Cleanings / Hygiene

While brushing and flossing are tremendously important for good dental health, plaque and tartar can still accumulate on your child’s teeth. Therefore, we recommend biannual dental cleanings as a part of our young patients’ dental care routine.

A dental hygienist can get rid of any stubborn buildup, especially in hard-to-reach spots. During your visit, after scraping off plaque with special gritty toothpaste, our hygienist will clean each tooth on all sides with an ultrasonic tool, then finish the cleaning by flossing and polishing the teeth.
