The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends a dental check-up at least twice a year for most children. Some children need more frequent dental visits because of increased risk of tooth decay, unusual growth patterns or poor oral hygiene. Your pediatric dentist will let you know the best appointment schedule for your child.
Patterns of primary tooth eruption can vary from child to child. However, there are usually 8 incisors present by the first year. Usually by three years of age all 20 of the primary teeth are present.
