How to Check Your Child’s Teeth

A quick peek can alert you to trouble.

Sometimes when your children are brushing their teeth, take a moment to look for these signs of trouble:

  • Dark spots on the teeth
  • Holes in the enamel
  • Pain in mouth
  • Teeth that are sensitive to heat, cold, or sweets
  • Teeth that are painful or sensitive when chewing
  • Gums that are pulling away from the teeth

If you see any of these signs, schedule a dentist appointment as soon as possible. Any problem is easier to fix if you get treatment early.
