Why is it important for kids to see a dentist?
If you want to cherish your children's healthy smiles, it’s a good idea to start their dental care early. The American Dental Association and the American Academy of Pediatrics recommend every child get a dental checkup as soon as their first tooth comes in, or by age one.
With young children of her own, Dr. Linda understands that optimal oral health begins with good hygiene habits starting at an early age. Her bright and friendly chairside manner creates a comfortable environment for your children to develop a healthy relationship with their teeth.
Why is it important to get dental cleanings?
Regular dental cleanings play a critical role in your long-term oral health. Even with impeccable home care, a thorough teeth cleaning from a professional hygienist exceeds your best efforts at brushing and flossing.
During a teeth cleaning, a licensed dental hygienist uses special instruments to remove tough plaque and tartar from places you’d never be able to see or reach on your own. They then polish your teeth with a professional rotating brush and paste. Finally, they may apply a fluoride treatment to strengthen your teeth.
Teeth cleanings with a dental hygienist offer the following benefits:
- Fresher breath
- Brighter smile
- Cavity prevention
- Improved oral health
- Preventive care
What does a dentist check during a standard dental exam?
Depending on your individual oral health, Dr. Linda may recommend getting a teeth cleaning and dental exam once or twice per year.
During these routine exams, Dr. Linda checks all your teeth and oral tissues for common problems. She may take X-rays to further examine your teeth. These regular check-ups help Dr. Linda catch any issues early, before they turn into serious complications.
