What should you do if you notice that your child’s teeth are rotting?
- Consult a pediatric dentist.
- Do relevant x-rays to get proper diagnosis and treatment plan. Based on x-rays and clinical exam, the pediatric dentist will guide you with the treatment needs which can range from fillings to root canal treatments.
What can be done to avoid this situation?
- Use fluoride toothpaste twice daily after breakfast and before bedtime.
- Avoid nighttime feeding.
- Schedule a visit to a pediatric dentist at the time of eruption of the first tooth. Visit the dentist regularly every 6 months to check the status of the teeth, gums and jaw development.
- Get proper guidance from the pediatric dentist to avoid the teeth decay. This includes recommendations on how to clean your child teeth and gums, habits, nutrition and feeding.
