Why Are Checkups Important?
Your child’s teeth and jaws are developing as they grow. Their oral health is changing all the time, too, and it’s important to make sure things are going normally. If not, your child may develop dental issues, such as tooth decay, weakened enamel, or misaligned teeth. That’s why checkups are essential for giving your child the best possible start in life!
Our pediatric dentists recommends visiting our office twice a year, or every six months, for complete checkups, cleanings, and other routine dental maintenance. Regular visits allow our team to monitor your child’s tooth and jaw development and recommend the appropriate treatments.
