Common Questions and Answers about Tooth problems in children


Avatar n tn What are her chances of becoming diabetic? Her doctor said hypoglycemia sometimes precedes diabetes in children. Is is possible to "grow out of" hypoglycemia? If so, what are the chances of this happening?
Avatar n tn My daughter had a tooth removed where she had an extra tooth in the gums. They gave her a general anesthetic (put her to sleep.) She is now 15 and does not remember having the tooth removed. Will they be giving a shot to numb or put your daughter to sleep? Children are resilient--mine didn't have any problems afterward with pain or such.
1047019 tn?1256719961 Does diet soda cause tooth decay? My friend allows her daughter to drink limitless quantities of diet coke, and she insists it isn't the cause of her tooth problems. The daughter has had a silver tooth, and more recently major fillings in some of her back baby teeth, for which the dentist wanted to put her under general anesthesia. My friend insists diet Coke is perfectly fine for teeth?
Avatar f tn I have problems with numbing tooth in lower jaw and am waiting for an extraction on the NHS under GA When I saw a consultant he said it was always possible to get numb with a local anasthetic but I am not imagining this, it is really painful. He has put me to the bottom of the list as he feels my dentist could have removed the tooth under a local. Is it because I have some complicated nerve pathway ?
899169 tn?1242617019 t complain about pain in the morning but the teeth grinding is bad, and im worried about problems that might come from this. My six year old also does this.
Avatar n tn I just read a recent article about moms with tooth problems and the dangers of the infection to their children. Make the dental appointment now, and then get on the phone to your ob-gyn for advice about what can and can't be done. I would bet both of them tell you to remove the tooth. Don't be afraid to ask the ob to call the dentist if you think it will help.
1110718 tn?1258435594 I am not a doctor and can only relay to you what I have read. I read that PANDAs is usually noticed in children about the age of 7 but that it can occur earlier. Children don't (or can't) always articulate what is going on with themselves so earlier occurrences of this tragic condition may not be brought to the parents' attention until around that age.
Avatar f tn Babies take a lot of calcium from their mothers body so tooth problems can be common during pregnancy.
Avatar n tn A pulled tooth can result in numb toes and leg cramps, an overdose of anesthesia can last for two weeks and cause stomach problems, physical imbalance, or more. Root canals and dental infections can affect heart rate. Antibiotics can problem digestion. And pulled teeth are a source of sorrow, they never return. The primary answer (to teach children) is to do everything possible to have good teeth and stay away from dentist offices.
Avatar m tn I went for a cleaning appt , when they did x-rays the tooth deteriated in the gumline and bone .An oral surgeon extracted the tooth and did a bone graph due to bone loss. I was never givien antibiotics. After a wk I still had swelling in my face and the site was oozing pus. It was the weekend I had antibiotics of my husbands (enough for 3 days)I was sure this was an infection.I made an appt w/the oral surgeon . My jaw felt dislocated I couldnt chew and could barely open my mouth.
Avatar n tn s the tooth next to the crown, but the dentists cannot figure out the problem (even with Xrays), whether it may be a cavity in that next tooth, an infection in the root canal, a nerve, or what one dentist suggested -- that the filling in that next tooth is old and is pressing on a nerve. He told me I may have the same problem, and filed down the filling some. It helped me for a while, but I too have discomfort (not actual pain) when I chew on that molar area.
Avatar f tn I had 3 root canals in a tooth a few weeks ago, the tooth did not settle and I continued to have continuous pain, worse after eating or drinking. The pain and sensitivity increased so the tooth was eventually removed. I thought this would be the end of the problems. Things still have not settled and whilst there was some improvement the teeth either side of the extraction are now aching and ache for some time after eating or drinking.
Avatar m tn I wouldn't say that is normal in the least bit, most children of that age have almost all of their teeth excluding some molars of course. What does his pediatrician say?
Avatar n tn I have had no problems since then. The molar behind this tooth also had to have a root canal and was eventually pulled eight months ago due to a cracked root. I am not sure what to do about this tooth pain. Does it mean that this tooth may also have a cracked root? Are there any treatment options other than getting it pulled? Why would it start hurting all of a sudden after eight months of no pain?
Avatar n tn About a week ago I started getting a toothache in my 2nd molar, upper right side. This particular tooth has had some problems (bad cavity, which was filled). Anyway, I went to the dentist and he said there was another cavity and he would fill it in a couple of weeks but there was a possibility it wouldn't work and the tooth would have to be extracted or i would need RCT.
Avatar n tn Is that why we're suppose to use Biotene?
