Baby Dental – Babies and Dental Cavities

Saturday, Dec. 18th 2021 8:55 AM

Question: What happens if you do not have your baby’s cavities filled right away? I really can not afford to spend the money though my baby has two small cavities right now.

Reply: The problem with tooth decay (cavities) particularly if left untreated, can result in infection, chewing difficulty and even malnutrition. If the decay is bad enough, abscesses may develop, affecting the health of the child’s permanent teeth. Also cavities can cause your baby to have dental pain, which I am sure that is not something you would want to have happen. I suggest talking to your child dentist and see if they can offer an affordable payment plan. If you do not currently have dental insurance you may want to think about getting a low cost dental HMO plan to help you save on the cost of your family dental care needs.
