“Children are blessings, a heaven on earth”. All our happiness is no one other than our children. Our child’s growth is the most important thing for us, which is split into different stages. One among them would be, baby’s growth that must be taken more care.  Baby’s growth is ensured by the advancement in other parts like hands and fingers, along with those the growth of their teeth is also one of the main things. If it is affected, then the outcome will be severe. So we must be cautious enough about the dental issues & their prevention with our children.

Why are children more prone to dental issues?

It is a usual fact that people will experience dental issues more than once in their lifetimes, one of the most common dental issues is the cavity . When coming to kids, they are especially more susceptible, due to the less care on their dental hygiene. According to a research, it is proved that some children are much more prone to getting cavities than others cause they may be due to, both physiological and those passed down from family members, that contribute to this disparity. Intake of excessive candies also could develop cavities unknowingly. As these candies forms bacteria, those bacteria’s deposits on their primary teeth and disturbs them while chewing and biting foodstuffs and later transforms into a cavity. Not only candies but also other food items make them prone to the cavity and other dental issues.

The early dental visit is just to get your child started on a lifetime of good health and with pearly smiles.

What happens if it is untreated?

If the dental issues of children are not treated or diagnosed, the outcome of that would be, the infection of the teeth, gums and tooth loss.

Many times, the tooth that receives the blow does not crack or fracture but just turns brown over the next few years. They are seldom noticed till teenage, until they become a cosmetic problem. The patient or the parent comes to the dentist with just one request – please turn the tooth white. While masking the colour is an easy treatment, we should not treat such browned teeth lightly since such teeth are prone to cyst formation. When any front tooth receives a sudden blow, the blood supply to the tooth through the tip of the tooth is sometimes crushed resulting in pulp necrosis (death) which leads to the browning of the tooth.
