Parents with children! Part 3
The period of development of milk teeth
After the eruption of the first milk teeth (as a rule, these are the lower incisors, about 7-8 months), a sharp change in function occurs. The activity of the muscles closing the jaw increases, the alveolar crests experience a greater load due to denser food and biting of dense objects. The appearance in the diet of dense food marks the transition to chewing. In most cases, the chewing takes place in a forward displaced position of the jaw. Under the influence of mainly the tongue and lips, the development of alveolar ridges is accelerated. Prolonged sucking on the nipples or thumb can result in functional or morphological disturbances (i.e., deformities). Another etiological factor of violations, is unreasonably long bottle feeding. Usually the baby is fed from a bottle before bed to calm him down. This leads to oral breathing, which adversely affects the development of the upper jaw and can provoke caries. Such an early developing pathology is called “caries due to artificial feeding.”
In the same period, there are other important events: the improvement of communication skills due to the study of the native language and the transition to a predominantly vertical position of the body, which in turn has a significant impact on the bones of the skull and cervical spine. With the development of milk teeth, communication skills develop to the third level (communicative speech) of the Bühler-Popper scheme. The first sign of this period is the child repeating vowels. In this period there is a danger of a transition of functional speech disorders from teacher to child. The latter learns language by imitation. In this context, the fact that the function predetermines the form (Garliner), i.e. Functional speech disorders also play an important role in shaping. Thus, structural or functional defects in the speech of the father or mother can lead to the development of a similar disorder in a child, and the functional disorder can be transformed into a structural one. The assumption that the formation of bite is always predetermined by genetic factors has not been proven. From the standpoint of preventing the development of the pathology of the chewing organ, speech deserves special attention.
Language is imitation. Learning a mother tongue is associated with the risk of mother-to-child transference disorders. Speech therapist consultation may be required.
As milk teeth develop, the first signs of programming the neuromuscular system appear. Frequently encountered discrepancy of the dental arches (in shape and size) causes difficulties in closing the teeth. The system finds the functionally optimal position of the lower jaw, which may be asymmetric with respect to the upper. In the latter case, the initially symmetrical jaw begins to develop asymmetrically due to functional adaptation. Over time, functional asymmetry becomes structural.
When diagnosing it is necessary to differentiate developmental disorders due to compensation from other causes. In the course of development, the masticatory organ tends to optimal morphology to perform the desired function. The goal of adaptation is always to ensure optimal functioning, but not always in the body because of harmful factors.
These data indicate the importance of the role of the pediatrician. Timely elimination of functional disorders can prevent structural disorders. A pediatrician advised by a functional impairment dentist (gnatologist) is dependent on their knowledge. From the point of view of prophylaxis, it would be a gross mistake to allow the identified functional disorders to be finally formed. It should be understood that with the progression of disorders, the problem lies not only in the appearance of the asymmetric jaw, but also in the asymmetry of its movement, which will further affect the health of the teeth, jaw joint, muscles and ligaments. Orthodontic treatment of patients with compensated dysnia can lead to decompensation and the occurrence of dysfunction.
Important – marked in bold.
The formation of a child depends on its proper life support. Recall a documentary about African tribes that stretch their necks from an early age using rings. Similarly, the structures of the joint and jaws are formed or deformed during feeding and growth. The following articles will more reveal the significance and value of the functional formation of the child.

As a doctor, they often ask me why our child is already 5 years old or so, or so you say, violations. Maybe it is genetically or nature created, so it should be. This is a very big and in-depth question. The following my articles and reprints of world knowledge will open the curtain of all questions of the development and formation of a child’s body from the first days of life. This knowledge will help to form an ideal person with a great physical immunity. Levchenko Lev Vladimirovich.
