Pregnancy and baby teeth

The foetus begins to develop teeth at just six weeks, which is probably around the time that you discover that you are pregnant. Prevention and treatment of gum disease can reduce the chances of having your baby prematurely by up to 80%. When taking your child to the dentist for the first time, make sure that you do not talk about the appointment too much beforehand and avoid using negative terms such as pain when discussing it.
Teach your children to brush their teeth on their own as early as possible, but always check after they have finished to make sure that they have not missed any areas. When brushing their teeth, always guide their hand to demonstrate and brush for two minutes daily. At this age, diet becomes really important so try to give your child foods that do not stick to their teeth, as milk teeth are more vulnerable to decay. Upgrade to a pea-sized amount of fluoride toothpaste when brushing, and use a toothpaste that has 1359 to 1500 ppm of fluoride. It is important that a child does not breathe through their mouth, as it is bad for tooth development and can be linked to ear problems. Teach your child to floss as soon as teeth are closely touching, especially if there is crowding.
Reinforce the two minute timer for brushing so that they spend enough time to cover all of their teeth. When the adult teeth have erupted, it is a good idea to take an x-ray to check that they are healthy. Straight teeth are less susceptible to plaque so if teeth are crooked it is important to seek orthodontic advice. If you child has braces it is important to supervise the brushing, as it can be tricky keeping the teeth clean between wires and brackets. Teeth grinding, or bruxism, is a problem among approximately 10% of adults and is a subconscious activity that generally occurs during sleep.
During pregnancy, a woman’s hormone levels rise and gingivitis (inflammation of gums) is common.
Tooth cavity causing bacteria can be transmitted to the fetus, so it is important to reduce plaque (tartar) and have teeth free of decay before the birth of a child.


If you are pregnant, be sure to visit your dentist regularly and have your teeth cleaned more often. There comes a time when the baby teeth of your child fall out and are replaced with permanent teeth. Baby teeth have several purposes, including eating.They also occupy their space until the permanent teeth start to grow underneath. Your child’s deciduous teeth, otherwise known as their baby teeth, usually grow completely around the age of three, twenty of which in total. A change in teething patterns usually indicates the presence of a disease or a disruption that has not shown its face yet.
The eruption of the molar teeth causes teething pain that can often radiate to your child’s jaw or ear. When the time for the eruption of permanent teeth approaches, your child may adopt an oral exterior that is similar to a beaver. Permanent teeth consist of three sets of molars, the last of which will erupt when your child is in their teenage years. If you provide your baby with a dummy, limit the use to the maximum of 1 hour a day and wean your child off by the age of 1.
Your dentist should look for the signs of plaque, and if found you can address this before it becomes a problem.
Serious gum disease in the mother has been linked to low birth-weight babies and premature births. The time around which all the baby teeth start to fall is more or less the same, except for a few exceptions.
When it is time for the permanent teeth to appear, the root of the deciduous teeth is dissolved to make room for the permanent teeth. Information regarding the growth and development of your child’s primary teeth can help you stay on track with their intra-oral changes. The best remedy is to encourage your child to use ice-cold water and lots of fruit-popsicles as a treat.
The adequate technique for brushing teeth would help remove plaque and food debris from your child’s mouthas well as freshen the breath and massage gums at the same time.


Starchy substances and sugary food can lead to the incorporation of bacteria in your mouth even if you brush regularly. Crowns of the baby teeth are developing and chewing surfaces of the permanent molars are beginning to form during pregnancy.
The maxillary (top) incisors, which are typically the center teeth, follow the lower incisors. If your child’s primary teeth are still intact after the age of eight years old, consult your dentist. The eruption of permanent teeth can take longer than expected, but this is very common and completely harmless.
Fluoride enhances the strength of your baby’s teeth while preventing the formation of cavities in his mouth. Sealants may need to be coated again during adolescence, but they are cost-effective and prove a 90 percent decreased chance of your child acquiring caries. Children should also be told about certain drinks that can stain their teethas well as the damage that sodas can create. A balanced diet and use of prenatal vitamins help to develop healthy teeth, while poor nutrition can be associated with tooth decay. If your child’s baby teeth start to fall out before he or she is four, it would be helpful to consult your dentist to make sure that the process is smooth and natural. While you can encourage your child to gently aid the tooth in falling out more rapidly, avoid letting them pull teeth out under any circumstances.
This creates a situation where your child may have two rows of teeth, but this is only temporary, so there is no need to worry.
In some cases, baby teeth can fall out but the permanent tooth may not be ready to grow in its place.
