Dental Development in Toddlers
At St. Louis Hills Dental Group we see children on a routine basis. We usually begin seeing them when they are about two years of age. We check for cavities and evaluate the child's growth and development. Most of the time routine follow-up is all that is needed.
If a child has a cavity issue we recommend active treatment. If there is a development issue we will inform the parents and usually track the problem until an appropriate time to have treatment.
Patients with airway problems or more significant development issues will be referred to a specialist for evaluation and possible treatment.
