In general, teeth discoloration has many reasons, such as: diseases and congenital problems, medical reasons, inappropriate eating or behavioral habits, and the use of certain medications, which we will discuss in full in the following article.
Stains created in teeth are divided into two categories: surface or external tooth discoloration and internal tooth discoloration. In external color change, the cause of color change is caused by external factors such as drinks, medicines, some foods, and such things, which can be easily treated because it is formed on the most superficial layer of the tooth, but in internal color change, which occurs in the inner layers An established tooth is much more difficult to remove. In the following, we will examine the cause of tooth discoloration in children and the treatment by a pediatric dentist.
There are various reasons for the change in the color of the teeth, and this change in color is a sign of a specific problem.
Tetracycline and some antibiotics, if used by pregnant mothers, cause teeth discoloration in children, even if they are not used by the child.
Some congenital diseases, such as defects in the formation of tooth enamel, cause dents and grooves to appear on the teeth, which causes the teeth to turn yellow or brown.
As it was said at the beginning of the text, discoloration in children’s teeth has different types and origins, and to treat it, you should first consult a pediatric dentist to determine the cause and provide appropriate treatment. If the cause of the color change is caused by external factors, it can be treated with scaling and simple methods. If the cause of the child’s teeth turning orange is of internal origin, the necessary treatment should be done according to the child’s age and conditions.
