Frequently Asked Questions
Dental X-ray is a safe procedure which will help to determine whether your child's teeth are healthy and aligned. We recommend that a child get his x-rays taken at an early age so that the dentist can examine and devise ways to prevent future dental problems.
Dental sealants prevent food particles from being stuck in your child's teeth. They are coatings used to fill the crevices or pits on the chewing surfaces of teeth to avoid damage. A child should visit the dentist for his sealants as soon as his permanent teeth set in.
Sucking thumbs is a natural urge for babies to soothe themselves when they feel hungry, restless, or sleepy. It is very common among children, but it is best to put a stop to this habit before the permanent teeth come in. Thumbsucking may trigger problems with proper chew and swallow methods along with causing teeth to grow out of alignment (malocclusion) and position.
Primary or 'baby' teeth are essential and play a vital role in a child's overall development. Healthy teeth are essential for proper nutrition, speech, and also self-esteem. Baby teeth hold space in the jaw for the permanent teeth.
To clean your baby's teeth and gum, use a damp, clean washcloth or a soft toothbrush and gently dab the teeth after feedings. As soon as the teeth come out, start brushing them twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste and an age-appropriate toothbrush. Flossing daily will help clean the areas that cannot be reached by the toothbrush. Encourage your children to brush and floss as soon as he can do it on his own.
Never give your child sugary foods and drinks and maintain a healthy diet. You should never put your child to sleep with a bottle. Do not flavor his pacifiers with sweetened substances like honey or syrups. Brush his teeth twice daily and clean them after giving him medications that may contain high amounts of sugar.
Baby Bottle Tooth Decay (BBTD) or Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is attributed to prolonged duration of bottle feeding among children. If you put a child to sleep with a bottle of milk, juice, or formula, then it can lead to tooth decay. Do not give your child sweetened liquids as it means protracted contact between the bacteria on the susceptible tooth and the sugars present in the feeds or fluids. This increases the risk for dental caries.
Acids produced by bacteria in the dental plaque causes dental cavities or caries also known as tooth decay. Plaque is a thin film of bacteria, saliva and food debris that naturally develops on the tooth surface. These bacteria found in the plaque use sugar to produce acids which attack and destroy teeth and enamel.
A child's diet is one of the major factors concerning tooth decay. Teeth are at risk for decay as soon as they form. A caries risk assessment is an early examination which evaluates the child's risk of developing an oral disease.
Each child must be scheduled for checkup every six months however the dentist might recommend more visits according to the child's oral health.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that a child should visit the dentist as soon as his first birthday. A dentist should examine the child as soon as his first tooth erupts, usually between six to twelve months.
