How often should my child see a dentist?

two kids smiling | Family Dentistry in Chico CA | South Chico Dental CareThe standard age for children going to their first Chico, CA dental visit is as soon as their first tooth comes in or by their first birthday. Caring for your child's baby teeth requires extra care, and your dentist will go over advice and tips to ensure you have all the information you need. As your child grows, your dentist will advise on how often dental visits should be. Typically, most dentists suggest a six-month check-up to prevent cavities or other tooth issues; however, your dentist may recommend more frequent visits to achieve perfect oral health. 

The Importance of Oral Hygiene for Kids

Talk with your family dentist about how often your child should visit for a dental check-up. In between your twice annual dental visits, it's important that parents instill an excellent system of oral hygiene in their home. Brushing your teeth along with your child can help them perfect their technique by watching you; as well as understand the importance of timing. Many dentists recommend a gentle electric toothbrush with a built-in timer to help time each brushing session.
