Fishers Parents: Do You Know AAP Recommendations?

Children’s Dental in Fishers

Today’s we have a key message for new parents or parents-to-be.

For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday.

The AAP and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry now guides parents to take their toddler to a dentist before their first birthday, or within six months after their first tooth appears.

Why? Prevention, prevention, prevention! Sadly, even though pediatricians counsel parents about children’s oral health, Indiana dentists find advanced cavities in very young children.

In addition, high-risk children should be seen as early as possible. Following are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice continually during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development including demineralization and staining
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with extreme decay
  • Other health problems
