The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) also recommends a check-up and cleaning every six months in order to prevent cavities and other dental problems.
The American Academy of Orthodontists (AAO) recommends children visit an orthodontist for the first time no later than age 7. At this point, an orthodontist can evaluate a child’s airway, bite and oral habits. Your orthodontist can then determine if braces or other treatments are necessary.
