Pediatric Dentistry, Caring for baby teeth
Caring for milk teeth and regular visits to the dentist are underestimated often by many children's parents. But the truth is, the prevention of dental caries in children begins before birth by treatment and enlightenment of parents. For the first visit to the dentist's the child should come within the first year of age. It is necessary to refute the widespread assertion that tooth decay is inheritable - it is an infectious disease transmitted by parents (especially mothers) to their children by licking pacifiers, spoons and so on. Therefore, the expectant mother should undergo dental treatment before the baby is born. It is important to realize that a children learn health habits from their parents, underestimating the prevention and care of milk teeth can leave long-term consequences. Regular preventive visits have not only prevented the fear of the dentist but also help the early diagnosis of caries, allowing noninvasive and painless treatments (fluoridation, ozone).
