From Baby Teeth to Pediatric Dentists – Dental Concerns that All Parents Face

dca-blog_thumb-sucking-cute-girl

Your child’s dental health and development is important for his or her overall health, so it’s important to start pediatric dental care early. Pediatric dentists know how to recognize and treat early dental problems in children, so your child won’t have to endure unnecessary pain or disability.

Even if your child has excellent dental health, you’re likely to run into a few problems along the way, so it’s helpful to be informed about the common pediatric dental care concerns listed below.

  • Emergency Pediatric Dental Care: Accidents and emergencies can happen at any time. Always have contact information for pediatric 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. 


  • Baby Bottle Dental Decay: To avoid early tooth decay caused by 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.
  • Sucking Thumbs: 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. 


  • Tooth Space Maintainers: Pediatric dentists use space maintainers to hold open a space for a permanent tooth when a baby tooth is lost prematurely. 


  • Tooth Sealants: Dental sealants are products that pediatric dentists apply to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent cavities in vulnerable teeth. The process is quick and painless.
  • Orthodontic Braces: Problems with how the teeth fit together—called malocclusion—are typically 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 can provide a referral.
  • Mouth Guards: Pediatric dentists can provide mouth guards to prevent serious injuries like broken teeth and jaw fractures. If your child participates in sports, ask your dentist about custom mouth guards.
