Frequently Asked Questions

Is a Pediatric Dentist necessary?

If your child is suffering from serious dental problems….it is always advised to seek help and treatment from a dentist trained in treating young patients. While most problems can be treated by general dentists- some advanced or complex issues require specialised care and treatment.

How do I prepare my child for the first dental visit??
  • By staying positive… Parents can sometimes transfer their fear or dental anxiety to their children.
  • Use positive reinforcement
  • Reading books or watching videos on dental visits
  • Playing games and they can always bring their favourite toys or books while visiting us…
If my child gets a toothache- what should I do??

To comfort your child , rinse your child’s mouth with warm salt water and apply cold compress or ice wrapped in a cloth on your child’s face – if it is swollen. Do not put heat on the sore area and consult your dentist immediately.

What should I do if my child knocks out a permanent tooth?

Firstly, remain calm. If you are able to find the tooth – hold the tooth by the crown and not by the root. Replace the tooth in the socket and hold it in place with a clean gauze or washcloth. If you can’t put the tooth back in the socket, place the tooth in a clean container with milk and take your child and the container immediately to the dentist. There always better chance of saving the tooth when we are able to respond quickly.

What is baby bottle tooth decay and how can I prevent it??

Baby bottle tooth decay otherwise known as Nursing bottle caries occurs as a result of prolonged nursing when the child goes to sleep while breast- feeding and/or bottle feeding.

While the child is sleeping the saliva flow is reduced and this diminishes the natural cleansing of the mouth. Avoid nursing children to sleep and avoid anything but water in their bottle

Encourage your child to drink from their cup as they approach their first birthday and make sure they are weaned from the bottle at 12-14months of age.

When should my child start using toothpaste??

Do not use fluoridated toothpaste until the age of 3 and make sure to brush your child’s teeth with water and soft bristled toothbrush. After 3 years … supervise their brushing and do not use more than a pea -sized amount of toothpaste.
