Your Quick Guide to Common Pediatric Dental Care Concerns

If you’re the parent of a young child, you can look forward to experiencing the many exciting stages of childhood dental development. You may also hit a few bumps along the way, so it’s best to be informed and prepared. Finding a skilled kids dentist can help. Pediatric dental care is important for ensuring your child’s oral health. Because pediatric dentists are experienced in the treatment and prevention of dental problems in newly developing teeth, they can detect and treat problems before your child suffers significant pain or disability. Listed below are common pediatric dental care concerns you may encounter.

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay



To avoid early tooth decay related to extensive bottle use, wipe your baby’s gums with clean gauze after each feeding to remove plaque. Fill bottles with only formula or breast milk; avoid feeding juice, soda, or other sugary drinks in a bottle, and don’t let your baby sleep with a bottle.

Emergency Dental Care



Accidents and emergencies can happen at any time. Always have contact information for kids dentists available, and call or visit one immediately when a dental injury or other emergency occurs. If your child’s tooth becomes knocked out, try to place it back into the socket. If you can’t, store it in milk, and call the dentist immediately.

Thumb Sucking



According to kids dentists, most children stop sucking their thumbs by the age of four. If it continues after age four, consult your pediatric dentist.

Space Maintainers



Space maintainers are used to hold a space open for a permanent tooth when a baby tooth is lost prematurely.

Dental Sealants

Pediatric dentists apply dental sealants to the chewing surfaces of back teeth to prevent decay. The process is quick and painless.

Mouth Guards

Mouth guards prevent serious injuries like broken teeth and jaw fractures. If your child participates in sports, ask your dentist about custom mouth guards.

Bite Problems and Braces



Problems with the way the teeth fit together, also called malocclusion, are generally treated by a pediatric dental care specialist called an orthodontist. If your child needs braces because of crooked teeth or other developmental problems, your dentist will provide a referral.
