Can a dentist tell what tooth is causing a child pain

Monday, May. 17th 2010 2:47 PM

My two year old son seems to be having a toothache.  He say is tooth hurts but does not know which one.  I looked in his mouth but do not see anything out of the norm.  I made a dental appointment for two days from now.  It is the soonest he can get in to see the dentist.

I am just wondering if the child does not know what tooth is hurting him will the dentist know for sure which tooth it is?   Thanks

    Yes a dentist will be able to tell you which tooth is causing the problems. I would think that they would do X-rays as well as checking his teeth will his tools to find out which one is hurting your son.

    Sure that is what dentist do. Unless the cavity or cavities are big you may not be able to see it by just looking into your son mouth. However dentist have X-rays as well as there tools to find cavities with.

    Do not worry your dentist will be able to advise you about your son teeth. That is why we go to them.
