Common dental problems for kids

December 28th, 2018

Your child has had teeth for a very short while, however, they face
many common dental problems that adults encounter.
Pediatric dentists are specially trained to examine and manage
dental issues in the mouth and jaw.

Acting fast on developing issues can spare your young ones the
unnecessary pain and save time and money.

Tooth decay is extremely common among children. It is caused by bacteria and plaque
acids that attack and destroy tooth enamel. Attention to diet and strict oral hygiene
can help prevent decay.

Thumb sucking is not usually a cause for concern unless it persists after the development of permanent teeth. At this stage, it could affect dental health.
A kids’ dentist can work with your child to find a solution.

Gum disease, also called gingivitis, is an inflammation of gum tissue that can progress
to bone damage and tooth loss. It is often caused by poor oral hygiene.
Your dentist can help reverse early stages of gum disease and improve your
child’s oral hygiene habits.

 

Bad breath can affect people of any age. Potential sources of mouth odor include
poor dental hygiene, inflames gums, and dry mouth. It may also be related
to medical issues.

 

An over-retained primary tooth is a baby tooth that remains in position while
a permanent tooth is trying to erupt into the same space. It could indicate
impaction or a congenital abnormality. Early diagnosis ensures a
better outcome.

 

Tooth grinding is common during childhood development. It can damage primary or
permanent teeth and can even cause pain. Your kid’s dentist can treat the problem
with a custom night guard.

 

Proper oral care provides early prevention to dental problems and creates
good oral health for a lifetime. If your child does not have a dentist or has not been seen
in a while, call us and schedule a visit. If you have any questions, please feel free to contact us. We are always willing to help.
