Maintaining good oral hygiene involves taking good care of your gums, teeth and mouth by brushing, flossing, eating and drinking healthy foods and beverages and maintaining regular appointments in our office.
No matter how well your child brushes and flosses, tartar will build up on the teeth over time. That is why it is important to have regular cleanings, twice a year, by one of our dental hygienists. During your child’s appointment our dental hygienist will professionally remove tarter and plaque build-up, polish your child’s teeth and, when indicated, provide a fluoride treatment and take digital dental x-rays to further evaluate the condition of your child’s teeth.
Following the cleaning, one of our board certified pediatric dentists will review the x-rays and preform a thorough exam of your child’s teeth and mouth for signs of tooth decay or other problems.
