Children should visit a pediatric dentist every 6 months for a regular dental exam and cleaning. During this routine visit, the dentists will check for any developing problems, review your child’s oral health, growth, and development, and provide any treatments that may be needed. Please call Sunny Smiles Dentistry today at 805-644-5516 to learn more about dental exams and cleanings at one of our convenient locations: Oxnard, Ventura and Santa Barbara.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic yet important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time your child visits our dental practice for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help your child’s smile stay healthy. During their teeth cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean their teeth by removing any plaque or tartar, which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish their teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine their smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
We utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your child’s smile and make certain that they receive the dental care they need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
Our pediatric dentists recommend that your child visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if your child suffers from a dental emergency, pain, or injury. To schedule their next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your child’s smile!
