Pediatric teeth cleanings are routine, pain-free treatments that can find a huge range of potential dental issues and prevent them from becoming serious. A lot of children do not go to the dentist until they are around three-years-old, but at this point, major dental issues may have the chance to damage their teeth or gums. Semi-annual preventive cleanings and effective, early treatment of possible problems can assure your child’s smile for a lifetime. Schedule a teeth cleaning appointment now and encourage good habits for your child that last a lifetime.
he Importance of Regular Teeth Cleaning
Whenever your child eats, plaque can build up in their mouth, though it is typically removed by brushing and flossing. It’s not hard for plaque to build up, based on your child’s diet, hygiene routines or heredity. Plaque buildup can harbor bacteria which can then create cavities or gum illness. If plaque hardens into tartar, it is even more difficult to remove. Cavities can cause lasting harm to a child’s mouth. They can inflict pain, inflammation, infection and cause loss. Routine cleanings and checkups can detect issues before they occur.
Problems Typical Cleanings Can Avert
