How often should my child have a dental exam and cleaning?
Your child should have your teeth checked and cleaned at least twice a year, though your dentist may recommend more frequent visits.
Regular dental exams and cleaning visits are essential in preventing dental problems and maintaining the health of your child’s teeth and gums. At these visits, your child’s teeth are cleaned and checked for cavities. Additionally, there are many other things that are checked and monitored to help detect, prevent, and maintain your dental health.
