If you’re worried about your child’s dental health, it’s important to take them to a dentist for a thorough checkup. This video shows you when you should take your kid to a childrens dentist.
According to the National Center for Health Statistics, over 20% of American children aged two to five have a cavity. Kids who see the dentist before their first birthday are less likely to have dental decay later.
In fact, the risk of tooth decay virtually doubles every year when parents wait to schedule their child’s first dental checkup beyond their first birthday.
Many parents are unaware of their ignorance regarding their infant’s oral health. Taking care of your child isn’t always easy, and there’s a lot of bad advice about how to keep your kid’s teeth healthy. The first dental visit for a baby is an excellent time for parents to ask questions and get advice on keeping their child’s teeth healthy.
If your child’s teeth show early indications of decay, the dentist will attempt to reverse it before it can get worse. Cavities should be treated as soon as they appear because tooth decay in young children is highly aggressive. If left unchecked, it may swiftly destroy your child’s teeth and lead to more severe health issues.
