How To Deal With Remaining Root Teeth In Children Aged 5 Years?
Ass … I want to ask … I have a nephew in December 5 years, about dental problems … back then, when I was 2 years old, almost all of the upper teeth in the front part were broken due to the fall, there were still half of the teeth left, until now the half-toothed teeth were left in the gills , what is the solution .. r nThank you in advance
Hi Gus Hida, thank you for the question for HealthReplies.com
What do you mean by the teeth in the gills only the root remains?
Teeth have a very important role for children. Disorders of the teeth can not only cause eating disorders, but also can cause speech disorders in children. Therefore, dental health is very important to be cared for, even from the first time the teeth grow as babies. Dental care is especially necessary if the tooth has caries or cavities. Caries and cavities in children's teeth are hotbeds of infection. Infections of the teeth can be dangerous because they can spread to the gums and surrounding tissue, and can even spread to the heart, and to the blood, causing sepsis.
If indeed your nephew's teeth have caries until only the roots are left, you should immediately recommend it to a pediatric dentist. Allowing the remaining carious tooth roots to stick without treatment can cause permanent tooth growth problems later. Teeth can grow out of place, grow with abnormal serrations, or become yellowish in color.
In the future, suggest doing good dental care for children. Make sure the child brushes their teeth at least 2 times a day, help the child brush their teeth so that their teeth are really clean. Reduce the provision of sweet foods to children, and make sure children brush their teeth after eating sweet foods. Do not give milk with a pacifier before bed. If the child drinks milk before bed, make sure the child brushes their teeth afterward. Have your child checked by the dentist every 6 months for better cleaning and treatment of any existing dental problems.
So much information from me, hopefully it will be enough to answer
