7 new things to know about baby’s small deciduous teeth
Why does my baby not have broken teeth, but his teeth are black and yellow?
What should I do if I accidentally break my teeth?
Decreased deciduous teeth, but better for future tooth replacement?
Faced with various deciduous teeth problems, many mothers feel helpless.
Now, this magazine will invite dental experts to give detailed answers one by one to completely resolve the confusion in your mind.
1 Milk teeth are black and yellow?
Some baby’s deciduous teeth appear as if there is always something black or yellow on the teeth.
According to Dr. Chen Liping, once a similar situation occurs, after excluding the pathological factors of the teeth, it is likely to be caused by poor development of enamel or dentin, and most of them are due to pigmentation caused by tooth staining.
This pigmentation is called “external color precipitation on the tooth surface” in medicine. It is caused by special bacteria in the mouth. Saliva is often metabolized by pigmented beverages (such as coffee, tea, cola, etc.).
To improve the fact that deciduous teeth are black and yellow, they are mostly removed by professional dentists using slow-speed grinders and medical grinding stone powder.
However, after the baby’s deciduous teeth are replaced with permanent teeth, this black and yellow fact may reappear.
Therefore, after the black and yellow brown of the deciduous teeth is improved, thorough cleaning is still needed to prevent plaque from accumulating, and at the same time, take in drinks and foods with high pigment content as much as possible to prevent pigment from re-precipitating.
TIPS: Pregnant mothers take tetracycline antibiotics, and baby’s deciduous teeth are prone to staining. During pregnancy, once pregnant women use tetracycline antibiotics, the chance of permanent staining problems of babies’ deciduous teeth will greatly increase in the future, so extra attention is needed.
2Does sleeping position affect tidyness?
From the clinical statistics, if the baby has been used to sleeping on its own, the shape of the dental arch will become narrower and sharper, which will cause insufficient space for tooth growth. When the teeth are changed in the future, the teeth will be squeezed together to form an irregular dentition.
However, to say that there must be a connection between the sleeping position and the dentition, there is no correct medical research to prove it.
The phenomenon of crowded teeth is also related to the width of the individual’s gums and the size of the teeth, which are mostly determined by genes.
Therefore, there is no need to be too entangled in the sleeping position of the baby because of the distribution of the teeth.
3What should I do if the root of a baby tooth is broken?
For babies who are not learning to walk, it is easy to fall and fall, and the teeth are most likely to be injured at this time.
Once a tooth is hit, a dentist must be examined further.
Because sometimes the teeth look good, but the roots may already be broken.
In fact, when a baby has a broken baby tooth, it must first be determined at this part, which is usually the front tooth.
If the tooth is broken at the root, pay attention to the degree of tooth shaking.
If it is only slightly shaken, you can leave the teeth in the mouth to continue observation. If the teeth have been displaced or shaken a lot, you need to remove the entire tooth, because the primary teeth cannot be fixed, and new teeth will still be replaced in the future.So unplugging would be the best option.
In other cases, when the root of the deciduous tooth is broken, but the deepest part is left in the gum, it is not necessary to dig it out to clear it, because it will be absorbed gradually.
4What are the symptoms of long teeth?
Many mothers feel overwhelmed when their baby is having teeth, because the baby’s condition is frequent at this time, fever, diarrhea, dehydration, restless sleep at night and so on.
So, what kind of symptoms will occur when teething?
In fact, not every baby will have the so-called “growth symptoms”, so don’t worry too much.
If judging by symptoms alone, the most common ones are diarrhea, fever, skin rashes, gastrointestinal upset, etc. It is estimated that it may be due to itching of the gums during teething, plus the baby loves to touch the west during the teething stage.Grab things around and put them in your mouth, causing infection.
However, because the baby’s immunity from the mother’s body has begun to decline when the baby is in the teething stage, it is also the period when it is susceptible to infection.
Therefore, some symptoms may be caused by infection and cannot be completely reset to long teeth.
Please note that any discomfort caused by the baby’s teething will usually be eliminated within 24 hours. If the symptoms persist for several days, then the factor of the teething should be ruled out and the baby should be taken to the doctor as soon as possible to find a cure.
