Our gentle, yet thorough dental cleanings will get your child’s smile sparkling clean.
Goodbye, Plaque. Hello, Healthy Smile.
At Oak Tree Pediatric Dentistry, our kids’ dentists are all about prevention, and regular professional dental cleanings are an important part of your child’s preventative care. During a cleaning, we use special instruments to remove plaque and tartar (hardened plaque) that can’t be eliminated with a regular toothbrush and floss. This keeps your child’s teeth and gums healthy and helps them earn a spot in the cavity-free club. To learn more about our dental cleanings for kids in Greenville, read on or schedule a visit with us by calling (864) 232-3333.
What to Expect During Your Child’s Dental Cleaning
We don’t just jump right into a kid’s dental cleaning. Instead, we’ll show your child the instruments we’ll be using, demonstrate how they work and explain exactly what we’ll be doing at each step of the cleaning process. This helps reduce dental anxiety in kids by eliminating a fear of the unknown and making them an active participant in the visit.
Once your child is ready, we’ll use a special tool to gently remove plaque and tartar and then we’ll carefully floss their teeth. Next, we’ll brush and polish their teeth, so their enamel is clean, shiny and smooth. Depending on your child’s needs, we may wrap things up with a fluoride treatment.
