Baby teeth care is very important. Why do children have cavities? The different reasons are for the different age. Infringement of feed and an improper diet for the child, insufficient hygiene of an oral cavity and still the whole list of factors and the reasons influence occurrence and development of caries process. Besides, in the literature today there is a little information on such a problem, as so-called "bottle" cavities of the teeth.
Children who fall asleep hardly or suffer from any illness can often be easily calmed down, receiving a bottle with milk. The problem is in fact that the liquid in the bottle may contain fermented carbohydrates even if we speak about milk. Though the drinks sated by vitamin C or juices are more often.
"Bottle" cavities of the teeth develop quickly in children who are fed from the bottle at night. It arises in 2.5 - 15 % of cases and is characterized by advancement of the forward teeth of the top jaw of the small child. Later advancement develops on the chewing teeth at both the top and the bottom jaw.
The explanation of this phenomenon is the following. The substratum causing caries adjoins to external surfaces of the top forward teeth for a very long time. Besides the low level of saliva at night is marked, and one of the functions of a saliva in an organism is a protective function, that is caused by the high maintenance of various micro cells and fluorine in it.
Under the same scheme cavities arise as a result of breast feeding. Breast feeding for an extended period of time means presence of lactic bacteria on a surface of a teeth during long time while children on the mixed feeding start to use different, including firm, food that conducts to auto purification of firm tissues of teeth. Protective function of saliva is broken at feedings on demand when the child receives milk at any moment. Thus, the saliva cannot constantly wash an oral cavity as there are lactic bacteria all the time.
