We like to see children for routine cleanings and exams in order to keep them in good health. Through preventive care, we can guide your child’s growth and development and monitor the oral disease process. Prevention and minimally invasive treatment options are always our first line of defense.
A routine dental cleaning is as easy as the name implies. We’ll start out with a thorough and gentle brushing, making sure to make their teeth shine and remove stains without causing discomfort.
The final step will be flossing, which may be followed by a recommended fluoride varnish application. We also recommend X-rays when deemed appropriate.
If your child has braces, it’s still important to come in for a teeth cleaning. In fact, it’s even more important! Traditional braces make cleaning teeth a lot more difficult due to the brackets and wires. When they come in for a teeth cleaning, we’ll be able to spot any areas they aren’t reaching when they brush and give useful tips for how to improve.
At All Smiles Pediatric Dentistry, our goal is to help your child have the best oral health possible and prevent oral disease. When you bring them in for a routine cleaning and exam, we’re ready to keep their mouth healthy! Contact us today to schedule an appointment!
