Madrid, February 2012.- milk teeth have key importance for the development of a healthy and strong in the adult stage smile, says Dr. Germán Zarandieta, specialist clinics Milenium Dental of Sanitas.
Teeth need to be careful since its inception. There are very gentle brushes so that children learn to brush our teeth in these early years which, in addition to the cleaning itself, need to acquire the habits of oral hygiene. Once displayed the first molar from milk, brushing is a more important. The ideal is that they wash the teeth three times a day – one after each meal – but it is especially important that never forget in the morning, after breakfast and before going to bed.
However, there are children who, even while maintaining a proper oral hygiene, have greater tendency to suffer from caries: good for having a teething at which the grooves and fissures are very pronounced, or because their teeth have enamel more weak, or his type of saliva. There may even be a certain genetic predisposition.
In addition to hygiene, Dr. Zarandieta, one of the top specialists of the Milenium Sanitas Dental clinics advised that, during the first years avoid that children go to bed with a bottle of juice or milk, because that can cause cavities become very aggressive. If you need drinking throughout the night, water is the best option.

gingivitis, inflammation in the gums caused by food debris trapped between the teeth and causing bleeding gums. The latter is not usually serious and often due simply to incorrect brushing, but also can be a symptom of more serious illness.
It is important to treat cavities in the first dentition so the child has a proper chewing and his mouth to develop properly. If not, could destroy more tooth tissue and even affect the nerve. At this point, the child will have inflammation and pain, which sometimes can become intense,.
Visit to the dentist on time to avoid orthodontics
Usually, a milk tooth moves because its root has been reabsorbed by pressure of the final tooth that will come out in its place. Dr. Germán Zarandieta, specialist clinics Milenium Dental of Sanitas, explains that “ in principle, only should intervene if the situation continues and the final tooth begins to leave simultaneously. In this case Yes its extraction is advised to allow the permanent tooth his departure ”.
If pieces are lost prematurely, it is necessary to maintain the space so that, subsequently, the permanent tooth can leave as correctly as possible. Regular visits to the dentist would have controlled the tooth replacement and even prevent future orthodontics.
