Children’s Dental Cleanings

Bringing your child in for a dental cleaning can be a great way to promote healthy teeth and gums. We will make your child feel right at home and help them feel at ease during their visit. We’ll check for any oral health issues and provide a thorough cleaning that will remove any buildup of plaque or tartar. Our state-of-the-art equipment and technology allow us to diagnose any problems early on, such as cavities, and prevent them from becoming bigger issues down the line. We also take the time to educate both caregivers and children on proper oral hygiene practices to help maintain healthy teeth and gums.

How Long Does a Teeth Cleaning Take?

Typically, the duration of a teeth cleaning can vary based on several factors, including the age of the patient, the amount of buildup on the teeth, and their overall oral health. However, a standard teeth cleaning appointment usually takes anywhere from 30 to 60 minutes. During the teeth cleaning appointment, one of our highly skilled dental hygienists will use special tools to gently remove plaque, tartar, and other harmful substances from your child’s teeth. They will also polish the teeth to remove surface stains, leaving your child’s mouth feeling fresh and clean. Our team will also check for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease while cleaning, ensuring that your child maintains optimal oral health.

Fluoride Treatment & Dental Sealants

The importance of maintaining optimal dental health for your child shouldn’t be overlooked. That’s why our team offers a range of preventative treatments, including fluoride treatment and dental sealants. Fluoride treatment is a quick, painless, and non-invasive process that involves applying a liquid fluoride to the teeth to help prevent tooth decay. Dental sealants, on the other hand, are protective coatings that are applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth to help prevent cavities. These treatments are safe and effective in helping to protect your child’s teeth, and we recommend them as part of your child’s regular dental check-ups. Our friendly and approachable team is here to answer any questions you may have about these treatments, so don’t hesitate to ask.

Comprehensive Dental Exams

We highly recommend comprehensive pediatric dental exams as a crucial component of regular dental visits for children. During these exams, our team of experienced dental professionals will thoroughly examine your child’s teeth, gums, and oral cavity to identify any potential issues or areas of concern. Our pediatric dental exams involve more than just a quick look in your child’s mouth. We take a comprehensive approach to examine every aspect of their oral health, including evaluating their bite, assessing their jaw development, and checking for any signs of tooth decay or gum disease. We understand that each child is unique, which is why we take a personalized approach to every exam, tailoring our procedures to fit the individual needs of each patient.
