The Importance of Proper Oral Care for Children's Primary Teeth

If your child’s permanent teeth have yet to come in, proper oral care is important for the following reasons:


Primary – or “baby” – teeth serve to hold a space for and guide the incoming, permanent teeth into the proper place.


These teeth are also vital to chewing and digesting food.


Even in the early years of a child’s life, the appearance of the smile can go a long way in building up or damaging their self-esteem. With proper care, you can ensure a healthy, beautiful smile.

When Should Parents Contact a Dentist for Their Children?

As a parent, knowing when to contact a dentist for your child's dental needs can be challenging. In this FAQ section, we've compiled some of the most common questions and answers about when parents should contact a dentist for their children, from dental emergencies to regular check-ups and cleanings. Read on to learn more!

When Should I Contact a Dentist for My Child's Dental Emergency?

If your child experiences a dental emergency such as a knocked-out tooth, severe toothache, broken tooth, or bleeding gums, you should contact a dentist as soon as possible. Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic has emergency appointments, so it's important to call immediately.

How Do I Know If My Child's Toothache Requires a Dentist's Attention?

If your child has a toothache, it's important to evaluate the severity of the pain. If the pain is mild and doesn't last long, it may be due to temporary sensitivity or a minor cavity. However, if the pain is severe and lasts for a prolonged period of time, it may be a sign of a more serious issue such as an infection or abscess. In these cases, it's best to contact Coquitlam Centre Dental Clinic to schedule an appointment.

What Should I Do If My Child Has a Dental Injury?

If your child has a dental injury, such as a knocked-out or broken tooth, it's important to contact us as soon as possible. In the meantime, rinse your child's mouth with warm water and apply a cold compress to the affected area to reduce swelling.

How Often Should I Brush My Child's Teeth?

It's recommended that parents brush their children's teeth twice a day, once in the morning and once before bed. Children under age 6 should use only a pea-sized amount of toothpaste and be supervised while brushing.
