We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons: when we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach at home, such as underneath the gums. Afterwards, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! If needed we will also take digital films of the teeth to detect any cavities or problems in the bone, and can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.
These important appointments serve not only to clean the teeth, but allow for a thorough examination ensuring proper growth and development, ruling out any pathologies, assessing orthodontic issues, and reviewing home care techniques. This includes coaching on proper brushing, flossing, eating and drinking habits, to pave the way for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
