Children's Dental Issues in Portland

Common Dental Issues for Children

What to Look Out for (as a Parent)

Did you know that emergencies, child behavior, and environmental conditions can impact your child’s oral health?

As a parent, it can be scary when you can’t physically help your child yourself. However, there are many ways to help your child’s oral health without having to do it all by yourself — like partnering with a trusted dental office that serves the Hillsdale, Montalma, Arnold creek, and Dunthorp communities.

At Burlingame Dental Arts, children’s dentistry is one of our favorites, and we take a comforting and warm approach to dental care. Let us help your child feel their very best! Give us a call with any concerns you may have.


Emergency Dentistry for Children in Portland

It’s common for children to explore their surroundings as they grow up. From trying out high-impact sports to eating new/exciting sugary foods, there are many reasons why dental emergencies occur in the lives of our little ones (and teens).

If a dental emergency does pop up, we want to reassure you that our team has seen numerous dental issues before, and we’re here to help! At our dental office, our commitment is to get your child out of pain, fix the issue, and get your loved one back to their happy, bubbly selves. Reach out if your child has a dental emergency.

*If there’s excessive bleeding or damage, contact 911.


Preventing Future Dental Issues

There are many different, harmful habits or actions children can do that will impact their oral health. (Or, sometimes it may not be something they can control at all! From time to time, children may undergo certain genetic issues.)

No matter the circumstance, we want you to feel well-prepared as a parent to handle them when and if issues arise. Some of these issues could include:

  • Cavities and tooth decay
  • Gum disease (gingivitis)
  • Toothaches /pain in the mouth
  • Tooth loss /tooth decay when teeth have fallen out prematurely
  • Crooked teeth /malocclusion (poor bite alignment)

Want to prevent future issues from arising? Give us a call. We’d love to give your child the care they need to thrive as they age.
