What is the reason for the late teething of young children?
How many months do young children grow teeth?
Many mothers watch their newborn babies grow up day by day, and the daily changes are very big. Some mothers are beginning to wonder when the baby will start to grow teeth? So next, I will share with you about the baby teething time.
When the baby is just born, there are no teeth in the mouth. Normally, when the baby grows up to 6 months, the teeth will begin to grow. However, because of the special physique of some babies, the teeth will grow when the baby is 4-5 months old or the baby is one year old, so the mother does not have to worry about it.
When the baby is teething, the mandibular central incisor grows first, and then grows at a rate of about one tooth per month. Until the baby is about 2 and a half years old, 20 deciduous teeth will formally grow.
Therefore, if the baby has a systemic or local disorder within one year after birth, it may affect the development of the enamel of the deciduous teeth and make the baby prone to dental caries. Therefore, mothers should pay attention to the care of the baby's teeth during the baby's teething process, so that the baby can grow up healthily.
What is the reason for the late teething of young children
Mothers are always concerned about the growth of their babies, and during the teething stage, Bao mothers see that other children of the same age are growing teeth, and their baby's teeth will not be visible for a long time, so they will inevitably be worried. And because the teeth are part of the human bones, many mothers think that it is a manifestation of calcium deficiency. So what is the reason for the late teething of young children? Let's take a look now.
1. Physical reasons
Teeth are highly calcified substances, and the process of tooth calcification requires more nutrients, including calcium, phosphorus, vitamin D and so on. If one or more of these nutrients are missing, it will affect the baby's teething and tooth development.
2. Calcium deficiency
Since the baby’s teeth will undergo calcification after birth, sufficient calcium is indispensable as the baby grows up. If mothers find that the baby is teething late, accompanied by weak body, poor sleep quality, etc., they need to pay attention to whether it is caused by calcium deficiency.
3. Genetic causes
In some cases, it is due to the lack of corresponding nutrients during the pregnancy of Bao’s mother that the baby’s teething time is late after birth.
