Pediatric Dental Cleanings At Gilbert Dental Center

Why Are Pediatric Dental Cleanings So Important?

The top reasons children may face dental issues are cavities and gum disease, which is why, in addition to a good dental hygiene routine, regular professional cleaning appointments are crucial for pediatric oral health at any age. Even with diligent daily brushing and flossing, some plaque may remain between their teeth and along the gum lines, eventually hardening into tartar. Professional dental cleanings effectively remove tartar, helping to keep their teeth and gums healthy.

How Often Should Children Have Dental Cleanings?

In general, pediatric patients of all ages should have basic cleaning appointments twice a year, but it’s essential to discuss your child’s individual dental health needs with Dr. Bingham. Children with risk factors for developing gum disease may require more frequent cleanings, and for certain conditions like diabetes, as many as four cleanings per year might be necessary to combat related oral health difficulties.
