Tooth decay – the first enemy
In our country there is hardly a person who would never suffer from toothache. Her fault is often tooth decay – the process of destruction of dental hard tissues as a result of the activity of bacteria. Tooth decay threatens even the very first tooth of the baby, which is why doctors recommend to wipe it with a soft cloth that is clean.
To protect against dental caries of children – the parents. This disease is contagious, and thus not worth to lick the nipples, spoons, cups children. To help avoid it in the future, making the fissures. This procedure seals the grooves on permanent teeth of the child and does not allow bacteria to penetrate into thin cracks. It is important to conduct sealing fissures within six months after the eruption of permanent molars, which usually appear at the age of 5-6 years.

Caries – an infectious disease and therefore not worth to lick the nipples, spoons, cups children.
Adults to protect against tooth decay helps regular visits to the dentist. The doctor should go twice a year, on his recommendation to do professional hygiene and properly care for the mouth daily. It is irresponsible to leave a “hole” in the tooth, as a tooth decay to spread quickly and provoke five new formations.

The less saliva is produced, the less natural protection of the mouth against infections, the greater the risk of tooth decay.
The responsibility is on the parents
The health of permanent teeth depends on the condition of the milk. If you do not pay attention to the decay that started in primary teeth, it can take permanent and destroy them before the eruption. Baby teeth prepare the place for the emergence of indigenous. Early removal of a baby tooth can disrupt the permanent occlusion, force adult teeth to emerge out of the dentition. Therefore, the removal of teeth prior to the deadline for reasons that they will fall out anyway – a wrong decision.
