Dental 4 Less – Dental Cleanings and Check Ups for Your Kids 

It is important to under stand that brushing and flossing still can not thoroughly get every nook and cranny. So even though you may have given your child all the tools necessary for brushing and flossing their teeth, having a dentist look at your child’s teeth is recommended because dentists have additional tools which will allow them to clean every corner of your child’s mouth. This is also another chance that your child will have to understand the importance of good oral hygiene.

Dental 4 Less – Brushing Your Teeth Before Bed 

Brushing your teeth before bed is one of the most important children’s dental care tip for your child. When your child is young, make sure to either brush his/her teeth for them or supervise as it can be hard to brush correctly without practice.

The goal for this is to make brushing before bed part of the routine of dental care for children and encourage them to continue it throughout their life. If they are hesitant about brushing, you could try making it a family routine that you all do together.

Dental 4 Less – Thinking a Head When Buying A PPO Dental Insurance Plan 

Dental PPO plans are a great way to be able to stay with or choose your own dentist.  They will normally provide benefits for both in network providers as well as out of network providers.  However it is important to think a head when buying dental PPO plans as they often come with limitations such as waiting periods.   

Dental PPO insurance plans are not the type of insurance plans you would buy at the time of dental issues.  Waiting for larger dental care needs before buying dental insurance is not to your advantage with a dental PPO plan due to their waiting periods. 

Many PPO plans have waiting periods up to six months for basic services such as a filling and up to twelve months for major services such as a crown. Therefore if staying with your current family dentist is important think about getting a dental PPO plan now in order to maintain your current preventive needs and burn down any long term waiting periods before such needs arrives.

Dental 4 Less – Starting Your Child Dental Care Early

Often times parents believe that children’s dental care does not really begin until their first tooth appears. However that would be incorrect. By brushing your child’s gums at a young age, before there are any signs of their first tooth, will help prevent the formation of bacteria on your child’s gums and will also help both you and your child set a routine of oral hygiene that can last for the rest of their life. Just make sure to brush the gums with a soft toothbrush as using a harsher one may damage the baby’s gums.

Dental 4 Less – Avoid Passing Your Dental Fears to Your Child.

If you feel anxious about a visit to a dental professional, do your best not to convey your feelings to your child. This is very important for emotional well-being. Encourage your child to discuss any fears he/she might have about visiting a dentist, but do not put any new fears into his/her head. It is a good rule of thumb not to mention the words “hurt” or “pain” as it raises a possibility he/she might not have thought of.

Preventing Cavities with Dental Sealants – Dental 4 Less

Ask your dentist about dental sealants and fluoride applications to help protect your child’s teeth. Sealants can prevent food from getting stuck in the tiny grooves on the chewing surfaces and topical fluoride will strengthen the enamel against decay. An once of prevention can be well worth the cure. Poor preventive dental care and at home dental habits will cause larger more costly dental needs in the future.

Dental 4 Less – Avoiding Sugar

Did you know that if your child eat sugary snacks, it will take the saliva a minimum of 30 minutes to neutralize the acidity that is created by decay-producing bacteria. A sugary snack every hour can mean your child’s mouth is always acid, increasing the chances for tooth decay.

Reply: You can start to use toothpaste that does not have fluoride in it. However you should not use toothpaste with fluoride until your baby knows how to spit.  Normally around the age of two.

Why Should my Child See a Pediatric Dentist – Dental 4 Less

For the same reason you do not take your child to your own physician, you take him/her to a pediatrician. Children are not miniature adults. Their bodies are very different, and so are their teeth. A pediatric dentist has expertise in those differences.

When Should Children Get Their First Set of Dental X-Ray?

There are no set rules for when a child should have their first set of dental X-rays. Some children who may be at higher risk for dental problems (for example, those prone to baby bottle tooth decay or those with cleft lip/palate) should have X-rays taken earlier than others.

