All parents would probably want to save their children from these pains.


Even if baby teeth fall out and get replaced later on by big, strong teeth, children learn with them how they have to clean them thoroughly. An Australian dentist has now revealed that over 1000 children in the Australian state of Victoria had to have their baby teeth pulled because they were rotted.

There are also many children in New Zealand between the ages of 2 to 3 years old, whose teeth are irreparably damaged.



A 3 year old boy had to have 11 teeth pulled in March because they were too damaged.

Usually dentists try to avoid pulling teeth from small children. Fillings usually help.



But in these cases it was just too late. At a young age, many little patients bite and scream during treatment so much so that only a full narcosis can help.



For these children, pulling teeth is a painful and traumatic operation. The cornerstone for a lifelong fear of the dentist is laid here.




Often ignorant parents are to blame for this. They give their children Coca Cola or other soft drinks as babies in their feeding bottles. Since tooth care is often less thorough than with adults, cavities have a good chance of developing.



Cavities are caused by bacteria in the mouth, which attack the surface of teeth and destroy the tooth enamel.



Sugar encourages the growth of these bacteria. Juices can also damage teeth in the long run if they are not cleaned thoroughly enough afterward.



Many parents also give their children honey in their milk. Many parents forget that fruit juice, sodas and even sugar-free drinks have a negative effect on the teeth, primarily without a good mouth hygiene.

The dentist advises parents to watch children while they brush their teeth and go to the dentist with them when the smallest change occurs in the teeth.





So, go regularly with your children to the dentist. Usually you should do this two times a year but when the teeth begin to change visibly or your children have pains, you should definitely make an appointment! This way you can save your children from the typical fear of the tooth-pulling doctor.
