Milk teeth are particularly susceptible to tooth decay. This makes early detection examinations and check-up appointments at our practice all the more important. This way we can detect tooth decay at an early stage and prevent teeth from having to be extracted. In the case of severely affected teeth, extensive dental rehabilitation is often unavoidable in order to treat pain and inflammation and prevent damage to the permanent teeth. We will discuss with you which teeth need to be extracted and which we can treat with high-quality plastic fillings. If necessary, extensive dental rehabilitation in children takes place under anaesthetic, accompanied by our experienced anaesthetist.
TOOTH DECAY IN CHILDREN –
QUICK, GENTLE, METICULOUS TREATMENT
TIPS FOR HEALTHY CHILDREN’S TEETH
In addition to genetic factors, drinking habits and tooth brushing play a decisive role in preventing tooth decay in children. Even from when the very first tooth appears, it should be brushed every evening. Fruit juices and sweetened teas in particular can damage teeth if children drink them repeatedly throughout the day or before going to sleep. Over time, the sugar they contain forms acids that attack the teeth. In our brushing school, children from the age of six learn how they can best keep their teeth clean. Please ask us about it in the practice if you’d like to learn more.
