Frequently Asked Questions

Why Is Dental Care Important for Toddlers?

Dental care is crucial for toddlers because it sets the foundation for lifelong oral health. By establishing good oral hygiene habits early on and addressing any potential issues promptly, parents can help their children maintain healthy smiles and avoid more serious dental problems in the future.

How Often Should a Child Go to the Dentist?

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends that children visit the dentist for the first time by their first birthday or within six months of their first tooth erupting. After this initial visit, children should see the dentist every six months for regular check-ups and cleanings.

How Long Does Teething Last?

Teething typically begins around 6 months of age and can continue until your child is about 2-3 years old. The duration and intensity of symptoms can vary from child to child, but most children experience some discomfort during this process.

How Do You Fix a Cavity in a Child?

Cavities in children are treated similarly to those in adults. The dentist will remove the decayed portion of the tooth and fill the cavity with a tooth-colored filling material. In some cases, a crown may be necessary to protect the tooth from further decay.
