According to recent researches on caries frequency, it is seen that the frequency of caries in children reaches to 90% both in the period of milk tooth (2-6 years) and in the period of mixed dentition (7-12 years). For this reason, it is very important to apply decaying protective methods in order to protect dental health and important general health. Children's dentists can protect their teeth and teeth which have a significant impact on their general health as well as oral and dental health by making these protective applications at the right time according to the child's teeth and age development.

Common Problems in Children

Rotten; The main reasons for the decay of children in juveniles are that they stay on the tooth surfaces for a long time (especially at night), such as honey milk, Apart from these, insufficient brushing, unhealthy nutrition, and acid drinks. The decayed area in the teeth is cleaned and filled, and the tooth is kept healthy in the mouth.

Blow; It's a question that is common in children. Even if there is no problem with the impacted tooth, it is absolutely necessary to consult the dentist. The pulp, which is the vital texture of teeth, can lose its vitality due to the impact of the incoming pulse. This may be temporary or permanent. When you lose your dental viability, pain can cause problems with absent or under-exposed female fingers. Other problems that can occur with the impact may be the removal of teeth, displacement, or burial. In this case, the dentist should go to the dentist as soon as possible. The displaced or buried tooth should be replaced by soft hand movements and the dental viability should be checked with regular checks. If the tooth has come out of your mouth, you should immediately go to a dentist in a short time (not more than 1 hour) by holding it in a pill, serum or spit. In this case, it may be possible to replace the tooth.

Broken; If the broken part of the tooth is not lost, it should be hid and taken to the dentist. The broken part can be bonded to the other part of the tooth again with the help of bonding agents. If a broken tooth can not be found, the fractured tooth can be restored with composite fillings. Some fractures can be too large to be corrected by filling. In this case, composite veneer application can be done.

Tooth extraction; Milk or permanent teeth should be removed in a situation that can not be done with the treatment. After the milk teeth have been pulled, the permanent teeth will come down. In order to maintain the permanent tooth position, a place holder must be made. When they are continuously pulled by the tooth, no other tooth comes to their place. In such cases, orthodontic treatment may be necessary for the position of the teeth, closure and aesthetics to remain properly, and a dentist must be consulted.

Cleaning; Removal of bacteria on the teeth is the process of removing the plaque. In particular, the first meeting with a dentist is performed at appointments and allows the child to get used to other treatments and physicians.

Protective Applications

Oral Care-Brushing; The first teeth should not start to be cleaned, as they do not appear in the mouth. Using a clean cheesecloth or gauze; After breakfast in the morning and before bed at night, the teeth should be wiped clean. Toothbrush use can be started after the rear teeth of the baby have come out. It is very difficult to propose and apply a technique for brushing teeth in pre-school children. What is important at this age is to give the child a toothbrushing habit. Children often brush their teeth when they are brushing their visible or easily accessible faces. However, the microspheres are easier to accumulate on the interfaces of teeth or chewing surfaces. For this reason, parents must check after brushing. At school age, it is suggested that the brush should be placed with a 45 ° incline instead of the tooth-gum combination and rotate the visible surfaces of the teeth, then brushing the chewing surfaces of the teeth back and forth.

Application of Flor; At present, the most known substance to strengthen tooth structure is the "fluoride" compounds. Fluoride is an element that strengthens the structure of the teeth, preventing tooth decay. Fluoride toothpastes are found in some nutrients as well. But since children often neglect to brush their teeth, their teeth do not have enough fluoride so they can resist rot. Professional superficial fluoride applications are performed in our clinic in order to prevent this situation. Professional superficial fluoride application is a method that can only be performed by dentists. Superficial fluoride application is especially used in children whose teeth tend to decay. On this count, fluoride is stored on the teeth in sufficient quantity and the tooth structure is strengthened and resistant to decay. Superficial fluoride administration can only be effective if it is done every 6 months. For this, bring your children to your dentist regularly every 6 months.

Fissure Sealent; The chewing surfaces of the teeth are recessed. These pits and hills are called pits and fissures. These regions are very short and are usually places where bruises start because food can not be cleaned. A special fluid filling material is used to prevent food and microorganism accumulation in these regions and accordingly rot. First of all, this area is completely cleaned and the fluid filling we call fissure sealant is applied to this area. It is hardened with light and polished by correcting excesses. By this process it is possible to protect against the rotten surface of the chewing surface, which constitutes about 70% of all caries. Although they can be used for many years under normal conditions, it is useful to check them frequently, especially when they have habits such as ice chewing and tooth creaking.

It is ideal for the period when the first permanent teeth in the mouth come out. This is around 6 years old. The other molar is applied to the others during the rubbing of their teeth. An important point is that it will be better to have your permanent teeth shortly after you start riding (within 1-2 years). Because the prolongation of the period increases the likelihood of bruising and filling instead of fissure sealant may be necessary.

While it can be applied in older adults, it is more useful and important to use in children. It is absolutely painless and very easy to operate.

Place Holder; In early tooth loss situations, it is the devices used to ensure that the existing teeth are kept in place and that the permanent teeth can be properly placed in the cavities. With the premature loss of the dairy teeth, the teeth will move towards the gap. This creates confusion and causes chewing and speech disorders. If your child's premature loss of milk teeth due to rot or trauma; it is very important for your child to have an ideal dental sequence at an early age! There are two types of placeholders:

1- Fixed place holders 1 yada 2 milk tooth loss is intended to protect the position of the permanent permanent lower teeth in the mouth constantly removable permanent teeth can be removed from the apparatus.

2- Movable placeholders

1 denier milk tooth loss can be applied as teeth or teeth can be made. Ordinary bottle decay or traumatized front tooth loss in the teeth in general, we are referred to placeholder child prostheses are applied.
