Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining your oral health. During your regular checkup, your hygienist or assistant will:
- Polish and scale your child’s teeth to remove the plaque and tartar from the tooth surfaces.
- Inspect your teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease.
- Place a concentrated fluoride treatment to help their teeth stay strong. You will need to wait at least 8 hours before you brush your child’s teeth at home.
- Then our dentist will do a thorough examination to look for any problems you may not see or feel, check for cavities or areas of decay, address any areas of concern you may have for your child!
