How can I be 80 years old and have a good tooth? Just follow this schedule

It is always when toothache is killing me that I think of how important oral health is.

Not to mention how many people bleed as soon as they brush their teeth and plug their teeth as soon as they eat, but they never turn a blind eye…

Although stomatologists have said it hundreds of times, Dr. Clove still needs to repeat it: to be in good health, oral health is indispensable!

It is no exaggeration to say that a person has noteworthy tooth-loving tips throughout his life from the womb to the grave.

Today, Dr. Clove will arrange a [tooth protection schedule] for everyone. As long as you do it, you can have a good tooth!

In the uterus: Pregnant mothers should ensure nutrition and use drugs carefully.

Yes, before the baby was born, the oral cavity and teeth actually began to develop, so the protection of teeth should be started from the pregnant mother.

The most important thing is that in the first two months of pregnancy, the fetus develops from the fertilized egg to the initial human form, which is easily affected by genetic variation and foreign harmful factors. Severe stimulation may even lead to abortion, and lighter ones may also cause congenital malformation of the fetus (such as lip, cleft palate, etc.).

From the beginning of pregnancy to the birth of the baby, if the pregnant mother lacks calcium, phosphorus, vitamins and misuses tetracycline antibiotics, it may affect the normal development of the baby’s teeth in the future.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Ensure nutrition. Try to have a balanced diet to ensure sufficient nutrition.

  2. Use medicine carefully. If you need to take medicine, take it under the guidance of a doctor.

Infancy: Pay attention to observation and help the baby clean well.

Although the newborn baby has no teeth, it doesn’t mean that oral hygiene can be neglected. It is also necessary to clean it well.

In addition, attention should also be paid to the baby’s oral mucosa. For example, some babies have low immunity and will be infected with candida and suffer from thrush. At this time, there will be white spots in the oral cavity. If they can be found and treated in time, they will not have too much impact on the baby.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Help your baby clean up your mouth. Before going to bed every day, parents dip soft gauze in a little clear water or light saline to clean your baby’s mouth, and learn to observe whether oral mucosa is normal.

  2. Brush your baby’s teeth. 6 ~ 12 months after birth, most babies will erupt their first tooth (), and then parents will start to brush their teeth.

  3. Insist on brushing your teeth and teach your baby to brush by himself. In the next 2-3 years, the baby will have all his teeth. Parents should also insist on helping the baby brush his teeth until the baby learns it by himself.

Early Childhood: Develop Good Habits and Protect Deciduous Teeth

Children after the age of 3 will grow their deciduous teeth, but the calcification degree of deciduous teeth is less than that of permanent teeth, which is not as strong as permanent teeth. In addition, children like to eat sugar and do not like to brush their teeth and gargle after eating, so deciduous teeth are easy to become cavities.

Don’t think that there will be permanent teeth instead of deciduous teeth in the future, so deciduous teeth are not important. If deciduous teeth are broken, the baby will not eat fragrant, nutrition absorption will not affect development, and serious deciduous tooth diseases will also hinder permanent teeth in the future.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Control sweets and learn to brush your teeth. Parents should guide children to eat less sugar and help them form a good habit of brushing their teeth.

  2. Regular examination. Starting from the first tooth, it is recommended to have an oral examination every year. If some minor problems are found early, the therapeutic effect will be better and the baby can grow up healthily.

  3. Fluoride coating on deciduous teeth. Prevention is always more important than treatment. When children can cooperate with doctors, don’t forget to take them to have their teeth coated with fluoride to prevent tooth decay.

School age: Regular visits to dentists to protect permanent teeth

From the eruption of [the first permanent molar] (the sixth-year-old tooth) at the age of 6 to the age of 12, deciduous teeth are gradually replaced by permanent teeth. It is important to know that permanent teeth will last for a lifetime, so their health is more important.

Pit and fissure sealing is a good way to protect the newly erupted permanent teeth, especially the first erupted [six-year-old teeth], which requires pit and fissure sealing. Because many children who do not pay attention to oral hygiene, this tooth is the first to be killed.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Pit and fissure sealing. It is usually done when the child is 6 years old.

  2. Learn how to brush your teeth correctly. Teach your children how to brush their teeth and floss correctly.

  3. See the dentist regularly. Don’t forget to check your mouth during the physical examination.

Grow up: brush your teeth carefully and look at your teeth regularly.

Insisting on brushing your teeth in the morning and evening, flossing and gargling can maintain oral hygiene well, but some people still suffer from toothache and gum bleeding, which are the most common oral problems.

Toothache is often caused by tooth decay or pulpitis. If tooth decay is found earlier and shallower, the damaged part of the tooth can be worn off and then repaired. If the tooth decay is very deep, root canal therapy is required.

Bleeding from brushing teeth and loosening teeth are mostly caused by periodontitis, and smoking may aggravate periodontitis, so quitting smoking and forming the habit of washing teeth every year can effectively prevent and is also the most economical way.

Inflammation often occurs around wisdom teeth? Then it depends on whether this wisdom tooth is likely to erupt smoothly. If some wisdom teeth grow crooked, they must not hesitate to pull them out, otherwise there will be endless troubles.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Insist on brushing your teeth in the morning and evening and gargling after meals.

  2. If you have any dental problems, see the dentist in time.

  3. Quit smoking and take the money saved to wash your teeth once a year.

Middle-aged and Elderly: Actively Treat Various Diseases

Every dentist has a small goal, that is, [80, 20], which means that people can still retain more than 20 teeth at the age of 80 and maintain the most basic functions of the oral cavity.

However, for ordinary people, this is a big wish, because most people are [old] by the age of 80.

Although there is still a long way to go, there are still ways to achieve it. The key lies in seeing the dentist in time.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Disease treatment, no disease to prevent disease. Many middle-aged and elderly people have periodontitis, and periodontal disease is related to many systemic diseases, especially diabetes. Therefore, on the one hand, we should actively treat periodontitis, on the other hand, we should persist in treating other diseases.

  2. Pull out too loose teeth and wear dentures. If it is a movable dentures, don’t forget to take them off and clean them before going to bed every day. If it is a fixed denture, it must take care of every corner like brushing real teeth.

  3. Regular visits to dentists to check oral mucosa. Pay attention to the health of oral mucosa and be vigilant against oral ulcers and oral masses that have not healed.

Pregnant women: See a dentist before pregnancy and brush your teeth during pregnancy.

Pregnant women not only bear the responsibility of protecting the oral health of their babies in their stomachs, but also the dental health of pregnant women themselves is equally important.

What should be done at this stage is:

  1. Wash your teeth before pregnancy to ensure periodontal health.

  2. Make up all decayed teeth. If there are long and crooked wisdom teeth, they can be pulled out to avoid repeated swelling and pain after pregnancy.

  3. Brushing teeth, gargling, cleaning work to do a good job. Pregnant mother’s diet is often not as regular as ordinary people’s. Sometimes she will eat many meals a day, and she will also like sweet and sour things more. Therefore, she should pay more attention to brushing her teeth in the morning and evening, and must rinse her mouth after eating something.

According to this [tooth protection schedule] to maintain, whether you are born or old, stick to it, 80 years old will not be [old]!
