Pediatric teeth cleanings are routine, painless procedures that can find a wide variety of possible dental issues and prevent them from progressing. Many kids do not visit the dentist until they are three-years-old, but by this time serious dental problems might have the chance to harm their teeth or gums. Regular precautionary cleanings and effective, premature treatment of potential problems can protect your child’s smile for a lifetime. Schedule a teeth cleaning appointment today and help create healthy practices for your child that last a lifetime.
The Importance of Regular Teeth Cleaning
Whenever your child eats, plaque can build up in their mouth, though it is generally removed by brushing and flossing. It’s not hard for plaque to build up, based on your child’s diet, hygiene routines or genetics. Plaque increase can harbor germs which can then create cavities or gum infection. If plaque solidifies into tartar, it is even more difficult to remove. Cavities can create permanent injury to a child’s mouth. They can cause pain, inflammation, disease and lead to tooth loss. Regular cleanings and exams can find issues before they occur.
Problems Semi-Annual Cleanings Can Stop
It’s important to take your child in for routine cleanings to avoid the subsequent issues:
- Tooth decay
- Bleeding gums
- Gum disease
