Kids are super happy and naive creatures and they learn what you teach them. Once taught, they remember it for life. Right from when they learn to say “ma”, there comes the time when they have grown big enough that we need to take care of their oral health. But more kids, more than the treatment, the emphasis on cultivating good habits and taking preventive measures to ensure a healthy mouth. The Dental Roots is a well known centre for kids dentistry in Gurgaon. Here are experts update you about you keep your child away from mouth monsters.
Talking about prevention, brushing is the first thing that comes to our mind.
The cleaning of teeth or gums should start right from the kid is born. Gum Pads of your little kid should clean using damp cotton. Just swap them gently to clean any remnants of milk or food particle.
Once the teeth start to show up in the mouth, a soft-bristled thumb brush can be used to clean the plaque.
Toothpaste is only to assist brushing. Till the age of 2-3 years, one should use only a rice grain amount of toothpaste. And once they cross the age of 5, the amount of toothpaste can be increased to pea size.
Kids special toothpaste is readily available. One parent should also accompany the child while he/she is brushing. He/she should be taught brushing in a fun away. One should always tell the child not to swallow the froth.
The dietary composition also plays a key role in the oral health of every individual. And for kids, it becomes all the way more important to keep a check on the sugar intake. Frequent intake of candies, chocolates, and junk can put your kid to high risk for caries.
Sleeping with a milk bottle is a complete NO-NO. About 60% of kids get milk bottle caries due to this. It is a known fact that this makes your kids’ teeth very vulnerable to cavities.
One should always encourage kids to fruits and crunchy salads which acts as a natural cleaner for the teeth. Candies and sticky chocolates can harm the enamel. So cultivate a habit of rinses mouth after they take something sweet and sticky.
Kids are naive but we should understand the importance of having a cavity free mouth. Our first permanent tooth erupts at a young age of 6. Our kid's dentist in Gurgaon prevents our teeth from getting any decay using sealants. Sealant is a thin layer of filling material which when put on the teeth’s chewing surface, helps keep cavities at bay. Also, regular fluoride applications can assist a cavity free mouth.
