At Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry in Houston, TX, we believe prevention is an essential part of achieving and maintaining optimal oral health. For this reason, we recommend that all of our patients receive comprehensive exams and teeth cleanings at least twice a year. Did you know that the enamel of “baby teeth” is actually thinner than our permanent teeth? This means that our children are more at risk for dental decay in the earlier stages of life. Luckily our dental exams and teeth cleanings in Houston can help prevent decay from ever starting!
During your child’s comprehensive oral examination at Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry, they will receive a thorough examination by our pediatric dentist, looking at the teeth, gums, tongue and even jaw. If you or your child has any questions we’d also be happy to answer them at this time. We will also provide information about proper at home dental care and talk to your child about the importance of good oral hygiene.
Although at home dental care is an essential part of achieving a healthy smile, we often miss certain areas in our mouths due to how are teeth are positioned. Children are also still learning to perfect their dental care techniques. During their routine teeth cleaning, any bacteria overgrowth, plaque buildup and stains your child misses will be removed. The teeth will also be polished so that they look bright and healthy.
When is the last time your child had a comprehensive dental exam and teeth cleaning? If it has been longer than 6 months, contact Molar Bear Pediatric Dentistry in Houston, TX today to schedule your appointment. We’d be happy to provide a routine oral examination and dental cleaning.
