Dental care at every age

There is no age category that is safe from dental problems. From the eruption of the first baby tooth, through to retirement, here are the most frequent dental conditions encountered by children, adults and seniors.

Babies and children

Baby bottle tooth decay and cavities Decay occurs due to sugar in various drinks such as milk, fresh juice, or sweetened tea that remain on the teeth for long periods of time. It is important that babies and small children do not fall asleep with the bottle in their mouth, or use it as a pacifier, and as soon as they finish eating, we must make sure that they have swallowed all the liquid. • Crooked teeth because of thumb-sucking Most babies suck their thumbs or fingers. It’s a habit that hopefully ends by the time they turn five and their first permanent teeth start to erupt. Otherwise, the pressure exerted by the tongue or finger can lead to deformation of the teeth, and from here problems can arise regarding the bite or even the correct development of speech. If you have any questions about removing your wisdom teeth don’t hesitate to contact us and schedule an appointment at Pacifica Dental.
