These habits usually are harmless, unless they continue past the age of 3. Generally, children give these up on their own prior to that age. However, if your child is still using a pacifier or self-soothing with his or her thumb, then ask Dr. Mason about an appliance that can help break the habit.

Avoid nursing your child to sleep or giving them anything other than water in their bedtime bottle. Dr. Mason can show you and your child the proper technique for brushing and flossing to avoid decay. Finally, be sure your child sees the dentist regularly for professional checks of teeth and gums. Schedule the first visit before your child turns 1 year old.

A balanced diet is important for your child’s overall health, including his or her teeth. Limit the servings of sugars and starches. Make sure your child eats one serving from each of these food groups: Fruits and Vegetables; Breads and Cereals; Milk and Dairy Products; and Meat, Fish and Eggs. Dr. Mason can suggest specific foods that your child may enjoy from each food group.

Dr. Mason can provide a custom-fitted mouthguard to protect your child’s teeth, lips, cheeks and gums from sports-related injuries. The mouthguard also offers some protection against head injuries. If your child plans to play sports, ask Dr. Mason about a mouthguard before the season begins.

Most importantly, remain calm and find the tooth. Hold it by the crown, not the root, and try to re-insert it into the socket. If that’s not possible, put the tooth in a glass of milk. Call Dr. Mason immediately after the injury.
