Kid’s Dentistry in Culver City: How do you know if a child has a cavity?
Q: How do you know if a child has a cavity?
A: The only way to be certain if a child has a cavity is for them to get an examination from a dentist. But if you do suspect your child has a cavity, there are several things you should look for.
Examine your child’s teeth, checking for any holes or dark areas. If the child isn’t old enough to speak, be on the lookout for fussy behavior, loss of appetite, and signs of discomfort when the child eats or drinks anything hot or cold. And of course if your child is old enough to talk, you should ask them if their teeth have been hurting.
