As a parent or caregiver, it is up to you to make sure that your child’s teeth are brushed at least twice a day and flossed once a day. However, bringing your child in for regular appointments with our pediatric dentist, Dr. J. Cam West, is also a big part of taking care of their smile. If you are looking for a dentist for your child, or it is just time for their routine visit, call Desert Sun Pediatric Dentistry at 480-275-5099 today to plan your child’s visit.
Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic, yet important, preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time your child visits our pediatric dental practice for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help their smile stay healthy. During their cleaning and exam, our dental team will:
- Clean your child’s teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which can lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
- Floss and polish your child’s teeth for a healthy, bright smile
- Examine your child’s smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions or diseases
We may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your child’s smile and make certain that they receive the dental care they need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.
We recommend that your child visit us every six months for a routine dental cleaning and exam in Mesa, Arizona. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and we also encourage you to contact us if your child suffers from a dental emergency, pain or injury. To schedule your child’s next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your child’s smile!
