4 Year Olds Don’t Want To Eat Because Of Cavities?
my child is 4th, he will not eat because every meal his cavities hurt so what is the solution🙏🙏🙏🙏
Hello Opix, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com.
Cavities accompanied by pain, both when eating and spontaneous pain (when not eating / drinking) can be a sign that an infection has occurred in the hole so that it requires further treatment by the dentist.
Therefore, the best solution for your child is to check the condition of his teeth to the dentist for examination and determination of further therapy such as dental fillings, tooth root treatment or tooth extraction if the damage is severe enough. You can give pain relievers such as paracetamol according to the dosage on the packaging when your child is going to eat, but still have to check the teeth at the dentist. It is not recommended to take drugs other than paracetamol, especially antibiotics, without clear advice from your child's dentist.
If the damage is not treated properly, it will certainly cause your child to continue to experience pain and even more severe infections of the teeth. In addition, if your child becomes difficult to eat, it is very risky to cause nutritional deficiencies that can cause your child's growth and development problems, and also make your child more vulnerable to infection.
I hope this helps.
