Teeth Cleanings Q & A

What types of dental cleanings are there for children?

Dr. Sina and the Kids Tooth Drs provide comprehensive dental care for your child, including a thorough checkup and dental cleaning to remove plaque and tartar buildup.

They also offer sealants as part of the teeth cleaning package as a preventive measure. Sealants help protect your child’s teeth from cavities and keep them healthy and strong.

How often should my child be getting a teeth cleaning?

The American Academy of Dentistry recommends a checkup once every six months, and this visit usually includes a teeth cleaning. Dr. Sina and the Kids Tooth Drs are ready to see your child within six months after their first tooth comes in, or during the year your child turns 1, whichever is sooner.

The first dental visit is the ideal time to build a relationship with Dr. Sina and her friendly staff so your child feels less intimidated about coming to the office for teeth cleanings and other procedures. After that, Dr. Sina will see your child at least once every six months.

How can my child keep their teeth clean between treatments?

Dr. Sina and her staff take the time to educate your child about the importance of daily brushing and flossing.

She might recommend a certain type of toothbrush based on your child’s oral health condition and encourage you to serve as an example with a daily brushing and flossing routine. This is the best way to keep your child’s teeth and gums clean and healthy between cleanings at Dentistry for Children.

What happens if my child misses a teeth cleaning appointment?
