My daughter is 7.5m and has 4 teeth - top and bottom twos. I know there are more on the way but she keeps on grinding the teeth she has now. Any suggestions on making her stop?
FYI, he also hates it when I try to wipe his face and his hands 😖
I have a question about space maintainers. My daughter just got her baby molar removed and the dentist offered a space maintainer. The dentist was not very cathegoric about it, because my daughter's permanent molars are in alreasy. But since insurance covers it 100%, she said why not. So I don't know. Do we really need it? If your kid has it, how does it feel? Any problems related to i... More
I was told recently that my 5 year old needs one silver cap/crown over one molar. They also are highly pushing me to use nitrous gas to “sedate” him for the silver cap. I’m very hesitant to do that especially because because I dont know if I can wait longer to get it done since they are baby teeth, or if anyone’s been in similar situation and got it done and how there experience was. I’m scared... More
Hi everyone! Our first tooth finally cut through baby’s gums (though it isn’t all the way out yet). How did you introducing tooth/teeth brushing? I would like to brush her new tooth before bed to avoid decay, but I’m not sure how that will go—she normally feeds then practically falls asleep in my arms at bedtime. I’m worried that brushing her teeth will throw her off and wake her up again 🤷... More
In the past two days my two year old son would not eat because he came down with some kind of stomach bug. He is feeling better now and I can get him to eat but when I get him to eat now he will eat some and then hold his mouth and say “ow”. Could he be teething again? I am pretty sure he has all his teeth but maybe not or maybe one is growing in some more I don’t know. Anyone have any clue tha... More
My daughter eats lots of fruits and veggies and i give her some table food as well which in our household is almost always seasoned in some way. So she ends up with breath that smells like garlic or ginger or something. I typically wash her mouth with a washcloth at bath time and she has a toothbrush that she is accustomed to holding and chewing. That isnt working out so great anymore. To get h... More

Our pediatrician said that my 2 year old is getting an indentation at the roof of his mouth from sucking his thumb. It could prevent him from pronouncing words correctly and possible braces when he’s older. He just turned two so he doesn’t exactly understand that he has to stop. Other than the gunk you can put on their thumbs - what else have you tried?
My daughter (25 months) fell and chipped one of her front teeth. She is fine and happy, my wife is, understandably, devastated about it ("It's our daughters perfect smile" in a sense). We took her to the dentist and they said we had 3 options - 1. Do nothing, she might be sensitive to temperatures, but other than that everything will be fine (but my wife would see it everyday an...

Hey parents, when did you guys really start forcing the issue of tooth brushing? My 15mo has a good number of teeth and we have been offering her a baby toothbrush am/pm but recently she is disinterested and in fact vehemently opposed. I haven’t been really setting a boundary here yet since I’m not sure when exactly it’s important and didn’t want to make it an issue when it doesn’t need to be i... More
What should I be doing for baby’s teeth (two on the bottom)? He’s only 6 months, and he nurses to sleep and sometimes through out the night. Should I be concerned about rotting? Because otherwise these sleep habits work for us. Additionally, when does baby first go to the dentist? He doesn’t even open his mouth to let me see his teeth so I don’t imagine he’d do it for anyone else.
How did you introduce brushing teeth routine? What products worked the best for you? My daughter is 17 months old and has 6 teeth. We haven’t established a teeth brushing routine, but think it’s probably a good time to do so, especially since she has a bottle of milk right before bed.
