Regular teeth cleanings and dental checkups are an essential part of a healthy oral care routine. Even with the most diligent at-home teeth care, it is still important for your child to visit the dentist as scheduled.
A routine dental check-up usually includes teeth cleaning, an oral exam, and annual x-rays. Your child’s pediatric dentist at Golnick Pediatric Dentistry in Taylor or West Bloomfield, MI will keep watch for early signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other health concerns, and take immediate action if necessary.
During your child’s appointment, the hygienist will first perform a thorough professional dental cleaning to eliminate built-up plaque and tartar that may have accumulated over time since their last visit. After the cleaning, the pediatric dentist will examine your child’s mouth for decay, infection, or any other oral conditions.
Following the checkup, we will discuss any concerns we have about your child’s oral health while providing you and your child with dental care tips to practice for a healthier smile.
