Some children will experience their first dental cleaning on their first visit, while others will not. Typically, a child’s first visit consists of an introduction to your child’s oral health and what steps should be taken to maintain it. When your child receives their first set of baby teeth is generally when your child will receive their first in-office dental cleaning.
It is important to make sure your child’s adult teeth grow in well, which is why our dentists carefully examine your child’s teeth, gums, jaw, and bite. If our dentists notice any signs of plaque buildup, then your child will be recommended to have a dental cleaning performed.
It takes a special kind of dentist to work with children in the dental chair: a pediatric dentist. We want to make sure their first impression of dentists is a positive one, as this could impact them when they are older. Our pediatric dentists know what makes children happy, making sure they leave our office with a smile on their face.
