If My Child Brushes and Flosses, Does She Need a Dental Cleaning?

dental cleanings Burlington

This message from Pediatric Dental Center focuses on professional dental cleanings. You might wonder if your child needs a professional dental cleaning if you already practice dental hygiene daily at home.

The answer is that both processes are vital because they work together to maintain oral health.

We encourage preventative dental care in our young patients with:

  • Brushing
  • Flossing
  • Healthy diet
  • Regular dental cleanings
  • Regular checkups

Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of daily oral care by removing the tartar that can accumulate in spite of daily brushing and flossing. In fact, when plaque hardens into tartar, it can only be removed with special tools used by a hygienist.

At Pediatric Dental Center our goal is to make sure our young patients never get a cavity. We offer preventative dentistry and specialize in early dental care, with offices in Burlington, Cold Spring and Crestview Hills KY. Call us to schedule your child’s next checkup today!
