The AAP now advises parents to take their toddler to a California dentist before their first birthday, or about six months after their first tooth appears.
Why? Prevention, prevention, prevention! Sadly, Alexandria 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
