The Importance of Dental Cleanings for Children
According to the Centers For Disease Control and Prevention, tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children in the US. Preventative measures such as regular dental exams and cleanings are the best defense for cavities and other oral health-related issues. Dental cleanings are integral to healthy teeth and gums.
Furthermore, introducing your child to dentistry at an early age can help them develop healthy attitudes toward oral health that can last a lifetime. The healthy smile that results from dental cleanings can also provide children with a sense of confidence and assurance. Consequently, your child’s dental visits are an investment in their overall health and well-being.
