I've been thinking about taking my kids (3 and 5) to the dentist. They have never been. I've been reading quite a bit on here about cavities found in small children and toddlers, even babies! What I'm wondering, though, is if these kinds of cavities have been happening to kids for eons, and it is only with increased trips to dentists that they are being noticed? My parents didn't take any of us to the dentist until we had our second teeth. Same for EVERYONE I know. Maybe it was a money thing, maybe they just weren't so medically inclined back then. My teeth are great. Always have been. I've been to the dentist twice in the last twenty years. No cavities.
So what did YOUR parents do? Did you see the dentist before your adult teeth came in? Did you have cavities? Did they get filled?
