  • 3. About American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry  The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) recommends that children begin receiving dental care at one year of age. Through regular dental visits, parents can partner with dental professionals to provide a foundation for lifelong dental health for their kids. Qualified pediatric dentists can coach caregivers on oral hygiene, diet, and other important topics to help little ones’ smiles stay healthy.
  • 4. Conclusion  All children should brush their teeth twice per day, and should begin flossing as soon as two teeth make contact, which prevents cleaning by brushing alone. In addition, maintaining a good diet, low in carbohydrates and sugars, can reduce cavity risk. Frequent sugary or starchy snacks can increase acid production in the mouth and cause cavities. Although many families follow the AAPD recommendations, children lose 51 million school hours each year as a result of dental-related illnesses. This underscores the vital need for early dental care for all children.
