Children's Tooth Decay

Why are children's teeth so Susceptible to decay?

Children are at risk of tooth decay because their enamel is much softer and thinner on their baby teeth than it would be on adult teeth. Taking care of children’s teeth early on will make sure their adult teeth grow into the correct position and stay healthy. Decay is caused by a breakdown of enamel by bacteria feeding on leftover particles from foods such as cereals, candy, and bread and beverages such as juice and milk. If proper oral health care is not maintained, cavities will eventually start to form. 

What are the signs of tooth decay in children?

When a child starts to develop tooth decay, you may see white spots forming on the surface of their teeth. As time goes on the white spots could turn into light brown spots which will indicate early stages of cavity growth. If a cavity develops, the hole will need to be cleaned out and filled. In order to prevent tooth decay from happening, start brushing your child’s teeth with fluoride toothpaste as soon as the first tooth appears and make sure to limit sticky and sugary foods. 

Children's oral habits

Why are oral habits so important for children?

As soon as your child’s first tooth comes in, they become at risk for tooth decay. By the time they reach 3-years-old, they will have 20 baby teeth that need to be taken care of properly. Until your child is able to properly brush their own teeth, you should be brushing them twice daily with a pea size amount of fluoride toothpaste as well as flossing. It is important to get your child used to going to the dentist as early as possible so future apprehensions don’t arise. 

What are bad habits that children have?

In order for your child’s adult teeth to grow in the proper position, there are a couple of habits to look out for and help break. The first bad habit we see is poor oral hygiene. It is easy for a child to forget to brush their teeth after a long day of school and homework but in order to reduce their risks of developing cavities and decay, reminding them to brush their teeth is crucial. Getting them hooked on a good regime will make brushing and flossing much easier for them as they grow older. We also see many cases of thumb sucking that lead to buck teeth, bite problems, and misalignment. Though this may seem like a natural coping mechanism, once their adult teeth begin to grow in, this habit could completely change their jaw bone structure and will result in time and money spent on future orthodontic care.

Providing complete, comprehensive dental care is at the forefront of our minds. We specialize in treating all patients, including those with special needs. If your child is unable to regularly visit the dentist because of an injury, or has a disability that prevents them from seeing a regular dentist, we can help.
