Through a wide variety of pediatric dentistry services, as well as adult treatments, including teeth whitening, we help our patients achieve healthy and beautiful smiles for years to come. Dr. Saini and her professional team take great care to provide the best quality care to all of our patients, especially our young ones. Here are a few signs that your child may be in need of dental treatment.
If your child complains of any a toothache or any tooth pain, he or she needs to see a dentist as soon as possible to identify the cause of the pain. Even if it goes away, the root cause of the pain must be treated to avoid bigger dental problems such as gum disease or even tooth loss.
Have you noticed any bleeding or swelling of your child’s gums? Swelling can be caused by bacteria or plaque buildup that can lead to a whole host of other problems, while bleeding gums point to inflammation. If left untreated, either of these can lead to very serious dental issues, including periodontal disease.
White spots appearing on your child’s teeth can be a sign of severe decay of the enamel. Your child should see the dentist right away to prevent the spread of decay.
Does your child complain of pain when eating or drinking something that is hot or cold? This is a sure sign that he or she has a cavity. Remember, the longer a cavity is left untreated, the more risk there is for tooth loss. The sooner you visit the dentist, the better your chances of saving the tooth and preventing other teeth from decay.
Sometimes, bad breath that doesn’t go away even after tooth brushing can indicate a serious dental problem, such as gum disease. It’s important that make an appointment with your pediatric dentist so that Dr. Saini can identify the root cause of bad breath.
Here at Mapleridge Children & Adult Dentistry, we pride ourselves in providing the highest quality dental care with a compassionate and gentle touch, all in a friendly and welcoming office environment.
