Cleanings & Exams
Comprehensive Care for Your Child's Oral Health
Regular teeth cleanings and exams are essential for good oral health — they can help prevent cavities and allow us to detect other problems. We strive to offer top-quality teeth cleaning and exams in Gainesville, FL, for our young patients in a welcoming, fun, and family-centered environment.
Benefits of Teeth Cleanings & Exams
Taking your child for routine checkups and cleanings has numerous benefits. Not only will this build a foundation of trust with our dentist and keep your child’s teeth bright and clean but it also allows us to check for signs of cavities and early developmental problems in the teeth and jaw. The sooner we address these issues, the better we can maintain your child’s dental health.
During their checkup, we will check for tooth decay, take x-rays, check the development of their teeth, jaw, and airways, perform an oral cancer screening, and provide fluoride treatment and dental sealants if needed. Dental sealants are a simple, painless solution to prevent cavities typically recommend for young children and teens, whose inexperience with dental hygiene can make them more cavity-prone during their younger years.
Education & Adventure
For most adults, trips to the dentist are fairly routine. You have your teeth cleaned and examined, and then you go about the rest of your day. For parents and children, however, there is nothing routine about these early trips to our office. Your time with us is as much about exploration and education as it is about preventive cleaning.
When you visit our office for your child’s checkup, we guide both you and your child on how to care for your child’s teeth at home. We also make sure you and your child have plenty of time to have all your questions answered. While we do this, we let your child explore our office at their own pace. We want them to discover how much fun our dental family can be.
We also make sure to listen to the most important member of our team — you. As a parent, you know your child’s needs and limits far better than anyone else. At our parent-friendly office, you’re welcome to join us in the treatment area. That way, you can have peace of mind and know that your child is receiving the best care possible. We value parent input and want to listen to you and your concerns.
