Routine dental visits can help us to identify and treat potential dental problems before they become serious–including cavities and tooth decay.
One of the most fundamental elements of pediatric dentistry is frequent dental attention. While at-home methods such as brushing and flossing are beneficial ways to preserve the oral health of your child, they require the attention of their dentist on a regular basis.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry officially recommends that you schedule a check-up appointment for your child twice a year. When you and your child attend these biannual appointments with a pediatric dentist, we will be able to identify potential developments of oral problems, monitor the proper growth of your child’s teeth, and provide routine oral healthcare.
Other benefits of routine dental exams and cleanings include:
- Recording dental health and jaw development to plan for future treatment
- Educate parent and child during the visit on healthy oral habits and diets
- X-rays to identify and treat cavity developments before they become serious
