It is critical for your growing child to maintain good dental hygiene in order ensure health and happiness. Starting at 12 months of age, we recommend that children should visit Dr. Lund and Dr. Markham at least twice a year for regular checkups and dental cleanings. Dental hygiene is important for children with baby teeth, just as it is for those with their adult teeth. In fact, a child that has a cavity in a baby tooth is three times more likely to develop a cavity in the adult tooth. There is still much we do not fully understand in the field of dental health, but we are learning more and more just how large of a role dental health plays in the overall health of the human body.
Dr. Lund and Dr. Markham recommend visiting for a regular dental cleaning at least every six months. During these routine visits, our dental team will perform a complete dental examination and professional cleaning. Even with exemplary dental hygiene habits, it is still possible to have cavities and damage to your teeth and gums. Dental health is affected by a variety of factors such as hygiene habits, diet, lifestyle, and genetics. Also, even with regular tooth brushing and flossing, it is not possible to remove all the plaque and tartar buildup that our trained professionals will gently clean during your child’s dental hygiene appointment.
