The occurrence of caries can not be separated from bacteria, food, time and other factors, but also related to the quality of teeth.
according to the causes of caries, the following suggestions are given to prevent the occurrence of caries:
Suggestion 1: pay attention to supplement protein, vitamins and minerals during pregnancy to promote the healthy development of fetal teeth.
The development of teeth begins in the fetal period. Malnourished pregnant women not only affect the growth and development of the fetus, but also cause enamel hypoplasia and calcification in the fetus. This kind of tooth is the most susceptible to acid corrosion and caries Therefore, pregnant women should have a variety of food, balanced nutrition, and ensure the intake of rich protein, vitamin and mineral calcium and phosphorus, so that the fetus can form healthy teeth.
Suggestion 2: to be good for a baby, it is necessary to form a good eating habit from childhood
Developing good eating habits is not only conducive to the development of children’s body, but also necessary for the healthy development of children’s teeth. The main foods that are conducive to the development of teeth are: grains and grains, beans, milk and dairy products, fish, eggs, vegetables and fruits.
In addition to a large number of natural nutrients, these foods, such as coarse grains, vegetables, melons and fruits, are also helpful for chewing function, saliva secretion, normal development of children’s maxillofacial region, periodontal tissue health and tooth surface cleaning
In addition, when the baby’s primary teeth just erupt, try to eat less sugar and sweets, especially don’t eat sweets before going to bed at night.
because it’s baby’s nature to like to eat sugar and sweets, so even if you eat sweets, you should also pay attention to the following points: ① limit the content of sugar in food, and eat less sweet food.
② limit the habit of eating snacks.
Because of the underdeveloped enamel and the poor resistance to bacteria, children are more likely to develop caries.
③ eating less sticky sweets can reduce the contact time between food and tooth surface, because sticky sweets are not easy to be cleared by saliva and lip and tongue movements.
Suggestion 3: for babies, good oral hygiene habits should be developed from infancy.
A good oral habit should be developed before a baby has baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s baby’s From the age of 3, teach children the correct brushing method, wash their teeth in the morning and in the evening, wash their mouths after meals and snacks, remove the residual food and bacteria adhering to the tooth surface in time, and reduce the action time of food and bacteria on the teeth.
Suggestion 4: pit and groove sealing can effectively prevent caries.
Because there are many narrow grooves in the occlusal surface of bicuspid and molar, food is easy to be kept in the grooves, which is conducive to the propagation of bacteria.
because the grooves are too narrow, toothbrush hair can not enter into the grooves to completely remove food debris.
therefore, the occlusal surface of molar and bicuspid teeth is prone to pit and fissure caries.

Suggestion 5: early detection and treatment of caries and timely treatment of deciduous caries are necessary
At the beginning of caries, there is no pain or other uncomfortable feeling, which is easy to be ignored.
patients often come to see a doctor when the caries is already very heavy and severe pain occurs.
at this time, the pulp has been invaded, and the treatment process is much more complicated.
If regular examination can be carried out, caries can be found at the beginning of formation, and the treatment is much simpler.
therefore, it is necessary to check teeth regularly for timely discovery and treatment.
In addition, it is necessary to have a correct understanding of caries of primary teeth. Caries of primary teeth can affect the normal development of permanent teeth, cause the eruption obstacle and uneven dentition of permanent teeth, change the color of teeth, appear chalk and black, seriously affect the beauty and language development of children, even affect the self-esteem and social disorder of children
Therefore, it is a mistake to think that the primary teeth will fall off in the end and have no great impact on children. If you have caries of primary teeth, you must also treat it in time
