Chances are you’ve felt the nagging aches and pains of sensitive teeth. As a parent, you never want your child to suffer this type of pain. If your Little Hero winces and complains of tingling or pain in their teeth, they might be experiencing the effects of tooth sensitivity. At Little Heroes Pediatric Dentistry, we want to put all of our super tools together to help protect your child’s shining smile. The first steps in achieving this are understanding and recognizing the most common causes of sensitive teeth in children.
The Nagging Cavity Creep
The Cavity Creep can be one of the meanest and ugliest villains in the oral hygiene world. This ravenous member of the Sugarbugs can be an obstacle in the mission towards better oral care, all while making your Little Hero’s teeth more sensitive.
Out with the Old, In with the New
There’s no denying that the loss of baby teeth and the sprouting of new permanent ones can be really exciting for any Little Hero. However, the tooth sensitivity and discomfort he/she may feel during this time may be a direct result of the contact their teeth have with foods or drinks.
Nobody likes to have the annoying and nagging effects of a runny and congested nose. Unfortunately, this struggle can additionally put a damper on your Little Hero’s smile by making his/her teeth much more sensitive due to the pressure that can be built up.
