Take a look at this important article from ToothIQ which addresses what to do if your child has tooth decay. The author writes that tooth decay results in premature tooth loss, and can lead to pain and infection, as well as permanent teeth moving into improper locations in the jaws.
The article also addresses specific problems which arise from abnormal tooth position.
“Abnormal tooth position can cause excess wear on the permanent teeth, difficulty performing oral hygiene, more problems with tooth decay, gum disease, and problems with the jaw joints. In addition, crowded, rotated teeth may produce esthetic concerns which can affect social development.”
Issues with children’s oral health can be treated the same as if the patient were an adult. Procedures for kids can include restorative materials such as silver amalgam, composite resin and glass ionomer, as well as prefabricated crowns.
