Checkups & Cleanings
Children should receive two cleanings and checkups per year.
Dental checkups and cleanings for children are essential for laying the foundation of good oral health and establishing the value of receiving routine treatment in an effort to detect potential problems in their early stages.
During checkups, our dentists will look for signs of tooth decay, enamel wear and gum disease. We will also use diagnostic tools to evaluate the health of tissues beneath the surface – specifically the roots of teeth and the jaw. Diagnostic imaging can assist in revealing congenital and developmental abnormalities that might require the attention of a specialist such as an oral surgeon or orthodontist. Like adults, children can develop common oral health conditions including dental caries and inflamed or irritated gums (periodontal disease). Many times, these conditions develop due to diet and poor oral hygiene practices.
Dental hygiene visits are important for keeping teeth and gums clean – especially since young patients have difficulty reaching their back teeth when brushing and flossing. Cleanings are a gentle and non-invasive method for preserving and maintaining gum health and cleaning around the teeth so that tartar and plaque accumulation are controlled. Even if children clean their teeth thoroughly, they will still develop tartar that needs to be removed. A form of calcified plaque, tartar cannot be removed by flossing or brushing and must be removed with professional-grade dental instruments.
