Our philosophy is that preventative dentistry is the best dentistry we can offer and professional dental cleanings are a key component of your child’s preventative care plan. Using special instruments and our teeth polishing super skills, we’re able to reach every nook and cranny and get rid of yucky tartar (hardened plaque) that can’t be defeated with a regular toothbrush and floss. The result? Healthy teeth and gums and pearly whites that are, well, pearly and white.
Benefits of Dental Cleanings
See Ya, Sugar Bugs
At the age of one, if kids have at least nine teeth, we recommend starting regular dental cleanings. We employ different behavioral techniques to ensure kids are comfortable and at ease. Then, we show them all of the tools we’ll be using for cleaning and how they work before actually diving in.
At your child’s appointment, after the dentist completes the exam, one of our friendly hygienists will floss and use their handy dandy tool to scrape off tartar and plaque. They’ll finish up by cleaning and polishing the teeth with a toothbrush and toothpaste. We top off these visits with a fluoride treatment.
