Prevention is the best way to go!!!
    good day

    Mom/Dad It's always best to bring your babies, toddlers, kids and teens to a pediatric dentist for a 1st dental visit or a dental check up, since PDs are trained to handle children from 6 months to 18 years old...yup don't be surprised cause it's stage of growing up has specific issues that we PDs have to address to the patients and to their parents not just how to brush your teeth properly... Take your babies to a pediatric dentist just like taking them to your baby's pediatrician; PDs are pediatricians of the oral cavity including the growth and development of the face...
    Good day

    good day and I hope parents will be more aware that there are dentists specifically trained to take care the general oral health of infants, toddlers, kids and teens called pediatric dentist. The profession is totally different from a general dental practice.

    ^^ how about if bulok na yung teeth ng bata? pano po sila mabubunutan if pudpod na yung ipin? wala kc kaming idea na may pediatric dentist pala until recently lang nang mapanood ko sa tv. naaawa ako sa nephew ko who just turned 6 yesterday kasi bago sila umalis for dubai last jan. 1, sabi nya masakit daw ipin nya dahil bulok na as in lahat talaga ng teeth nya bulok pag uwi nya next year balak ko sya dalhin sa pediatric dentist. gwapo kasi yung bata, nakakasira lang yung bulok na ipin.

    ^May I please ask, how old was your nephew when he stopped bottle-feeding?

    Does he still bottle-feed?

    ^ breast fed po sya for 1 yr then nag-bottle na until 2-3 yrs old na sya. sa milk nga po nasira yung ipin kasi hindi sya mahilig sa candies at chocolates. ang iniisip ko lang kc kung pano matatanggal yung pudpod na ipin? baka masaktan yung bata?

    mod, pardon my ignorance di ko pa kasi na-experience mabunutan ng ipin at wala akong idea kung masakit ba sya or hindi. pero syempre ayoko masaktan yung bata kaya ask ko sana if "no pain" ba yung gagawin sa kanyang treatment?

    I see. Bottle-feeding should be stopped by 1/2 to 2 years old. By 2 years old, a baby is supposed to drink milk from a cup, even a training cup/sippy cup will do.

    It is when babies are made to sleep with a bottle-filled with milk that the upper front baby teeth get destroyed with tooth decay.

    Milk is not bad per se, as even adults need to drink milk, but sleeping with mouth filled with milk is detrimental to the teeth. The mouth should be immaculately clean prior to sleeping (this applies to babies and adults).

    With the help of local anesthesia, the procedure of removing baby teeth is made tolerable. The tricky part is the delivery/placement of the local anesthesia.

    Take note of how your nephew reacts to vaccination shots given by his pediatrician. If he just cries a bit then can be made to immediately smile afterwards, most likely he'll be able to tolerate dental anesthesia (which also involves injections) well. If he reacts violently to vaccination shots ( as unfortunately, some babies do), you may have to consider the use of conscious sedation or even general anesthesia (which will help make the procedure tolerable for him).

    The use of either conscious sedation and general anesthesia will imply added expenses on your part. smile4kids can better explain this (as he's a pediatric dentist).

    Good luck.

    my son had his first teeth at 3months old. and now his turning 2yrs old this yr pero parang nabubulok na ipin nya. he still drinks milk from the bottle and even in the middle of the night. im worried about his teeth kasi aga tumubo okay lang ba yun kasi may mga cavities na sya especially his front teeth. what can a pediatric dentist do to his teeth if ever?

  12. #292
    ^Hello. He needs to stop bottle feeding immediately. He needs to start drinking from a cup (even a training cup). The transition won't be easy, but with patience and perseverance you'll eventually get him to drink from a cup.

    Most likely, his front teeth will be x-rayed. If they can be filled / pastahan (since he'll be needing his upper front baby teeth till he's about 6 to 7 years old), they's be filled. If not, the other options are root canal ( there's a special root canal procedure for baby teeth) or removal (bunot).

    Not too familiar with xylitol, but PPDSI (Philippine Pediatric Dental Society, Inc. ) endorses it's use. I guess it's safe.

    Xylitol is a sugar substitute that supposedly can reduce the risk of dental caries.

    Thank you mod! i hope my brother can find a less expensive pediatic dentist in dubai. at the kid's age of 6 anytime yata pwede na sya tubuan ng permanent teeth. baka kasi maging sungki if di pa sya mabunutan agad. and of course, masakit daw yung bagang nya kaya we want to seek remedy. actually we already asked before the opinion of a dentist (dentist ng mga adults) kung ano pwedeng gawin sa ipin ng bata. the dentist said na hayaan lang daw! haayyy, buti nalang may PEX!

    thanks again

    ^You're welcome .

    Oo nga. Importante talaga ang baby teeth. Hindi dapat hayaan.

  17. #297
    It's true baby teeth are just as important as permanent teeth for many reasons...It's true to say that the way you take care of your baby teeth is a reflection of how the permanent teeth will look like eventually. Too sad to hear that a dentist suggested to just leave infected teeth in the child's mouth. There are many ways of treating rampant caries on children and our goal as dentists/doctors is to remove infection in the child's system cause infection and complicate matters and can even cause death... Did you know that leaving infection (cavities) in a child's mouth for a long period of time is a form of child neglect/abuse and is punishable by law in the US... imagine the Philippines has a far more serious problem with regards to dental caries and oral infections...Education is really the key to this problem

    ^ Yes doc, sinabi talaga yun ng dentist. Hayaan nalang daw kasi kusang matatanggal daw yun. Kaya binilhan nalang ng drops yung bata ( I don't know the name pero yung malakas ang amoy) to ease the pain. Hindi rin ako makapaniwala buti nalang napanood ko recently sa TV na may mga dentist pala for babies and toddlers. And thanks to PEX, dami ko napulot dito. At least kung ako naman ang magkaka-anak, alam ko na gagawin ko.

    Good for you .

    Life would be so much easier (and somewhat cheaper) without tooth decay. For children in particular, avoiding dental cavities is truly a blessing.
