Your child’s teeth aren’t just there to give your child an adorable smile. Baby teeth aid in chewing, speaking, and laying a healthy foundation for permanent teeth. Just as it is for adults, taking care of your child’s teeth is an ongoing job involving daily at-home dental hygiene and bi-annual dental appointments.
At Dentistry on Parkdale, Dr. Karen Ho loves all her patients, but she pays special attention to providing dental care for children. She is gentle, friendly, and fun. Children look forward to returning to our dental clinic because of the friendly atmosphere and our child-friendly team. So, if you want regular dental cleanings for your child in Hamilton, Ontario, our dental office is the ideal choice for you.
Your children may not be experts at brushing and flossing their teeth. As such, they may not reach all the nooks and crannies of their mouths, which may encourage plaque to build up. When plaque isn’t removed, it hardens into tartar, which is terrible news for the mouth.
Dr. Ho recommends professional dental cleanings for children to regularly remove plaque, tartar, and calculus. During dental cleanings, we scrape away calculus buildup below and above your child’s gum line. We then floss and polish your child’s teeth for a stunning smile. Depending on your child’s risk of cavities, we may also recommend sealants and fluoride treatment.
We use gentle and light touch techniques to clean your child’s teeth. We take all the necessary steps to ensure your child remains comfortable throughout the treatment.
