Why a Dentist in Pediatric Dentistry?

Wednesday, May 21st, 2014

Children's DentistryThere are many decisions to be made once you have children in regards to their well-being. Among all of these decisions, choosing a dentist for your child is among the top in importance. You want your children to grow up having a happy and healthy smile, so starting annual trips to the dentist can’t begin soon enough. Once your child has reached a year, you should start considering a dentist visit. You may think that a dentist doesn’t need to specialize with children, that it’s just their teeth. But taking your child to a dentist that has experience with pediatric dentistry can help you child’s oral health for years to come.

When you take your child to your Catonsville Family Dentist, you can rest easy knowing that our dentists will make the experience pleasant and welcoming for your child. An adult dentist will be unaware of how a child might perceive the visit and scare your child. Fear of the dentist at a young age will stop your child from wanting to continue visits and their oral health might suffer from it. At Leikin and Baylin, we make sure to be aware of how a child will perceive us. We will choose our words carefully to make sure your child isn’t scared or intimidated. Let us explain the details to your child, we will know phrases to use so that your child has an understanding of what is happening, but doesn’t think they are in harm’s way. We want your child to feel comfortable and know that going to the dentist is a good thing and not something that should be avoided. Dr. Baylin also specializes in magic tricks, so make sure your child asks to see them.

Going to the dentist doesn’t have to be intimidating, so visit your Catonsville Family Dentist where children’s dentistry is one of our specialties. To make an appointment for your child, call us at (410)-747-1115 today. If you have any questions about our procedures and services, fill out our contact form.

Pediatric Dentistry and Preventing Cavities in Children

Friday, August 2nd, 2013

Preventing CavitiesOver time, bacteria in the mouth produce excessive acid that contributes to the loss of tooth enamel, the hard mineral coat that covers the tooth. Without this protective layer, the tooth becomes vulnerable to tooth decay and cavities. The good news: cavities are entirely preventable. The bad news: cavities are still the most common infectious disease among children. What’s worse, cavities in children are on the rise for the first time in over 40 years.

As we said, cavities are entirely preventable. How?

  1. Brushing and Flossing: Your dentist has preached the importance of brushing and flossing time and time again and for good reason: they work. The best way to avoid cavities is to suppress bacteria in the mouth. This is most easily done by brushing twice a day, flossing once a day, and using mouth wash.
  2. Watch what you eat and drink: Sugary foods are a mouth’s worst nightmare. Sugary foods and drinks encourage bacterial growth and acid. Do your best to avoid these types of food and drink and you are one step closer to a cavity free existence.
  3. Regular Dental Visits: Finally, the last piece of the puzzle: the dentist. You should visit your dentist AT LEAST twice a year for regular dental cleanings and to screen for gum disease and so much more, like, you guessed it, cavities.

Cavities Making a Comeback

Oral Care Tips for Children :: Pediatric Dentistry in Catonsville, Maryland

Thursday, October 18th, 2012

Astonishingly, tooth decay, a very preventable disease, is the most common chronic disease among children ages 6-11. According to the American Academy of Pediatrics, tooth decay is five times more likely than asthma and seven times more likely than hay fever. In fact, by kindergarten, more than 40% of children already have tooth decay.

As you can see, good oral habits are incredibly important and they need to begin at an early age. It is never too early to teach your children proper oral health habits. In fact, as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, good oral hygiene practices should begin too.

“A lot of people think they don’t have to brush baby teeth,” said Beverly Largent, former president of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. “You need to brush from the first tooth.” But brushing is just the beginning.

Oral Care Tips for Children

  1. Proper Brushing and Flossing Habits: Good oral care begins with proper brushing and flossing techniques. Brushing should begin at the appearance of a child’s first tooth and flossing should begin when two teeth touch each other. And “[parents] have to clean the teeth until children are able to tie their shoes or write in cursive,” says Largent. Remember, it is these oral hygiene habits that lay the groundwork for your child’s future oral health.
  2. Baby Bottle Decay“: Baby bottle tooth decay occurs when sugars, like those found in milk, formula, fruit juice, and more, are left exposed to an infant’s teeth for an extended period of time. These sugars promote the growth of bacteria, which produce acids that attack the teeth. And if left untreated, baby bottle tooth decay can lead to pain, infection, and the eventual loss of teeth.
  3. Regular Dental Visits: Your child should have his/her first dental visit before their first birthday. And in case you needed any more motivation, a report published by the Center for Disease Control (CDC) found that dental care costs were nearly 40% lower over a five-year period for children who received dental care by age one.

And that is just the beginning. To find out more, consult with your dentist.

7 Ways to Protect Your Child’s Oral Health

Baby Bottle Tooth Decay & what you need to know :: Catonsville Dentists

Thursday, September 20th, 2012

Oral health is not important in infants, right? After all, their baby teeth will just fall out anyway…

Wrong!

Good oral health is important even at a young age, because healthy baby teeth lead to healthy permanent teeth. And the opposite is true, as well. If an infant’s teeth fall out too early because of poor oral health, the child may develop several problems, including:

  • Poor eating habits
  • Speech problems
  • Crooked teeth
  • Damaged adult teeth

And what is the primary culprit? Baby Bottle Tooth Decay!

Baby bottle tooth decay occurs when sugars, like those found in milk, formula, fruit juice, and more, are left exposed to an infant’s teeth for an extended period of time. These sugars promote the growth of bacteria, which produce acids that attack the teeth. And if left untreated, baby bottle tooth decay can lead to pain, infection, and the eventual loss of teeth.

Preventing Baby Bottle Tooth Decay

  1. Avoid sugary drinks.
  2. After feedings, wipe your baby’s gums with a clean gauze pad or washcloth.
  3. Do not allow your child to fall asleep with a bottle containing anything other than water.
  4. Do not dip your child’s pacifier in any sugary substances.
  5. Brush your baby’s teeth (without toothpaste) when his/her first tooth comes in.
  6. Begin flossing regularly once all of your infant’s baby teeth have come in.
  7. Ensure that your child is getting enough fluoride.
  8. Schedule regular visits with the dentist.
