To be able to protect the oral health of our children, we need to know some basic facts about children's teeth as well as their "enemies" and "friends".
Let's take a look at some useful information:
How our teeth are made:
The part of the teeth that we can see in the mouth is called a mill the part that holds the tooth in the bone and its not visible is called the root. The mill is covered externally by the enamel (tooth enamel). Under the enamel is the dentin, which is the main body of the tooth. Inside the tooth is the pulp consisting of the vessels and the nerves of the tooth while the root is covered by the cysteine.
1) They chew the food
2) They contribute to proper speech
3) They contribute to normal physique and development of the face
The first teeth of children
The appearance of the first teeth in the mouth begins around the 6th month of the child's life and ends in the third year. The young teeth are 20, 10 top and 10 down. Many believe that neonatal teeth are not important because they will later be replaced by permanent teeth. This is wrong!
These 20 temporary teeth, as long as they are healthy, will provide the child with regular chewing, which is necessary for his diet and development and hence for his health. They will still ensure proper speech and maintain the space for the correct rising of the permanent teeth, which contributes to the good appearance and normal development of the jaw and the face.
