Many parents are surprised to learn that their child needs dental care from a very young age. To protect your child’s dental health, discover the answers to these dental care questions.

  1. What’s the best way to clean a young child’s teeth?
    According to pediatric dentists, parents should use a small soft-bristled toothbrush to gently remove any food, plaque, and debris in the child’s mouth that can lead to dental decay.
  1. How often should a child’s teeth be brushed?
    Parents should gently brush a child’s teeth at least twice a day, preferably in the morning and at bedtime. Pediatric dentists say a child may need more frequent brushing, depending on their oral health needs.
  1. How frequently should a child’s teeth be flossed?
    The child’s emerging teeth should be flossed at least once a day. Ask your pediatric dentist for tips on flossing a child’s teeth.
  1. Is it a problem if a child sucks their thumb or uses a pacifier?
    These habits are usually fine because the child will outgrow them. They only become a problem if they continue past age three. If the child won’t halt these habits, your pediatric dental clinic should be able to offer suggestions for stopping them.
  1. What is the best way to handle a child’s toothache?
    The first thing to do is rinse the sore area with warm, salted water. Then, put a cold compress on their face to reduce swelling. Help ease the ache by giving the child acetaminophen for any pain. Most importantly, take your child to a pediatric dentistry clinic as quickly as possible for treatment.
  1. How often should a child be taken to a pediatric dentistry clinic?
    Children should go to a pediatric dental clinic for check-ups every six months to examine their dental development, prevent tooth decay, and help them avoid other dental problems. Since each child has different dental health needs, the pediatric dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
