Dental Cleanings & Exams FAQs

When should my child first come to the dentist?

It’s recommended that your child’s first dental visit occur by their first birthday or within six months after their first tooth appears. Early visits help in monitoring development, addressing any concerns promptly, and establishing a comfortable relationship with dental care from the start.

How often should my child get a dental cleaning?

Children should typically receive a dental cleaning and exam every six months. This frequency can ensure any developing issues are caught and addressed promptly.

What can I expect during my child’s dental cleaning?

Our Charlottesville dental cleaning services involve removing plaque and tartar, polishing teeth, and assessing oral health. It’s a comfortable, non-invasive process conducted by our skilled, child-friendly staff.

Can dental cleanings help prevent future dental issues?

Absolutely. Regular cleanings remove build-up that can lead to cavities and gum disease, and exams can detect potential issues early, often making treatment simpler and less invasive.
