During cleanings, we perform a “tell, show, do” procedure to get your child excited about their new oral hygiene routine. At the end of the exam, your child will recite to you and the hygienist how often they should brush and floss their teeth. Children also get to pick a surprise. Visits with our team go beyond a routine cleaning. It’s a fun and exciting experience for the child and parents.
Starting dental hygiene habits early in life is crucial for a healthy smile and a growing body, and part of that regimen includes routine teeth cleanings and check-ups with your dentist. Children should visit the dentist every 6 months – just like adults! The overall health of your child’s mouth sets the tone for their oral health for life. Teaching them to properly brush and floss at home is step one, but the next step in healthy smiles for life is making sure to fit in routine dental cleanings.
