What causes children's caries?
- Bad home hygiene of the oral cavity. The main reason for the formation of caries is plaque. He appears on his teeth already six hours after the child brushed his teeth. Often children brush their teeth insufficiently carefully or incorrectly. In Medissa conduct oral hygiene lessons for children and parents, where they teach how to properly brush their teeth, how to choose a toothbrush and toothpaste.
- Drinking sweet drinks at night. The so-called "bottle caries". The habit of the child to fall asleep with a bottle in the mouth leads to tooth decay. Sweet drink contains glucose, which is food for bacteria. Doctors of Medissa recommend rinsing your mouth with usual drinking water after each intake of sweet drink (compotes, juices, milk, mixtures) to avoid such consequences as "bottle caries".
