"Bakit Mahalaga Ang Baby Teeth?" by Maritess O. Villarico, DDM, MFLCD

Bakit Mahalaga Ang Baby Teeth?

Mataas ang insidente ng “dental caries” o pagkasira ng ngipin sa ating bansa. Sa pinakahuling survey na ginawa ng Department of Health noong 2011, lumabas na 8.8 sa bawat 10 bata na may edad na limang taong gulang ang may sirang ngipin. Kung ganito ang sitwasyon ng kalusugan ng mga batang Pinoy, maaari kayang sabihin na isa sa dahilan ay ang pagsasantabi ng mga magulang dahil, “Baby teeth lang naman yan”?  
  
Ang pagkakaroon ng malusog na bibig ay kasama sa matibay na pangangatawan. Bukod sa pangkain at pangnguya, ginagamit ang mga ngipin sa pagsasalita at sa pagbibigay ng kumpiyansa dahil sa magandang ngiti at malusog na hininga. Ang mga baby teeth din ang nagsisilbing gabay sa paglabas ng mga permanent teeth.  Sa pagpili ng mga madidikit at matatamis na pagkain at inumin at hindi sapat na pag-aalaga, mabilis na malulusaw ng mga bacteria ang mga ngipin na hindi maayos na nalilinisan. At pag nasimulan ang pagkasira ng ngipin, sa loob ng 3-6 na buwan ay maaari nang maramdaman  ng bata ang epekto ng sakit at impeksyon.

Ang kasabihang, “Sakit sa kalingkingan, ramdam ng buong katawan” ay maiisip sa pagkakataon ng sakit sa ngipin.  Ang batang may dinaramdam dahil sa impeksyon sa bibig ay maaaring walang ganang kumain o maglaro, mapili sa pagkain at hirap sa pagtulog kaya mabagal ang paglaki, iyakin, bugnutin, matamlay o mahiyain. Hindi kailangang sabihin ng bata ang masamang pakiramdam para malaman ng magulang na mayroon siyang dinaramdam. Ngunit hindi na dapat humantong sa malalang sitwasyon ang isang sakit na madali namang maiwasan sa pamamagitan ng tamang pag-aalaga at pamumuhay. Ang pinakamabisang pangkontra sa pagkakaroon ng sirang ngipin: tamang pagkain, sapat na pasisipilyo na may kasamang fluoride-containing toothpaste at palagiang pagbisita sa dentista. Bilang magulang, mahalaga rin na maging mabuting ehemplo sa mga anak dahil, “Kung ano ang ginagawa ng matanda ay siya ring gagawin ng mga bata.”
