Here at Pediatric Dental Associates of Manhattan, we are proud to offer dental cleanings to our patients.
We recommend routine dental cleanings for several reasons. When we perform a professional cleaning, we remove the buildup of plaque and tartar. We also clean the parts of your child’s teeth that are hard to reach, such as underneath the gums. A check-up every six months is recommended in order prevent cavities and other dental problems.
After a cleaning, we will polish your child’s teeth so that they shine! We can also apply a fluoride treatment, if necessary, to help prevent tooth decay.
Next, we will do a thorough examination so that we can see how the teeth are doing. This examination ensures that your child doesn’t have any problems that need to be taken care of. It is our goal to catch any problems and fix them before they become bigger ones. We will also go over home care to make sure your child is getting everything he or she needs to have optimal oral health.
