Is it so terrible change of teeth in a child, as parents think
Six years is the age when the children have a permanent tooth replacement. The front incisors change first. The first permanent molars or, as they are called in the people, the "six" can also be seen at this age. The bite change can be divided into several stages. The first stage is the formation of an early interchangeable occlusion, it consists of the first "six" and incisors located in the center. The second stage is a period of rest, during which molars do not appear. By 9-11 years there is a change of teeth in the child in the support zone: permanent premolars stand in the place of molars. By the age of 12-13 a permanent bite is completely formed. This is the order of the teeth change in children.
Many parents with horror remember how there was a change of teeth in children: the temperature, hysterics, a sick unhappy look of a beloved child, derive them from themselves. Of course, we must understand that the emergence of both dairy and permanent teeth is an unpleasant situation. But you are able to help the baby and alleviate his suffering. As for the appearance of the first teeth, it is a painful process, and rarely one of the toddlers reacts to it with temperature. Fight it as soon as it exceeds the 38 ° mark. Use in this period and cooling teethers, dental anesthetic gels ("Calgel", "Kamistad", "Holisal"), do a bit of light gingival massage with a finger pad or special massage. Change of teeth in a child to permanent can also be accompanied by lethargy, low temperature, but tooth loss occurs painlessly in most cases. However, if the appearance of a permanent bite is prolonged, there may be inflammation of the gums, which requires consultation of the children's dentist. Sometimes a doctor can decide to snatch a milk tooth, if it's time to stimulate the appearance of a permanent tooth.
The most common error parents - their excitement about the fact that the permanent teeth rose after eruption unevenly. At 6-7 years, when a child's tooth change affects the front, central and side incisors, a large gap appears between these teeth, and one can also see that they are tilted to the side. Experience in this regard is vain. This is the physiological norm, that is, they must be at an angle because in the future the anomaly will be self-regulated. At this age, any interference from the outside is undesirable, since the alignment of the incised teeth may adversely affect the other teeth that will come up later. To be sure that the child's permanent teeth change is normal, show your child to the orthodontist.
How to keep baby teeth?
Children began to often lose their milk teeth for a natural reason, they are affected by tooth decay before they can grow. There are many reasons: malnutrition, antibiotic treatment, lack of proper hygiene. But modern technologies in medicine, or rather in pediatric dentistry, now allow the treatment of the teeth of small patients without a drill and without anesthesia. The initial caries became a real cure in one doctor's visit without drilling.
