How Does Thumb Sucking Affect Your Child's Teeth?

Sucking can be of nutritive value, self-soothing, and a pleasurable oral reflex. Soon after birth, the child has a reflexive behavior for sucking. Anything kept in the mouth will be sucked. Usually, this reflex will go by 4 months of age. If it persists beyond this age it becomes a habit that can pose some orthodontic problems to the teeth.
Aetiology of Thumb Sucking:

1.Loneliness: If the child feels left out and is not getting enough attention then the child may resort to digit-sucking 2.Hunger satisfaction: If the child remains not completely fed then he/she fulfills his hunger by sucking his digits 3.Sense of Insecurity: The child derives a sense of comfort and security by sucking his digits
Digit sucking habit in the early years is acceptable. The child usually should be off the habit by the time the permanent dentition starts to be seen. So thumb sucking up to the age of 5-6 yrs is acceptable. If the habit persists beyond this time it could have deleterious effects on the dentition…

5 things that can be magical in a good oral health

1.Brush Brushing your teeth twice a day is a must. Brushing in the morning takes out the dental plaque formed all night, gives a good breath, makes you feel fresh and energized to start a new day. While brushing your teeth at night takes out all the food debris that could be on your teeth and helps prevent cavities from developing. 
2.Floss  Flossing your teeth once a day at night is a good habit. Tooth brush cannot reach areas between the teeth. If you do not have tight contacts between the teeth, food could get stuck between teeth. When you leave the food debris between teeth uncleaned they colonize bacteria and cause decay between teeth. Cavities between teeth can be unseen for a long time and may only be noticed by the patient at a later date.
3.Rinse Rinsing your mouth after every meal or eating something is always a good practice. When we rinse our mouth we take out the food particles sticking to our teeth. This in turn helps maintain the teeth in a good condition. 4.Water Nothi…

Do your teeth feel sensitive to hot cold or sweet food???

Why does someone develop sensitivity??

There could be two reasons for sensitivity to develop1.The outer most covering of the tooth is called Enamel. Enamel is the hardest part of the human body, harder than bone. It is impervious to oral fluids. But when enamel wears off it exposes dentin (erosion) which has tubules in it and conducts the temperature in the mouth on to the nerves in the pulp. This cases sensitivity.
2.Sometimes root surface may be exposed in people (due to various reasons like faulty brushing, drinking soda etc.,) and the rootis covered by cementum not enamel and may be the reason for sensitivity.

Causes for erosion:
1.Faulty brushing habits
2.Night grinding
3.Acidic diet
4.Soda
5.Gastric acidity with lot of belching
6.Excessive tooth whitening procedures
7.Bulimia etc.,

Treatment: 1.The dentisthas to identify if there is a cavity
If yes : it needs to be filled
2.If No: then your dentist may recommend some desensitizing tooth pastes to be used and may be some fluoride var…
