Dental Care for Three to Five Years FAQs

Levittown Pediatric Dentist Providing Effective Dental Services

Your child’s primary teeth are important for a number of reasons. Decay in the primary teeth can result in pain, infection, swelling, speech problems, and early tooth loss, which can affect the alignment of the permanent teeth. Call Little Smiles of Levittown for quality pediatric dental care for your child. Dr. Lee provides dental care for children aged three to five years old.

Please call (516) 217-8910 to schedule an appointment for your preschool-age child.

  • What should I expect regarding my child’s oral development in their preschool years?

    The second molars are the last baby teeth to come in. This usually happens at around two years of age. After that, most children won’t grow or lose any teeth until around age six, although some may lose teeth as early as four or five. Dr. Lee monitors the growth and development of your child’s teeth at regular dental visits, where are recommended every six months for most kids.

  • How do I care for my child’s teeth during this period of their life?

    During the preschool years, children begin to become more independent. While they may want to do everything on their own, they aren’t yet ready to brush independently, so you should continue to help your preschool-age child with brushing and flossing. In addition, avoid sugary juices and sticky snacks, as well as limit juice intake to once or twice a day with a regular meal to prevent tooth decay.

  • What problems can thumb sucking and pacifier use cause?
    • Speech problems
    • Crowded teeth
    • Crossbites
    • Front teeth that don’t close on biting
    • Narrowing of the arches
  • What do I do if my child damages their teeth?

    Preventing dental injuries is important for children under the age of five, as injuries can happen to adventurous young children. Dental injuries often result from running, climbing, and jumping. Watch them closely to prevent injuries and, if an injury happens, contact us for fast and effective dental care.
