Yuma Parents: Do You Know AAP Recommendations?

Children’s Dental in Yuma

For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday. Now your friends at The Yuma Dentist are here to tell you that the AAP and American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry 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 advise parents about children’s oral health, many dentists find advanced tooth decay in very young children.

Moreover, high-risk youth 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 acute cavities
  • Other health problems

To make an appointment for your toddler, call the Yuma Dentist. We work with parents to ensure that their children’s smiles start out healthy and stay healthy as they grow. We provide general and cosmetic dentistry.
