how often should my child see a dentist? Carrollton

How often should your youngster receive a dental check-up?

You’ve probably heard that most men and women need a dental check-up every six months. This is a good schedule for children as well. In some cases, however, a person should see a dentist more frequently. Regardless of their age.

If your child has a higher risk for dental problems, we advise you to bring them every four months.

Amy Horton, DDS, of The Carrollton Dentist in Carrollton is accepting new pediatric patients. If you are looking for a pediatric dentist, we invite you to meet our team.

Know The Risk Factors For More Frequent Dental Visits

Many conditions increase the risk of decay or tooth injury for young kids and teenagers. The following factors may necessitate visiting the dentist more frequently:

  • High sugar intake
  • A mother with severe tooth decay
  • Poor oral hygiene
  • Baby teeth that come in early
  • Severely crooked teeth
  • Limited exposure to fluoride
  • Bite problems (an underbite, overbite, or crossbite)
  • Orthodontia
  • Medical conditions that affect oral health

Adolescent Factors

  • Eating disorders
  • Frequent consumption of soda and energy drinks
  • Smoking, vaping or chewing tobacco
  • Mouth, tongue, or lip piercings
  • Medical conditions that affect oral health
  • Wisdom teeth monitoring
  • Orthodontia

Dental visits should begin when your little one’s first tooth appears—usually before twelve months of age. Let’s work together to make sure your child has a healthy, happy smile.
