What’s involved in professional teeth cleaning for children?
During dental cleaning visit for your child at Beverly pediatric Dentistry, we’ll:
- Remove the calculus (hard calcified deposits on the surface of the teeth) using specialized dental instruments;
- Get rid of the other sticky plaque formed on the teeth that serves as a breeding ground for living bacteria;
- Polish your child’s teeth to remove stains; and
- Go over instruction of effective oral hygiene with your child.
Why should my child have his/her teeth cleaned every six months?
Having a teeth cleaning for children every six months is a good routine for any family. A professional teeth cleaning also serves as an early warning system for your dental health. During teeth cleaning appointment, Dr. Mohammadi, your local pediatric dentist can look for signs of potential problems such as cavities, receding gums, or other medical problems – and get an early start on correcting them.
At-home oral hygiene, in conjunction with regular teeth cleaning visits, will keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy and strong. No matter how consistent you or your child are at brushing and flossing, a routine professional teeth cleaning is necessary for optimal dental health.
