Early Childhood caries
Early Childhood Caries, often referred to as baby bottle tooth decay or nursing caries, is a prevalent dental condition among infants and young children. ECC occurs when the teeth of a child are in contact with sugary liquids, such as milk, formula, fruit juices, or sweetened beverages, for prolonged periods. Bacteria in the mouth feed on these sugars, leading to the formation of acids that erode tooth enamel and cause cavities. Prevention is the key to avoiding ECC and ensuring your child’s oral health remains on track. At Meera Hospital, we believe that education and early intervention play a crucial role in keeping ECC at bay.
Why decay occur ?
At Meera Hospital, we believe that every child deserves a healthy and happy smile. Inadequate brushing and flossing can lead to the buildup of plaque and bacteria on the teeth. This can eventually result in the demineralization of the tooth enamel, leading to cavities. A diet high in sugary snacks, beverages, and processed foods can create an environment conducive to tooth decay. Sugars feed the harmful bacteria in the mouth, which produce acids that erode the tooth enamel. Putting a child to bed with a bottle of milk, formula, or juice can expose their teeth to prolonged periods of sugar exposure.
What are the treatment available?
Childhood tooth decay, also known as pediatric dental caries or cavities, is a common oral health concern that affects young children. It occurs when bacteria in the mouth produce acids that erode the enamel and dentin of the teeth, leading to cavities. Here are some effective treatment options available for childhood tooth decay:
- Dental Fillings
