Question:

Hi all of you
Our boy of 2 years has never really liked to get brushed teeth and now that he has become more independent it is almost completely impossible without that we feel that we are making attacks on him. We try to sing, read books, exchange ml alm toothbrush and electric but he cries and howls and squirms. Finally, I hold his head ml my legs and get it over with. But I would like to have it to be a good daily hyggestund and not a fight.

Kind regards Pernille

Answer:

Dear Pernille,

I think you approach it in the right way. It would be much worse if your son got holes in my teeth because Of not brushing them. He will eventually give up and accept to get brushed teeth. There are several parents in the same situation as you. It is very frustrating, but hold out because it pays off in the end.

Hope you can use my answer.

With kind regards

Question:

My 3. tooth from the middle of the overmund is very sensitive when I brush your teeth, take the cream or feel with your tongue but not when I chew. Go regularly to the dentist and have had several images, which all show a healthy tooth, so no treatment is offered. Any precedents?

Answer:

Dear Carsten,

It suggests you have sensitive tooth necks. It happens when you use the wrong tandbørsteteknik and the root becomes exposed. The gentlest method is to use small circular movements with your toothbrush against the teeth. Your dentist may want. try to treat your tooth with Fluoride to see if it helps your symptoms.

Question 2:

Hi Joan

Amazes me as to the symptoms only by one tooth.
