Why Are Regular Dental Checkups & Cleanings Important for Kids?
It’s a common misconception that baby teeth don’t need to be maintained since they eventually fall out. In reality, they serve several important purposes – from helping your child enjoy their favorite foods and speak clearly to keeping their bite properly aligned. While consistently brushing and flossing goes a long way in keeping their teeth and gums healthy, their biannual visits are also important so Dr. Rohner can catch (and treat) oral health issues early on, clean the hard-to-reach areas of their mouth, provide recommendations on which products they should use at home, and answer any questions you have.
What to Expect During a Kid’s Dental Checkup
Of course, there are several factors that need to be considered, including how old your child is and whether they are a new or long-time patient. However, the checkup usually starts with X-rays or an oral exam. Dr. Rohner will carefully check the condition of your child’s teeth, gums, and bite to ensure that everything looks as it should. If she notices anything concerning – whether it’s a small cavity or an impacted wisdom tooth – she can bring it to your attention and put a plan in place to preserve and protect your child’s healthy smile moving forward.
What to Expect During a Kid’s Dental Cleaning
Your child’s dental cleaning will be with a talented, compassionate, and kind member of our team. After ensuring they are comfortable in the treatment chair, we will explain to them the tools we will be using and what to expect. Then, we will get started! Using special instruments, we will gently remove plaque, tartar, and other debris from their teeth. We will also floss and polish their teeth thoroughly to ensure that they have a smile that’s both healthy and beautiful at the end of their visit!
