Dental Caries - symptom, Treatment of Dental Caries
Dental Caries Information
Dental Caries is an erosive infection of the teeth. The first signs of demineralization, a small "white spot" has been formed (initial caries, incipient caries). It is not yet a cavity, the surface is still hard. It is not calculated as "D" (Decayed) according to WHO criteria. With proper measures, the caries process can be halted here and even reversed. It usually occurs in children and young adults but can affect any person. It is the most important cause of tooth loss in younger people. Dental Caries can invade the pulp causing painful pulpitis, leading to a spreading infection, abscess formation, and osteomyelitis of the jaw.
Symptoms of Dental Caries
The first sign of Dental Caries is a dull white spot. As erosion progresses, a cavity occurs. The degree of erosion depends on the period of contact between the sugar and the tooth, not on the amount of sugar. This is the reason why a feeding bottle with a sweet feed that is held by the toddler for a long time at bedtime causes Dental Caries.
Causes of Dental Caries
Dental Caries is caused by the action of bacteria which is present in the mouth on traces of dietary sugar. Thses sugars are fermented into acids that demineralize the tooth. Swwets that are sucked are more likely to cause Dental Caries.
Treatment of Dental Caries
Teeth are restored with silver amalgam or plastic crowns. If the pulp is infected, antibiotic treatment, followed by removal of the pulp will be required. If the milk teeth need extraction, which is very rarely, a space retainer will be inserted to prevent crowding when the permanent teeth erupt.
