Children’s Dental Cleanings Are Important
It’s important to start maintaining good oral hygiene at a young age. That’s why we encourage parents in Asheville, Charlotte, Conover, Fayetteville, and other nearby areas to call the best kids’ dentist around: Smile Starters Dental. With several locations all over North Carolina, we’re able to clean the tiny teeth of many young patients to ensure they have good oral health.
Early childhood dental visits will make your child more comfortable at the dentist during future visits, increase our chances of detecting any developing dental problems, and encourage your child to develop good oral hygiene habits at home.
What We Do
Kids’ dental cleanings are a bit different from adult dental cleanings. All 20 of a child’s baby teeth will usually come in by the age of 3. Around the age of 4 or as late as 7, most children will lose their first baby tooth, and then others follow.
During your child’s dental cleanings, we will:
- Check your child’s teeth for placement, development, and health.
- Look for any potential problems with the gums and jaw.
- Remove any found plaque.
- Brush and floss.
Our staff is gentle and caring, and we will go above and beyond for your child’s smile. If you’re looking for a children’s dentist that specializes in dental cleanings and pediatric orthodontics, call Smile Starters Dental today!
