Preventing Tooth Decay in Children

Children’s baby teeth are more susceptible to cavities which can become large very quickly due to the size of baby teeth and their structure. This is why it is very important to bring your child in for regular dental visits so the dental professionals can address any problematic area before they get worse.

At a routine dental checkup, we’ll check their teeth and gums to make sure they’re in good condition. Additionally, your kid’s dentist will be able to notice early indications of health issues and give instructions on how to brush and floss effectively.

We advise the following to keep your children’s teeth healthy at all ages:
  • After each feeding, gently wipe an infant’s gums with a clean, damp towel.
  • Only provide your infant with water in a bottle or sippy cup during naptime
  • If your infant nods off while you’re feeding him or her, brush his or her teeth first.
  • Lifting your infant’s lip, check your child’s teeth for any alterations in colour, lines, or spots.
  • Before giving your children fluoride toothpaste between the ages of zero and three, consult your dentist.

Newborns & Infants Dentistry in Mississauga

A child’s primary teeth start to erupt between the ages of 6 and 9 months. These teeth support your child’s ability to eat, speak, and help the adult teeth erupt properly. Infants can have cavities just like everyone else, so it’s crucial to keep these tiny teeth clean. Make sure to brush your baby’s mouth and teeth after feeding him or her using a small toothbrush, a piece of gauze, or a moist face cloth.

The Canadian Dental Association recommends the initial appointment for your child be within 6 months of the eruption of the first tooth or by one year of age.  Bringing your child in to see the dentist before there is ever any problem with his or her teeth helps set a positive environment for your child at the dental clinic.

Toddlers & Preschoolers Dentistry in Mississauga

This is an excellent time to teach your child healthy oral hygiene practices that will help safeguard their primary teeth. Help your young children use a pea-sized amount of toothpaste to brush their teeth twice daily. Make sure your youngster does not swallow the toothpaste and spits it out. Limiting sugary foods and drinks and brushing your child’s teeth after meals can also help avoid cavities.

Change your child’s toothbrush every one to three months or shortly after an illness, and start flossing when his or her teeth are in contact. To lead by example, let your child watch you brush your teeth.

Children & Adolescents Dentistry in Mississauga

Your child’s baby teeth will start to fall out between the ages of 6 and 8 when the permanent teeth start to fill in. Except for wisdom teeth, most permanent teeth should be in place by the age of 13.Make sure your youngster flosses once and brushes their teeth at least twice a day. Eat less sugary foods to help avoid tooth decay. Reduce snacking and encourage your youngster to consume a balanced, healthy diet. In order to protect their teeth while playing sports, we also advise your youngster to wear a mouthguard when necessary.

Caring for Your Child's Teeth and Permanent Teeth

Both you and your child should be brushing your teeth twice a day, making sure to clean all exposed areas. Spend two or three minutes rubbing with a light touch and circular motions. We advise using a toothbrush with gentle bristles and switching it out every three months. To clean the areas between your teeth that your toothbrush can’t reach, use floss once each day. Excellent maintenance habits are the cornerstone of oral health.
