My 5yo daughter loves going to the dentist. It’s a very cheerful and kid-friendly atmosphere - the entire place is filled with things kids love. Everyone is very friendly and they take the time to talk to you about your kids’ dental care. I will definitely be bringing my younger daughter in for her first dental check up too.

Parents, did you know this about your child’s oral care?

Brushing should begin as soon as the first tooth appears. Make this a part of your child’s routine and help your little ones build a lifetime of good oral habits. When it comes to infants, it is recommended to gently clean their gums after each feeding with a soft, damp washcloth.
In order to keep your child’s teeth clean and healthy, you should get him or her to see the dentist every six months. You can do this by taking your child to the dentist right after he or she turns one year old or before the first tooth begins to come through. By doing so, you give your child’s doctor a greater chance of keeping cavities and gum disease from developing. Youngsters with healthy teeth chew food easily, learn to speak clearly, and smile with confidence.

Dental care for your baby

Teeth start to develop while the child is in the womb. Most babies begin growing teeth by the third and sixth months of pregnancy, others may develop faster or slower than usual.

At birth, a complete set of 20 primary teeth are grown hidden within the gums. Primary teeth are also known as milk teeth, deciduous teeth, or baby teeth. The first tooth generally erupts at about six months of age. ‘Eruption’ refers to the tooth breaking or cutting through the gums. For babies, this is more commonly called ‘teething’.

Your child's first dental visit

The first dental visit should be just as important as your first steps and just as momentous as your first words. A thorough examination of your baby’s teeth and mouth will help determine whether he has any cavities or gum disease.

An evaluation of the size and shape of his jawbones, and an assessment of the position of his muscles and tongue will help identify any abnormalities. X-rays may be used to assess the condition of his teeth. 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 emergency phone numbers easily accessible for timely communication.

Some instances of dental emergencies are:

Toothache
Loose Tooth
Broken Jaw
Knocked Out Tooth

Should your child need urgent dental attention, call us right away at +971 4 394 9433 (Umm Suqeim Branch), or +971 4 339 7700 (Children’s Dental Center).

Dental sealants for kids

Dental sealants are thin plastic coatings that are painted on the chewing surfaces of one or more teeth to avoid dental caries. They are more commonly applied to the back teeth; the molars and premolars. The liquid sealant becomes a hard, thin layer that forms a protective shield over the enamel of each tooth. This prevents food and plaque from getting caught and stuck within the depressions and grooves of the teeth.

Children are the most obvious candidates for sealants. They should visit their dentists for sealant applications as soon as their molars and premolars erupt. This may remain effective for five years or more and can protect their teeth through the cavity-prone years of six to fourteen. Each person has unique needs. Adults at risk for caries and those without prior filings may also benefit from sealants.

Though sealants can protect the teeth for years, they may need to be examined for chipping, wearing or breaking. They may be fixed and replaced by your pediatric dentist as necessary.

 

 

FAQ

Most frequently asked questions

Your child should be scheduled for check-ups once every six months. However, your dentist may recommend more visits depending on your child’s personal oral health.

A child’s diet is a major factor concerning tooth decay. Teeth are at risk for decay as soon as the first tooth erupts. An early examination evaluates your child’s risk of developing an oral disease using a caries risk assessment.

Tooth decay, otherwise known as dental caries or cavities, is caused by the acids produced by the bacteria in the dental plaque. Plaque is a thin film of bacteria, saliva and food debris that naturally develops on the tooth surface. These bacteria found in the plaque use sugar to produce acids which attack and destroy teeth and tooth enamel.

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay (BBTD) or Early Childhood Caries (ECC) is attributed to prolonged duration of bottle feeding among children. Putting a child to sleep with a bottle of milk, juice or formula can lead to tooth decay. Giving your child sweetened liquids over a long period of time means protracted contact between the bacteria on the susceptible tooth surfaces and the sugars present in the feeds or liquids. This increases the risk for dental caries.

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry suggests that a child should visits the dentist no later than his first birthday. A child should be examined by the dentist as soon as his first tooth erupts, usually between six to twelve months.

Primary or ‘baby’ teeth play a vital role in your child’s over-all development. Healthy and well-aligned teeth are essential for proper nutrition, speech and consequently, self esteem. Without good teeth formation, he may have difficulty in forming words or speaking clearly.

Baby teeth hold space in the jaw for the permanent teeth. Teeth next to a missing tooth may encroach into the space left by the missing tooth thereby resulting to permanent teeth forming in the wrong positions.

X-rays will help determine whether your child’s teeth and jaw are healthy and aligned. It is a safe procedure. It is recommended that a child gets his x-rays taken at an early age in order for his dentist to examine and devise ways to prevent future dental problems.

Thumbsucking is common among children. It is a natural urge for babies to soothe themselves whenever they feel hungry, restless or sleepy. It is best to put a stop to thumbsucking before the permanent teeth come in. This may not only trigger problems with proper chewing and swallowing, it may also cause may cause teeth to grow out of alignment (malocclusion) and position.

Remind. Distract. Reward.

Be supportive. Be open and talk to your child openly about it. Nagging will most likely lead to worse results. A positive reminder is useful for children who are ready to stop the habit.

Distract your child by offering him other comfort objects like toys or even pacifiers. Pacifiers make less damage to the oral makeup and structure than thumbsucking. There are over the counter non-toxic bitter paints that you can apply on his fingernails that may help him keep his thumb off his mouth.

Start a progress chart and reward your child each day that he does not suck his thumb.

  1. Use a damp, clean washcloth or a soft toothbrush to clean your baby’s gums after feedings.
  2. As soon as your child’s teeth erupt, start brushing them twice daily with fluoridated toothpaste and with an age-appropriate toothbrush.
  3. For children less than two years of age, a ‘smear’ of toothpaste is advised, while for children between two to five years of age, a ‘pea-sized’ amount of toothpaste is recommended.
  4. Flossing regularly will help clean areas that cannot be reached by a toothbrush.
  5. Encourage your child to brush and floss as soon as he has the ability to do it on his own.
  1. Never put your child to sleep with a bottle.
  2. Avoid sugary foods and drinks and maintain a healthy diet for your child.
  3. Do not flavor his pacifiers with sweetened substances like honey or syrups.
  4. Brush his teeth twice daily and clean them after giving him medications that may contain high amounts of sugar.

Symptoms of teething baby include restlessness and irritability, gum swelling, sleeping problems, loss of appetite, increased saliva or drooling, rashes or redness in the cheeks and frequent biting of fingers and other objects into the mouth.

Comfort your baby by giving him something to chew on, such as a cold teeth ring or a cold clean washcloth. Soothe him by gently massaging and rubbing his gums. If none of this works, your doctor may suggest giving your baby acetaminophen to relieve his pain.
