Regular brushing is important but it is not enough to keep teeth clean. Toothbrush cannot reach each and every nook and corner of mouth and many angles of tooth remain uncleaned even after thorough brushing. Even daily flossing does not remove all the debris from the teeth. It’s important to come in for regular cleanings so that your child gets the thorough clean necessary to prevent plaque buildup and cavities.
Children need one dental cleaning every six months, beginning at age two. However the first visit should be around the first birthday. If your child becomes accustomed to dental checkups from an early age it is less likely for him to experience fear and anxiety of dental treatment.
Procedure for Dental Cleaning
The dentist will clean and polish your teeth, using tiny dental tools like a tooth scraper, ultrasonic tip, mirror, and special toothbrush. The tooth scraper removes plaque from your teeth. Plaque is a debris layer that coats your teeth and contains bacteria and gradually eats up the teeth causing decay.
This is followed by brushing and flossing. The dentist will brush your teeth with a special toothbrush and toothpaste, then dentist will floss your teeth and show you the proper way to brush and floss your teeth at home. Flossing involves using a piece of waxy string called dental floss to get in between your teeth and remove food particles that your brush can’t reach.
