“It doesn’t matter if the baby’s primary teeth grow well, they will be replaced sooner or later.
” many parents think that their baby’s teeth are not good.
in fact, this is a wrong idea.
if the primary teeth are not well protected, the arrangement of the primary teeth will be uneven.
Moreover, once the caries grows, it will seriously affect the root of the tooth, and then affect the baby’s jaw development, eating and language functions, and even affect the baby’s face.
therefore, relevant experts remind that the primary teeth are equally important, and the protection of the baby’s teeth should be done from infancy.
It’s a habit to suck your fingers
From birth, Lili has become the center of the family.
wants to eat and play, and her family will try their best to satisfy her.
although living in the family’s love environment, Lili has not developed any big bad habits, but her children always like to suck their fingers to make the family a little worried.
No, Lili’s teeth began to have problems when she was 5 years old. The front teeth and other teeth were in disorder one by one and suffered from caries at the same time? It’s hard for parents to understand
If genetic factors are excluded, most of the tooth deformities in children are caused by bad oral habits.
, like Lili’s habit of sucking her fingers, will lead to malocclusion and other deformities such as narrow arch of teeth, high arch of palatal lid, protrusion of upper anterior teeth, open lips, exposed teeth and distal malocclusion. Callose and finger bending can also occur on fingers.
In addition, bad habits such as biting the lips, spitting out the tongue, biting foreign bodies, supporting the gills and chewing laterally can also produce improper force on the jaw and teeth, resulting in opening and closing, facial asymmetry, etc.
The influence of dentomaxillary deformity is not small
Although the deciduous teeth will be replaced sooner or later, but the deciduous teeth are not well protected, the same impact will not be small
In the process of children’s growth and development, if there is tooth and jaw deformity, it will affect the normal development of the soft and hard tissues of the occlusal maxillofacial region If the anterior crossbite is not treated in time, the lower arch will restrict the development of the premaxilla, but the mandible will not coordinate with the upper and lower arch and develop forward excessively, thus forming the depression in the face and the mandibular protrusion deformity. With the serious malocclusion, the face shape will become “Crescent”.
At the same time, the possibility of caries is also increased when the teeth are crowded and dislocated in malocclusion.
once it is serious, it will bring abnormal pronunciation, and the locking of the posterior teeth will also affect the masticatory function.
In addition, dentomaxillary deformity is not only limited to these local effects, but also may bring systemic harm.
for example, if there are “earth covering the sky”, “fangs”, “tiger teeth”, etc., it is bound to bring harm to children’s mind.
The treatment of “earth and sky” should be at the age of 4
The anterior crossbite, commonly known as “the earth envelops the sky” and “the pocket of teeth”, is very common in clinical practice. Some people think that “the crossbite of the primary teeth does not matter, and it will be better after the replacement of the teeth.
” some people also think that “the earth envelops the sky” must be treated after the replacement of the permanent teeth.
in fact, this is a wrong idea.
“Pocket teeth” will seriously affect the normal growth and development of the mouth, face and jaw, and its harm will be greater with the increase of age.
if the best opportunity for correction is lost, a more serious permanent reverse occlusion will be formed after tooth replacement, and the face shape will be aggravated with it, and the difficulty and time of treatment will increase.
Therefore, early treatment is the best choice when your baby has teeth problems
It’s better to treat “pocket teeth” when the child is 4 years old.
at this time, the child has formed a relatively stable primary occlusion, and this stage of treatment can have a beneficial effect on the development of the successor permanent teeth and jaw
However, in clinical practice, there is also the situation that the permanent teeth erupt and the anterior teeth are reversed after the correction of the deciduous teeth. At this time, it needs to be corrected again according to the condition.
but it should be emphasized that the severity of bone deformity in this kind of patients is greatly reduced, and the prognosis effect will be better than that of the untreated children in the deciduous teeth period.
Take care of your teeth from infancy
In addition to genetic factors, parents should develop healthy oral habits for their children
Do not lie down for feeding. If you lie down for a long time for feeding, the baby’s mandible may be over extended, which is easy to cause reverse occlusion. The correct feeding position of
should be about 45 ° reclining position or half lying position
When children grow teeth, they should help and urge them to brush their teeth well to prevent the occurrence of caries
If the caries of primary teeth is not treated in time, and they have to be removed, a space maintainer must be made to protect the space after the teeth fall off.
otherwise, the teeth before and after the missing teeth will move and incline, and the teeth for occlusion will grow too long.
that will lead to malocclusion
Parents should urge their children to correct bad habits such as biting lips, biting pencils and spitting tongue as soon as possible
