Common Dental Problems for Children

Children experience at least as many dental problems as adults, if not more. Not all dental problems are obvious, which is why you need to schedule routine check-ups so your family dentist can identify problems and provide treatment.

Tooth Decay

Carbohydrate-rich foods such as candy, cookies, and soft drinks leave deposits on teeth that can damage the mineral structure of the teeth, resulting in tooth decay.

Sensitive Teeth

If your child experiences discomfort or irritation when consuming hot and cold food or beverages, visit your family dentist for treatments aimed at resolving tooth sensitivity.

Gum Disease

Gingivitis, or gum disease, is often the result of poor oral hygiene and an over accumulation of plaque. In the early stages, gingivitis may cause gums to bleed easily and become red and swollen.

Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom teeth can occasionally cause pain during eruption. If swelling arises, immediate dental care is necessary to prevent infection.

FAQs

Q: When should I take my child to the dentist for the first time?

A: It’s important to bring your child to the dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his or her first birthday. The earlier you establish a relationship with your family dentist, the better off your children’s oral health will be.

Q: How often does my child need to see a family dentist?

A: A check-up is recommended every six months in order to prevent cavities and other common dental problems. However, your Renton family dentist can tell you when and how often your child should visit based on their personal oral health.

Q: What are sealants and how do they work?

A: Sealants are applied by dentists to prevent cavities and provide effective teeth protection for many years. Sealants work by filling in the crevasses on chewing surfaces that can trap food particles and plaque.
