How Often Should Children come for dental check up?

Children in particular need to visit a dentist frequently, with a maximum of 6 months between appointments. As teeth grow in, problems can arise, such as misalignment, teeth growing in the wrong direction, and other serious concerns that can be corrected more easily if they are caught early. X-rays allows a dentist to monitor teeth as they develop and spot any potential issues and treat them at an optimal time. More so because kids start brushing by themselves at this age, they often do not do a thorough job and would often need a professional cleaning every now and then.