To alleviate the discomfort of the baby’s long teeth, you can put the teeth holder into the refrigerator first, and then give the baby a bite. The cold and hard things can effectively reduce the baby’s uncomfortable feeling of hunger.
5Is the deciduous tooth growing slowly because of too little calcium supplementation?
The speed of germination of baby teeth is related to the growth and development of everyone. Generally speaking, boys are slightly slower than girls.
However, at present, there is no literature data showing that the speed of long teeth is directly related to the amount of calcium. Moreover, the baby is rich in nutrition and there is basically no problem of calcium deficiency. Once the calcium supplement is excessive, it will easily cause the absorption of other nutrients. So, how to judge whether your baby has slow teething?
Usually babies start to germinate from 6 months of age, mainly from the front incisor of the chin, and 20 deciduous teeth (10 in the upper row and 10 in the lower row) are formed by the age of 2 and a half to 3 years.
There will be a half-year-old floating space for the entire period of germination of deciduous teeth. If the mother finds that the baby has not had the first deciduous teeth by the age of 1, or that the baby has not grown the deciduous teeth by the age of 3 and a half, then a dentist is requiredMake a professional diagnosis to confirm if your baby has pathological problems in tooth development.
6How to clean baby’s deciduous teeth?
Before your baby has teeth, he should use mouthwash to clean his mouth.
If you want to clean more carefully, you can put a small gauze or towel on your index finger and reach into your baby’s mouth for cleaning.
After the baby starts to grow teeth, in addition to the cleaning method before the extension, you can also use a soft toothbrush for your baby.
However, please note that when using a toothbrush, the force must be light, because even if the bristles are soft, excessive force will make the baby’s teeth uncomfortable.
Do I need to use toothpaste when cleaning baby teeth?
If your baby is too small, then it is best not to use toothpaste, just use a toothbrush dipped in water and gently brush.
Because toothpaste contains a lot of chemicals such as fluorine or fragrance, although it is helpful for cleaning the teeth, if the baby accidentally swallows the toothpaste into the belly, it will easily cause other troubles.
Generally speaking, the gaps between your baby’s teeth are glued to prevent dirt and dirt. However, in order to keep your teeth healthy, it is best to help your baby use dental floss to clean the teeth.
According to the part of the occlusal surface of the teeth, since the grooves are not easy to wipe with gauze or a towel, a small toothbrush is needed to clean it.
After helping your baby brush his teeth, he can wipe his teeth with a small gauze or towel to make sure that there are no white, soft attachments on the surface of the teeth. If the yellow tartar can be wiped out, it means that it has not been completelyClean.
7How to better stabilize baby teeth?
The first is to check regularly. When your baby’s appetite is getting worse or it is uncomfortable to bite something, you should pay attention to whether your baby is beginning to grow teeth.
From the age of 6 months, the dentist should be checked every 3 months, and the baby’s mouth and teeth should be checked to see if they are developing normally. Problems can also be dealt with in time.
If parents clean the baby’s deciduous teeth properly, they can be extended to 6 months to check the deciduous teeth regularly after getting permission from the dentist.
However, if there are other abnormalities in the process of teething, some gums swell and so on, etc., you should still ask the dentist to diagnose as soon as possible.
The first is to carefully choose the teeth fixation device and pay attention to training your baby’s chewing ability.
Babies like to bite things at the stage of teething. In fact, the principle is the same as that of small animals that need to grind their teeth. The teeth fixer can not only train chewing ability, but also massage the gums.
When choosing a gear holder, as long as it meets the relevant national standards and passed the safety inspection, most of the products can be purchased with confidence.
However, the teeth fixer is a toy that lets your baby put it in your mouth, so you must pay attention to whether the color will be replaced and whether the edges are smooth to prevent the baby from swallowing the paint on the surface of the toy or causing a cut in the mouth.
In order to prevent the baby from eating bacteria, don’t forget to disinfect the teether often. You can wipe it with alcohol or soak it in mouthwash, and then rinse it with boiling water to achieve a good sterilization effect.
