Disease eating a tooth
Caries is a disease of the teeth, which, as it develops, softens the dental tissue and eventually destroys it.
Caries begins suddenly and unnoticed. But the development of the disease occurs quickly enough. Treatment of caries, especially in children, you need to start immediately to save healthy teeth. It is important to see the initial caries. First, a hardly noticeable spot appears on the tooth, which eventually becomes black.
Speaking about the treatment of caries in children and in general about this disease, it should be noted that sometimes in babies the first milk teeth erupt already affected by the ailment. A sad picture - and parents are to blame for this.
In children, caries can appear for several reasons. This is primarily due to the fact that mother during pregnancy took inadequate amounts of vitamins, inattentively concerned what she ate. During fetal development there was a violation of the structure of the fetal teeth. Vitamins and trace elements should enter the body of a pregnant woman in a clearly specified volume.
If the teeth cut through the child's good, and after a time there was tooth decay, then the reasons should be sought in another. And in this case there can be plenty of them. This and the wrong care for the teeth, and a lack of vitamins, and infection with bacteria, and poor immunity. Also, reasons for early caries include artificial feeding.
Speaking about the treatment of caries in children, we should emphasize that the bacteria that cause the disease in the mouth can not be destroyed forever. And this does not affect the cost of caries treatment. If caries has appeared and teeth are amazed, the person will not get rid of it till the end of his days. It can only be healed, suspended. Therefore, the treatment of caries in children and adults should begin immediately after its detection.
Treat or prevent?
Of course, the treatment of caries (especially in children) is a complex and painful process. It is much better to prevent the disease. It is important from infancy to teach the child to the proper care of the oral cavity. After feeding, it is necessary to wipe with a moist gum napkin, and with the appearance of the first tooth for the baby, start brushing it with a rounded brush.
It is necessary to monitor the baby's nutrition. Sweets, soda, chewing gums have a detrimental effect on the structure of the teeth and the condition of the gums. Once again pampering the baby with sweet candy, think about the fact that such a manifestation of love can lead to serious problems with the oral cavity.
And, of course, in order not to start caries treatment in children, it is necessary to regularly visit a children's dentist and from childhood learn a child to properly care for your teeth.
