Questions about dental cleanings & exams for kids
Why are dental cleanings necessary for my child?
Even if your child’s permanent teeth haven’t erupted yet, regular cleanings are a must. They help remove plaque build-up, prevent cavities, and set the foundation for lifelong oral health.
How often should my child have a dental exam?
Just like grown-ups, children and teens should have a dental exam every 6 months to ensure their teeth and gums are in tip-top shape.
Will my child receive fluoride treatment during their visit?
Yes! Our West Orange dental cleaning & dental exam includes a fluoride application to strengthen your child’s teeth and prevent cavities.
How do you ensure my child is comfortable during the procedure?
Our team uses fun language to explain procedures, offers distractions, and, if needed, provides gentle sedation options to keep them relaxed.
At what age should my child start regular dental visits?
It’s best to start when their first tooth appears or by their first birthday.
