In this post today, I would like to elucidate you upon the various modalities of treatment that you may face. A simple explanation of each and the decision making you and the dentist have to go through.
The key to prevention of Early Childhood Caries or any other form of caries lies in dealing prudently with the causes underscored in the last post. The principle of prevention has to do with limiting exposure to sugar, reducing the amount of germs or bacteria that child has, protecting the teeth with fluoride, and visiting the dentist.
Having knowledge of the cause of the disease will undoubtedly help us in prevention of this disease. As we continue on the path of Oral Health for our child, the forthcoming script will deal with the basic components that lead to decay of teeth or dental caries.
Traditionally, the number of parents bringing their children for a regular dental check up is nix, naught and nothing, at least in our developing world. The bell rings only when the teeth are rotten, ugly and unsalvageable or when the child complains of pain or a big swelling appears on their cheeks or neck.
