Black and flaky teeth is a problem that is often experienced by children, this condition is called dental caries. Dental caries is a disease of the hard tissues of the teeth caused by bacterial activity in plaque that causes tooth demineralization. Morphologically, primary teeth are smaller than permanent teeth, the enamel and dentin layers are thinner. Therefore, caries in primary teeth develops more rapidly and is more severe than in permanent teeth.
Primary teeth have a role as a masticatory and aesthetic function. It also plays an important role in the growth and development of the jaw and its replacement teeth. Generally, the age of 6-12 years is the time when children change teeth, from milk teeth to adults. The baby teeth will fall out one by one when your child enters the age of 6 to 12 years. At the age of about 12 years, children have had 28 permanent teeth or adult teeth. Four wisdom teeth will appear when he turns 16 or 19 years.
Primary teeth usually don't fall out until the permanent teeth push the baby teeth to replace them. Some children lose their first tooth at the age of 4 years but there are also those who experience it when they are 7 years old. In general, the younger the child is when his first tooth comes in, the earlier it will fall out. It is possible for children to lose their teeth before the permanent teeth are ready to replace them, as in the case of cavities.
Here are some tips to keep your child's teeth from cavities:
Avoid or reduce sugary foods. Eating lots of sweet foods or drinks, such as sugar cane, candy, ice cream, soft drinks, coffee, tea and others, can cause tooth decay to accelerate. Brush your teeth every day. Brush your teeth regularly every day, at least 2 times a day, and brush your teeth immediately after the child finishes eating sweet foods or drinks. Start brushing your child's teeth when his teeth have started to grow. So you don't have to worry, your nephew's teeth will be able to grow again, the primary teeth will be replaced with permanent teeth as they age. Our advice, you should still consult a dentist, yes.
