How often should kids go to the dentist?

At Topeka Dentistry, we believe dental care should be a family affair, so we strive to provide the best dentistry for both you and your family under one roof. And when it comes to caring for the littlest teeth, we have numerous ways to keep your kids’ teeth healthy and strong, but one of the most effective is consistency. This is why we recommend seeing your kids routinely, at least twice a year.

The Benefits of Routine Dental Care

Among our goals for early dental visits is cultivating a positive relationship between your child and dentistry so they can enjoy a lifetime of oral health. We make dental visits gentle and fun, and we will move at their unique pace regarding their first experiences. We aim to create a trusting relationship with each family member and to make dental visits something everyone looks forward to, like a fun family adventure. 

Another primary goal is to use their routine visits to uncover potential problems. Because prevention is the best treatment, we offer services like fluoride rinses and dental sealants, both of which help hold off tooth decay and prevent cavities.

Finally, routine visits help us instill good at-home care habits and practice them on their baby teeth. We will monitor their growth and progress so that their baby teeth fall out naturally and their permanent teeth come in strong.
