Toddler Tooth Care – From Pacifiers to Pediatric Dentists

dca-blog_thumb-sucking-cute-girl

When your toddler has developed all of his or her baby teeth, it’s a perfect time to start teaching the basics of good oral care. Your child’s primary teeth are important for maintaining proper spacing in the mouth so that permanent teeth can erupt normally. To prevent early tooth decay and premature tooth loss, pediatric dentists recommend making a dental appointment when your child is about one year old. Kids dentists can detect and manage early dental decay to help preserve baby teeth. Your child’s first dental visit may be scary, but experienced pediatric dentists know how to make it easier. 



Find an Affordable Family DentistryExpert


You may be tempted to take your child to your own family dentist, but it’s best to choose a pediatric dentist instead. Your dentist can help you find a kid-friendly provider in your area. Another way to find kids dentists is to ask friends, relatives, and other parents for recommendations. You may also contact the American Dental Association or the American Academy of Pediatric Dentists for assistance with affordable family dentistry options. When choosing a dentist for your child, look for a provider who allows you to remain in the exam room throughout the visit.

Dental Care Tips from Pediatric Dentists

  • Help your child with brushing and flossing until he or she is about eight years old.
  • Use a soft-bristled, kid-size toothbrush, and replace it every three months.
  • If your child cannot brush, instruct him or her to rinse with water to remove food particles and dilute sugars.
  • Never let your child fall asleep with a bottle of milk or juice in his mouth. The constant exposure to sugars can erode teeth.
  • Pediatric dentists recommend stopping the use of a pacifier as soon as possible because it can affect the development of your child’s teeth and jaw.
  • Have toddlers brush after eating breakfast and before going to bed.
  • Avoid sweet and starchy snacks; these increase the risk of tooth decay.
