According to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, a child should be examined by a dentist whenever the first tooth has fully erupted, sooner if there is a problem. A child with one tooth can develop a cavity and two adjacent teeth can become decayed if they’re not properly flossed.
Kids dentists indicate that baby bottle tooth decay is a frequent problem and it’s caused by parents sending their child to bed with a bottle or sippy cup that contains juice or milk. Both of these drinks are high in acid and sugar and can be very damaging to the teeth. Dentists recommend that you never put your child to bed with a bottle or sippy cup and that the child brush their teeth immediately before bedtime.
During your first visit to our dental care offices, your dentist will examine your child’s teeth and jaw to determine if there are any issues. This exam can be done from your lap or from the dentist’s chair. Most children don’t require x-rays but if your child does, we can take them.
