多大可以開始看醫師呢？一般建議長牙後到 1 歲前就可以去看第一次牙醫囉，塗不塗氟是其次，重點是跟醫生了解小孩口腔的狀況，以及哪些要特別注意的地方。
Parents can still be unsure whether their children are at risk of tooth decay. The easiest way to find out is to visit your pediatric dentist and have a professional assessment.
Every child is different. A face-to-face examination will be the most accurate way to find out.
How old should I take my child to a dentist? It's recommended to visit a dentist between the eruption of the first tooth to 1 year old. It's secondary to decide whether to receive a fluoride varnish or not. The main purpose is to find out how your child's oral development is and if there's any particular areas of notice.
Regular visit to the dentist, and receiving fluoride varnish, and getting advice on the use of fluoridated toothpaste and tablets, are ways to effective cavity prevention.
