We generally suggest young patients come and see us every six months for a check-up and clean. This is an easy way for us to keep a close eye on their dental health and a scale and polish is an excellent preventative dental care treatment.
Our dentist will carry out a detailed but very gentle examination of their mouth, assessing the condition of their teeth and gums. We do need to take digital x-rays periodically, to check the development of their teeth and jaws, including teeth yet to erupt. An x-ray may also be needed if we suspect a tooth is infected or decayed, but we only take these diagnostic images when necessary.
Just like adults, children can benefit from having their teeth professionally cleaned. We will gently scale their teeth to remove any hardened plaque, before carefully polishing their teeth. Hopefully your child will enjoy the sensation of having a beautifully clean mouth.
