Pediatric teeth cleanings are routine, painless treatments that can detect a huge range of potential dental problems and stop them from progressing. Many children do not go to the dentist until they are around three-years-old, but at this point, major dental issues could have time to harm their teeth or gums. Semi-annual preventive cleanings and active, premature treatment of potential problems can assure your child’s smile for a lifetime. Schedule a teeth cleaning appointment now and help create healthy habits for your child that will last forever.
Why Ongoing Teeth Cleaning Matters
Whenever your child eats, plaque can build up in their mouth, though it is typically removed by brushing and flossing. It’s easy for plaque to grow, based on your child’s diet, hygiene routines or heredity. Plaque increase can host germs which can then lead to cavities or gum disease. If plaque hardens into tartar, it is even more difficult to remove. Cavities can cause lasting damage to a child’s mouth. They can lead to pain, inflammation, infection and eventually to tooth loss. Normal cleanings and checkups can identify problems before they happen.
Problems Typical Cleanings Can Prevent
It’s important to take your child in for routine cleanings to avoid the subsequent issues:
- Tooth decay
- Bleeding gums
- Periodontal disease
