Oral Health Checkups & Cleanings
Checkups & Cleanings
The best gift you can give your child is the key to healthy living. Oral health is vital to overall health and well-being. Teaching your child how to take care of her teeth from the very beginning is crucial if you want her to be an adult with good oral hygiene. Developing healthy habits early on is important. The American Dental Association recommends that children have their first visit to the dentist when the first tooth comes in or by their first birthday. Early visits allow the child to get used to coming to the dentist for pediatric dental treatment and keep the fear factor from being an issue.
At Park Slope Pediatric Dental, your child will enjoy his visit to the dentist. With all the amenities we offer and all the fun provided for your child, dental checkups and cleanings will be a treat. Regular visits to the dentist can prevent problems from developing in the first place. We keep an eye on your child’s teeth and intervene early if we see an issue in the making.
Professional cleanings help to keep teeth and gums strong and healthy. We get rid of plaque buildup on the teeth to prevent cavities from forming and we check the gums and surrounding tissues to ensure that everything is as it should be.
Comprehensive Dental Exams
Dental problems usually occur slowly giving us plenty of time to discover them and correct them before they get serious. We check to make sure no cavities are developing and if we do see an issue, we bring it to your attention so it can be dealt with quickly. With the comprehensive dental exams we provide at Park Slope Pediatric Dental, you can rest assured that your child will not have any surprises where their dental health is concerned.
