Experience Thorough Dental Care for Your Child’s Grin

If you practice good oral care routines at home with your child, like brushing twice a day and flossing at least once, you are building a habit they will continue into their adult years. However, that won’t be enough to stay ahead of any dental care problems. That’s why it’s necessary to bring your child to us for cleanings and exams twice a year. Here is how it will work:

  • First, we will perform a quick oral exam of your child’s mouth and begin cleaning their teeth to remove plaque and tartar.
  • We’ll follow it up by brushing their teeth with a high-powered brush and flossing to remove any remaining food particles and debris.
  • Afterward, we will use special dental tools to check for cavities, gum disease, and other signs of potential oral health issues. We’ll even screen for oral cancer.
  • If necessary, and with your permission, we will perform an X-ray to take a closer look at any signs of cavities or infection. If any further action is necessary, we’ll work with you on developing a treatment plan to restore your child’s smile.

For cleanings and exams in Littleton, call us today at 720-637-1760 to schedule an appointment or schedule one online. Make sure you take advantage of our new patient special, so your child (ages 4+) can receive a cleaning, exam, and two X-rays for only $109. You can also sign up for our membership plan for savings on our treatments.

Common Questions About Cleanings and Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our young patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you about any problems your child is having and do a quick exam of your child’s mouth. Your dental hygienist will perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, your dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How often should my child get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that your child comes in every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on their oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. Your child may need to visit us more often if they are susceptible to tooth decay and cavities.

Why are dental cleanings and exams necessary?

You should schedule a dental cleaning and exam every six months as part of your child’s healthy lifestyle. That’s because their oral hygiene routine at home is not enough to prevent harmful bacteria from causing cavities, gum disease, and other problems. Only a hygienist and dentist have the training and proper equipment to remove plaque buildup and detect potential oral health threats before they can become bigger problems.
