Child-Focused Routine Cleanings

Small X-Rays that accommodate small mouths

Child-focused routine cleanings are regular dental check-ups and cleanings designed specifically for children. These appointments typically involve a thorough cleaning of the teeth and gums, as well as an examination of the mouth to check for any signs of dental issues.

During a child-focused routine cleaning, the hygiene assistant and doctor will clean the teeth and gums using special tools to remove any plaque, tartar and debris that may have accumulated since the last visit. They may also use fluoride treatments to strengthen the teeth and help prevent cavities. The dentist will then examine the teeth and gums for any signs of decay or other issues such as gum disease or misaligned teeth. They may also take X-rays if necessary to get a better view of the teeth and jaw.

Overall, child-focused routine cleanings are an important part of maintaining good oral health in children and should be done regularly, typically every six months or as recommended by the child’s dentist.
