My baby’s teeth are coming out… Your baby 6. From the month the first milk begins to remove its teeth. Milk teeth are important in the development of babies. They play a role in chewing food, speaking, looking aesthetically beautiful, and removing permanent teeth
in the normal position.
Regular brushing, healthy eating habits and regular dental checkups are required for a
healthy milk tooth sequence.
Brushing should be done 2 times a day with soft and age-appropriate brushes from the
time the milk teeth come out. The purpose of brushing is to clean all white
enamel surfaces. Brushing should be done after meals with circular movements
from the gum to the mouth. Brushing should also be used only for the size of
pea grains with fluoride toothpaste appropriate to the child’s age. Before
going to bed, you should brush your teeth.
In infants, especially when falling asleep at night, drinking milk or fruit juice
with a bottle for a long time causes widespread decay of the teeth. The main
reason for these common cavities is that the teeth are in contact with these
fluids for a long time. It is therefore right that only water is given to the
baby during the night.

age, the dentist may perform a variety of fluoride treatments on the teeth
surfaces in the clinic.
Insertion of the tongue between the teeth, finger sucking and nail eating, such as bad
habits disrupt the milk tooth sequence, as well as affect the subsequent
continuous tooth sequence. Facial development is impaired.
In the elimination of these habits, pedodontists should also cooperate with pedagogla
Gum disease can be seen in childhood more during tooth wear, when breathing is done
by mouth, in closing disorders of teeth, due to bad habits and in herpes

necessary treatments should be done by dentists.
the first permanent molars, around 6 years of age, last from behind the back teeth into
the mouth, these teeth are often compared to the milk teeth. However, they are
permanent teeth and do not change. Protecting the health of these teeth the
child can chew, is of great importance in the development of the facial and Jawbone.
Protective agents called fissure sealants are applied to the chewing surfaces of milk or
permanent molars by dentists. By covering the chewing surfaces, fissure sealant
cuts the contact of these indented protruding areas to bacteria and nutrients
and prevents the formation of caries.
In nutrition, especially between meals, sugary foods such as sugar and chocolate
should be avoided. In addition, sweetened fruit juice and soda drinks should be
restricted in the Dec meals. Instead of sugary refined foods, natural, juicy
and high-fiber foods such as fruit should be recommended. Products bearing the
‘tooth-friendly’ logo should be preferred, especially if you want to eat
something sweet between meals. These products do not rot teeth.

Pedodontics, the word meaning ‘children’s dentistry’ and the period from birth to the end of
adolescence is the Department of oral and dental health of children.

the first appointment with the dentist must be made within about 6 months after the first
upper tooth has come out, or until one year of age at the latest. However, if
this happens, the dentist may monitor the child, warn the family about the
wrong eating habits and inform the family about the treatments that prevent
decay. It is important to continue these visits with a six-month break for early
treatment of caries lesions that may occur. The treatments to be applied should
be decided by taking into account the riding and falling Times of the teeth.
Tooth decay is a disease caused by bacteria that can spread from mother to
child. This is why the child’s bottle or spoon of food in the mother’s mouth by
trying to cool, close to the mouth to kiss the baby’s mouth causes other
diseases as well as the transmission of tooth decay.
mother breastfeeding her baby during the night causes teeth to decay very early. The
sugar called lactose in the structure of Mother’s milk is a very caryogenic
substance. Therefore, it is necessary to apply the final breastfeeding before
the baby goes to sleep for the long evening.
Another form of bottle rot occurs as a result of taking long-term milk or formula with
a bottle at night. Eating carbohydrates (free sugar) – rich liquids while first
teeth last can also lead to severe decay of teeth before the age of two.
In order to avoid bottle decay, it is necessary to continue the use of the bottle for up
to 12-13 months, not to use the bottle immediately before or during sleep, and
to drink water immediately after the bottle if possible, and to brush the teeth
and gums regularly.
Treatment; early diagnosis of caries, facilitates the treatment to be applied. The child
should be taken to the dentist as soon as possible. The bruises that occur at
this age can also be treated with general anesthesia.
in case of caries lesions occurring in milk teeth, the treatment method is decided based
on the age of the tooth fall, the depth of the caries and the resulting loss of
tissue. Teeth can be restored with fillers or stainless steel crowns. Permanent
tooth decay lesions can also be treated and restored with various fillers.
when dental tissue loses vitality, it can cause pain and swelling. Tooth decay or
trauma to the tooth can occur as a result of the loss of vitality. Tooth
discoloration or advanced bruises can be a sign of infection.
The infection can occur in both milk teeth and permanent teeth. You may need to use
antibiotics before root canal treatment or tooth extraction. As a result of
infections, the tooth does not always need to be pulled. If there is any doubt
about tooth injury or decay, contact your dentist as soon as possible.
if the milk tooth needs to be pulled before the fall age, it should be decided to make
a placeholder to prevent loss of space. After being measured by the dentist,
technicians prepare the placeholder. It is necessary to keep the placeholder in
the mouth until the expected tooth comes from the bottom.
The placeholders can be of two different types, fixed and movable. The teeth are
removed from the mouth by the dentist when the tooth is permanently replaced by
the pulled milk tooth.
Moving placeholders can be fitted and removed by the child. However, it should be worn
continuously to prevent ground loss, removed to clean after meals, and
reattached after brushing.
recent research on the frequency of caries shows that this frequency reaches 92-95
percent in children, especially during mixed dentition period (between the ages
of 7-11). This high rate of Decay has made it mandatory for some methods to
prevent decay to be applied on children in order to protect the child’s future
oral and dental health and, more importantly, overall health.

clean water, saline or milk and brought to the dentist as soon as possible, the
broken part can be glued to the tooth and restoration flour can be more
a severe trauma to the tooth can cause the tooth to completely exit its socket. These
accidents often occur in schools, play parks and pools where physical activity
is intense. Wearing a seat belt when travelling by car and using a protective
(mouthguard) when riding a bicycle reduces the risk of trauma.
If the tooth is permanently dislodged, it should be delivered to the dentist as soon
as possible without touching the root of the tooth, such as milk, saline, or
under the patient’s own tongue, after the tooth is found. Teeth that have
suffered this kind of trauma can be successfully re-inserted into their sockets
and restored to function when brought to the dentist in the right conditions
and as soon as possible.
orthodontic treatment is the prevention phase of corrected disorders after treatment. The
goal of this treatment is to maintain the correct positions in the time
required for the formation of new bone around the teeth and adaptation of
muscles to the new position so that the positions of the teeth and Jaws, which
are restored to the old position, do not return to the old position.
