Bottle-feeding ‘could cause emergency dentistry’


Long periods with a bottle could mean babies need emergency dentistry. Bottle-feeding babies for long periods of time could lead to them needing emergency dentistry later in life, one expert has warned.

Associate Professor Richard Widmer from the Children's Hospital in Sydney said he is seeing more cases of tooth decay than ever at present because parents are allowing infants to go to sleep with bottles in their mouths.

Explaining that the decay usually occurs on the backs of the front teeth, he added: "Some of the littlies are in pain. It is difficult some days."

Dr Anne Stewart from the Australian Dental Association said parents do not have to get rid of bottles altogether, but recommended that they should provide the baby with its milk and then remove the container to prevent a pool of liquid remaining in the mouth.

Last month, Health Day said in an article for US News and World Report that it is a good idea to wipe down a baby's gums with a gauze pad before any teeth emerge, as this will keep the mouth bacteria-free.

Parents ‘do not pay enough attention’ to emergency dentistry prevention in children


Emergency dentistry prevention should be started as early as possible.   Some parents do not pay enough attention to emergency dentistry prevention for their children, one expert has warned.

Speaking to Ahram Online, Dr Osama El Shahawy said that because baby teeth are not permanent, many people do not think they need to be looked after as carefully as adult teeth.

However, he pointed out that milk teeth are actually essential for "helping kids learn to chew, speak clearly, and smile with confidence and for ensuring that their permanent teeth come in properly".

Dr Shahawy recommended taking little ones to a dentist by their first birthday, using appropriate toothpaste for their age and teaching them proper brushing techniques in order to prevent decay.

Toothbrushes for children should have soft, rounded bristles and should be moved in circular strokes to reach all surfaces of the teeth.

A recent article by Health Day in US News and World Report recommended wiping down a baby's gums with a gauze pad to clean them before teeth emerge.

Taking some easy steps could prevent emergency dentistry in children.Parents keen to prevent emergency dentistry in their children in future should ensure they start looking after emerging teeth as early as possible.

In an article for US News and World Report, Health Day pointed out that the recommendations are clear from organisations such as the American Dental Association when it comes to brushing.

It said mums and dads should wipe down their baby's gums as often as possible before teeth emerge using a small gauze pad.

Once they do begin to show, the baby teeth should be cleaned using a special brush for youngsters but no toothpaste.

This should only be introduced once the toddler reaches two years of age, Health Day explained.

In order to prevent emergency dentistry as a result of erosion, parents should not allow children to go to bed with a bottle, it added.

Miriam Stoppard recently warned there is no excuse for poor oral healthcare among children and said parents need to look after milk teeth just as they would their own.

Emergency dentistry prevention ‘could also halt halitosis’


Simple emergency dentistry prevention could be enough to halt halitosis.Carrying out a proper emergency dentistry prevention regime could also stop halitosis in its tracks.

This is the medical name for bad breath and Health Day said in an article for Business Week that it can be caused by a number of things, including medical problems and not eating regularly enough.

However, it is also caused by rotting food particles that get trapped between the teeth, so taking action to avoid emergency dentistry could also remove this hazard.

Health Day recommended brushing and flossing every day, but advised seeking the advice of a medical professional if it is thought the issue could be a symptom of something more serious.

The British Dental Health Foundation sates it is important to brush the teeth and gums for two minutes twice a day using fluoride toothpaste.

It is also wise to brush the tongue to prevent bad breath, as it can harbour bacteria.

My West Texas reported February is National Children’s Dental Health Month in the US and as a result, parents are being advised to ensure their children do not eat so many sweets and to ensure they get regular check-ups with a dental professional.

“The key is they can take in sugar, they just need to brush their teeth to get it off … before everything starts destroying the teeth,” commented director of public relations and marketing at Casa de Amigos Fran Billingsley.

Elsewhere, parents who give their babies sweet drinks in a bottle have been advised on a number of ways to help reduce the likelihood that they will develop tooth decay.

Health Day noted children should not be allowed to take drinks to bed with them and they should ensure they use fluoridated toothpaste to help strengthen tooth enamel.

According to Health Day, babies’ gums should be wiped with an absorbent pad after feeding, while as soon as the first tooth breaks, it should be brushed regularly and when the child has all their teeth through, they should start using floss.

In addition, children should not be allowed to take drinks to bed with them and they should ensure they use a fluoridated toothpaste to help strengthen tooth enamel.

Elsewhere, Cosmetic Dentistry Guide recently reported George Armelagos, an anthropologist from Emory University in Atlanta, has claimed defects which can develop in the tooth enamel while in the womb or during a child’s first few years could provide a link to premature death.

Therefore, it is important for parents to schedule a check-up for their children as soon as possible after they are born.
