As Baby grew older, their parts of the body slowly developed and the teeth began to sprout. In general, the child will eject the first tooth in about 7 months and grow all the deciduous teeth in two and a half years. Of course, this deciduous tooth is not a permanent tooth and will be replaced with a permanent tooth later. So does this deciduous tooth need to be protected?
- Long teeth will also bring some problems
Some children will also feel a little discomfort because of long teeth, such as loss of appetite, low fever, and even diarrhea. These symptoms last for a short time, parents don’t need to worry, and don’t need to take their children to see a doctor. At this point, you can prepare a clean tooth gel or a cool wet towel for the child to bite. There are also some gels and ointments on the market that relieve toothache, and parents can give them to their doctors at the doctor’s advice.
- Changes from deciduous teeth to permanent teeth
Although the deciduous teeth will all fall off in the future and are replaced by permanent teeth, parents should also protect the baby’s deciduous teeth, because the deciduous teeth have an important influence on the baby’s chewing ability and pronunciation ability. Of course, after the permanent teeth have replaced the deciduous teeth, the care of the permanent teeth will be more important. Because it is the last pair of teeth of a person. When the baby is seven years old, some of the deciduous teeth will fall off and replaced by permanent teeth.
What happens when the permanent teeth grow out
During the process of growing the permanent teeth, the deciduous teeth will loosen before they fall completely, and some will bleed. When bleeding, you can use gauze to stop bleeding on the gums. After the deciduous teeth are completely detached, a white tip may appear. This is the permanent tooth that has just erupted. Some babies have grown their permanent teeth, but the deciduous teeth are still strong. If this happens, it is necessary to find a dentist and remove the deciduous teeth in time to prevent them from affecting the permanent teeth.
What should I do if my baby has deciduous teeth?
Tooth decay does not only occur in adults, but now the child eats too much candy and is also prone to tooth decay. Although in the early stages of tooth decay, the teeth do not rot and do not hurt, but if left untreated, the decay of the teeth will extend and cause toothache.
