It is generally recommended that every child should visit a dentist by the age of 1. The earlier your child starts taking regular dental checkups, the better their oral health will be. A periodic oral checkup will prevent cavities and tooth decay and eliminate unnecessary pain and other medical issues. Moreover, children with healthy teeth can chew food properly, speak clearly, and smile freely. If you are looking for a dentist for your child, visit Bronstein Family Dental.

Dental care for children must begin as early as when their first tooth comes out. Getting regular dental checkups can aid in avoiding common oral problems such as:
Tooth decay is caused by consuming many sugary foods and drinks that can wear down their enamel. Young children are at a higher risk of facing tooth decay than adults as their teeth are thinner and softer.
Losing their teeth to decay at an early age prevents the permanent teeth from growing properly. Though small kids lose their primary teeth within the age of 5 to 10 years, many kids also lose their teeth to decay. This creates problems in speech, appearance and overall facial structure.
Gingivitis is an early stage of gum disease. This is also attributed to the consumption of sugary foods and drinks. The buildup of plaque and tartar around the teeth weakens the gums causing gum problems.
