Talk about the baby's long teeth

The teeth are dripping and ticking, and the baby can’t speak, and he feels tired at home!

What if the baby is addicted to eating? Will it cause buck teeth? Will it affect facial development? How can I do? Baby's teeth gap is too ugly?

Come here, let's gather here. In this issue, we will talk about the baby's long teeth and see what a perfect pregnant woman can do for you.

One: About baby teething period

There are many discomforts in infant teething, mainly in the following situations:

1. Many saliva

The eruption of the first tooth stimulates the gingival nerve, which causes increased salivary gland secretion. Some babies' skin around their mouths is constantly soaked in saliva, and may develop rashes or even rough chapped.

Care: You can prepare a soft cotton cloth and wipe off the saliva with a soft towel dipped in warm water. Be sure to move gently when rubbing to avoid scratching the skin and causing infection. You can apply petroleum jelly or olive oil around your child's mouth for isolation and protection.

2. Gum discomfort

When teeth erupt, they cause irritation to the gingival nerves, and the baby's gums will be a little uncomfortable, such as itchy gums, gum pain, etc. Some babies even bite their little hands, bite their mother's nipples, and even bite the fingers of strangers. Because biting hard can release the pressure inside the gums, making him feel more comfortable.

Care: Gently wipe the baby's gums with gauze dipped in cold water. Or give your child toothpaste, pacifier, etc.

3. Irritability

When the deciduous teeth slowly push out the gums, the pain may increase, and the baby will show symptoms such as crying and restlessness.

Nursing: Give your child gums or pacifiers, distract them, and usually calm down.

4. Poor appetite

Babies with long teeth often become restless when feeding. He may be anxious to suck up milk because he wants to stuff something into his mouth, but once he starts sucking milk, he will cause pain in the gums due to the sucking action, which will make the baby refuse food.

Care: Because the gums are swollen and sore, give your baby some cool food. The baby who eats a bottle can properly adjust the nipple hole, which is easy to drink without choking the milk. It is really unwilling to suck, and you can use a cup or spoon instead.

5. Diarrhea

Some babies will have diarrhea when teething. When the baby's stool frequency increases, but the water is not enough, you should temporarily stop adding new supplementary food to the baby, mainly porridge, thin, rotten noodles and other digestible foods, and pay attention to the disinfection of tableware; if the frequency is more than 10 times a day, and When there is much water, you should consult a doctor in time.

Care: Let your baby drink more water. Clean the mouth every time after feeding. Clean every morning and evening must be very careful, especially the one before bedtime at night.

6. Sleep may be affected

The situation in which teething affects sleep is most likely to occur when the first teeth and molars are sprouting. The pain will make the baby wake up suddenly at night. Do not rush to coax or feed him at this time to see if he can settle down.

Nursing: This situation will not last long, please be patient and use the above methods to comfort your baby as much as possible.

7. fever

Fever during the teething period of the baby is usually because the baby's gums are itchy during the teething period, so he likes to bite things and rub the gums (the gums will be red and swollen and easy to break during the teething period), and the baby's immunity is weak, so it is easy to be affected by oral bacteria. Infection and inflammation of the oral mucosa, eventually leading to fever. And this infection generally does not affect much, so it is usually low fever, generally below 38 ℃, and the duration is also short.

If your baby has a fever during the period of long teeth, as long as the body temperature does not exceed 38°C, and the spirit is good, and the appetite is strong, no special treatment is required. Give the baby more warm water.

Two: About the baby often eats hands

The baby eats hands (or uses a pacifier), which can play a soothing role for the newborn baby, and is conducive to the development of the baby's nerve function.

But if the baby still keeps the habit of wailing after 3 years old, it is a matter of doing more harm than good.

First of all, it is easy to be infected with bacteria; secondly, frequent hand slaps will affect the development of the baby's teeth jaws, produce buck teeth, malocclusion and other problems, have an impact on the baby's face development; also, the hand will also hurt the fingers.

If the baby eats fingers for a long time, it will also affect the normal development of their finger bones, and there may be finger deformities.

How to correct it is as follows:

First of all, check whether you give the child a certain amount of care and consideration, so that the child can get a sense of security from your love: instead of being rough and stiff, it will cause the child to feel fear. This approach can only strengthen this bad The role of habit;

Secondly, you can use the method of transferring interest and diluting hands, so that the formed bad habits are gradually reduced and subsided;

Finally, take more children to play, let them gain knowledge in the colorful world, increase their knowledge, and gradually forget the original bad habits.

Three: About baby teeth gap is too large

1. Is there any gap in baby's teeth?

normal. Baby's deciduous teeth are not arranged as closely as adult teeth, but there are some gaps; some babies have gaps when the deciduous teeth erupt.

Some babies have gaps gradually after the deciduous teeth sprout with the development of the jaws; some children have gaps in the upper incisor teeth due to the wide bandwidth of the upper lip system, and they will gradually close together as the children's deciduous teeth grow.

2. What is the role of the gap between baby's deciduous teeth?

Because the permanent teeth of the replacement deciduous teeth are often larger than the deciduous teeth, the gap between the deciduous teeth gives room for the enlarged permanent teeth to grow after replacement, which is conducive to the neat arrangement of the replacement permanent teeth in the future.

If there are no gaps between the baby's deciduous teeth, the permanent teeth are likely to become "crowded" or "staggered" due to insufficient position, and may not even erupt normally.

Therefore, the baby's "ugly" teeth are now prepared for the neat teeth in the future.

3. Abnormal conditions will cause the tooth gap to be too wide

In addition to the normal state of deciduous teeth, there will also be some abnormal conditions that cause the deciduous teeth to have wider teeth.

For example, after the deciduous teeth have caries and the foreign teeth have been removed, the teeth that are not tight are wider.

When this happens, it is easy to cause dental caries. Parents and mothers need to pay more attention to the baby's oral hygiene.

4. Will the gap between deciduous teeth be good?

The large gap between deciduous teeth generally occurs when the baby is relatively small, when the teeth erupt less, and when the teeth grow longer, the gap between the teeth will tend to become smaller. If the baby still has gaps after changing teeth, you need to find a stomatologist.

The deciduous teeth have a problem of interdental space, don't panic, wait for the deciduous teeth to grow, fall off, and permanent teeth grow out; under normal circumstances, the problem of interdental teeth will be solved. However, if the deciduous teeth have abnormal conditions such as caries and foreign teeth, the permanent teeth will often grow out of alignment, and they need to be treated in the stomatology department.
