Not to become a tooth decay

Don't you think that child's decayed teeth can be left as they are because they are replaced with permanent teeth someday?
When the baby tooth gets a cavity, cavity-causing bacterium starts to increase there, and it becomes cavity from the first growing permanent tooth.
As it has more tooth cavity-causing bacterium compared to children without a cavity, it becomes easier to become a cavity by that much.
By periodically inspecting, you can find early tooth decay and deal with the initial decayed tooth.
If it is completely decayed, there is no more way to drill.
Something a bit worrisome ..., please come and visit us with ease with your child.

Is it easy for a baby tooth to get a cavity?

A baby tooth is weaker than a permanent tooth, and the thickness is only about a half.
For that reason, when a decayed tooth begins to melt, it advances to the nerve earlier than adults think.
Furthermore, attention is necessary because the decayed back tooth is shaped so that the grooves are fine and dirt stays there easily.
It is important for children's snacks to decide the time and amount and give regular eating habits to prevent dental caries.

Regular examination

Baby teeth and permanent teeth just being grown are prone to the decayed tooth and will progress as soon as it becomes a tooth decay.
Since it is often difficult for parents to find cavities of the back molar, we recommend that you take regular check-up every 3 to 4 months.
Even if it is said that there is no tooth decay in the examination of the school, there are also decayed teeth that cannot be found unless you examine it with X-ray
Children's mouth has teeth growing and chin growth, and teeth arrangement also changes.
In the periodic medical examination, it is also possible to check about such growth and development.
By getting the right treatment as soon as possible, treatment with early caries can only be done by drilling a small area.
There is no hard, painful feeling and the treatment period will be short.
