Teeth Cleaning for Kids in Las Vegas
Dental health for kids is about more than just beautiful teeth. The condition of their teeth continuously affects their whole body health. That’s why it is important for parents to encourage their little ones to brush and floss their teeth. We recommend children visit their dentist every 6 months for an exam and cleaning.
Why Are Preventative Visits Important?
Your child’s smile will affect their comfort and their self-esteem. Toothache, tooth loss, and bad oral hygiene could all negatively impact your child’s life. On the other hand, a vibrant, healthy smile can give them comfort and confidence!
During your child’s checkup at our pediatric dentistry, Dr. Dhillon and his team will complete a full oral exam, looking for signs of:
- Gum disease
- Chips and fractures
- Worn down enamel
- Bite problems
Dental health for kids is important because minor health problems can worsen, and even affect your child’s systemic health down the road. Poor oral health is linked to diabetes, heart disease, and dementia. Fortunately, it’s easy to maintain a healthy smile with regular preventative care.
Does my Child Need a Checkup Even if they have Healthy Teeth?
Your child’s teeth and mouth continue to grow and change as they get older. Children’s diets and personalities also change as they grow older. This is why it’s extremely important that your child visit their dentist at least twice a year to maintain a healthy smile.
If your child visits their pediatric dentistry just twice a year, there’s a good chance the dental professionals will be able to detect decay and disease before it escalates. Remember that some cavities are too small to detect with the naked eye, but can be seen with x-rays and other diagnostic technology. By treating the cary early, your child may be avoiding a root canal or tooth extraction down the road.
