  • Toothaches In Children: When to go to the dentist

[vc_row][vc_column][vc_column_text]When your child complains of tooth pain, you should always take the symptoms seriously and schedule an appointment with the dentist as soon as possible. Especially if they experience toothache while eating or drinking cold/hot beverages. A hole or chip in the tooth is usually responsible for these complaints. Other causes of toothache in children are new teeth coming through the gums, loose teeth, or mouth sores.

Common causes of toothaches in children

Teething: One of the most common causes of pain in the child’s mouth is the eruption of teeth. However, older children can also suffer from pain when some permanent teeth such as the wisdom teeth grow incorrectly. You can recognize an erupting new tooth by a hard protruding bump on the alveolar ridge.

Loose teeth: Loose teeth can be another reason for toothache in children. If a tooth has become very wobbly, it moves as they chew. This may cause pain in the gums.As soon as the loose tooth has fallen out, the symptoms should go away. If a loose tooth does not fall out on its own or cannot be easilypulled out, our experienced dentists can help remove it painlessly.

Tooth decay: Tooth decay is caused by bacteria that tend to attack milk teeth. To create a hole, caries bacteria need time and food (e.g., sugar). That is why learning good oral hygiene routines is very important for children. If a hole has formed, it must also be treated in milk teeth,as they are just as painful as permanent teeth.

Baby bottle caries: A special type of caries in young children is nursing caries. Parents sometimes notice that their baby’s teeth have become brown, black, or broken. Nursing caries is especially common when the child is fedtoo many sugared drinks, goes to sleep with a milk bottle in their mouth or a pacifier is overused. If there are caries, bacteria could settle on the tips of the teeth and immediately convert the sugar into acid. This dissolves the fresh enamel of the new teeth and holes begin to appear.
