Cleaning your child’s teeth at home is essential but not enough for optimal pediatric dental care. You should incorporate professional dental cleanings in your little one’s oral care regimen to eliminate accumulated plaque and tartar. Regular dental checkups from a young age set your child up for good oral habits from childhood through adulthood.
Has it been a while since your child had professional teeth cleaning? Or perhaps you have never considered a dental cleaning for your young one? Whatever the case, it’s never too late to restore your child’s oral health. Please get in touch with Sunny Family Dental of Chino Hills, California, for gentle pediatric teeth cleaning.
A routine exam at a dentist’s office lasts about an hour, but the benefits are long-lasting. The process starts by making your child comfortable. We use age-appropriate communication to explain to your child what to expect during the cleaning. We also use distraction tactics like handheld toys, soothing music, and cartoon shows to keep your child relaxed.
Once your child is comfortable, our dental team probes your young one’s mouth for signs of cavities, gum disease, and misalignment. If your child is of appropriate age, we’ll recommend safe digital X-rays to have an all-rounded view of their dental health.
After the dental exam, we gently clean your child’s teeth to remove built-in plaque and tartar. After a thorough cleaning, we floss and polish their teeth to remove surface stains and other deposits. Before you leave, we’ll provide tailor-made education on caring for your child’s oral health until the next dental appointment.
Children typically get their first tooth within six months. Dentists recommend parents bring children for a visit six months after the tooth erupts or before the first birthday. Pediatric dental visits allow us to monitor the child’s oral health condition and overall development to correct issues early enough.
During dental checkups, we also professionally clean your child’s teeth, which yields numerous benefits, including the following:
Like clockwork, you shouldn’t forget bi-annual dental appointments for your child. Never put off routine dental cleanings because they offer your child numerous immediate and long-term benefits.
