The importance of pediatric dental cleanings and examinations can be seen in the beautiful, straight, cavity-free mouths of your children as they grow into adulthood. Pediatric dental visits, as recommended by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, should be scheduled twice a year, beginning at age one.
Regular dental examinations give the dentist an opportunity to maintain a record of how your child’s permanent teeth are forming. The dentist will monitor and watch for any signs of biting, chewing or speech impediments. Early detection of any dental problem allows both you and the dentist to consider all available corrective treatment options.
