    Definitely take her to the dentist. I started taking my son at 12mos when he had 2 teeth pa lang.

    I have a question about silver caps.

    My son is only 3 pero nasisira na ngipin niya. So that's what his dentist advised, silver caps daw on his 4front teeth sa taas. Kaso angmahal pala. Tinutoothbrush ko everynight pero sa araw kasi baka hindi nila siya mapilit. Mahilig din siya sa sweets, at nagbo-bottlefeeding pa.

    ito na lang ba talaga makakapag-save sa teeth niya? any advice mommies? i dont have much info din about silver caps mismo... like pros and cons?
  • workingmomworkingmom Member PExer
    medyo mahal nga ang silver caps. according to our dentist, pag sira na ang teeth advisable na lagyan ng silver caps. para buo pa rin tingnan ung teeth and another is magkaroon ng guide ung permanent teeth pag lumabas na. *okay*

    ^We actually already have a thread dedicated to baby teeth ( please click the link ) :) : Baby's teeth

    An ounce of prevention is certainly better than a pound of cure. Malaki ang ating matitipid kung bata pa lang ay sanay na ang mga baby na nililinis ang bibig nila. This is so that cleaning their mouth will become second nature to them.

    Bottle-feeding has to stop completely by 1 1/2 to 2 years old. Para kasing pinarurusahan ang bata kapag nagsakitan ipin nila. Napasensitive pa naman ng mga bibig ng mga bata. By two, they have to start drinking from a training cup.

    Cleaning the mouth starts as early as possible. After the very first feeding, the mouth should be wiped with a clean piece of cloth that is made damp with sterile water. Kahit wala pang ipin, ginagawa ito.

    Toothbrushing should start once the very first teeth come out. There are baby brushes available, to facilitate this. Kailangan yung nanay o tatay ang magtotoothbrush ng ipin nila. This will save you thousands upon thousands in dental bills. You can use the money somewhere else.

    Infections from the upper teeth can reach the eyes and the brain.

    Infections from the lower teeth can reach the throat, or worse the heart.

    i strongly believe that taking care of teeth is really really important and even if baby teeth pa, dapat inaalagaan na. i also have a difficult time when it comes to making my child brush her teeth. laging pahirapan. but i switched to flavored toothpaste of closeup and she is now very enthusiastic when it's time to brush her teeth.

    Close Up has flouride. Close Up cannot be used on babies! Babies who cannot spit should not be given toothpaste that has fluoride. Swallowing flouride toothpaste can cause flourosis , which can either lead to discoloration or even deformity of developing teeth.

    Nonfluoride toothpaste includes Sansfluo and Pigeon.

    Once kids know how to spit, they can use adult toothpastes that contain fluoride ( Colgate, Hapee, Pepsodent, etc.).

    I have a 9 yr old son and halos lahat ng ngipin nya at milk teeth pa. sabi ng dentist, kelangan na daw bunutin kasi di raw makalabas ang mga permanent teeth kaso lang hindi mabunutan kasi takot na takot ang bata. any advise kung pano sya mabunutan? anong strategy nyo? kahit anong pilit ko, kahit na anong blackmail na bibilhin as reward para magpabunot e ayaw pa, umiiyak talaga sya..natatakot =) worry ko kasi ang laki na nya tapos halos di pa napapalitan mga ngipin nya. kusa bang naalis ang mga ngipin kahit na hindi bunutin?

    ^ You can bring your son to either the Philippine Children's Medical Center or the Pediatric Dental Center. Please google their respective websites and call their landlines for inquiries. You can choose to have your son treated under either conscious sedation or general anesthesia.

    Thank you for the information. But base on your experience does kids above 5 yeas of age can't spit out the toothpaste completely?
  • Hi. My child's pediatric dentist is Dr. Pam Fabie. She's really a kid- friendly so no worries about your kid. She does Pediatric treatments. Visit her at her clinique in Timog Ave., Quezon City. You can also visit her website http://www.dentalbracesphilippines.com/.

    Have a question po. My daughter is now 5 years old. Hndi pa sya nabubungi. Pero meron nang tooth sa ibaba na umuuga. Normal *** po ba un? Knakabahan ako kasi sabi nila dpat 7 years old dapat magstart na my umuga sa ngipin ng bata.. Thanks po.
  • smilewarriorsmilewarrior Moderator PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐
    ^ It's okay. :) Normally, mas maaga lumalabas ang permanent teeth ng babae kaysa sa lalake. Baka naman malapit na kasi siyang mag 6 years old.

    Medyo mahirap kunan ng peri-apical x-ray ang ibabang ipin ng mga bata. You can have a panoramic x-ray taken , just to be sure na may permanent teeth nang kasunod yung umuugang ipin.
  • yuwyyuwy Member PExer
    hello po ask ko din po un sa anak ko 6 yrs.old na sya,hindi ko napansin na umuga na *** ngipin nya.napansn k nalang na parang may maliit na ngipin na tumubo sa likod,sa may gums nya.palagay ko po permanent teeth na nya yun.pano po kayang mangyayari sa ngipin nya maiiayos paba ito?
  • smilewarriorsmilewarrior Moderator PEx Influencer ⭐⭐⭐

    If you have access to facebook please look for the page of the Philippine Pediatric Dental Society, Incorporated (PPDSI) , they are the mother organization of all Pediatric Dentistry practitioners in the Philippines. You can message them and they just might be able to give you referrals of practitioners near your area.


    For Muntinlupa specifically, there are Pediatric Dentists practicing at Asian Hospital and Medical Center. Abesamis Dental Clinic at Festival Mall and Dentista Inc. at Southmall also I think offers dental services for children.

    A child's first visit to a dental clinic should be either when the first baby tooth erupts (which is around 6 months old) and not later than the first birthday ( 1 year old).

    During the first visit, it's purpose is to acclimate your baby to the dental clinic setting. Usually the baby will not be placed on the dental chair. Baby's head will rest on your lap while the dentist , sitting right next to you, examines your baby's mouth.
