Wisdom Teeth and Teens: What Every Parent Should Know Like dental braces, the removal of wisdom teeth is one of the dental "rites of passage" for teens. Wisdom teeth -- or third molars -- are our final set of molars and usually start to emerge between the ages of 16 and 25. They are known as "wisdom" teeth in most cultures because of their late arrival compared to other adult molars. If your teen begins to complain about wisdom teeth symptoms, including inflammation and wisdom teeth pain towards the back of their jaw, it is very likely that their wisdom teeth are getting ready to erupt. Once the teeth break through the gums it is important for your teen to clean them thoroughly everyday, since food and debris can easily become trapped under the gums and cause painful swelling and infection. Your teen's dentist will monitor the development of their wisdom teeth by taking X-rays periodically to track their position and movement. If the teeth become impacted -- which means that they are coming in at an angle -- you will probably be referred to an oral surgeon to have the teeth removed. Impacted wisdom teeth can become infected, cause cysts and damage nearby teeth and nerves, so they should be removed as soon as possible. Will Your Teen Need Wisdom Teeth Removed? Sometimes wisdom teeth are unable to erupt because there is not enough room in your teen's jaw. They may become stuck before they reach the gum surface or while the crown of the tooth is partially visible. This can lead to infections and other complications, so your dentist will likely suggest that they are removed. Some dentists will suggest removing your teen's wisdom teeth as a preventive measure if it is likely that they will cause dental problems down the road. This is often done long before the tooth emerges because the longer a wisdom tooth remains in the mouth the more developed its root becomes. As a result, oral surgery may take longer and complications can occur. Most dentists agree that removing wisdom teeth is the best way to prevent tooth decay, gum infection and pressure pain. Since wisdom teeth will try to make room for themselves in your teen's tightly packed jaw, they may also shift teeth that have been previously straightened with braces or other orthodontic devices, ruining the investment you made in your orthodontist. If you have not done so already, it is a good idea to speak with your teen's dentist about their wisdom teeth. Waiting until complications arise can make the removal process more difficult, and a dentist is the best person to advise you about treatment options.

I read this in an article in USA today... According to Delta Dental’s 13th annual Tooth Fairy survey, cash payouts have soared during the past year to an all-time high average of $4.66, good for a 75-cent increase from 2015. What do you guys think is a good amount to get from the Tooth Fairy??

Dental Care Checklist - Infants Taking care of your infant's baby teeth and gums set the stage for a healthy smile. Here are five dental care musts that every parent should know: - Clean your infant's gums. Use gauze to clean your baby's gums after feedings and at bedtime. Ideally, this should be done even before your child's first tooth erupts. - Take your infant to the dentist. Schedule your child's first dental visit by the age of 1 or after a first tooth erupts. - Brush your infant's baby teeth. Once your child's baby teeth erupt, brush them with a small soft-bristled toothbrush and a pea-sized amount of toothpaste after feedings and at bedtime. - Floss your infant's baby teeth. When two baby teeth erupt side by side, gently floss them at least once a day (preferably before bedtime). - Wean your infant from the bottle. Ask your pediatrician or pediatric dentist when you should stop breastfeeding. If your baby is bottle-fed, wean your child from the bottle by the age of 1. Watch out for: Baby Bottle Tooth Decay -- The health of your infant's baby teeth is important to the healthy growth of their permanent teeth. To keep your infant's teeth healthy and help prevent baby bottle tooth decay be sure to clean them after feedings, and avoid putting your baby to bed with formula or fruit juice (these contain tooth decay-causing sugars); use water instead. Signs of Teething -- Your baby's first tooth can erupt, or "cut," as early as three months and as late as a year. On average, babies experience their first tooth at about 7-months old. The symptoms of teething can vary greatly from child to child, but if your baby becomes increasingly irritable or starts drooling, biting and coughing more than normal he or she could be teething. Try giving your baby a teething ring or bottle of cold water for relief. If the symptoms don't subside, ask your pediatrician about using Infants' Tylenol® or Baby Orajel®. Excessive Pacifier Use -- Pacifiers are great for soothing your baby, helping your baby sleep and providing them with a harmless distraction. But if your infant uses a pacifier for more than three years, he or she may develop dental problems such as slanted teeth or a misaligned bite later on. If you have a difficult time weaning your baby from pacifier use, ask your dentist about alternative ways to give the comfort your child crave
