Common Dental Issues in childhood

Nursing bottle caries:Decays are developed on milk teeth when a child is fed with sweetened liquids or sugars for a long time.Bacteria in the mouth use sugars to make acids that can attack teeth.Feeding a child at nap time is more harmful to teeth because the flow of saliva is reduced.Nursing bottle caries usually affect upper front teeth but may also impact other teeth leading to caries.

Nursing bottle caries

Rampant caries:Caries in mouth for prolonged period could lead to pain,infection,tongue thrusting,abnormal swallowing habits and speech difficulties.It is important to treat caries at an early age.The good news is that tooth decay can be prevented,with correct brushing techniques and dental visits,kids can significantly reduce the chance of a developing tooth decay.

Rampant caries

Bad Breath:Bad breath may affect anyone,regardless of their age.Dental issues like bad breath are caused due to the foods we eat.However,chronic bad breath in children could indicate a deeper root issue than eating stinky foods.Effective dental hygiene is the best way to treat and prevent bad breath,bacteria in the mouth.

Bad Breath

Teeth Sensitivity:Another common childhood dental problem is sensitive teeth.Hot or cold foods and even fluids may cause irritation and discomfort in children.To overcome sensitive teeth,an Oral Surgeon may apply sealant to the teeth,strengthen the enamel and fill cracks.Give your child a soft-bristled toothbrush for daily brushing.

Gum Diseases

Thumb Sucking:One of the most common dental issues associated with childhood is thumb-sucking.In a few children,thumb-sucking could begin in the womb.The action is comforting and automatic,which is a cause for worry in most cases.

Thumb Sucking

Tooth Fall:It can be very exciting or painful when children lose their first tooth.They may feel proud to know they’re getting older or will have permanent teeth soon.

Tooth Fall

Crooked Teeth:Baby teeth in most children move into crooked teeth positions because they’re too small to fill the amount of gum space allocated.Children between the ages of 8-11 years are in a phase of mixed dentition wherein milk and permanent teeth are present in the mouth.This phase generally begins at around 6 years with the eruption of 1st permanent molars and lasts till about 12 years of age.Several physiologic anomalies are present in the mixed dentition period,which are self-correcting&others require the properKids Smile Dentistry.

TIPS ON PREVENTING AESTHETIC PROBLEMS DURING CHILDHOOD

  • Avoid taking tetracycline antibiotics for any extended period during pregnancy or giving it to your child before the year of age.It can cause staining of primary and permanent teeth that may be impossible to remove.
  • If the water supply is properly fluoridated,giving your child vitamins containing fluoride is unnecessary.
  • Avoid foods high in calories or junk,as they may promote decay.
  • Watch out for tell-tale signs of clenching or grinding.Have your child’s dentist look for wear on the teeth surfaces.
  • If orthodontic treatment is suggested by an Implantologist or aMaxillofacial Surgeon,ensure careful oral hygiene and regular visits to your child’s dentist.
  • Learn about fillings which can be gold,plastic,silver,etc.Learn how long restorations are expected to last and what materials could be used to give your child the most appropriate treatment.
  • If it can be saved,don’t have a tooth extracted.It is better to maintain a tooth in good health.
  • If a primary or even baby tooth is prematurely lost or removed,ask your dentist for space maintainers(to preserve room for the permanent tooth).

Preparing a Child for Root Canal Treatment is Difficult

The dentist will guide the parent in preparing a child for the root canal treatment.The parent can talk to the child about what procedure will unfold and why the child needs it.Your child may even feel scared about the entire procedure.Depending upon your child's age, your dentist will take the X-rays of your child. These would help the dentist to examine the area clinically better.

This can show the dentist how bad the infection is and what possible options are available. The child will receive local anesthesia and, in some cases, might receive conscious sedation. This can help to prevent pain while the root canal treatment is being done. The child might also receive antibiotics to help prevent infections after the root canal treatment.

Reasons to take care of Milk Teeth in Children:

  • Milk teeth serve as path guides and placeholders for succeeding teeth. Premature loss of untreated milk teeth can lead to a shift of permanent teeth eruption. This means the permanent teeth to erupt will not know where to come from.
  • Permanent teeth form in between the roots of milk teeth. If milk teeth develop decay or are left untreated, the decay can spread quickly and cause damage to tooth development.
  • Milk teeth help children to chew food and provide proper nutrition contributing to the overall growth and development of the child. If milk teeth are not cared for, cavities may compromise their functions.
  • Milk teeth aid in speech development. They provide support to the facial musculature and also give shape to the child’s face. If the milk teeth are not taken care of, your child might have to go through the Kids Smile Dentistry by a Maxillofacial or an Oral Surgeon.
  • The presence of healthy milk teeth boosts personality and confidence in the child.
REASONS TO TAKE CARE OF MILK TEETH IN CHILDREN ARE GIVEN BELOW

A negative experience may instil fear in a child’s mind, specifically when a painful experience has occurred during childhood. Children feel more anxious than adults because they fear needles and the unknown. When they undergo dental treatment, the pain related to tooth decay adds to their anxiety.
Say hello to conscious sedation or sleep dentistry, which helps ease anxiety with the help of medical drugs.
Always supervise kids younger than 8 years of age while they are brushing, as they may swallow toothpaste. Keeping sugary foods in restraint encourages children to regularly brush and rinse for good health.

