In brief: Kid's Dental Visits

2x/year. Because of the the density of baby tooth enamel, and sugars in most kid's diets, if decay starts it progresses very rapidly.
Need professional cleaning, fluoride treatments, x-rays when warranted, oral hygiene instruction, evaluation of growth/development/exchange of baby for permanent teeth. Also, your child should have 1st screening exam with Orthodontic Specialist at age 7.
