How often should I bring my child in for a dental checkup?

Regularly scheduled dental cleanings and checkups are necessary for child’s dental health. Bringing your child to pediatric dental checkups ensure that your child’s teeth are as healthy and strong as they can be.

We recommend that you take your child to the pediatric dentist every six months. Bi-annual visits help to ensure that cavities and other types of dental problems are prevented or caught before they become more serious dental or health issues. Your child should never go more than six months without visiting the dentist.

Infant Dental Checkups

As soon as teeth begin erupting, parents should begin bringing their child to dental checkups every six months. It is as important to keep an infant’s mouth as thoroughly clean as it is for adult teeth. Make sure that your child’s teeth are as healthy as they can be by scheduling regular checkups.

Routine Sealant Checkups

Does your child have sealants? In order to ensure that dental sealants are doing their job, they should be checked upon routinely at least every six months. Repair or reapplication of dental sealants should be performed as soon as it is recommended.

Some Children Require More Frequent Dental Checkups

Your child has unique dental needs, and some needs may require more attention. For example, a child that is showing signs of orthodontic problems may require more frequent visits. Talk to your pediatric dentist about your child’s dental care. Your dentist may recommend that your child come in for checkups more frequently than every six months.
