Dental cleaning for children
Good oral health is essential for your child’s overall health. It’s important to help your child develop healthy oral care habits, such as regular brushing and flossing and limiting sugary foods.
Another important step in maintaining your child’s oral health is undergoing regular dental cleanings.
What does a dental cleaning for children involve?
A dental cleaning for children is a procedure in which the plaque and tartar are removed from your child’s teeth. Plaque is a sticky, colorless film that forms on teeth and consists of bacteria and food particles. If plaque is not regularly removed, it can harden and form tartar, which is more difficult to remove and can lead to gums disease.
How often does your child need a dental cleaning?
It’s recommended to have your child undergo a dental cleaning every six months. This can help prevent gum disease and other oral problems. However, the frequency of dental cleanings may vary depending on your child’s individual needs.
What can you do to prepare your child for a dental cleaning?
Talk to your child about the benefits of good oral health and explain why regular dental checkups and cleanings are important. You can also help by assisting your child in building a good oral care routine. Encourage your child to brush and floss regularly and avoid sugary foods.
What can you expect during a dental cleaning for your child?
During a dental cleaning, your child will sit in a dental chair with their head tilted back. We will use a polishing brush to remove plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth. We will then examine your child’s teeth and gums for any signs of decay or other issues.
By taking your child’s oral health seriously and scheduling regular dental cleanings, you can help improve and maintain your child’s oral health and prevent cavities
