Pediatric Dental Cleanings & Exams

Our dentist can give you some great tips on helping your child learn to brush and floss properly. But even if your child has a refrigerator full of gold stars for their home hygiene, there is no substitute for a visit to A Kids Dentist for a pediatric dental cleaning and exam in Huntington Beach, California. Call 714-379-7755 to plan your child’s appointment with Dr. Shalini Shah. If this is your child’s first trip to our office, be sure to ask about our Getting-to-Know-You Exam.

Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most basic but important preventive treatments we provide at our office. Each time your child visits us for a checkup, we will provide a professional teeth cleaning and dental exam to help their smile stay healthy. During your child’s cleaning and exam, our dental team will:

  • Clean their teeth by removing any plaque or tartar (also called dental calculus), which could otherwise lead to tooth decay and periodontal disease
  • Floss and polish their teeth for a healthy, bright smile
  • Examine their smile for signs of any damaging dental conditions

We may utilize dental X-rays to further evaluate your child’s smile and make certain that they receive the dental care they need. Regular dental cleanings and exams are essential in maintaining good oral health, preventing cavities and gum disease, and making sure that any damaging conditions are treated as early as possible.

We recommend bringing your child in for a visit every six months to receive a routine dental cleaning and exam. We may suggest more frequent visits if needed, and encourage you to contact us if your child suffers from a dental emergency, pain or injury. To schedule your child’s next appointment, we invite you to contact us today. We look forward to caring for your child’s smile!
