Management of rampant caries
Rampant caries can be described as decay that spreads quickly, destroying the crowns of many or all of the erupted teeth. These affect the anterior teeth of the child and causes them to turn brown or black in colour. This is typically the case when the child is left with a bottle and fed during the night or prior to sleeping. Although the condition is most often associated with drinking from a bottle, it is rare, but possible to develop rampant caries from breast milk if feeding is carried out on-demand management. This condition
is preventive from parent education about the feeding of the child and regular brushing of the child‘s teeth.
Sealing is a procedure performed on healthy premolar and molar teeth. The anatomic structure of their occlusal surfaces is conducive to bacterial activity as soon as your teeth erupt. Occlusal surfaces contain deep pits and fissures which are not properly brushed and are not rinsed by saliva. The unique structure of these teeth are conducive to bacterial activity and causes uncontrolled development of dental caries.
To prevent dental caries, pit and fissure sealing is performed. This procedure, performed by a dentist, is completely painless and comfortable for the patient.
This method consists of applying solutions, gels and fluoride varnishes to the teeth. The fluoride, which is released from these substances, integrates into the enamel and makes it more resistant to the dental plaque acids while increasing the hardness degree of the enamel. Fluoride also causes remineralization (regeneration) of tiny enamel losses.
