The most common complaint we hear from our patients is of a toothache. Many parents instinctively assume that a toothache means their child has tooth decay or a dental cavity. However, there are a number of reasons why your child may be experiencing tooth pain, most of which are avoidable.
Here at Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry, we know that it’s important that our patients and their parents are educated about the possible dental problems that can occur and how to avoid and treat these issues. Below are a few common causes of childhood toothaches and how you can help your children to avoid them:
The best way for you to make sure your child has healthy teeth is by helping him or her maintain good oral hygiene habits. This should include brushing at least twice a day for two minutes at a time, flossing every day, and bringing your child in for a dental checkup and an exam every six months.
If your child is experiencing tooth pain, please don’t hesitate to contact Piedmont Pediatric Dentistry to make an appointment. Our child’s dental office is located here in Greensboro, North Carolina.
