The condition of Polish children's teeth is not optimistic. It is estimated that the average three-year-old already has three bad teeth, six-year-olds, of which only one is treated. Of course, this is just statistics. There are babies without caries, there are those who said goodbye to their milk teeth as 2-year-olds. Why Polish parents don't care about their children's teeth? As usual, the lack of knowledge is to blame, and in this case also myths and fears.

It's the fault of the genes

In ten percent of decay cases, individual conditioning is the culprit. The so-called. weak teeth are a fact, but let's face it - rare. "He has such weak enamel" - we say we have prematurely chipped toddlers, giving them to drink "healthy" flavored water. Unfortunately, eating habits are the main culprit.

It's not sweet!

Polish children eat huge amounts of sweets. The worst are the poor quality lollipops. The problem for the teeth is not only the quality of the food (lots of sugar), but also the frequency. Babies in prams already get snacks to keep them quiet. Then follows the era of eternal snacking. Children eat up to a dozen times a day. Cookie, crisps, candies. We sound the alarm that it is a contribution of increasing obesity, and caries is a bit quieter. The teeth of such small brooders come into contact with food almost constantly, and these are excellent conditions for bacterial growth. Parents are also not aware that drinks are also sweets. Sugar-sweetened pseudo-health mixtures with a friendly teddy bear on the label are enemies of healthy dairy products. A sweet tea or juice is waiting for some kids waking up at night. Let's not fool ourselves, even the strongest glaze will not withstand such treatment!

We care!

Just brushing your teeth is not enough to guard against tooth decay. Sometimes care for hygiene and diet will not protect a child from its occurrence. Appears as a slight discoloration. Here, the care of most Polish parents ends. A small spot that could be controlled with dental treatment turns into a black hole. Untreated caries spreads to other teeth. Why do parents not react?

Dandelions are not cured!

They will fall out soon. This conviction still works. Meanwhile, the treatment of milks affects the condition of permanent teeth. In extreme cases, the buds may be damaged. Besides, spoiled milks hurt!

To the dentist? What for?

The first visit to the dentist should take place ... here dentists do not agree. When the first clove appears, before the age of two - opinions differ. It is important for the adaptation visit to take place before the teeth need help. If a child visits a dentist for the first time crying because of pain, we should not expect them to visit him willingly. Parents' personal experiences (most of us have experienced pain in the dentist's office) are also a deterrent. We transfer our fear and negative attitude to the child.

Don't underestimate

"You can't take your child's childhood" - on limiting sugar in the diet.
"All children have caries. New, healthy teeth will grow ”- about tooth decay.
"Why stress a child with a dentist?" - about "unnecessary" dental checks.
Every moment is good to change habits. The amount of candy eaten does not affect the quality of childhood, toothache - yes. Caries is an infectious bacterial disease that cannot be underestimated. It leads not only to tooth decay, but also to suffering. If we start taking this disease seriously and take care of prevention, there is a good chance of avoiding more serious dental problems.
