Children and Family Dentistry Near Plymouth MN For years, the American Academy of Pediatrics advised Maple Grove parents to begin children’s dentist visits before the third birthday.

The AAP now advises Plymouth MN and Champlin parents to take their toddler to a Minnesota dentist before their first birthday, or about six months after their first tooth appears.

Why? Prevention, prevention, prevention! Sadly, Maple Grove dentists find advanced tooth decay in very young children.

High-risk children should be seen as early as possible. Following are some of the risk factors:

  • Sleeping with a bottle
  • Drinking juice continually during the day
  • Abnormal tooth development
  • Thumb sucking
  • Tooth grinding
  • A mother with significant tooth decay
  • Other medical and dental health problems
