Does my Child Need to see a Dentist Before Turning One?

In fact, tooth decay has increased by 17 percent in 2 to 5-year-olds over the past 10 years. Dentists blame a delay in dental care for this rise.

The AAPD recommends that infants see a dentist for the first time when their first tooth pops through, usually between the ages of 6 and 12 months. Early dental care, combined with good dental hygiene and healthy eating practices can protect your child from cavities early in life. Go ahead and make that dentist appointment!
