Dental cleanings and exams are fundamental components of maintaining your child’s oral health. At Longhorn Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics, we prioritize these routine checkups to ensure your child’s smile remains vibrant and trouble-free. During each dental cleaning and exam, our dedicated pediatric dentist and team follow a meticulous process:
- Plaque and Tartar Removal: We gently and thoroughly remove plaque and tartar, also known as dental calculus, from your child’s teeth. This step is crucial in preventing tooth decay and gum disease.
- Flossing and Polishing: Our team flosses to remove any lingering debris between your child’s teeth, promoting overall dental hygiene. We also perform a professional polish to give your child’s teeth a healthy, radiant appearance.
- Comprehensive Dental Examination: A thorough examination of your child’s smile is conducted to identify any potential dental issues. This includes checking for cavities, gum problems and early signs of orthodontic concerns.
Dr. Reza Arzegar may also take dental X-rays to gain a deeper understanding of your child’s oral health, enabling us to provide precise and tailored care.
Regular pediatric dental cleanings and exams are pivotal in safeguarding your child’s oral wellbeing. They not only prevent cavities and gum disease but also ensure any dental issues are detected and addressed promptly.
We encourage parents to schedule these appointments every six months. However, if your child experiences dental emergencies, pain or injuries, please do not hesitate to reach out to us for immediate care. We are here to be your partners in caring for your child’s smile, and will make arrangements to meet with your child as soon as possible so they can regain their oral health, smile and comfort.
