Newport Beach Dentist Answers Pediatric Dentistry Questions

Newport Beach cosmetic dental practice reviews children's dental care.

What is the ideal age for children visit a dentist?

We recommend that children have their first dental examination as soon as their first tooth arrives and definitely before the conclusion of their first birthday.

How many check-ups should my child have per year?

We recommend your child to visit a dentist every 6 months – in order to foresee any future problems with cavities and alignment. Furthermore, each child might have different needs based on the shape and growth of the teeth.

If my child has aches and pain with their teeth, what should I do?

The first step is to call your dentist immediately and describe what is occurring. Furthermore you may clean the aching area with warm salt water and then apply a cold compress on the face if there is swelling. Some doctors may recommend children’s acetaminophen to lower the pain.

Childrens Dentist Newport Beach Discusses Tooth Decay

Adults, teens, and especially children may have difficulties with tooth decay or cavities. Tooth decay occurs when plaque (bacteria) appears on your teeth and begins to stick on the enamel of the tooth (outer film). Foods that are high in sugars/starches form bacteria perpetrating the enamel of your teeth. If the plaque remains on the tooth, the enamel will be penetrated and will cause a cavity.

Image Dental outlines step you can take to avoid tooth decay/cavities.

• Brushing teeth by using ADA approved toothpaste
• Flossing after every meal.
• Maintaining a diet that is healthy and low in sugars.
• Asking your dentist questions about the best preventive methods.
• Schedule regular comprehensive cleanings and x rays with your dentist.
