About Dental Cleanings
Even if your children have a perfect oral hygiene routine at home, it can still be beneficial for them to get a professional dental cleaning at First Class Pediatric Dentistry twice each year. A cleaning is part of your child's preventative exam. Using state-of-the-art equipment, a biannual professional dental cleaning treats plaque and tartar that has built up and then polishes the enamel for a brighter, healthier smile. During your child's treatment, we will provide tips on better home oral care and discover any areas that need more care. A dental cleaning will give board-certified pediatric dentist Dr. Adesegun Tewogbade a chance to check for any issues in the mouth that might require care. Getting a professional dental cleaning is a crucial step in maintaining your child's oral health so schedule appointments for your family at our Snellville, GA location.
Dental Cleaning Reviews
"My little one was very nervous to have her teeth cleaned. She’s 3 and she started her cleaning crying but by the end of the appointment, she was happy and calm. The team really worked together to make her feel more comfortable and even offered her an Elsa sticker (which made all the difference). The facility is clean and everyone’s very nice! This was a fantastic experience! Great place for moms with toddlers."- C.C. / Google / Jan 01, 2020
"I give five stars to 1st Class Pediatric Dentistry for making my 2yr old daughter's first time at the dentist office a pleasant experience. She was a little apprehensive at first and started crying while I held her in my arms for the regular cleaning. In the end, those sweet little tears turned into a beautiful smile when Dr. T gave my daughter a yellow rubber ducky for having no cavities....another priceless mom moment :). Thanks again!!!"- H.H. / Google / Nov 01, 2019
"Great team. I took my son for a Dental cleaning. The staff was extremely courteous & professional. This location was opened a week ago. Building smells Spankin New. I hope they maintain the quality & service. Dr.T is family friendly & understanding. Glad to see a paediatric dentistry opened in our neighborhood. They are directly across from Walmart and the location is also great."- A.G. / Google / Sep 01, 2019
"From the moment I walked in the door, I knew we had found the right dentist location. The greetings from the staff was professional, genuine and sincere. From Sue-Ann, Ms. Vonda, Dr. T, and Ms. Cameka. We both felt the warming welcome. As we approached the back I continued to see the concern and interaction with patients and their children. Every one was polite and extremely knowledgeable. Ms. Vonda engaged with my son during the entire cleaning. After she was done she explained the next process in detailed and wished us both a great weekend. The famous Dr. T (in the eyes of his patients) was awesome! Ms. Cameka, sealed the deal!!! Literally and figuratively! My son walked out with clean protected teeth and with a new set of friends! Great place for your child! I would recommend this location"- T.S. / Google / Mar 28, 2019
Candidates for Dental Cleaning
The ADA (American Dental Association) recommends scheduling a professional cleaning two times per year. Babies should have their first visit to the dentist before they turn one and following that, Dr. T will help you decide when your child is old enough for their next dental appointment. A professional cleaning can prevent cavities because built-up plaque, the main cause of tooth decay, is removed. A professional cleaning will also remove stains and tartar on your child's teeth. To give your children a brighter smile, improve their overall health, and avoid spending money on painful and expensive treatments later on, schedule their professional cleaning at First Class Pediatric Dentistry.
Our Teeth Cleaning Technique
The dental cleaning will start by addressing the plaque and tartar deposits on the teeth, which can be challenging to treat with daily brushing and flossing alone. Special instruments are used to scale buildup without harming the tooth. First, a device with ultrasonic technology addresses large areas of tartar and plaque with a lubricating mist and high-speed vibrations. Next, handheld tools, such as a curette or scaler, will remove smaller pieces. Every tooth needs to be scaled to get all the tartar and plaque. After we clean your child's teeth, the enamel will be carefully polished to remove stains and strengthen the teeth. If needed or requested, a professional fluoride treatment may be done following the cleaning.
Following Up after your Child's Cleaning
Dr. T may suggest cleanings more often for some patients with oral health concerns or braces. Throughout the appointment, Dr. T or a member of his team will help your child come up with a routine for good oral health at home by recommending dental products and demonstrating techniques that can address concerns specific to your child. These can benefit your child's teeth and overall health so make sure to schedule regular dental appointments at First Class Pediatric Dentistry.
