Thrush (Oral Candida Infection) in Children

What is thrush in children?

Thrush is a mouth infection that is common in babies and children. Symptoms include white or yellow velvety patches in the mouth. Thrush is caused by a type of fungus called Candida. Candida is found naturally on the skin and in the mouth. But if Candida grows out of control, it can cause thrush. Thrush is not a serious problem for a healthy child. It can be treated with antifungal medicine.

What causes thrush in a child?

Candida yeast is common in the everyday environment. It only causes a problem when it grows out of control. This can happen if a child:

  • Has taken antibiotics
  • Uses inhaled corticosteroids, such as for asthma
  • Uses a pacifier often
  • Has a weakened immune system

Which children are at risk for thrush?

A child is more at risk for thrush if he or she:

  • Had a very low birth weight
  • Passed through the birth canal of a mother with a yeast infection
  • Has taken antibiotics
  • Uses inhaled corticosteroids, such as for asthma
  • Uses a pacifier often
  • Has a weakened immune system
  • What are the symptoms of thrush in a child?

Thrush causes milky white or yellow patches to form on the tongue or inner cheeks. These patches can be painful and may bleed. Some babies have no pain from thrush. Others may have pain and be fussy and refuse to feed. It may hurt when your child swallows. Thrush can also cause cracked skin in the corners of the mouth. Symptoms can occur a bit differently in each child. The symptoms of thrush can be like other health conditions. Make sure your child sees his or her healthcare provider for a diagnosis.

How is thrush diagnosed in a child?

The healthcare provider will ask about your child’s symptoms and health history. He or she will give your child a physical exam. This will include looking in your child’s mouth.

Do you rinse your mouth with an alchohol-free mouth wash after every meal? If no, then start doing it because it prevents the formation of bacteria in your mouth.

I have put on braces for 3 years now I have removed it but my teeth are not gone completely inside.
Purpose of braces is to have your teeth in proper bite, function as well as aesthetics in relation to your jaws. Dentist will be the best judge for treatment outcome. Also you should wear retainer to maintain the position of teeth after braces are removed for six months.

Wait and watch for a few days for the pain to come down and after that get a cap done over the tooth. If the pain doesn't subside, you have to get the procedure repeated.

I grind my teeth while sleeping. How can I cure this problem. It is very embarrassing some times.

I grind my teeth while sleeping. How can I cure this problem. It is very embarrassing some times.
Actual cause for night grinding (nocturnal bruxism) can not be diagnosed here. You have to visit an oral medicine specialist. Once it is diagnosed it can be reduced over time by counselling, medicines, jaw exercises, electrical nerve stimulations and various other methods. For the time being you can use night guard which prevents frictional loss of remaining tooth structures.

Depending on the severity of discolouration bleaching can mask if it is very mild. But again it requires high maintenance and you might have to repeat it time to time. If stains are dark crowns (cap) is a better and a permanent solution. Thank you.
