My 5 & half year old, her tooth is shaking and when I checked her teeth I noticed there's another tooth growing inside (behind) the one shaking is it?
Loose teeth are: Normal in a 5 year old. I suspect it's the lower front tooth. The baby tooth is exfoliating to allow the permanent tooth to erupt. The other tooth growing in is the normal pattern. Sounds normal to me, but have your dentist comment on this at your child's next checkup or sooner if it will relieve any concern. Good luck! ...Read more
Brush: Next time around you should start earlier by rubbing gums by 4-5 mo so the kid is used to you paying attention to this area by the time they develop attitude. By a year & with the onset of walking (mobility) kids decide to enforce the "I don't want to" attitude more often. Expect it with just about anything and just be the parent. It is not abusive to do what they need. They will eventually understand ...Read more
What happens with a cracked baby tooth? While brushing our three year old son's teeth last week, I noticed what looks like a crack on one of his teeth. It doesn't seem to hurt him at all, and I've made an appointment with our dentist. I'm just wondering I
See the Pro: Hopefully it's minor, but teeth do break. Kids fall down and get bumped all the time. Cavities can also cause fractures. It's important that kids start seeing dentist as soon as 1st tooth comes in. If your dentist has seen your child regularly, he will know so much more about your son's individual dental needs. You did the right thing by scheduling an appointment. ...Read more

Can children wear night guards? Our seven year old son grinds his teeth at night, and I've worn a night guard for bruxism for many years as an adult. Do they have the same things for kids, and if so, do they have to always get new ones due to growth? .
Many children grind their teeth. It is normal, and is a part of jaw and muscle development. It I also our bodies' reaction to stress, and as a parent, you know that growing up is stressful.
Follow the advise of dr. Davantzis: lots of love and regular visits to the pediatric dentist are exactly what the doctor ordered.

My one year old daughter has had a fever for two days. She's getting her eye teeth, she's had the flu shot....What could this be coming from?
It's not the teeth:
Teething does not cause fever, despite a lot of old wives tales that it does.
There are many things which cause fever, the most common being infections. But can also be a common reaction to many vaccines, usually in the first day or two after getting them.
If there are more worrying signs such as not acting like herself you should consult your health care practitioner. ...Read more

Stain of some sort: Your dentist has given a clean bill of health regarding your teeth. I suspect what you are seeing is either a stain or ebernated enamel. Ebernated enamel is "affected enamel", the outer covering of the tooth has had repeated acid attacks from bacteria interspersed with healing periods (possibly Fluoride as well) and it heals up. They are usually seen between the teeth as opposed to on top. ...Read more
My 5 year old bit a hard popsicle and tooth became loose and now it has a discolor look to it. Should I pulled it or leave it? She is 5 so I hope it doesn't cause damage to the root fir the permant one.
Very hard to diagnose your question over the internet. Lower front tooth? Upper front tooth?
Don't worry, it probably did not cause any damage to her permanent tooth. If it turned dark, then the nerve in the tooth may have died, meaning that it needs to be evaluated by a dentist.
Have it looked at and evaluated for extraction. ...Read more
My son is 38 years old with the worst teeth I have seen! Teeth are broken sharp one piece left in parts. Teeth are breaking falling out! Help?
Seek out a Dentist: Whether you have a local dentist or you know of an area dental clinic, you need to take your son to a dentist to get treatment immediately! Teeth as you're describing can cause serious infections that can potentially cause death! If fear of the dentist is a factor in avoiding treatment, there are dentists that will use IV or oral sedation to put him asleep during treatment and he'd wake up done! ...Read more
Nothing: The tooth may straighten on its own. If it doesn't, there should be no problem with the tooth. If the tooth begins to discolor, however, it may need to be extracted as a change in color (the tooth becomes gray) means the nerve inside the tooth has died and the tooth may abscess. I recommend you take your child to your dentist for an exam and x-ray to see if there is any damage. ...Read more
Primary or permanent: If it was a primary (baby) tooth, ther permanent tooth is probably just about to erupt. If it was one of his secondary teeth (permanent tooth), then there is no third tooth. ...Read more
My 2 years old kid has broken one of her teeth as a result to an accident and another tooth which is beside the broken one get bluish, what's the case?
The tooth could be: Dying & at increased risk for decay or infection. The fractured tooth is also at risk. If your child didn't see a dentist for the first check-up at 1, ask your pediatrician for referral to a pediatric dentist who can examine & x-ray those teeth to determine how best to treat them, as well as check your child's overall dental health. Pediatric dentists are great with fearful kids, so no worries. ...Read more
Do all braces always require tooth removal at some point. I am hoping I don't have to remove any as I already have fewer teeth. I have just had my braces put in 2 weeks ago as an adult, 30 years old. One front tooth is slightly under my bottom teeth when
30%: Orthodontic specialists treat 70% or more of their patients without extractions. I hope you are seeing an orthodontic specialist (as opposed to a gp) for your very specialized care. If the orthodontist did not mention extractions, your individualized treatment plan probably does not require extractions. Ask him/her at your next visit, follow instructions to the letter, and you should be ok. ...Read more

My daughter is almost 14 years old and is already going in one of her wisdom teeth, its on the far left bottom.
Ok...: No question asked, but you should have her evaluated by her dentist and/or oral surgeon to see how much room she has for her wisdom teeth. Many people do not have enough room and need those teeth extracted. ...Read more

Do I get a second opinion? I haven't been to the dentist in 6 plus years. I just recently went to one to get my teeth cleaned and a check up. I am 23 years old and have never had a cavity. I was told I had a ton of tarter on my teeth and my gums were pull
In: In essence, by posting your question online, on this site, you already are asking for a second opinion. You are uncomfortable with your dentist's diagnosis. This knowledge is enough for me to tell you to seek a second opinion. This would usually be called a consultation and would be complimentary in most dental practices. I think you would feel more comfortable with what you decide to do and the treatment suggested by your dentist. You have to really take into consideration three facts: your hygiene was not as good as it should have been, you can have no pain and still have cavities and you have not seen a hygienist or a dentist for 6 years. Taking all of this into consideration. You diagnosis could be spot on! ...Read more

Teeth and the Chills:
I'd need some more information. If it was right after the procedure it can be an anxiety release. It will pass quickly. Sit down breathe deeply and slowly. Have someone else drive you home if necessary.
If the timing is different than this, then please. Send more information. ...Read more
My 88 year old mother had a tooth filled this morning and now the one side of her lip is swollen. What can we do to reduce swelling?
Cold compress: Sounds like there was some trauma to the lip while it was numb. The best treatment is a cold compress to the area. A zip lock bag with ice and wraped in a thin towel will be helpful. (10 minutes on/ 10 minutes off for the evening) a non-steroidal anti inflamatory would also be helpful if she can take that. (ie: asprin or ibuprofen). ...Read more

Wow!: Highly unusual for a baby incisor that was supposed to fall out at 6-9 to still be present @ 59. It means either missing or impacted permanent tooth. If baby tooth is stable, you can leave it alone. If it's not, or if you are unhappy esthetically, ask your dentist to review with you the many restorative options that are available. ...Read more
