Signs Your Child May Have a Dental Problem
Posted on July 13th, 2020
Examining your child’s mouth isn’t easy! Their bone structure is still developing, and they might have difficulty opening wide—if they don’t, you’ll probably need a flashlight and a dental mirror for examination.
Your Bellevue dentist, Dr. Mack and Dr. Wachter is equipped with a comfortable dental chair for them to lean back in, an illuminating overhead light, intraoral cameras, and x-ray imaging that helps us get an accurate picture of the condition of their teeth, gums, jawbone, and tongue.
However, if your child is experiencing any dental issue, such as gum disease, a tongue tie, or tooth decay, there are telltale signs you’ll notice, such as your little one avoiding eating or drinking because of sensitive teeth.
Young children may not be able to verbally express that they’re experiencing pain, but if they’re drooling, rubbing their face, having trouble sleeping, or even acting out angrily, bringing them to Family Dentistry of Bellevue is a good idea. We can talk more with you about the most common dental symptoms that indicate trouble and explains potential causes.
If you’re concerned for any reason about your child’s dental health, don’t hesitate to contact us! We’re here to ensure your little one’s smile doesn’t cause them pain.
