General Information

  • Professional check-ups should start as soon as the child has teeth. This is when cavity prevention should start, not after cavities have started.
  • Children should have check-ups every 6 months. Special needs children should get check-ups every 3 months or less.
  • Cavities from baby teeth hurt just as badly as cavities in permanent teeth. Children don’t always have the vocabulary to explain what they are feeling.
