5 Things You Should Know When Your 6-Year-Old Loses His Baby Teeth

photo by  cuta.jp

My daughter has a loose tooth, lower central incisor niya. She's only 4 turning 5 this September. We regularly visits her pedia dentist. Fortunately, naiwasan and tooth decay and dental erosion but this. Fear ko po, baka matagalan siyang bungi. Kelan po ba talaga nauubos ang milk teeth and kelan tutubo ang permanent teeth. Some of the articles i've read around 6 years old daw. Does this mean na pagnatangggal yung loose tooth ni baby we have to wait for a year pa bago tumubo yung new tooth or magstart na po ba yun lumabas kahit 5 years old pa lang?

Hi, Mommies! Baby teeth are essential to a childís health and functioning. They help the child in eating, speaking, and jaw development. Imagine a child with no 2 front teeth, di ba kumakawala ang hangin when the child talks? Primary or milk teeth also boost smile and confidence in children. They are also important for esthetic reasons.  A child cannot readily smile if he has caries or lost tooth.  If  a primary tooth (baby tooth) is lost before the succeeding permanent erupts, there might be orthodontic problems, such as space loss, teeth drifting and tooth rotation. 
Some lower central incisors may erupt as early as 5 years old.  When the gum area become whitish at parang may umuumbok na, it is indicative that the permanent successor is ready to erupt.
Continue to have that good practice of bringing your kids to the dentist!

Usually around 6-7 years old dapat mag loose ang milk teeth nila. 

Yun panganay ko 10 years old, nag loose yun last 4 milk teeth niya last month and it will grow around 3 weeks or more depende sa bata at sa ngipin na tumutubo.

Also, take good care of their molars kasi yun ang permanent na.  As for my 10-year old son, pina pastahan (white) ko lahat ng molars para hindi na masisira.

They say you have to extract the tooth even if its okay pa kasi yung permanent tooth na patubo pa lang baka magsungki. Don't wait for the teeth na mabulok. It may lead to another problem. I hope makapagbigay ng feedback sa 'tin si sis annadmd and other experienced moms.  :)

Good day everyone!
We recommend that children be brought to the dentist before the first or second birthday, as quite a few teeth have been erupted by then. The 1st tooth will erupt around the 6th month, therefore, it is important for the parents be in charge of the babyís mouthís cleanliness since then, and not wait till the child is 2 years old.  A soft, clean cloth can be used to gently wipe the babyís gums and the teeth clean. I used the  thin "lampin" and white cotton shirts to clean my kid's teeth then, after brushing their teeth.  A fine gauze can also help clean the teeth, gums, and tongue.
Try to prepare your child mentally to get him/her be more cooperative while visiting the dentist.  The first dental visit is very important as this will give a huge impact to the child. Some grown-ups are afraid of the dentist because of the bad experience they had. So if your child has a bad first visit, it would probably make the child afraid of the dentist for the rest of the childís life. Never make it a habit as well of telling your child, "Sige tutusukin ka ng doctor."  For sure, your child will have a phobia!!!

RE:  Extraction of milk teeth

A milk tooth can be extracted if the succeeding permanent tooth is already erupting.  Ginagawa ito para tumubo nang mas maayos ang permanent at maiwasang masungki ang bata.  Pero hindi po sa lahat ng pagkakataon ay nakakaiwas ng sungki ang pagbunot ng milk tooth.  We also have to consider the size of the jaw of the patient and some other factors. 
Wag din naman po agad pabunutan ang bata because early extraction of teeth may cause unwanted shifting of other teeth present in the mouth.  Tama ka Sis Errych na kahit hindi pa bulok, tinatanggal na pag kinakailangan.

Mommy ahyzeyuh, please do not depend on your HMO to have your child's teeth checked.  Bring your child to the dentist before it's too late.

@casperthegoat: Yung paninilaw ng ngipin ng anak mo ay tinatawag  "nursing bottle caries."  Mula sa paninilaw ay maaring maging brown ito hanggang tuluyang mangitim.  This severe decay is usually caused by sugary drinks, sweets, milk ,and even prolonged breast fand bottle feeding.  Minsan pa po nakakagawian nating patulugin ang bata nang naka-dede, so mas matagal na nae-expose ang ngipin sa sugar content ng gatas.

Your child's teeth can be restored with composite filling, depending upon the severity of the caries.  Lalo na pag cooperative siya, pwede pa talagang pastahan.  Pwede ring lagyan ng "caps" (jacket crowns) pag medyo malaki na ang sira.  This can be tooth-colored, silver, or gold.

Mommies, bring your child along whenever you go to your dentist.  Introduce them to your doctor.  If they see you being treated and there is no harm befalling you, the child is less likely to resist when itís their turn to go visit the dentist. Wag nyo naman dadalhin if your appointment is for extraction  ;D

Remember to observe proper oral hygiene and eat healthy!

good day sis annadmd, baby ko di naman nabababad ang dede sa bibig niya, kahit tulog na siya once na ubos na automatic inaabot niya sa akin (even nakapikit) kapag hindi ko na abot ibabato na niya, hindi po siya sanay na nakababad sa bibig niya yung bote, and mix feeding din kasi siya. wala pa kasi ako mahanap na dentist, dentist kasi namin sa province every six months ang check up ko sa kanya. last kasi may pa kaya nov pa ang balik ko kaya po  naghahanap ako ng dito sa manila area

di ko malinisan ng lampin or even cotton dahil nagwawala ayaw niya ibukas ang bibig niya and sometimes he bite pa, pwede po parecommend ng pedia-dentist.

sabi sa akin kapag ipacheck up gawin agad ang cleaning & flouride, yung po ba talaga ang step? TIA

@ casperthegoat:  So mahirap talaga linisan ng ngipin ang baby mo kaya nag-develop ng caries.  After sana niya dumede eh may water intake agad to lessen the concentration of sugar na naiwan sa bibig niya. Kadalasan kapag hindi naba-brush nang maayos ang teeth ay may mga naiiwang food debris o tirang pagkain sa bibig na unti-unting nakakasira ng ngipin.

Usually, on first appointments, we familiarize the child on who the dentist is, the small mirrors, the little toothbrush, and other materials na hindi makaka-intimidate sa kanya.  It is usually a "kwentuhan" session.  Mapapakiramdaman naman if the child will be cooperative enough to open his mouth and show his teeth to the dentist.

How old is your child again? Where do you live here in Manila?
