The primary primary dental care and gums of a child is very important, and good oral care practices must begin at a young age, which helps prevent tooth decay and other problems in them.
Dr. Premela Naidu, a specialist in dental care for children, confirms that caring for oral and dental hygiene does not need to wait for the first age to appear, and it is preferable that interest practices begin from birth.
The primary primary age usually begins to appear between the sixth and tenth month, and delayed onset can occur until the end of the twelfth month, and the primary primary teeth play a crucial role in directing permanent teeth to the correct position.
The doctor mentioned some tips for maintaining oral hygiene and keeping your child’s teeth healthy and strong:
Cleaning teeth and gums: children’s teeth need to be cleaned twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed, and a small toothbrush with soft bristles should be used specifically for children.
You can use only water on a toothbrush until the child is 18 months old, after which a small amount of low-fluoride toothpaste can be used.
Avoid tooth decay caused by a feeding bottle: the cause of primary tooth decay is often the result of prolonged exposure to sugar from drinks such as juice or artificial milk, or because the effect of milk on the child’s teeth remains for a long time after ingestion.
Therefore, after each feeding, the baby’s gums should be wiped with a clean, damp cloth, and once the child has matured it is recommended to use a cup to help prevent fluid from accumulating and accumulating around the child’s teeth.
Take caution with sweet-tasting medicines: often sweetened medicines cause cavities and cavities in the teeth if they are not constantly cleaned from the effect of the medicine,
Some medicines for children can cause overgrowth of fungi on the tongue or inside the mouth, which can lead to a fungal infection called thrush / candidiasis.
Visit the dentist continuously: The most appropriate time to take your child to the dentist is within 6 months of the appearance of his primary primary teeth.
