Time for Your Child’s Spring Cleaning!

Spring is officially in the air! As you begin to clean out the cobwebs from the attic and deep clean your home, don’t forget that spring cleaning can apply to more than just bedrooms or closets. Spring is the perfect time to remind your child of the importance of taking care of their teeth with a spring cleaning or check-up!

What are Dental Cleanings?

Teeth cleanings are essential for your child’s oral health and overall well-being. That’s why it’s crucial to schedule one every 3-6 months to keep their teeth and gums in tip-top shape! Deep cleanings will remove tough plaque from the tooth surface that daily brushing and flossing can’t get. Cleanings also prevent future cavities, gingivitis, periodontal disease, and many other health issues.

Regular Cleanings are Preventative

Having consistent cleanings can help prevent more serious dental issues from developing. Cavities are a result of bacteria that damage the teeth. Regular cleanings remove bacteria and can go a long way in helping prevent tooth decay from happening. Deep dental cleanings are the only way to clean tartar that can’t be removed from brushing and flossing. At Texas Tiny Teeth, our compassionate team will help your child identify any problem areas and take the appropriate steps to be proactive in their oral care. We will also look at the position of their teeth to determine if braces or other corrective steps are needed to keep their teeth healthy.

Cleanings Will Give Your Child a Confident Smile

Our tiny patients who regularly have their teeth cleaned tend to have a brighter smile than those who don’t. Twice a year cleanings help remove stains, plaque, and tartar from the teeth, which can help give your child the confidence to smile big! Cleanings also help reduce the amount of bacteria in the mouth that can cause bad breath. While daily brushing and flossing help with this, a professional dental cleaning can be just what they need to smile with confidence.

Dental Cleanings are Good for Wellbeing

Did you know that a healthier cardiovascular system has been linked to good oral health? During routine cleanings, our expert dentists will do an oral screening to help catch and prevent diseases as early as possible. Dental cleaning appointments will spot gum disease, which develops due to plaque build-up on the tooth. If left untreated, gum disease can result in losing a tooth, or worse – heart disease. Bacteria in the mouth can also lead to the worsening of conditions such as asthma. Teeth and gums are an essential part of your child’s body, and their health can affect your child’s overall wellbeing. By making sure your child comes in for a spring cleaning, we can help reduce the likelihood of other serious health issues.

Cleanings Lead to Savings in the Long Run

Getting your child’s teeth cleaned twice a year is a great way to save money in the long run. Even with insurance, root canals and cavities can be expensive and time-consuming. Most dental insurance plans also cover cleanings, so the potential savings far outweigh the cost.

So, do yourself a favor, and don’t wait to “spring clean” both your teeth and your child’s teeth. Contact us to book your child’s next appointment today. Our Texas Tiny Teeth caring staff members are here for you, ready to give your child a healthy and happy smile!
