A lifetime of healthy smiles starts with regular visits to the dentist for routine cleanings. At Dr. Kwon Pediatric Dentistry, our team will show your child how to floss, brush, and develop a positive oral health routine that can lead to healthy smiles as an adult. Your child’s regularly scheduled dental cleanings are an opportunity for discovery and education, and our team identifies and talks about each instrument they use throughout the visit.
At Your Cleaning Appointment
Our dental team follows a “tell, show, do” model that helps kids get excited about oral hygiene and build a lasting dental care routine. At the end of your visit, the dental hygienist will have your child recite to you how often they should brush and floss their teeth. Before you leave, your child will also get to pick out a surprise! A visit to our office is a fun and exciting experience for everyone!
Why Regular Dental Cleanings are Important for Kids
Despite what you may think, routine cleanings on your child’s baby teeth are just as important as routine cleanings on adult teeth. The overall health of your child’s mouth sets the tone for their oral health for life. Teaching them to properly brush and floss at home is step one, but the next step in healthy smiles for life is making sure to fit in routine dental cleanings.
Toothbrushes and floss can’t get into all the ridges and grooves in our teeth, so it’s important to have a professional take a look at them. We recommend bringing your child in for their first visit at age one and coming back for a visit every six months, just as you do for your own teeth. We’ll make sure your child’s oral health regimen sets them up for success for life!
