Question My 5 year old tooth ache?

I have been noticing my little five year old having teeth pain... At first I thought he has a new cavity.... And I let it go by saying it is because he has been eating to many sweets, I let him cut down on how many he can have... But he has been complaining a lot lately... So, I asked where does it hurt and he says it hurt behind his back teeth... Could he be having new teeth coming in? I am confused because my 9 year old boy did not have that problem... Should I make a dentist appointment to check it out or just keep giving him pain relievers...????

Re: My 5 year old tooth ache?

can you use one of the dental mirrors and look at where it is bothering him to see if there is another tooth coming in. If not then I would make an appointment with his dentist.

I see something that looks like teeth shape, but he says it hurts right after he had breakfast of cocoa puffs cereal... But I will make an appointment for him soon... I spoke to his dentist about it and because he is being fussy about it... The doctors says he will need to be put to sleep in order to do it for him... It just frightens me that he has to be put sleep.... Is there a different way to do it even if he is going to cry a lot all through the way????
