5 Questions to Ask at your Pediatric Dentistry Clinic

dca-blog_article-07_pediatric-dental-problems_1200x630

You want your child to have a healthy smile, so you need to know the answers to these pediatric dental care questions.

1. When should my child visit a pediatric dentistry clinic?

It’s important to take your child to a pediatric dental clinic for a check-up every six months. This allows the pediatric dentist to evaluate their dental development and prevent dental problems. Depending on the child’s oral health, they may need to see the pediatric dentist more often. 

2. How should I clean my child’s teeth?

Pediatric dentists say it’s best to gently clean the child’s mouth with a small, soft-bristled toothbrush to remove any plaque and debris.

3. How often should I brush and floss my child’s teeth?

You must brush the child’s teeth at least twice a day and floss them at least once a day, preferably when they wake and before they go to bed. Be aware that pediatric dentists may say a child needs more frequent oral hygiene, based on their dental needs.

4. What should I do if my child has a toothache?

You should first rinse their mouth with warm, salty water. If their face is swollen, apply a cold compress to soothe the area. If the pain persists, give the child acetaminophen. Most importantly, take your child to a pediatric dentistry clinic as quickly as possible for treatment.

5. Are thumb sucking and pacifier use okay?

Generally, these two common childhood habits are harmless because the child eventually stops. But if they continue past the age of three, they may affect the child’s dental development. If you can’t get your child to stop, your pediatric dental clinic should be able to offer helpful tips.
