Your child may experience their first teeth cleaning during their first visit to the pediatric dentist. The dentist will examine their mouth to see any imperfections to see how he can help fix the issue and then help the child maintain their healthy smile. A good rule to remember is when their baby teeth fully come out, it is a sign that your child should be ready to receive their first teeth cleaning.
It is vital that your dentist checks to see if your child’s adult teeth will be growing in properly through thorough examination of your child’s jaw, gums, bite, and teeth. If your dentist finds a sign of plaque being built up on their teeth, he or she will recommend a cleaning.
