Why Choose Cornerstone Dental For Children’s Checkups & Cleanings?

What Happens During Your Child’s Checkup & Cleaning?

Depending on whether your child feels comfortable with our team, we may attempt to conduct a thorough dental cleaning. If we sense that your little one is uneasy, we won’t do this in an effort to prevent your child from having a bad early experience with a family dentist near you. This can make them feel anxious or scared about returning and may create a negative relationship with their oral health. If your child is older, we’ll be sure to clear all plaque and tartar from their teeth and gumline.

Dental X-rays are a vital part of the checkup process for children because their mouths are still developing. These images allow us to see if their roots are healthy and make sure that everything is growing how it should be. We’ll also conduct a visual examination of their mouth to make sure that there are no lingering cavities and their gums are healthy. If we notice any issues, we’ll discuss them with you and walk you through any recommended treatments to help tackle the problem before it gets worse.

At-Home Dental Care Tips For Children

One of the most important ways to encourage your child to maintain great oral health is to help them develop an at-home hygiene routine. As long as they’re diligent about taking care of their teeth at home between each of their checkups and cleanings, they should be able to keep oral health problems from developing. Here are some ways you can encourage them to maintain a healthy smile:
