Kids Dental Cleanings
Encourage kids to practice positive dental hygiene habits in the Sacramento area
Developing healthy, strong teeth starts early on. For young children, one of the most important steps of their oral hygiene routine is a regular teeth cleaning exam at Kids Care Dental & Orthodontics. From the moment their first tooth erupts to the time that baby teeth are lost, we prepare children to take great care of their teeth!
During the early stages of your child’s oral health, their dentist will be able to monitor growth, remove plaque and tartar build-up and determine if there are any underlying issues. Get started today – schedule your kid’s teeth cleaning appointment online!
A Healthy Smile Starts Now
In the first decade, your children’s teeth will experience a lot of change and growth. While daily brushing is the first line of defense for a healthy smile, dental cleanings help parents reach what a toothbrush can’t. From age two, or at the first sign of new teeth, your child should start to see a pediatric dentist for dental cleanings.
We encourage Sacramento families to start dental care early because healthy baby teeth lead the way for healthy permanent teeth and fewer dental issues in adolescence. Strong primary teeth allow your child to chew comfortably, assist in proper speech development and build a foundation for positive, lifelong oral hygiene habits.
Our Dental Cleaning Process
During your child’s routine check-up with their dentist, they will begin with a general assessment to determine how your child’s teeth are developing. Kids’ teeth cleaning is similar to what is done for adults, which can include removal of plaque, cleaning and polishing teeth and fluoride treatment to protect your child’s mouth between appointments.
Pediatric dental cleanings are important for kids of all ages. Regular brushing and flossing are only half the job. Frequent dental exams can put a stop to common issues.
- Cavity prevention
- Reduce risk of disease and tooth decay
- Brighter smile
- Fresh breath
- Early detection of oral health issues
