Usually child’s upper front teeth falls between the age of 6-8 years..so don’t worry her front teeth ( incisors ) will fall soon....yellow colour of teeth can be due to various reasons some iron supplements also cause yellow to brown discolouration or if there is history of usage of tetracycline group of drugs during pregnancy. Usually some kids need extra motivation for brushing...there are various videos on you tube which you can show child to motivate her... This would be helpful 2020-04-08 14:11:10

If it is an extrinsic deposit it will go with proper brushing...make sure to brush child’s teeth with child specific tooth paste twice daily. 2020-04-08 14:19:02

Child should not bite on anything from front teeth as it is root canal treated tooth so there are chances some portion of tooth may chip off..for example if you are giving an apple cut them into pieces rather than giving the whole apple...upper permanent front teeth usually comes anytime between 6-8 years of age 2020-04-08 14:24:54

You need to get your child to a braces specialist or orthodontist...speacialist can see the reason for developing malocclusion ...usually braces treatment for straightening is done around 10 years of age but child’s recommended age for first braces check up is 7 years.... 2020-04-08 14:29:53

Regular brushing flossing and using mouth wash (twice daily )can prevent tooth decay to a great extent..also every 6 months get a professional cleaning or scaling done from a dentist 2020-04-08 14:33:46

Sometimes the natural colour of teeth is slightly yellow...also make sure she is not having prepacked coloured juices...yellow soft deposit layer is formed ( plaque ) on child’s teeth almost everyday which can be removed by proper brushing...if yellowishness is still there take her for a Dental routine check up ... 2020-04-08 14:39:00

Yes child has to chew teeth properly otherwise there won’t be proper digestion of food...give child raw food like apple carrot n ask child to chew it from both sides...u can eat with your child and show him...make it a fun activity...by showing some videos on importance of chewing food 2020-04-08 14:53:33

This can be due to two reasons One there can be an underlying problem in stomach like acid reflux due to which there is bad breath in morning Second improper brushing Sometimes we are just brushing outside surface not the inner surface So food deposits remain n there is fowl smell...use mouth wash for few days and brush and floss nicely...you can check you tube videos for the same 2020-04-08 15:02:38
