What is the order in which children grow their teeth?
There are a total of 20 deciduous teeth of the baby, all of which appear within about 3 years of age. The common teething sequence is:
It is worth noting that some babies will have lateral incisors or deciduous teeth that do not erupt in pairs, so mothers don't need to worry too much!
This is because there are significant individual differences in the eruption time and eruption sequence of deciduous teeth.
The popular saying is that our baby will grind which tooth first, which tooth will erupt first, so mothers don’t have to worry too much~
How to do a good job of cleaning the baby's oral cavity?
Since we talked about baby teething today, it is necessary to talk about how to clean the baby's mouth correctly?
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry has repeatedly emphasized that until the baby is about 6 years old, oral cleaning requires the participation and help of parents.
And if the oral cavity is cleaned in place, the chances of the baby's tooth decay will be greatly reduced. Having a good tooth since I was a child, my baby will look better when I grow up~
So how old is the baby to brush his teeth? How to choose the toothpaste? How much at a time? We have written the corresponding article before, and the mother who forgot to check it directly at the end of the article~
Today, I will share with you 2 methods of brushing teeth for older babies:
Vertical brush method
1. Lightly touch the baby toothbrush bristles to the junction of the red gum and the white tooth surface, and then let the toothbrush bristles form a 45-degree angle with the tooth surface.
2. Brush the lower teeth up along the tooth surface, one tooth surface brush 8~10 times, one tooth one tooth brush.
3. In the same way, the upper teeth should be brushed down along the tooth surface, 8 to 10 times per tooth surface, and one tooth per tooth brush.
Improved version of "Pap Brushing Method"
The modified version of "Pap Brushing Method" is also called horizontal vibrating brushing method. Compared with the "Pap brushing method" (horizontal vibration method), there is one more "brushing" step.
Horizontal shaking is mainly to remove plaque in the neck and gingival sulcus, and brushing is mainly to remove plaque on the tooth surface.
Therefore, the modified version of "Pap Brushing Method" can effectively remove the plaque in the baby's gingival sulcus and also clean the plaque on the tooth surface.
1. First touch the toothbrush bristles to the interface between the teeth and the gums at an angle of 45 degrees. The upper bristles are flushed up, and the lower bristles are flushed down; with moderate force, gently press the teeth.
2.2～3 teeth are in a group, and they vibrate slightly at the level (note that there is a skimming action at the end).
3. The tooth facing inward is more difficult to brush. You can use the toothbrush upright to brush.
4. There are many grooves on the occlusal surface of teeth, which is easier to contain dirt. When brushing, the toothbrush is perpendicular to the surface of the tooth and it vibrates slightly.
Precautions for baby teething
If the baby has teeth at birth (growth teeth) or grows teeth (newborn teeth) within 30 days after birth, it is called early eruption of deciduous teeth. Premature teeth are more common in the lower central incisor.
It is worthy of the mother's attention: the baby may be swallowed by the baby if the baby's teeth loosen and fall off!
Therefore, if the baby is found to have loose premature teeth, the mother must take the baby to the dentistry department as soon as possible to remove the premature teeth.
If the baby's premature teeth are not loose, but its edges are relatively sharp, and the baby's tongue frenulum is relatively short, it is easy to cause inflammation and ulcers in the baby's tongue frenulum.
Therefore, mothers should also take the baby to the dentistry department to round and blunt the edges of the baby's premature teeth.
