Dental Cleaning and Exam

Children’s Dental Cleaning & Exams

Children are not just small adults. Just as you would entrust your child’s medical care to a pediatrician, you will want to entrust their teeth cleanings, fillings, and other dental care to a pediatric dentist. This highly focused dental specialist is required to complete two additional years of training in pediatric dentistry after completing dental school. Seeing a pediatric dentist with refined expertise is important because the type of dental care a child needs, and the best way to deliver that care, can vary widely from age to age and from child to child.

You can feel confident in the board-certified pediatric dentist at Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry in Succasunna, New Jersey. In addition to providing comprehensive and age-appropriate dental care to our young patients, our goal is to help them grow into adults who prioritize and value their oral health and have an excellent oral hygiene routine in place. All of that begins with preventive dental care, including periodic dental cleanings and checkups.

What to Expect

Our pediatric dentist will begin by making your child feel comfortable and explaining the dental cleaning procedure in kid-friendly terms. Using a special tooth scraper, the dentist will then gently remove plaque from your child’s teeth, which will help eliminate bacteria and keep the teeth and surrounding gums healthy. Next, the dentist will thoroughly brush and floss your child’s teeth, then visually inspect them.

We suggest that you bring your child in for a professional dental cleaning and exam at least once every six months. To schedule your child’s free smile assessment at our state-of-the-art office in Succasunna, NJ, contact Roxbury Orthodontics & Pediatric Dentistry at 862.305.4930 or click here.
