    How to Take Care of Your Child’s Teeth?

    How to Take Care of Your Child’s Teeth?

    Begin daily brushing as soon as the child’s first tooth erupts. A pea-size amount of fluoride toothpaste can be used after the child is old enough not to swallow it. By age 4 or 5, children should be able to brush their own teeth twice a day with supervision until about age seven to make sure they are doing a thorough job. However, each child is different. Your dentist can help you determine whether the child has the skill level to brush properly.

    Proper brushing removes plaque from the inner, outer and chewing surfaces. When teaching children to brush, place toothbrush at a 45 degree angle; start along gum line with a soft bristle brush in a gentle circular motion. Brush the outer surfaces of each tooth, upper and lower. Repeat the same method on the inside surfaces and chewing surfaces of all the teeth. Finish by brushing the tongue to help freshen breath and remove bacteria.

    Does Your Child Grind His Teeth At Night?

    Does Your Child Grind His Teeth At Night?

    Answer: Parents are often concerned about the nocturnal grinding of teeth (bruxism). Often, the first indication is the noise created by the child grinding on their teeth during sleep. Or, the parent may notice wear (teeth getting shorter) to the dentition. One theory as to the cause involves a psychological component. Stress due to a new environment, divorce, changes at school; etc. can influence a child to grind their teeth. Another theory relates to pressure in the inner ear at night. If there are pressure changes (like in an airplane during take-off and landing when people are chewing gum, etc. to equalize pressure) the child will grind by moving his jaw to relieve this pressure.

    The majority of cases of pediatric bruxism do not require any treatment. If excessive wear of the teeth (attrition) is present, then a mouth guard (night guard) may be indicated. The negatives to a mouth guard are the possibility of choking if the appliance becomes dislodged during sleep and it may interfere with growth of the jaws. The positive is obvious by preventing wear to the primary dentition.

    The good news is most children outgrow bruxism. The grinding gets less between the ages 6-9 and children tend to stop grinding between ages 9-12. If you suspect bruxism, discuss this with your pediatrician or pediatric dentist.


    Retainers are appliances for keeping teeth in place after braces treatment completion. It is recommended to be worn at all time except when eating and brushing.

    Orthodontic retainers are custom-made devices, made usually of wires or clear plastic, that hold teeth in position after braces treatment completion. They are most often used  after dental braces treatment completion  to hold teeth in position while assisting the adjustment of the surrounding gums to changes in the bone. Most patients are required to wear their retainers  every night at first, with many also being directed to wear them during the day  at least initially.

    Brushing teeth before bedtime

    Brushing teeth before going to bed is important because while we are sleeping, our organs need rest, too, including salivary glands which will produce less saliva when sleeping. The saliva will be thicker, so if we do not brush before going to bed, the bacteria inside the oral cavity will use food debris, especially, carbohydrate, which still remains in the mouth, and turns to acid or toxin. Reduced saliva can make less self-cleansing inside the mouth, and that will increase the amount of acid in the mouth. When teeth are in the acid environment, there are higher risks of having cavities.
