According to the American Dental Association, pediatric dental care should begin after your child’s first tooth appears and before your child’s first birthday. Kids usually have their full set of baby teeth in place by 2 ½ to 3 years old.

Though teeth will start to fall out between ages 6 and 7, they still need routine pediatric dental care. Tooth decay in baby teeth can cause serious health concerns if left untreated.

A dental cleaning cost can vary from a routine cleaning to a complete cleaning. Parents can help protect their children’s smiles by encouraging good cleaning habits and helping kids brush and floss; which can also help save them a trip to the dentist and teeth cleaning cost. Somewhere around ages 6-8, most children become capable of doing it themselves with no follow up or assistance.
