Pedodontics – Oral and Dental Health in Children
My baby’s teeth are coming out…
Your baby 6. From the month the first milk begins to remove its teeth. Milk teeth are important in the development of babies. They play a role in chewing food, speaking, looking aesthetically beautiful, and removing permanent teeth in the normal position.
What do I need to do for healthy milk teeth?
Regular brushing, healthy eating habits and regular dental checkups are required for a healthy milk tooth sequence.
Brushing should be done 2 times a day with soft and age-appropriate brushes from the time the milk teeth come out. The purpose of brushing is to clean all white enamel surfaces. Brushing should be done after meals with circular movements from the gum to the mouth. Brushing should also be used only for the size of pea grains with fluoride toothpaste appropriate to the child’s age. Before going to bed, you should brush your teeth.
What is bottle rot and how to prevent it?
In infants, especially when falling asleep at night, drinking milk or fruit juice with a bottle for a long time causes widespread decay of the teeth. The main reason for these common cavities is that the teeth are in contact with these fluids for a long time. It is therefore right that only water is given to the baby during the night.
