Regular cleanings are an important part of maintaining good hygiene. You should schedule a cleaning for your kid every six months to prevent and detect problems before they become more serious.
The Cleaning Process
We start by using our tooth counter, a dental explorer in order to examine your kid’s teeth. We may also use our tooth camera (X-ray machine) to get a better look. We want to make sure the sugar bugs (cavities) are nowhere to be found.
During a cleaning, we will use an electric toothbrush, a motorized prophy brush, to clean and polish all the surfaces of your kid’s teeth. As we clean, Mr. Thirsty, our suction straw will suck up the excess liquid in your child’s mouth.
After the Cleaning
Afterward, we may apply bubbles or jelly, a fluoride treatment that will help strengthen your kid’s teeth and keep them healthy. Remember, through regular cleanings, we can keep the sugar bugs away and keep your kid’s smile healthy for years to come.
