Common Dental Issues in Children

Early Childhood Cavities: Childhood cavities are a common dental issue in young children, caused by prolonged exposure to sugary liquids, such as juice or milk, that coat the teeth and cause bacteria to increase and produce acids that attack the enamel.

Tooth Decay: Tooth decay is caused by plaque, a sticky film of food particles and bacteria that forms on the tooth surface. Plaque acids can create cavities or holes in the teeth, which can cause pain, sensitivity, and infection. Tooth decay can be prevented by brushing twice a day, flossing daily, using fluoride toothpaste, and visiting the dentist regularly.

Thumb Sucking: This natural reflex helps babies soothe themselves and feel secure. However, if thumb sucking continues above the age of 4 or 5, it can affect the alignment of the teeth and the shape of the jaw in children. It can cause an open bite, an overbite, or a crossbite, which can interfere with breathing, speaking, and chewing. Moreover, it can also affect the child’s social interactions and self-esteem.

Malocclusion: Malocclusion is the term for a bad bite or misalignment of the jaws and teeth. It can be caused by genetic factors, environmental factors or habits such as tongue thrusting or thumb sucking. It can affect the appearance of the face, the function of the jaws and teeth, and the health of the bones and gums. Moreover, It can increase the risk of gum disease, tooth decay, and temporomandibular joint disorders (TMJ). It can be corrected by orthodontic treatment, such as clear aligners or braces.

Dental Trauma: It is any injury to the teeth or surrounding tissues caused by falls, accidents, violence, or sports. It can result in cracked, chipped, broken, or knocked-out teeth, as well as damage to the gums, jawbone, tongue, or lips. It can cause bleeding, pain, infection, and cosmetic issues. It requires immediate attention from an emergency room doctor or dentist.

Teething: Teething is the process of teeth emerging through the gums in toddlers and infants. Teething usually starts around 6 months of age and lasts until about 3 years of age. Teething can cause irritability, discomfort, chewing, drooling, a mild fever, and gum swelling. It does not cause vomiting, diarrhea, high fever, or a rash.

What is Kids Dentistry?

Kids dentistry is also referred to as pediatric dentistry. It is a specialised branch of dentistry that concentrates on providing oral healthcare to children, infants, and adolescents. Kids dentists offer preventive dental care, such as fluoride, cleaning, and sealants, as well as guidance to children on how to maintain good oral habits and hygiene.

What are the Pediatric Dental Procedures in BM Cosmetic?

BM Cosmetic’s Pediatric dentists specialise in offering dental care to kids. Here are the common dental procedures:

  • Cleanings and Exams: This is a routine procedure where the dentist cleans the child’s teeth and examines them for any signs of cavities or other dental problems. It’s recommended that children have a dental check up every six months.
  • Fluoride Treatments: This treatment will prevent tooth decay. The dentist can apply fluoride directly to a child’s teeth to strengthen them and reduce the risk of cavities.
  • Sealants: A dental sealant is a thin protective layer which is applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth. This can prevent cavities from forming in the pits and fissures of the molars.
  • Filings: When a child has a cavity, the dentist will extract the decayed portion of the tooth and fill it with a filling material to restore the tooth to its normal function.
  • Extractions: Sometimes, a tooth may need to be removed if it’s too damaged to save. This is done under anaesthesia, and the child will not feel any pain.
  • Root Canals: If the inner part of a teeth, known as the pulp, gets infected or injured, a pediatric dentist may perform a root canal treatment to take out the damaged pulp and save the tooth.
  • Crowns: If a tooth is badly damaged or decayed, a crown may be placed over it. For kids, this can often be a temporary solution until their permanent teeth come in.
  • Bridges: If a child loses a tooth, a bridge can be used to replace it. This is a device that’s anchored to the surrounding teeth and holds a replacement tooth in place.
  • Orthodontics: This includes braces, retainers, and other devices that are used to correct misaligned teeth. Pediatric dentists can assess if a child needs orthodontic treatment and provide appropriate referrals or treatments.
