Top 10 signs that your child needs a visit to the dentist

Ma, “when I told my classmates about the yucky medicine that I am having for my tooth infection, almost everyone in the class shared that they had tasted the yucky medicine too”- This is what my daughter shared one afternoon when she got back from school and my first reaction was of relief that my daughter was not the only one with bad teeth (I know that is not an appropriate reaction) but then it got me thinking as to why this is the case and what can I do for parents who thankfully are not in the same boat as I and can avoid being in the same situation in the future.

Hi Bhavna n Dr. Bassi My son is 6. 5 yrs n fortunately has a good set of teeth Although in his molar, there is one dot of brown colour which I'm not sure if it's a start of decay. Had checked with my dentist for him, though she said it's not a concern. Also while most of the kids in his age group or younger have already started to lose their milk teeth, he has not. Is it a concern

Thanks Bhavna. MY daughter is 16 months old and she has tooth decay. upper front 4 tooth are decayed and white coating is erupted. She cant chew with those tooth. When I met dentist he suggested for filling of those by putting my daughter on general Anastasia. I am worried bcoz in such a small age putting kid under Anastasia is not good wht i feel is , Is there any other way to take care of it.

Hi Shivani,it is absolutely alright if your child has gaps in his milk teeth . in fact it ensures that his permanent teeth will not be overcrowded. it is also not necessary that the permanent teeth will have gaps just because the milk teeth have them. So you need not do anything about it at this stage. Just make sure the child has his regular dental check up .

Thanks Bhavna! We can often overlook our child's dental hygiene until it is too late. It is always important to know such facts.

If a child has gaps in the milk teeth, would the permanent teeth also come the same way? Do we need to take any measures now, or can be done later? Please let me know. Thanks
