Dental Cleanings

A dental cleaning is a professional cleaning you receive from your dental hygienist and are usually performed every 6 months but sometimes children, especially those in braces, may need to come every 3 months to prevent decay and promote healing of gingivitis. Cleanings should be performed every six months to prevent excessive plaque buildup. Plaque left untreated can lead to unhealthy gums and tooth decay. A routine cleaning should include polishing, scaling away tarter, flossing, and a fluoride treatment. We recommend topical fluoride treatments for all children to help replenish the natural fluoride in their teeth.
