A Wiggly Baby Tooth- Why It’s Important

baby-teeth-care-mississauga
Fall of the first baby tooth is a milestone in itself. When your little one comes running to you with a fallen baby tooth, you just can’t help smiling. Because you know it paves way for strong, permanent teeth. Baby teeth start to fall around the age of 5 or 6. The lower front incisors are the first to give up. However, there are certain things that have to be taken care of to ensure seamless teething. AIMS Dentistry, the leading providers of Baby Teeth Care in Mississauga, educate parents about the precautions that need to be taken so your children get a healthy set of permanent teeth.  
    • Make sure baby teeth fall in time.
Ever heard of shark teeth? It refers to a couple of permanent lower incisors that appear right behind the baby incisors that haven’t fallen off in time. Technical name for this condition is lingually erupting mandibular incisors. Shark teeth are more common than you think. When the roots of baby incisors fail to dissolve, permanent teeth erupt from behind them.
    • Problems caused due to shark teeth
In the absence of proper dental care and if this condition fails to resolve on its own, one is stuck with shark teeth for life. It not only affects the proper natural alignment of teeth but in the long term can produce speech related problems and can manifest tooth decay. Children with shark teeth have to work more on their speech. Moreover, a difficult to reach area is created between the two rows that creates possibilities for plaque deposition. That’s an invitation for dental caries and gingivitis. Moreover, improper alignment of teeth mars one’s confidence to smile and laugh openly. As the permanent teeth push the baby teeth forward, the upper incisors are not able to properly lock with the lower row, causing inconvenience and trouble in mastication.
    • What’s the solution?
It’s important to closely monitor your children’s baby teeth, especially around time when they start to fall. Encourage your kid to mildly push the lower baby incisors back and forth with clean fingers. Hard and crunchy foods such as apple should be preferred to make baby teeth wiggle and fall. At times, as the shark teeth begin to appear, nature does the work on its own, by pushing the baby teeth out of the socket. But if nothing works, and you see that baby incisors are not falling anytime sooner, consult the pediatric dentists in your town, like the best pediatric dental care providers at AIMS Dentistry, Mississauga.
