If a permanent tooth comes completely out of the mouth, root and all.

What is a true dental emergency?

Diet! It’s not about what they eat (within reason), but how often your child eats. Frequent snacking causes mouths to be more acidic, which is the perfect environment for bad bacteria to grow and cause cavities. I also recommend drinking water. Juice is my arch nemesis. Children are also at risk for cavities if they go to bed with a bottle. 

What is the best way to avoid cavities for my child?

No. Dental caries, the fancy term for cavities, are caused by bacteria. This means that cavities are contagious. Most children’s oral flora is passed from their mother. If mom gets cavities, it is likely the child will get them too. To decrease the spread of the bacteria that can cause cavities, we suggest avoiding sharing utensils and cups.

Everyone In My Family Has Bad Teeth. Are Cavities Genetic?

Now! It’s all about how much. From the first tooth, use a smear of toothpaste. Increase to a pea size after your child can spit.

When should I start using fluoride toothpaste?

Both the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatrics agree that a child’s first dental visit should be at the age of 1 or first tooth.

When should a child first go to the dentist?
