Contact Triad Pediatric Dentistry for teeth cleaning for kids in Greensboro, NC
Good habits form early, and one of the most crucial things your children need to learn is proper oral hygiene. That means proper flossing technique, brushing daily, and routine dental visits. Dr. Isharani is a pediatric dentist in Greensboro, NC, that offers teeth cleaning for kids.
Protecting your child’s oral health
Preventive care means your child can avoid major dental procedures and maintain healthy teeth and proper jaw alignment for years to come. During each visit, Dr. Isharani will talk to your kids about the best way to care for their teeth and show them problem areas they may miss during at-home care. She may also recommend dental sealants to prevent tooth decay in areas that are most prone to cavities.
She will make a visual examination of their teeth, gums, and bite, and keep an eye out for signs that your child needs orthodontics. Braces and aligners can straighten crooked teeth and keep the jaw developing appropriately, which can lower the risk of tooth decay, gum disease, and snoring. After the exam, a hygienist will thoroughly clean your child’s teeth, removing plaque, tartar, and other debris stuck to the teeth or trapped underneath the gum line. At the end of each cleaning, we apply a fluoride rinse to kill bacteria that cause tooth decay.
At-home care is key
Brushing and flossing generally require assistance from the parent for the first ten years. However, they should be actively involved in the process, and you can take turns and keep a positive dialogue going about how brushing protects their health. Dr. Isharani will educate you and your child about the best oral hygiene practices and discuss how diet and nutrition can affect the development of your child’s mouth.
Your child should see the dentist at least twice a year to keep their teeth healthy and their smiles bright. Our team is dedicated to preserving children’s teeth in a fun, family-friendly environment, and we offer sedation services to help your child safely deal with anxiety during procedures.
