In this post from Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, we examine children’s dental cleanings.
Does your child need a professional dental cleaning if you practice dental hygiene at home? The short answer is yes.
Let’s consider it.
Both processes are critical. They reinforce each other. They work in tandem to protect your child’s smile as they grow.
We encourage preventative dentistry by:
- Brushing—help your little one 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 proper dental hygiene.
At Stephen Ratcliff Family and Cosmetic Dentistry in Arlington TX, we can treat everyone in your home with our family dentistry. Patients from Mansfield and Grand Prairie also come to our practice for complete restorative dentistry. Call to schedule an appointment today!
