Children's tooth decay differs from that of adults. Milk teeth have very thin enamel, especially in the areas between the teeth and at the gum margins, bacteria from plaque can easily get to the dentin. Dentin is the main tooth tissue. It is much softer than enamel and is destroyed more rapidly, so decayed baby teeth do not look so bad for the time being.
It is advisable to start treating malocclusion immediately, as soon as the problem is detected. Malocclusion can cause not only aesthetic problems (disproportionate jaw, crooked tooth alignments, etc.), but also periodontic problems, tooth and gum damage, tooth decay, tooth abrasion, face and neck pain, chronic migraines and even gastrointestinal tract diseases.
