What is teeth to them? How does bruise occur? How about a healthy diet? We gave detailed information by asking different questions such as how to brush the teeth and how to brush the teeth.
Answered Children’s Questions
Melis Daraoğlu Gürel, who also answered the questions of the students in her presentation, continued as follows: “Caries can be seen on the front teeth of children who use feeding bottles and pacifiers for a long time. Children can break their teeth by hitting their mouths while running and playing, or the tooth can come out with its root. If it is a small fracture, it needs to be intervened with filling. However, if the tooth is completely dislodged, it is necessary to put it in a glass of milk and consult a dentist as soon as possible. Brushing your teeth at least twice a day is another valuable issue. In addition, the use of dental floss is valuable in terms of cleaning the areas that the toothbrush cannot reach. Apart from these, sharp pens, toothpicks and similar things should not be inserted into the mouth to remove the food left in the middle of the teeth. (BSHA-Science and Health News Agency)
