Pedodontics

Education and prevention are the cornerstones of our concern for the dental health of children. We recommend the first checkup by 12 months of age. A simple guide for when to schedule a first visit:

  • no longer than 6 months after first tooth is erupted
  • at least by 12 months old
  • as soon as possible if you have any querries
Pedodontics

There is a significant value for early dental checkups. In particular, checkups for very young children address many concerns including teaching adults how to care for their child's teeth and gums, how to help their children learn to care for themselves, answering parents questions and concerns, and planning for future dental health.
Home Dental Care Tips:

It is often difficult initially to brush your child's teeth. They can really put up a struggle, screaming, kicking, crying, running away, not opening their mouths - every kid is different.
Healthy teeth and gums are so important to start out life with. We've often heard the value of choosing your battles with your children, and this is one to choose.
Remember that the initial challenge you face is actually more taxing on you than it ultimately is for your child.

NURSING Bottle Tooth Decay/ Baby Bottle tooth caries:
The rapid decay of many or all the baby teeth of an infant or child.


The teeth most likely to be damaged are the upper front teeth. They are some of the first teeth to erupt and thus have the longest exposure time to the sugars in the bottle. The lower front teeth tend to be protected by the tongue as the child sucks on the nipple of the bottle or the breast.
Baby Bottle Tooth Decay is caused by frequent exposure of a child's teeth for long periods of time to liquid containing sugars. When your baby falls asleep with:

  • a bottle containing formula, milk or juice
  • a pacifier dipped in honey
  • while breast feeding

Parents may not know there is a problem until serious damage has been done:

  • Oral checks should be performed by parents to detect early signs of the disease.
  • Brown spots along the gumline on your child's teeth are signs which should alert you.
  • If your child prefers soft foods, frowns or cries when eating cold, sweet, or hard foods, they should be checked for tooth decay.

By the time tooth decay is noticed it may be too late. As a result, your child may suffer from long term disorders, which include speech impediments, possible psychological damage, crooked or crowded teeth, and poor oral health.

  • You can prevent this from happening
  •  to your child's teeth by learning how to protect them.
  • clean your child's teeth daily
  • never allow your child to fall asleep with a bottle filled with juice, milk, or formula (or when awake, sip on it for long periods of time as a pacifier)
  • start bottle weaning by at least a year
  • give your child plain water for thirst
  • make sure your child gets the fluoride needed to prevent decay
  • have regular dental visits for your child beginning when their first tooth erupts

TIP: Cut back on sugary bottles by gradually watering them down until they are only water.
Most children begin life with strong, healthy teeth. Help your child's teeth stay that way. Your newborn is totally dependent upon you as a parent. The decisions you make will have a vital effect on your child's dental future.

Should I clean my baby's teeth?
Definitely. Even before the first tooth appears, use a soft, clean cloth to wipe your baby's gums and cheeks after feeding. As soon as the first tooth appears, begin using a small, soft bristled tooth brush to clean the tooth after eating. Don't cover the brush with toothpaste. Young children tend to swallow most of the toothpaste, and swallowing too much fluoridated toothpaste can cause permanent spots on their teeth called dental fluorosis.
