Why Professional Teeth Cleanings Are Important for Children

Children's Dentistry | Phinney Ridge Dental

At Phinney Ridge Dental, our dentist customizes your child’s general and preventive dentistry to meet his or her needs, but dental cleanings are always important no matter the child. Without professional teeth cleanings in Seattle, WA your child may be more prone to cavities and poor dental health in the future.

Brushing and flossing alone will not remove the bacteria or tartar that leads to tooth decay or dental infections, but our hygienist, who is wonderful with children and always makes them feel at ease, can clear away even the most stubborn bacteria by utilizing the latest technologies here in our Seattle, WA dental office.

We can also apply sealants and fluoride rinses to strengthen your child’s teeth and help prevent cavities. 

What Professional Teeth Cleaning Entails

In our dental office, we will clean and polish your child’s teeth and provide you with the best tips and techniques to use at home to help your child maintain the healthiest smile possible. We also talk to kids and educate them about their oral health. We find that when kids take an active role in their dental care, it often promotes better brushing and flossing habits.

A good brushing and flossing routine at home—at least two times per day—avoiding sweets, and regular dental exams and cleanings are the best course to help your child maintain his or her smile for life.

At Phinney Ridge Dental, it is our goal to provide the best dentistry for your child and continue that service into adulthood.
