How to Prevent Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

Prevenirea cariei de biberon

Every year thousands of infants and young children suffer from extensive tooth decay. Surprisingly, the major culprits are milk and other liquids from the baby's bottle.

In fiecare an mii de copii sufera de carii extinse ale dintilor. Surprinzator, marii vinovati sunt laptele si lichidele dulci administrate cu biberonul.

Bacteria - Your Baby's Enemies

Just like an adult's mouth, a baby's mouth is full of bacteria. These bacteria feed on sugars found in the liquids we drink and in the foods we eat. Ungrateful hosts, these bacteria produce acid as a by-product of their feasting. It is this acid which attacks the tooth enamel and causes cavities.

La fel ca si la adulti, gura copilului este plina de bacterii. Aceste bacterii se hranesc cu zaharul si lichidele pe care le bem si mancam. Aceste bacterii produc acizi care ataca smaltul dentar si produc carii.
Many parents put their children to sleep with a bottle. They often find that this helps the baby settle down. Unfortunately, studies show that babies fall asleep with the baby bottle nipples in their mouths, allowing fluid from the bottle to pool around teeth.

Multi parinti isi lasa copilul sa adoarma cu biberonul in gura(pentru ca asa se calmeaza). Din nefericire, studiile au aratat ca bebelusii care adorm cu biberonul in gura permit lichidelor sa stationeze pe dinti

Sugar present in the fluid continually nourishes the bacteria that are in the baby's mouth. Using this constant source of sugar, bacteria multiply and create a steady stream of tooth damaging acid. Night after night of acid attack results in cavity formation and extensive tooth decay. In some cases, the entire tooth can be eaten away by bacterially produced acid.

Zaharul din lichide hraneste bacteriile prezente in gura copilului. Utilizand aceasta sursa de zahar, bacteriile se vor multiplica si vor crea mediul acid daunator smaltului. Noapte dupa noapte atacul acid va duce la formarea leziunilor carioase. In unele cazuri dintele poate fi distrus in totalitate de atacul acid.

It is especially important to be vigilant against baby bottle tooth decay because baby teeth are more susceptible to tooth decay than adult teeth.

Este foarte importanta prevenirea cariei de biberon pentru ca dintii de lapte sunt mai predispusi la carie decat cei permanenti.

Additionally, constant sugar in the mouth can lead to a build-up of bacteria to a point where more harmful types of bacteria start becoming predominant. These bacteria cause gingivitis by invading gum tissue and releasing toxins. In severe cases, the bacteria and their toxins can attack bone structures supporting the teeth (periodontal disease) resulting in permanent damage.

In plus, zaharul prezent duce la dezvoltarea unor bacterii care pot deveni patogene. Aceste bacterii invadeaza gingia si elibereaza toxine producand gingivita. In cazuri grave bacteriile si toxinele lor pot ataca structura osoasa, provocand leziuni permanente.

Protecting Your Child

What can parents do to protect their children's teeth? We suggest that after every bottle feeding you take a wet cloth or gauze pad and gently wipe your child's gums and teeth. This will remove any bacteria containing plaque and excess sugar that may have built up. What liquid should you put in your baby's bedtime bottle? Natural juices such as grape juice or apple juice contain natural sugars which bacteria can use to create acids. Milk contains a sugar called lactose which bacteria can also use to create acid.
