If your child is complaining of tooth pain, it may be due to the new eruption of teeth, a cavity, or from brushing too hard. Although adults are more likely to experience tooth sensitivity, it can be a problem for children too. Because dental appointments are crucial during a child’s tooth development, it’s important to visit us at Kidz Connextion where we will use fluoride treatments to reduce sensitivity.
Tooth sensitivity can make it difficult to drink hot and cold beverages and this can especially be frustrating for a child. If your child has sensitive teeth because of a cavity, in-office fluoride treatments are beneficial in strengthening tooth enamel and lower one’s risk for decay. Additionally, parents should encourage proper oral care habits and be sure that your child brushes at least twice a day for two minutes and flosses at least once a day.
