The American Dental Association recommends children visit their Ashburn pediatric dentist no later than six months after the eruption of their first tooth (or no later than their first birthday), and again every six months. It’s never too early to instill the importance of proper habits and preventive dental care.
We will teach your child to love the dentist.
Straight, white, healthy teeth are so important, but just as much is the need for gentle care and compassion. Our Ashburn pediatric dental team is committed to making even our littlest patients feel safe and secure and loved at the dentist.

Routine dental maintenance for children is extremely important for maintaining good oral health. It includes regular dental check-ups, cleanings, and exams, which help prevent dental problems such as cavities, gum disease, and tooth loss.
Here are some reasons why pediatric routine dental maintenance is important:
- Prevents dental problems: Regular dental check-ups and cleanings can prevent dental problems before they start. Dental professionals can spot early signs of gum disease, cavities, and oral cancer, and take steps to prevent these issues from becoming worse.
- Saves money: Routine dental maintenance can save you money in the long run. Preventing dental problems is often less expensive than treating them. For example, a filling is less expensive than a root canal, and a root canal is less expensive than a dental implant.
- Maintains overall health: Oral health is closely linked to overall health. Poor oral health can lead to systemic health problems such as heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. Regular dental maintenance can help prevent these health issues.
- Promotes good oral hygiene habits: Routine dental maintenance helps promote good oral hygiene habits. Dental professionals can provide tips and advice on how to brush and floss properly, which can help maintain good oral health.
Overall, routine dental maintenance for your child is crucial for maintaining good oral health and preventing dental problems. It’s important to visit a dental professional regularly for check-ups, cleanings, and exams.
