FAQs about Pediatric Dentistry

Do I need to brush my children's teeth? 
Yes. Children develop plaque just as adults do, and it must be removed on a daily basis to avoid tooth decay. Use a soft-bristled toothbrush that will fit into your child's mouth at least once a day at first when they are very young, and at least twice a day by the time most of the baby teeth have erupted.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first time? 
You should schedule an appointment around your son or daughter’s first birthday so that we can check for good oral hygiene, cavities, and any developmental or congenital abnormalities.
If baby teeth eventually fall out, why are they important?
Baby teeth are very important because they serve many of the same purposes of adult teeth, such as tearing and chewing food and helping the child speak properly. Additionally, they hold the place for adult teeth. If baby teeth fall out prematurely, an appliance called a space maintainer is needed to prevent the remaining teeth from shifting into the space of the lost tooth.

How do thumb-sucking and pacifier habits harm teeth?
There is not much difference between the two habits, and they are only a problem if the baby teeth start to get displaced or if the habit continues after the adult teeth have erupted.
