DEN­TAL DANGERS

Mother & Baby - - BABY & TODDLER -

PROB­LEM

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.

SOLUTION

“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.
