Practicing good oral hygiene means maintaining your child’s smile by visiting our office regularly and taking care of those teeth and gums between checkups. Our practice wants to make sure your son or daughter gets the most out of office visits, and that his or her teeth stay healthy for life!
We’ll work with you to provide complete dental care, and show you how to maintain your child’s smile at home with the right dental products for you and your family.
Dental Cleanings and Regular Checkups
Regular dental checkups are an important part of maintaining good oral health. During regular checkups, Dr. Raziee or a hygienist will:
- Check for any problems that may not be seen or felt
- Look for cavities or other signs of tooth decay
- Inspect the teeth and gums for gingivitis and signs of periodontal disease or any other pathology
- Provide a thorough teeth cleaning, rinse, and polish
Visiting our office at least every six months gives you and your child the chance to ask Dr. Leila any questions you may have about your child’s oral health. Checkups are also a great way to find out about new treatments that may benefit your child’s smile.
Choosing the Right Toothpaste and Toothbrush
From toothpaste and mouthwash to toothbrushes and dental floss, it’s vital to choose the right products. Dr. Leila can help by recommending certain dental products for use at home.
