Establishing an effective oral hygiene routine early on will help your child maintain a healthier mouth. One of the best ways to ensure your child’s teeth and gums remain as healthy as possible is to schedule regular dental checkups and cleanings. The friendly and experienced dentists at Millennium Dental in Stockton, CA, offer a wide range of pediatric dentistry services to help your child enjoy optimal oral health.
Regular Dental Examinations & Cleanings
Scheduling regular dental examinations and cleanings is one of the best things you can do for your child’s oral health. When your child visits the dentist regularly, potential oral health issues or orthodontic concerns can be identified early on when they are easier to treat. Early diagnosis also prevents any problems from getting worse and requiring more advanced or complicated treatment. Additionally, pediatric dental services, such as fluoride treatments and dental sealants, can prevent cavities and other issues.
Having your child’s teeth professionally cleaned at the dentist’s office regularly is also important to maintaining optimal oral health. Some oral health threats, like tartar buildup, cannot be cleaned off the teeth by simply brushing and flossing at home. The only way to remove tartar buildup from the teeth is with a professional cleaning at the dentist’s office. Dental professionals have the tools, training, and skills needed to completely remove tartar buildup.
