Dental Cleanings & Exams

Dental cleanings and exams are two of the most important treatments provided at Little Smiles Pediatric Dentistry. By bringing your child to visit our pediatric dentists and team regularly, you can help them avoid developing cavities and other problems and ensure that any issues that do develop are diagnosed and treated as quickly as possible. Call us today at 208-777-9331 to learn more about dental cleanings and exams, and make your child’s appointment.

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 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!
