Signs Your Child May Have a Dental Problem

Posted on May 27th, 2024

Saxonburg dentist, Dr. Roger M. Sepich at Saxonburg Dental Care, lets parents know their child might have a dental problem if they’re exhibiting these symptoms.Examining your child’s mouth isn’t easy! Their bone structure is still developing, and they might have difficulty opening wide—if they don’t, you’ll probably need a flashlight and a dental mirror for examination. 

Your Saxonburg dentist, Dr. Roger M. Sepich, is equipped with a comfortable dental chair for them to lean back in, an illuminating overhead light, intraoral cameras, and x-ray imaging that helps us get an accurate picture of the condition of their teeth, gums, jawbone, and tongue.

However, if your child is experiencing any dental issue, such as gum disease, a tongue tie, or tooth decay, there are telltale signs you’ll notice, such as your little one avoiding eating or drinking because of sensitive teeth.

Physical Cues

Young children may not be able to verbally express that they’re experiencing discomfort, but if they’re drooling, rubbing their faces, having trouble sleeping, or even acting out angrily, bringing them to Saxonburg Dental Care is a good idea. We can talk more with you about the most common dental symptoms that indicate trouble and explain potential causes.

If you’re concerned for any reason about your child’s dental health, don’t hesitate to contact Saxonburg Dental Care! We’re here to ensure your little one’s smile doesn’t cause them discomfort.
