As a reminder, cavities are formed when bacteria accumulate around the enamel, destroy it and then attack the tooth. This is especially true during the growth of the child since tooth enamel is particularly fragile. Bacteria do not act out of their own accord of course, they simply feed on sugars and turn them into acid. The trail of gastroesophageal reflux should also be examined. HOW TO PREVENT CHILDHOOD CAVITIES? Any dentist will tell you the two keys to reducing or even avoiding cavities are: having an appropriate diet and impeccable oral hygiene . Unfortunately a child very rarely respects these two parameters. The foods he likes are often very sweet and sour (candy, soda, juice, etc.) and he doesn't really understand the importance of regular brushing . Regarding tooth brushing, it is important to support your child to teach him both how to do it correctly but also to set an example and turn brushing into a habit that should not be neglected. Finally, a regular visit to the dentist is required, once or twice a year minimum. It makes it possible to check that all is well and to give important recommendations. IN WHICH CASE TO CHOOSE THE DENTAL IMPLANT? Dental implants make it possible, for example, to remove your old removable dental prostheses. On the other hand, these prostheses fixed in the alveolar bone are also recommended to replace a missing tooth while keeping the neighboring teeth intact, unlike conventional dental bridge techniques. Indeed, the bridge method consists, as its name suggests, of placing a bridge made up of several artificial teeth in order to fill the void left by one or more lost or severely damaged teeth. Made of metal, ceramic or an alloy made up of these two elements, this prosthesis is welded to the teeth adjacent to the hole. With this system, the empty space is therefore filled by a suspended footbridge perfectly imitating the shape and color of a real tooth. The illusion is therefore total. This procedure has the advantage of not having to use the jawbone as the element on which to fix the new tooth. Thus, the gum and bone are preserved and surgical interventions are lighter and less intrusive. In return, the bridgeasks to devitalize two teeth to use them as an abutment. In fact, if the two adjacent teeth are healthy and only one needs to be replaced, it is better to give preference to the dental implant. ADVANTAGES Implant reconstructions are very aesthetic and guarantee you a perfect imitation of natural teeth. In addition, in the case of a removable prosthesis, the implants ensure the stabilization of the tooth, thus offering exceptional comfort for chewing, talking and laughing without being afraid that the device may fall unexpectedly . Placement of implants is not painful and the postoperative effects are very limited. The lifespan of implants is much longer than any other technique, with a success rate of 97%. Reliable, aesthetic, comfortable and painless, dental implants are the ideal treatment for edentulousness. Finally, you can obtain by this technique when it is coupled with the use of “press studs”, an effective stabilization of your prostheses, lavishing you comfort and confidence.
