Tupelo, MS - Dr. Richard Caron "Your Dental Health" Regular Check Ups

Regular dental check-ups and preventative dental care such as cleanings, fluoride treatments and sealants, are a critical part of a child’s healthcare. Plan your child’s first dental visit within six months after the first tooth erupts, but no later than their first birthday. During your child’s first visit, your dentist will check for cavities, offer teeth cleaning suggestions, ensure the proper number of teeth have erupted, and answer any questions parents may have. Routine dental exams will help assess your child’s dental health through the years. By age seven, it is recommended that your child receive an orthodontic evaluation. Your dentist is always there to provide key information to help you take care of your child’s oral health.
