child to a dentist for a checkup. It is important to keep your child’s baby teeth clean, but once the permanent teeth start to come in you really need to make cleaning them a priority. These teeth will last your child a lifetime.

Brushing

At some point, your child will want to brush his or her own teeth. It’s fine to give him a turn. But afterwards, you should always brush your child’s teeth a second time. Most children won’t be able to brush their teeth well on their own until they are about 6-8 years old. Use fluoride toothpaste only when your child is old enough NOT to swallow it.

Nutrition

While what your child eats is important for healthy teeth, how often a child eats is just as important. Cavities can develop when sugar-containing foods are allowed to stay in the mouth for a long time. Bacteria that live on the teeth feast on these bits of food. They create acid, which eats away at tooth enamel. Between meals or snacks, saliva washes away the acid. If your child is always eating, there may not be time for this acid to get washed away.

1st Dental Visit

New parents often ask, “When should my child first see a dentist?”

Your child should see a dentist by his or her first birthday.

Losing Baby Teeth

On average children begin to lose their baby teeth when they are about 6 or 7 years old. It doesn’t mean something is wrong with your child if they lose their teeth before or after this time.

Most children lose their teeth in the same order they came in.

For example, they lose their bottom center teeth first. When a child is about 6 years old their teeth will begin to come loose. Let your child wiggle the tooth until it falls out on its own. This will minimize the pain and bleeding associated with a lost tooth.

A word of caution -Remember!

Giving your child a bottle of sweetened liquid many times a day, or allowing your child to fall asleep with a bottle during naps, or at night, can be harmful to the child’s teeth.

This may take a while,

initially I have gone through filling of one of my teeth (at the edge of the teeth) but gradually the filled material came out along with some portion of the teeth leaving a hole there. So I consulted some doctors ,but there advice is varying a lot. Some suggested me simple filling will work while other suggested me to go through RCT. So I am in dilemma that whom I should follow. Kindly help me to find which one I should follow.

Mr. lybrate-user, if your tooth decay has reached upto the level of the nerve then you may need root canal treatment with cap. Sometimes if decay is extensive but not reaching the nerve then only a filling with/without cap can be done. A small xray should help in determination of extent of decay and a proper treatment plan.

I want to get the frenulum of my tongue cut so that I can stretch my tongue out more. How much will it cost me and how long does it normally take for it to heal? And what is the procedure? Local anesthesia will be applied?

MDS Prosthodontics, BDS
Dentist, Hyderabad
Hello Mr. Lybrate-user, apologize for the delay. The frenal attachment of tongue can be cut by surgical means using blade and non surgically by use of lasers. Healing is comparatively faster with laser as there is minimal trauma to the tissues. You will be able to get back to your routine in a days time. The procedure is done under local anesthesia only and the cost varies with the extent of attachment. I would recommend a clinical check up if possible, to be able to discuss the procedure and treatment expenditure.

Getting a good night sleep before the root canal treatment is the best way to go as it would reduce anxiety and maintain the overall well being.

Hello Lybrate user there are many options, to treat gaps in between front teeth. The best one is with the braces, the gaps will close easily, without reduction of any tooth structure. The treatment will take 6 to 12 months to complete. Other option is veneer, which is actually thin layer of ceramic placed over your teeth. The disadvantage is a little tooth structure is removed from each tooth. The advantage is you can have bright white teeth for life and it takes 10 to 5 d0ays to complet0e the treatment. Hope this helps.

Posting same Q differently- I'm suffering from bad breath. When I wake up in morning, my mouth stinks so much that I myself can feel bad breath. After brushing, immediately within hour my mouth starts stinking. I brush twice a day, I do scaling twice a year &dentist confirmed that oral hygiene is good. I have a runny nose while having my meals, my tongue gets white throughout day despite of cleaning it daily in morning &while brushing my teeth in morning also I feel that bad breath is coming from my throat. I doubt it's a nasal issue or may be tonsil stones issue. By reading above info, doctors on Lybrate suggested to hv deep cleaning, visit expert dentist, ENT specialist etc. Temporarily,also advised 2use mouthwash. I took few ml of mouthwash n kept in mouth for 10 min n spitted out. Then gargled once wit water to clean foam, also drank water immediately. I found this very effective n felt fresh breath for 10 hours. By this, wat does it indicates? ENT or dental issue? Whom shall I visit?

Usually if you a runny nose in the mrng then there a lot of chances that there is nose block at night. If nose block is there, there will be mouth breathing. This can lead to bad odour. If you say you are also getting coating of tongue, then there can be added gastric complaints (digestive complaints). If you have all these together then it's better to consult a homoeopathy Doctor who can solve the above Problem. For temporary solution you can do mouth wash daily. And also steam inhalation to clear your nose and cough.
