  • What does tooth decay in children signify?

Tooth decay is the process of breakdown of the tooth enamel that forms the outer tooth surface. Destruction of this outer layer leads to cavities and thus damage oral health. 

  • How does tooth decay occur in children?

The most common causes of tooth decay include the ill effects of consuming foods containing carbohydrates. When such food particles are left on the teeth, bacteria start to develop and these gradually feed on the carbohydrate-rich food particles and produce acids. This results in plaque formation which sticks to the teeth. The acids produced by bacteria attack the outer layer of teeth and eat away the same thus resulting in cavities.     

  • Why children are vulnerable to tooth decays?      

Children of all ages have a risk of tooth damage. They all have bacteria in their mouth. This makes children be among the lot most vulnerable to tooth decay. 

High risks of tooth damage occur to children with -          

  • Comparatively high bacteria levels that cause cavities  
  • Poor oral hygiene          
  • Consumption of high sugar and starch diets     
  • Lower Fluoride content in water     
  • The reduced flow of saliva   
  • What symptoms indicate tooth decay in children?   

Bacteria attack and formation of cavities that indicate tooth decay follows a common path in most children. 

  • In the initial stages, the occurrence of white spots on the teeth in affected areas indicates enamel damage. At this stage, children might experience slight sensitivity.   
  • A light brown colored cavity starts to appear on the teeth.   
  • Gradually the cavity begins to deepen and its shades turn into dark brown.     

Every child experiences varying symptoms and in some cases, there occur no symptoms at all. When the cavity starts to develop, the following is to be felt -     

  • Varying levels of pain in the areas around the tooth   
  • Sensitivity from several food types, hot and cold beverages as well   

  • Diagnosing tooth decay in a child!

A children’s dentist can help identify the dental troubles in a child and also provides a necessary remedy to help alleviate the same. Regular visits to the dentist are a must to follow so that you are aware of your kid’s state of dental health.
