Mom and Dad, start early..

As soon as your baby is born, gently clean your baby’s gums after each feedings with a soft, damp washcloth. Make this a part of your routine and help your little ones build a lifetime of good oral habits.

Take your child to the dentist as soon as you welcome your baby’s first milk tooth or by his or her first birthday. This way, your child’s dentist gets a better chance of preventing any dental problems.

Morning appointments are best for your child’s first visit. Coming from a good night’s sleep, your child is more rested and much more cooperative in the morning. Also, morning appointments will not pose conflicts on your child’s mealtimes or naps.

Children who enjoy their first trip to their dentists (and their sunny, colorful rooms with fancy paintings on the walls) suggest a promising attitude towards their dental care, health and habits.

Childrens Dentistry General Facts

What happens on your baby’s first visit?

The first dental visit is as important as his or her first steps and equally as momentous as his or her first words. Your child’s teeth and gums will be checked for signs of tooth decay or other problems. To evaluate whether the facial bones and teeth are developing properly, or if there are hidden decay, X-rays may be taken. Your baby’s teeth may also be cleaned and his oral habits, like thumb-sucking, may be assessed.

Pediatric Dental Emergencies

Injuries to children's teeth are stressful for both children and their parents. It is best to contact your dentist immediately should your child need urgent dental treatment. Prompt treatment leads to better chances of treating and saving your child's teeth. Parents must keep the emergency phone numbers always available and convenient for easy reference.

Toothache

Rinse your child's mouth with lukewarm water and gently apply cold compress to reduce swelling. Never apply heat or aspirin directly on the tooth or gums. Aspirin is acidic and may cause burns or stings. Over the counter pain medications adjusted accordingly to your child's age and weight will help relieve pain and discomfort. Book an appointment with your dentist immediately.

If your child has something lodged in between his teeth, gently remove it using a dental floss. Do not use any sharp tool or metal to remove it.

Broken, Chipped or Knocked Out Tooth

Find the tooth and rinse it with clean water. Be careful not to touch it by the root; handle it by the crown only. Do not use soap to clean it. If possible, put it back in its socket and gently hold it steady with a clean cloth. If you're unable to do it, place it in a clean container with cold water or milk. Do not wrap it in tissue or in a cloth. The tooth should not be allowed to dry. Your child should visit the dentist at the earliest to save the tooth.

Loose Tooth

Loose tooth should be removed to avoid your child from swallowing or choking from it. Encourage your child to remove it himself. Only he knows how much discomfort he can stand.

Broken Jaw

Use cold compress to reduce swelling. Your child might need immediate medical attention. Head to the hospital as soon as you can. Severe blows to the head can be life-threatening.

Avoiding Dental Injuries

The best approach to dental injuries is to avoid them. Prevent toothache by regular brushing and flossing. Avoid giving them hard foods to chew on. Have him wear protective gears including a mouth guard if he plays contact sports. It is best to inform the dentist if your child has had any dental procedures done before letting him play. Always use car seats and require seatbelts for your children. Childproof your house. Keep the floors dry to avoid falls. Lastly, regular dental check-ups will help determine additional preventive strategies suited for your child.
