The Importance of Regular Dental Exams and Cleanings
Establishing a routine of regular dental exams and cleanings is crucial for your child’s overall health and well-being. These visits not only help prevent cavities and gum disease but also allow our pediatric dental team to monitor your child’s oral development, detect potential issues early, and provide guidance on proper oral hygiene habits. By instilling the value of dental care from a young age, we aim to create a foundation for a lifetime of healthy smiles.
At Little Smiles of Franklin, we understand that visiting the dentist can be a bit intimidating for children. Our team is trained to make your child feel at ease while providing comprehensive dental care. During a typical dental exam, our pediatric dentist will:
Review your child’s medical and dental history
Perform a thorough oral examination, checking for cavities, gum disease, and any developmental concerns
Assess your child’s bite and jaw alignment
Take dental X-rays, if necessary, to evaluate the health of teeth and surrounding structures
Discuss any findings and recommend appropriate treatments or preventative measures
Provide guidance on maintaining good oral hygiene habits at home
We believe that education is key to empowering children to take charge of their dental health. Our friendly and knowledgeable team will take the time to answer any questions and address any concerns you or your child may have.
A Gentle and Thorough Cleaning
Regular dental cleanings are essential for keeping your child’s teeth and gums healthy. Our skilled dental hygienists at Little Smiles of Franklin are specially trained in pediatric dentistry and will gently clean your child’s teeth to remove plaque and tartar. This process helps prevent cavities, gum disease, and bad breath, and leaves your child’s teeth feeling fresh and clean.
