Dental Checkups & Teeth Cleanings for Kids
It would be best to prioritize regular dental care visits every six months. Standard dental care includes dental exams, cleaning, fluoride treatment, and x-rays.
First, it’s great to give your child a general idea of what to expect at the dental cleaning. Explain why going to the dentist and having healthy teeth is crucial.
If your child is less than one year old, make sure you clean their gums with a sanitized damp cloth if they have teeth that haven’t grown yet. Children older than three years old demonstrate the correct brushing pattern to prevent missed spots. For your child’s gum safety, ensure they use a soft-bristled toothbrush to brush their teeth. Limit foods that cause tooth decay, such as sweets and sweetened juices. Please encourage your child to eat fruits because the fibers keep their teeth clean.
The first visit will help your child get comfortable with visiting the dentist. Their dental visit lasts 30-45 minutes and includes a complete exam of the teeth, jaws, bite, gums, and mouth tissues. This ensures proper tooth growth. Our dentists polish and scrape tartar and stains from their teeth. You and your child will also get a demonstration of how to brush and floss properly. Regular dental visits are vital to strengthen your child’s teeth and examine tooth problems.
