Dental Hygiene

At Pediatric Dental Associates, we know that introducing your children to proper dental hygiene at an early age is important for ongoing oral health.

What do you recommend for my child to take care of his or her teeth at home?

Along with regular maintenance of brushing and flossing your teeth, our pediatric dentists recommend that children visit a dental hygienist once every six months to ensure teeth and gums are healthy.

Our friendly staff will walk you and your child through their first hygiene appointment and provide any advice about how you can play a role in the healthy maintenance of your child's teeth.

What will happen at my child's dental cleaning?

During your child's first appointment, they may undergo hygiene treatment. Dental cleaning can involve:

  • dental care education
  • removing plaque from teeth
  • removing tartar
  • polishing paste

Visit our preventative education page to learn more about proper brushing and flossing.
