Why Your Child Needs Pediatric Dental Cleanings

In this post from Freedom Village Dental in Jacksonville, we review dental cleanings for kids, one of our pediatric dentistry services. Even if your child brushes and flosses twice a day, regular cleanings are essential to maintain good dental health, just like with mom and dad.

We encourage patients to practice preventative dentistry by:

  • Brushing—help your toddler brush their teeth then clean thoroughly afterwards
  • Flossing—start as soon as your toddler has two adjacent teeth
  • Healthy diet–limit sugary snacks and beverages
  • Regular pediatric dental cleanings with a fluoride treatment
  • Regular examinations

Dental cleanings increase the effectiveness of daily oral care by removing the plaque and tarter that can build up even with proper oral hygiene.

No matter the patient’s age, we want everyone who sits in one of our dental chairs to enjoy good dental health. Our services include children’s dentistry, and general and cosmetic dentistry. Call us to schedule an appointment today!
