For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. The AAP now advises Meridian and Sun Valley parents to take their toddler to their family dentist before their first birthday, or about six months after their first tooth appears.
Why? Prevention, prevention, prevention! Sadly, Nampa dentists find advanced tooth decay in very young children.
High-risk children should be seen as early as possible. Following are some of the risk factors:
- Sleeping with a bottle
- Drinking juice continually during the day
- Abnormal tooth development
- Thumb sucking
- Tooth grinding
- A mother with significant tooth decay
- Other health problems
