  1. Growing Pain or Toothache

    Has your child ever complained that their tooth hurt? We all know that children go through growing phases but sometime it it may be hard to tell the difference in growing pain and a real toothache — cavity on the rise.

    Dr. Frankel offers these steps to tell the difference:

    • Open wide…check inside their mouth to see if they have food stuck and need help flossing.
    • Teething? Molars can be painful – give your child some pain reliever to see if that helps.
    • Rinse with warm salt water and apply a cold compress to help with swelling/inflammation.
    • Stay away from sticky foods and drink plenty of water.
    • Schedule six month recare dental visits to spot small issues before they become problems.

    If your child is still complaining or having difficulty eating, call our office to get an immediate appointment!

    ABC, 1-2-3, Brush! 

    February is devoted to children’s dental health. As parents, caregivers and health professionals, we should be committed to educating children about the importance of oral health and the lifelong benefits.

    Here are some ways you can help promote dental health with your children:

     

    • Be involved in their brushing routine — brush together as a family to some music! 
    • Encourage healthy eating and drinking — offer water with nutritious snacks.

    • Take your child to the dentist for their checkups and cleanings.

    • Play dentist at home and talk about what happens at their visit!

    • Enjoy their smile. Talk about the importance of a beautiful, healthy smile. Take a photo. Put it where they can see it.

    • Teach them about the importance of a healthy mouth and healthy body.
