Common Problems

Tooth Decay

  • Tooth decay, also known as dental caries or cavities, is one of the most prevalent childhood dental issues.
  • Poor oral hygiene, excessive sugar consumption, and irregular dental visits contribute to the development of cavities.
  • Cavities can cause pain, sensitivity, and difficulty eating, potentially leading to more severe complications if left untreated.

Gum Disease

  • Gingivitis and periodontitis are forms of gum disease that can affect children.
  • Poor oral hygiene, hormonal changes, and certain medical conditions can increase children's gum disease risk.
  • Symptoms may include swollen, red gums, bleeding during brushing or flossing, and bad breath.

Malocclusions

  • Malocclusions refer to misalignments of the teeth or jaws, such as overbites, underbites, and crossbites.
  • Genetic factors, thumb sucking, and prolonged pacifier use can contribute to the development of malocclusions in children.
  • Malocclusions can impact chewing, speech, and facial aesthetics, necessitating orthodontic intervention for correction.

Tooth Eruption Problems

  • Delayed or impacted tooth eruption can occur when permanent teeth do not emerge on schedule or become trapped beneath the gums.
  • Crowding, genetic factors, and abnormal tooth development can contribute to tooth eruption problems.
  • Early orthodontic evaluation and intervention may be necessary to address tooth eruption and alignment issues.

Dental Trauma

  • Accidents falls, and sports-related injuries can result in dental trauma, including chipped, cracked, or knocked-out teeth.
  • Prompt treatment is crucial following dental trauma to preserve the affected tooth and prevent further complications.
  • Mouthguards can help protect children's teeth during sports activities, reducing the risk of dental injuries.
