There are a number of aspects that are important to ensure that your child has excellent dental hygiene. Some important recommendations are – Regular tooth brushing at least twice a day, rinsing after every meal, regular dental checkups and getting preventive dental treatments like fluoride APF gel application and Pit and Fissure sealants. It is important that the points are followed to ensure healthy teeth. Try and incorporate these practices in your everyday life.
Either your child is having a deep cavity that is infected and needs appropriate treatment or your child must be in the teething period and probably getting a new tooth in the mouth. It is important that you ask your child to show you his/her teeth. It is important that you consult a dental specialist as soon as possible to ensure that the situation does not complicate. During the consultation do ask the doctor the diet recommendations and restrictions along with steps for dental hygiene.
In case your child knocks out a permanent tooth then the first thing is to immediately get your child to the nearest dentist along with the tooth. Just gently wash the tooth for 10 seconds with cold water and get it either soaked in milk or just ask your child to hold it in his/her mouth if your child is that big enough. Do not soak it in water or do not wash it vigorously with water. In case you are able to get your child and his/her tooth to the dentist in the first 1 hour of teeth falling, then the dentist will be able to save his/her tooth after some treatment and put it back in the mouth.
Fluoridated toothpastes that are made for babies are advised, as fluoride toothpastes helps to prevent tooth decay. A pea size paste should be dispensed on the brush so that even if the child swallows the paste it’s not in excess and is gentle on the stomach. Consult a child dentist and get trained on how to handle children while brushing their teeth. The amount of pressure that is required and how to ensure that the child spits out the paste.
Yes, thumb sucking and use of a pacifier is harmful. Its continuous use exerts pressure on the front upper and lower teeth along with the bone which is soft during the growing stage. This causes deformity of teeth and bones. Do not promote the use of a thumb or a pacifier. Try and discourage the use. If your child is teething, opt for a cold tether. If the habit persists consult a pediatrician or a psychologist.
Children should brush at least twice a day – once post dinner before sleeping and then post breakfast in the morning so that the child’s teeth are safe during the day. It is the duty of the parent to ensure that the habit is a part of the child’s daily routine. It is essential that a child understands the importance of prevention.
Baby bottle mouth or Nursing bottle caries as also called is a kind of cavity that starts from the gums and extends to the entire tooth surface circumferentially. It’s the only kind of cavity that spreads to adjacent teeth, thereby giving it a look of black broken teeth especially among the front teeth. It happens due to intake of milk with or without sugar, juices, rice, sweet chocolates, chips etc. This doesn’t mean that the child is prohibited from the intake of such products but one should try giving them in the first half of the day and it’s the parent’s duty to ensure that they clean their children’s teeth with wet cotton or a cloth post the child has eaten. There are few dental fluoridated creams that help to re-calcify the teeth. If parents get their children for regular dental checkups then this can be avoided. The first stage of detection is white discoloration of teeth.
You can give the child a Cold Tether to bite. This helps the inflamed gums. You can also apply an anesthetic ointment incase of severe pain and irritation. This should be followed by gentle massage on the gums. It is important that you consult a doctor about the ointment. Ask your dental specialist about the pressure allowed for the massage and how to maintain the sterility of the cold tether. It is a tough time for your child and it is important to maintain patience during the same. A cranky child can test your nerves, but remain calm and remember that it is just a passing phase.
Children start teething at the age of 6months. Usually at first the bottom front milk teeth erupt followed by the others. In some cases one may find neonatal teeth i.e. the baby is born with conical shape teeth. There is nothing to worry in that case as the same fall on their own and are replaced by milk teeth. The milk teeth come at the same time as other children- at the age of 6 months. One should be aware of the do’s and don’ts that are associated with teething- dental hygiene, diet restrictions & recommendations are necessary.
You child should see a dentist at the age of 6 months to 1 year. When the first milk tooth erupts in the mouth the child should see a dentist. This is an important phase as the doctor suggests on the measures that are to be taken during teething. Also some precautionary points are to be explained as children tend to become cranky during the teething time. It is necessary to ask about oral hygiene, type of tooth paste and dietary restrictions.

My baby was a low weight & needed special attention so baby was brought to Paras Bliss Hospital under the care of Dr. Krishan Yadav and from the day I felt comfortable to leave the baby in hospital under his care.
