Does my child really need regular cleanings?

Just like regular check-ups with the pediatrician, your child needs regular cleanings with the dentist as a part of maintaining her overall health. Baby teeth are important! They are an integral part of your child’s chewing and speaking skills. Not only that, they are surrounded by the gums that will one day hold permanent teeth. Regular dental visits will help keep your child’s teeth and gums healthy and will secure the proper oral hygiene habits needed to maintain a beautiful smile.

Good habits start young
Dental hygiene is essential for a bright smile, pleasant breath, and good oral health. Regular dental visits will provide your child with the knowledge of proper brushing and flossing techniques that will last her a lifetime. Starting young means that these skills will become habits and be a part of your child’s overall healthy lifestyle! Dr. Terrie X. Tran DDS of All Smiles By Design is a pediatric dentistry specialist. She and her staff are dedicated to treating patients gently and kindly to ensure a positive experience. With nothing to fear, your child will be happy to go in for regular cleanings.

Prevent problems while they are still small
Issues like thumb sucking or poor nutrition start as minor problems, but can eventually become larger complications for your child’s oral development. Dr. Tran will work with you and your child to correct these issues and avoid further problems. Consistent dental visits allow the dentist to watch for such problems and address them early, thereby avoiding unnecessary pain and expense later on.

Importance of regular cleanings
You can ensure a bright, healthy smile for your child by coming in for regular dental checkups and cleanings. At each appointment, Dr. Tran will conduct a gentle yet thorough examination to verify that your child’s teeth and gums are developing well.