Usually, most children will have had X-rays taken by the age of 5 or 6. As children begin to get their adult teeth around the age of 6, X-rays play an important role in helping your dentist to see if all of the adult teeth are growing in the jaw, to look for bite problems, and to determine if teeth are clean and healthy.

I am already being told that I should have taking sooner.  So now I want to have some idea as to what is the first dental would be like.  What dose the dentist do? What kind of questions should I ask? Any advice would help.

If indicated, the dentist or hygienist will clean any teeth and assess the need for fluoride. He or she will also educate parents about oral health care basics for children and discuss dental developmental issues and answer any questions.

Do You Really Need to Fix Cavities in Baby Teeth.

Question: My son is four and I took him to the dentist and was told he had three cavities in his baby teeth.  He said that I will need to get them filled.  I told him I would talk it over with my husband.  The thing is I am a single mom, with no dental insurance. Is there really any need to have the dentist do a filling on his baby teeth?  Given enough time his baby teeth are just going to fall out anyway.  I do not see the point when I don’t have the extra money.   

Reply: If the cost of dental services are too much then buy dental insurance. If not for you at least for your baby. Try checking out the plans this website has to offer. All you have to do is enter your zip code at the top of the screen in order to pull up all our dental insurance plan options.   As for your questions about fixing or not fixing your son fillings. Here are some of the things that may happen to your son if you do nothing. It is up to you to decide if it is still worth the risk. 

1) The tooth decay will only get worse 
2) If your sons teeth are not now, they may over time start causing him pain. Having his teeth hurt whenever he is eating or drinking or just plain sleeping.
3) let the cavity or cavities get big enough he may start having his baby teeth fall out too early. Which makes the risk higher for his adult teeth to come in incorrectly.  
4) If your son cavities go untreated, he may get an abscess causing him to have an infection in his mouth and face. If that happens you run the risk of not only having his dental health affected but his over all health effected as well.  
5) Keep in mind that on average kids start to loss there baby teeth around the age of six. A lot can happen in two years. By doing nothing now may indeed cost you more money latter.

Dental 4 Less – Should I add my Baby to my Dental Insurance

Question: I just had a baby girl.  I have already added her to my health insurance policy that I receive though work.  I am wondering however,  just when I need to add her to my dental insurance?  Open enrollment comes up again in March. 

Answer: Do you have any other children? If so, then in theory you may already have a family plan for your dental. Generally speaking dental insurance does not go up in cost whether you have one child or two. Check with you dental insurance provider and confirm if this is the case for you. If so you might as well add her now.

Rotten Baby Teeth – Dental 4 Less

When a baby cut a tooth can that tooth come through rotten?   My friend baby is just getting her teeth in and her teeth are already getting bad . She does not know why this is happening. Can her baby just be born with bad teeth?  If so can they be fixed. ?  Just wanting to be able to get her some information that may be helpful to her. 

Answer: You may want to suggest to your friend to see a pediatric dentist. A pediatric dentist specialize in baby dental care. She may want to check with the dentist to see if the baby has baby bottle tooth decay(BBTD). A toddler can develop BBTD when the baby has prolonged contact with almost any liquid other than water.  

Things your friend my want to avoid is letting her baby sleep with a baby bottle, or letting the child have a baby bottle when she is not feeding. These are examples of how a baby can get BBTD. Baby bottle tooth decay is one way for a baby to have bad or rotten teeth. However, check with the dentist to confirm. 

Another reason for bad baby teeth can be that the teeth do not have the enamel that would normally protect the teeth from decay. This too is something your friend can ask her dentist about. If that is a causing factor see about having sealants. Sealant would then help protect the teeth in question.

Dental 4 Less – Treatment for Tooth Decay in Toddlers

Once a child has developed tooth decay, he/she will require dental work. Fillings may be used to correct smaller cavities, and a full crown may be needed if the damage is extensive. This will prevent the bacteria from spreading.    

A tooth that has decay throughout may have to be extracted because the bacteria can cause the secondary, or adult teeth, to develop abnormally. Pitting or staining in the adult teeth may occur if decay is severe enough in the primary teeth.
