Taking your children to the dentist for a teeth cleaning is an easy way to make their smiles look healthy and bright. Regular teeth cleanings are important for kids, who should go at least twice a year.
Cleaning procedures can also help the dentist find out if your son or daughter has been brushing and flossing at home.
Children should have their first visit to the dentist early in their childhood—by the time the child is one year old or has one tooth.
During a teeth cleaning, the dentist can check your child’s teeth for any problems as well as clean the child’s teeth. Most teeth cleanings usually include these steps:
It’s always good to tell your child why they need to go to the dentist. Getting regular teeth cleanings doesn’t just help prevent cavities and tooth loss—it can also help prevent bigger problems like gum disease and tooth decay.
