- My child, aged 1 year and 10 months, has the stone on the first four lower teeth. It has these deposits from 1 year and 6-7 months and if they disappear in one place, they appear in another. Please explain to me what could be the cause. Thank you very much.Answer:
The dental stone appears by precipitating and depositing some salts, especially clairvoyant salts, through a mechanism very similar to the one by which the tartar is deposited on a tap.
It is best to start washing the baby on the teeth (only at 3 years old the child can be asked to brush the teeth alone).
Other elements that favor the appearance of limestone and which should be avoided are: hard water, mineral water, nutritional supplements (vitamin cocktails) administered as such or added to food, administration of fluoride or fluoride containing products for "preventive" purposes.
Health wishes you,
