Dental caries is a complex pathological process, which results in the destruction of hard tooth tissues. This disease develops as a result of exposure to many adverse factors. First, focal demineralization of tooth enamel may occur, and then inflammatory complications in the area of the pulp (nerve) and periodontal take place. Depending on the depth of the lesion, dentists divide caries into the initial (spot stage), superficial, medium and deep. To determine the presence of young and older children’s caries is quite simple. For example, there is a painful reaction to cold and hot, you can also see spots of white or brown color on the teeth, there may be bad breath.
It must be remembered that when the first symptoms of caries occur, you should immediately contact a dentist because the cariosity develops rapidly in childhood. Caries can instantly affect several teeth at once, and if the measures are not taken in time, the entire dentition may be affected.
There are many causes of caries. Here are the most common ones:
Problems of children’s caries, as well as its treatment, still remain an “open question” for some parents. Even knowing that the child has caries, they are in no hurry to contact the dentist, guided by the following opinion “teeth will fall out anyway”. Such an attitude is a dangerous misconception, since infected primary teeth will lead to complications in the growth of permanent teeth, or may provoke exacerbation of other diseases in the child’s body. As a result of early removal of primary teeth, destroyed by caries, in the future there may be an abnormal occlusion, which would entail a serious orthodontic treatment.
Deep fluoridation of children’s teeth protects thinned, weakened enamel of temporary teeth, which have a predisposition to the development of multiple caries. For deep fluoridation, special gels are used. This method is well suited for the treatment of dental caries in the initial stages, as well as to eliminate the increased sensitivity of teeth.
Ozonation of teeth in children occurs by impacting the site of infection with gaseous ozone using a special apparatus. The method of ozonation of teeth in pediatric dentistry is used for the prevention and treatment of initial caries without “drilling”, that is, without using a dental machine.
Sealing children’s dental fissures is carried out with the use of special sealants, in the early stages after the tooth cut through. This procedure does not require the use of a drill; the procedure is painless and much less expensive than the treatment of advanced caries in the future.
Children’s tooth filling is the removal of a carious lesion with the use of a dental drill, with the subsequent placement of the filling in place of the defect.
