It is necessary to ensure a friendly approach to each patient , first of all by teaching them how to maintain their oral health even before a severe tooth ache .
Let’s take a look at the importance of visiting dentist before the tooth hurts. A 4-5 years old child usually comes to the office scared and full of mistrust, which is justified. Then it is necessary to perform an examination, which is absolutely painless, to allow the child to take a look at the all instruments and to touch them. They are especially interested in machine brushing their teeth, as well as riding in a chair. The pediatric dentist is there to gain little patients full trust and to explain every segment of the intervention. Once you make them trust you , then every visit to the dentist is not a big deal.
Early Childhood Caries
Circular caries is a special type of carious lesions. It often occurs on the anterior surfaces of the upper incisors and canines, progresses rapidly and can cause tooth fracture. It is necessary to react quickly, in order to prevent complications. Early childhood caries is a result of the constant action of sugar from food and soft drinks. The most common cause is sweetened drinks (juices and milk) that are given to the child before the bedtime. During the night bacteries have a source of food and their action cause tooth demineralization and forming a caries cavity.
