With the temperature in the winters dropping down, dental problems like sensitivity and discomfort become a common issue in kids. Children face similar problems like adults, when it comes to teeth. Babies who are teething, and toddlers who may be having severe cold, are prone to sensitivity, discomfort and probably even tooth-ache during winters, because of their oral cavity getting exposed to the cold.
“If your child suffers from tooth sensitivity, do not give any edibles that are too cold or too hot” says aesthetic dentist Dr Karishma Jaradi of Dentzz Dental Care Centres. “Regular brushing and flossing are the best ways to evade any kid of dental issue from hampering your child’s health. Also, maximise your number of dental appointments with the paediatric dental expert to fix any kind of unnoticed oral problems.” Babies who are on a milk diet, are at a risk of developing dental caries due to the sugar in the milk. This condition erodes the outer enamel layer and makes the teeth more sensitive to cold. Be sure to rinse the baby’s mouth once it consumes milk. It is also advisable to keep the child from developing sinusitis by giving appropriate medicine, because that also leads to toothache and general discomfort.
