MISLEADING IDEAS ABOUT TOOTH DECAY
« on: May 17, 2012, 11:27:07 PM »


Parents should be aware of totally misleading ideas that are being disseminated about tooth decay, toothaches and dental caries.
 These include:
i.   “Filling of decay tooth does not work” This is false. The best treatment for a decay tooth, if you report on time to the dentist, is filling. The hole is cleansed and filled with dental material.
ii.   Certain people can remove “germs” from decay tooth. This is not true. It is not maggot that decays teeth. Tooth decay is caused by fermentation of sugar by bacteria in the mouths. And it is the acid produced from sugar fermentation by bacteria that decays the tooth. If you go to remove the so-called germ, you will eventually extract (remove) the tooth.
iii.   If you remove one tooth you will remove all your teeth. This is False. Extraction is the last option when you report late to the dentist. If you report on time you do not need to extract (remove) your teeth. Don’t delay to seek the dentist attention    thinking that your tooth may be extracted.
