While daily care of a child’s teeth is the best way to prevent cavities and decay, routine dental cleanings and check-ups ensure that problems don’t go undetected.
We recommend that our patients visit us for a dental cleaning and check-up every six months. At this appointment, we will keep your child’s teeth healthy by removing plaque build-up and food debris that may be stuck between teeth. This is an important part of dental care because it helps prevent bacteria from continuing to grow in these areas and potentially turning into other dental diseases, such as caries (cavities).
As a Pediatric Dentist, Dr. Jerry is specially trained to monitor the growth and development of your child’s teeth and gums. By scheduling routine dental cleanings and check-ups, you give us the opportunity to check-in with you and your child and review oral hygiene, brushing and flossing techniques, dietary tips for healthy teeth and also identify any areas of concern before they become problematic.
