Routine Cleanings & Exams
Regular dental cleanings are vital for your children. Routine exams and cleaning prevent plaque and cavities from forming on their teeth. During a typical dental cleaning session, your child’s pediatric dentist, Dr. Castillo, will evaluate their oral conditions, clean their teeth, and check for early signs of cavities. He might also apply sealant or fluoride, as per requirements. Children are at a higher risk of getting dental decays, and these help with preventive care. Our pediatric dentist might also recommend getting an oral x-ray or any other diagnostic procedure done to get a better understanding of your child’s overall oral health.
Apart from this, the sessions would also include discussions about your child’s dietary and oral hygiene habits. We would demonstrate the right ways of brushing and flossing techniques so that you can help your child maintain good oral health throughout. We would also give you some effective tips on how you can help your child prevent accidents or other oral health risks.
