Temporary (milk) teeth are twenty in number. Have certain characteristics that determine much different course of caries compared with permanent teeth. For example, due to poor mineralization, thinner layers enamel and dentin caries in deciduous teeth occurs very quickly and is relatively widespread. In the period into which the temporary replacement of a permanent tooth due to the resorption of the roots of the milk teeth, dental pulp in a state of dying of basic functions. Therefore its regenerative abilities are reduced and inadequate tooth responds to pathological stimuli. This means that considerable destruction of dental crown, the child does not feel weak or experiencing pain that quickly fades. This entails considerable risks for the underlying germ of future permanent teeth.


  Why should we treat the temporary teeth cavities? Right after being removed will be replaced with permanent? There are at least five reasons why temporary teeth should be retained:

dental care

Children should visit the dentist regularly - every six months for early diagnosis and timely treatment of dental decay. Moreover, the dentist monitors timely Is eruption of the permanent teeth, normally it takes growth of the jaws, tooth germs, etc. Children need to get used to the idea early on for regular check-ups to make them more accountable to the hygiene of their teeth. The behavior of the child to the dentist's chair depends largely on the behavior of parents. If they are worried and scared this condition is transmitted to the child, which greatly hampers the further work. Therefore preparation for dentist should begin at home.

The child should be explained in the appropriate format for dental treatment (remember the story of Hammer and Puck, who live in children's teeth and havoc?). Well will affect the healing process, if the child is brought into the dentist's situation awareness without being committed to any manipulation. In any case, the child should not be threatened! Especially dangerous is the vicious attempt to restrain children by threatening to "Uncle Doctor". Children have a very vivid imagination and often take your words at face value. The rejection of such a notion is often impossible. The child must be aware of upcoming treatments to be convinced that they should be made and to be encouraged and rewarded accordingly. Extreme forms of restraint - intimidation, reprimand, loss of privileges should be used really "last resort"!
