Taking care of your children’s teeth is important. In fact tooth decay is the number one medical problem facing most kids.
How much dental work costs depends on the type of dental work that is needed. Some treatments are more expensive than others, but when it comes to your child’s health, the cost for dental work shouldn’t hold you back. There are low-cost dentists who can help.
The cost of many common dental treatments will vary, especially if you have insurance:
It may seem okay not to treat a child’s teeth with as much care as an adult’s—after all, “baby teeth” fall out anyway. However, medical professionals say children should visit the dentist when they get their first tooth or turn one year old. And they should continue to get regular checkups twice a year.
Tooth decay, even at a young age, can lead to mouth pain, infection, and tooth loss if left untreated.
Children who visit the dentist early in life get used to screenings and cleanings. Early visits also prevent costly dental problems later, making the cost for dental work worth it.
