What to Know about Children’s Dental Cleaning

HomeBlogWhat to Know about Children’s Dental Cleaning

Your children’s dental hygiene is just as important as your own, even for just their baby teeth, which is why you need to help them brush and floss regularly as well as schedule the necessary dentist appointments. These appointments can make both children and parents nervous, but we at Smile Cove Pediatric Dentist are here to help make them less stressful. Here are a few things you should know about children’s dental cleaning.

The Importance of Children’s Dental Cleaning

  • Know when to schedule: You should schedule the first children’s dental cleaning as early as the appearance of the first tooth or their first birthday. This can allow us to clear away any plaque or buildup that could cause issues like tooth decay or gum disease if left unchecked for too long. After that first visit, you should schedule an appointment every six months for your child.
  • Know what to expect: Knowing what to expect at the children’s dental cleaning can also make it less stressful. At every cleaning, we will remove any plaque or tartar from your child’s teeth, floss and polish the teeth, and perform a close examination of their teeth to check the gums and for any signs of damage or any other concerns for their teeth.
  • We will always make it as easy as possible: We understand that children’s dental cleaning can be scary for your child. That’s why we always work hard to keep them comfortable the entire time. We have staff that are friendly, gentle, and accommodating with all children, and we do everything to make sure your child has a good experience while in our care.
