In this post from Mirelez Wellness Dental in Fresno, we look at children’s dental cleanings.
Does your child need a professional dental cleaning if you practice dental hygiene at home?
Short answer? Yes.
Both are important. They reinforce each other. They work in tandem to protect your son or daughter’s smile as they grow.
We encourage patients to practice preventative dentistry by:
- Brushing—help your child brush their teeth then clean thoroughly afterwards
- Flossing—start as soon as your toddler has two adjacent teeth
- Healthy diet–limit sugary snacks and beverages
- Regular pediatric dental cleanings with a fluoride treatment
- Regular examinations
Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of daily oral care by removing the plaque and tarter that can accumulate even with daily dental hygiene.
When plaque hardens, it can only be taken off with special tools.
