Does your child have bad breath at a young age? It may be these 3 problems, don't take it seriously

Not long ago, I shared an article about brushing teeth, and many mothers said that it was very useful. I thought this would end here. Unexpectedly, a mother found it again and said that baby teeth are fine, but what should I do if I still have bad breath after brushing my teeth? Ahh~ I have bad breath at such a young age? ! Mothers who have not experienced it will be a little surprised, thinking that babies are not all milky and milky. In fact, bad breath is not uncommon in children. Some mothers have told me before that sometimes I occasionally get close to the child and try to "take a sip", but I smell the fragrant baby, and there is a special taste in the mouth. Smell it seriously, it doesn't smoke people, but the sense of existence is not low, "sucking babies" is impossible. Why is this so? Many adults do not understand, can not avoid worry. After all, the instinct of being a mother makes us dare not ignore the risks, and only dare to be a soldier. Today, let's talk about the troublesome thing about the baby's bad breath. PART.1 Is the child's bad breath aroused? It is not uncommon to say that children have bad breath. I've seen it in the community garden, there are children chasing a little boy and shouting "bad breath" and "bad breath"... Look at bad breath, whether it is big or small, it is most afraid of children. Discriminated by friends. Whose baby is treated like this, I believe it is inevitable that they will go to the doctor in a hurry. The first reaction of some parents is: Is the child angry? Begin to find ways to deodorize children. stop stop stop! Let's not go to the doctor in a hurry! Our baby is not a fire baby, there is really not that much "fire" to go on. Bad breath, or what people often think of as nosebleeds, sores on the tongue, etc., are actually all potential causes, and some may also be clinical manifestations of certain diseases. So, don't rush to fire the baby, we still have to figure out the specific reasons. PART.2 Causes and treatment methods of bad breath? Regarding bad breath in children, the possible reasons are not the only ones. Most of them are the following three: 1. The oral hygiene is not in place. If the child's mouth has accumulated milk or accumulated food residues, it will be easy to accumulate for a long time in the dead corners of the mouth such as between the teeth. Under the action of bacteria, it is fermented and decomposed, giving off a special rotten smell. In children, it is the bad breath we smell. Moreover, among these harmful bacteria in the oral cavity, there is also the presence of Helicobacter pylori. Clinical experiments of the Research Office of the School of Stomatology, China Medical University have shown that Helicobacter pylori is abundantly present in oral periodontal tissues, especially hidden in dental plaque, and is the second largest colony of Helicobacter pylori after gastric mucosa. After Helicobacter pylori is infected in the oral cavity, it will first decompose directly to produce sulfide, and then it will rapidly multiply, causing stubborn bad breath. Obviously, it is necessary to clean the mouth of the child on a regular basis. We have repeatedly emphasized that even if the baby teeth have not erupted, the baby's mouth should be cleaned every day. Once a day in the morning and evening, wrap your fingers with gauze and dipped in warm water to wipe, and brush the gums, oral mucosa and baby's tongue laterally. As soon as the first tooth grows, we have to use a toothbrush. But as the mother said in the opening chapter, what's the matter with the bad breath after brushing the baby's teeth? Sometimes just brushing your teeth isn't enough, you also need to floss. The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that you start flossing if you have two (adjacent) teeth. Because you don't floss, your teeth will never be brushed properly. By brushing your teeth alone, you can only clean about 65%, and the remaining 35% of the dirt is "hidden" in the teeth, and the brush head of the toothbrush cannot be touched. If it is not cleaned for a long time, the gap between the teeth will become a gathering place for food residues, and bacteria will breed with it, resulting in dental diseases such as dental calculus, bleeding gums, and periodontitis. This will aggravate the child's bad breath! Therefore, we must thoroughly clean our baby's mouth, and we can only accept the consequences of bad breath when we do surface work. 2. Dehydration and dry mouth, have you ever had this experience: when you just get up in the morning, you feel like there is a peculiar smell in your mouth as soon as you speak... This is normal, you are like this, and so are your children. After a full night of sleep, the mouth is noticeably dry and there is less saliva production. You know, water and saliva itself can play a moisturizing, cleaning, antibacterial and sterilizing role in the mouth. Whether it's dry mouth caused by drinking too little water, or dry mouth caused by diseases such as mouth breathing. Once the supply of water and saliva in the oral cavity is insufficient, the self-cleaning effect of the body will be affected, the rate of bacterial decomposition and reproduction will also be accelerated, and the oral cavity will be prone to odor and bad breath. Especially in the dry season, the problem of bad breath can be worse. It is also simple to improve this problem. That is hydration! Hydrate! Hydrate again! Mothers must supervise their children to drink water frequently and keep the inside of the mouth moist at all times. 3, gastroesophageal reflux gastroesophageal reflux, usually in children within 1 year of age. To put it simply, it is what the child eats and spills out of his mouth. If your child has bad breath and often spit up milk, it is necessary to consider whether it is gastroesophageal reflux. There is a "part" in our body called the cardia, which is where the esophagus connects to the entrance. Just like its name, its function is similar to that of a door. It is closed when it is normal. It will only be opened when the esophagus is transporting food downwards, and it will automatically close again when the food enters the stomach. The cardia can basically effectively prevent the solid liquid and even the gas in the stomach from running out. However, in many children, the development of the cardia is not yet complete, and they are prone to gastroesophageal reflux. This is a common disease for young children. In children with gastroesophageal reflux disease, the stomach acid will turn up with the food, and the mouth will naturally be filled with sour odor. This is a child's anatomy and there is no cure for it. But as the baby grows and the body gradually develops fully, the situation of gastroesophageal reflux will gradually decrease or disappear. Under normal circumstances, we can relieve it by hugging vertically, raising the mattress, taking intervals, and eating less frequently. However, if the baby has severe gastroesophageal reflux, often crying due to pain and feeding problems, it is best to follow the professional guidance of the doctor for treatment. Mother C said, look, a small baby with a small mouth can actually give birth to such a moth. When you encounter these things that make your child's bad breath, do you make trouble? It's much more than that! When children suffer from tonsil suppuration, rhinitis, bronchitis and other diseases, the exhaled gas will also have a rancid smell. In addition, children who add complementary foods too early, eat too much or eat too many snacks may also have bad breath when they have indigestion. Therefore, everything is put on the child, it must not be ambiguous. Hurry up and see if your little baby has these problems we talked about, and strive to make big things small and small things. Of course, nothing is best, who doesn't want to "suck" a milky baby?