PREPARING KIDS FOR ROOT CANAL IN CHILDREN IS DIFFICULT!

Good Oral Hygiene Habits in Kids

  • Children should brush their teeth for at least 2 minutes twice a day. Yet, it has been seen that some children only brush once a day. Or worse, they forget to brush entirely.
  • It is important that an adult brushes or supervises their child’s brushing for at least up to 6 years.
  • Cavities can also develop when plaque and food particles aren’t removed between teeth. Flossing can be very hard for kids, so parents need to help kids with this important step.
  • Royal Dental Clinics suggests regular dental check-ups for good dental hygiene. The way adults see a dentist every 6 months, you should make dental appointments for your children.
  • Since baby teeth typically erupt at around 6 months, schedule your child’s first dental visit shortly after their first tooth becomes visible.
GOOD HYGIENE HABITS

How can a Dentist Treat Cavities in Kids?

A dental filling is common for toddlers and children with one or more cavities. Fillings can be done on both permanent and milk teeth. During the procedure, the dentist at Royal Dental Clinics removes the tooth decay and then fills the hole with white composite or metal material. Filling a cavity that forms on a milk tooth can save or can preserve the tooth.

Saving the tooth is important because losing baby teeth prematurely can cause a permanent tooth to come in. Milk teeth improperly also help your children with chewing and speaking. Dentists perform dental fillings on children and toddlers, sometimes as young as 1 or 2. In cases of severe tooth decay, your dentist might recommend a SAPTeeth crown.

Sometimes, if the tooth is badly damaged or has an infection, the milk tooth may need to be extracted. If your dentist extracts the tooth, they’ll keep the gap open with a space maintainer, which helps permanent teeth grow properly. Of course, getting young children to sit for a dental procedure is challenging. Some dentists may use sleep dentistry to help children relax during the procedure.

Your dentist might recommend breaking up the appointment if your child has multiple cavities. Royal Dental Clinics in Mumbai can complete most treatments in 1-2 sittings. Your dentist may recommend putting your child to sleep for a dental treatment called general anesthesia.

What causes Crooked Teeth in Children?

Milk and permanent teeth can come in crooked or even crooked. Baby teeth sometimes may move into crooked positions because they’re too small to fill the gum space allocated to them. Prolonged habits, such as sucking on a pacifier or thumb, can even cause baby teeth to become pushed out or crooked.
Heredity and genetics may also play a role.
A crooked milk tooth doesn’t mean your child will have crooked permanent teeth. However, permanent teeth can also be crowded if the milk teeth are densely growing. If trauma to the mouth or tooth decay causes one or more baby teeth to fall out sooner than they would naturally, the permanent teeth that follow may grow out of the gums slanted rather than straight.

Conscious sedation in children

Although some people may feel apprehension about certain dental procedures, sedation can calm worries and make the experience more tolerable. There are many different types of sedatives that a dentist can use, and each one exhibits various degrees of strength. The most powerful ones can make the patient unconscious, so the procedure is not experienced in any way. This is quite rare since dentists prefer that their patients remain conscious and be able to respond to commands.

What are the advantages of sedation in children dentistry?

  • Sedation allows us to perform more treatment in fewer visits. Whether you need a cavity filled, treatment for sore gums, cosmetic procedures to whiten your teeth, or even to fix a chipped tooth, you will be amazed at how much dental treatment can be accomplished while calmly sedating.
  • A child may sleep up to eight hours and be exhausted and irritable for up to 24 hours following sedation. When a child is sleeping, they should wake up easily.

What are the side effects of conscious sedation?

  • Sedation may slow your breathing, and the nurse may give you oxygen.
  • Your blood pressure may be affected, and you may get IV fluids to stabilise your blood pressure.
  • Because sedation effects may linger, you may have a headache, nausea, and feel sleepy for several hours.

SMILE TECHNOLOGY

Mumbai is so hot between March and June that the ocean water is at a constant, low-broiling Jacuzzi temperature. It is so hot and humid that it makes people sip cold water or cola. Dr. Chirag, a famous Oral Surgeon & Implantologist doesn’t seem to notice that because he is busy fixing extraordinary smiles. The biggest advantage of having Dr. Chirag is that he manages the smile designing at Royal Dental Clinics.

Smile designing by oral surgeons under the Kids Smile Dentistry is a procedure to improve the aesthetics of teeth and enhance your beautiful smile usually done by the Maxillofacial Surgeon. In addition, the shape, colour, size, and proportion of teeth are necessarily looked at. Fabrication and designing of crowns and bridges are done with the help of CAD-CAM and 3D printers for accurate results. The speciality at Royal Dental Clinics is that, in most cases, your child’s treatment, examination, crown fabrication and final placement; can be completed in one to two sittings by the best Implantologist & Oral Surgeons.
