One of the most important aspects of maintaining your child’s dental health are regular checkups and cleanings.

Children should have regular dental exams every six months, starting at age 1. This allows our pediatric dentist to ensure that your child’s teeth are healthy and identify any issues as soon as they begin. If cavities are identified early, our pediatric dentist can show you where they are located and sometimes prevent these teeth from requiring treatment. If treatment is required, they may only require very conservative restorations. We will also be able to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth.

Cleanings are also important, both for young children who are still learning how to properly maintain their dental hygiene and for older kids who may not prioritize brushing their teeth. For children who are in orthodontics, more frequent cleanings every 3 months are also beneficial to maintaining the health of their teeth and gums. Our hygiene team will teach both parents and children how to properly care for their teeth at home to maintain their healthy, beautiful smiles.
