Regular, thorough twice-annual dental cleanings are essential for your child's dental health. Our NYC pediatric dentist uses special instruments and procedures to assure sparkling-clean teeth!
Tartar deposits between the teeth are removed with tools that also smooth the tooth surfaces and a paste is placed on the teeth with a hand tool to polish the child's teeth. Then, a flavored fluoride is applied to the teeth.
Most children enjoy a trip to the dentist when a cleaning is involved. Regular daily flossing minimizes the need for tartar removal, reduces discomfort and results in a shorter visit-something all kids like!
Be sure to schedule your child's dental check-ups every six months unless Dr. Dikansky instructs otherwise.
