Introducing children to a regular dental routine early that includes brushing teeth twice a day and rinsing and flossing at least once a day can help them establish good dental hygiene habits and prevent cavities. Children should start seeing the dentist when they are one year old so the  dentist can look and make sure their teeth are coming in properly and identify any problems early.
