 HOW DO I KNOW MY CHILD IS HAVING A CAVITY?
 
Cavity is a hole or discolored surface in the form of yellow, brown Or black colour. It is a mixture of decayed food particles and bacteria, accumulated for days & weeks & months inside that hole.

 DOES CAVITY OCCUR IN THE MILK TOOTH ALSO? HOW?
 
Yes!!
If the child does not have the habit of brushing in the night.

Eating biscuits and drinking milk just before sleeping. Brushing should be the last thing before sleeping.

 DOSE THE CAVITY IN MY CHILD’S MOUTH AFFECT MY CHILD’S GENERAL HEALTH?
 
Yes!! Cavity is an accumulation of decayed food particles mixed with bacteria. You may give your child the best clean food & sterilized Mineral water but when your child eats/drinks, the food & water in the mouth mixes with those bacterias & enter into the stomach. So your clean food & water becomes more unhygienic than the tap water & therefore your child maybe having pain, or throat infection or stomach problems all the time.

 IS IT NECESSARY TO FILL UP CAVITIES IN MILK TEETH ALSO, EVEN THOUGH THEY ARE GOING TO FALL-OFF?
 
All cavities from milk teeth if not filled up on time, extends Deep to the underlying permanent tooth and the permanent tooth may come up decayed and cause lifetime dental trouble for your child. This can be avoided only by getting all decayed milk teeth filled up regularly on time, and regular dental check-ups.

 HOW TO PREVENT CAVITIES IN MY CHILD’S TEETH?
 
Reduce chocolates and sticky food substances & brush after it Immediately. Night brushing habit compulsory in proper vertical direction only. Regular friendly dental visits with your child every 6 months which motivates the child to take care of his teeth. No eating biscuits or wafers or drinking milk just before going to bed.

 MY CHILD’S FRONT TEETH ARE DECAYED. WHAT SHOULD I DO FOR IT?
 
Take your child to a good pedodontist (Child Teeth Specialist) who can treat these decayed teeth by filling or by Root Canals. Do not extract (remove) the front teeth before taking a second opinion Of another good dentist. If not treated child develops Inferiority complex & may become a dull child or may have lifetime cavity problems in his permanent teeth or may require Braces Treatment in future.

 MY CHILD ALWAYS COMPLAINS OF PAIN DURING EATING? WHY? WHAT SHOULD I DO?
 
Pain during eating may be because of cavity in his teeth (superficial or deep) which should either be filled up or Root Canalled. As far as possible avoid extraction and avoid subsiding the pain by pain killer tablets or by antibiotics.

 SHOULD I GIVE COLD DRINKS AND CHOCOLATES TO MY CHILD? IF NOT WHY?
 
Do not give cold-drinks and chocolates to the child as far as possible. If by chance given sometimes, make sure the child brushes within two hours or else child may start developing a cavity in one of the tooth that night.

 SHOULD MY CHILD BRUSH ONCE OR TWICE? WHY?
 
Twice.
Night brushing is important for dental health and Morning brushing is important for full day mouth freshness. If night brushing is not done, child is sure to get cavities as bacteria enters in our mouth mostly during night time and causes cavities.

 I GIVE MY CHILD ONE FULL GLASS OF MILK BEFORE GOING TO BED.IS IT GOOD OR BAD?
 
Bad! Milk should not be given just before going to bed, but half an hour before going to bed. Brushing is compulsory after milk, as milk is glucose which is a form of sugar which causes cavity if left on the tooth over night.
