CHILD DENTITION

Did you know that children’s teeth begin to develop under the gums from before birth?

The teeth begin to develop during the embryonic stage of the baby, but do not become visible (erupt) until childhood.

Generally the onset of teething begins between 6 and 8 months of age, although it may vary from one child to another, and it is also normal for some children to not start until after 8 months.
Whatever the case, at 30 months of age the temporary or milk teeth should be erupted.

How many baby teeth do you have in total?

20 teeth of milk, which must be complete at 3 years of age.

At 6 years of age, the eruption of permanent teeth usually begins, usually ending at age 12.

During the eruption process, from 6 to 12 years old, children will have a mixed dentition consisting of temporary teeth and permanent teeth.

What are the symptoms of teething?
Some babies go through this process without any problem, but the vast majority have symptoms of discomfort, discomfort, even pain; Some of these symptoms can be:

- Irritability or discomfort
– Saliva drooling
– Rejection of food
– Need to bite or chew constantly
– Sleep disorders
– Inflammation and tenderness in the gums.

The teething process does not cause fever, nor diarrhea, if your child has a fever during this process, the cause may be different.

What to do to ease the discomfort?
– Give your baby something cool to chew and bite, it will relieve the feeling of burning or pressure.
Another option, rub your gums with a clean finger, gently but firmly, to temporarily relieve the discomfort.
– If you do not want to eat, soft and cold foods will ease swallowing and relieve pain.
– Never give or apply any medication that has not been recommended by your pediatrician or dentist. Ask your practitioner before trying any medication.

It is important that you begin with the oral hygiene of your baby very early, even before your first tooth appears.
After feeding your baby, clean your gums with a gauze moistened with water, passing it with your finger. When you start teething, use a baby toothbrush, without toothpaste, until age 2. From the age of 2, you can use a pinch of toothpaste (the size of a lentil), special for children.

TRICKS AND TREATMENTS TO ENJOY HALLOWEEN WITHOUT FEAR TO THE CARIES

Halloween is a traditional celebration that has been celebrated for a long time in the USA and, not very few years ago, we also celebrate it in Spain.

We’re not going to tell the kids in the house not to take candy on Halloween, we’ll let them enjoy the party, but we’ll consider some tricks or deals:

Tip: Choose correctly

A good choice is to encourage them to eat those candies that melt quickly and that are easily consumed, avoid the sticky ones that remain long in the mouth, stick on the teeth and are difficult to consume.
If we do not have the dental hygiene kit with us, rinse the mouth with plenty of water immediately after consuming candies, thus decreasing the time that the sugar stays in contact with the teeth.

Treatment: Establish a schedule for consumption

We are going to take advantage of this party to establish with our children a time or a certain time to consume candies, in this way we will teach them that this type of food we must consume them with moderation and of passage, when establishing a specific moment or time for their consumption, our children They will know they have a time or time to enjoy their favorite candies, so they will be less likely to think about eating them at any other time of the day.

Trick and Treat: Visiting the Dentist

Go to a review with your child before Halloween, it’s a good time to have a review.

And last trick or treat … The whole family to brush their teeth before going to sleep.

¡HAPPY HALLOWEEN!
