As your child grows and you begin considering the health of their smile, you may have questions about dental cleanings and when it would be appropriate to start visiting our pediatric dentists. Our team at Romney Pediatric Dental is here to answer your questions and help you feel confident in taking care of your child’s teeth as they grow in. Dr. Walter Romney, Dr. Briant Romney, and Dr. Clark Romney follow the recommendations of the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry to have your child come to visit us by their first birthday and have their first dental cleaning by the age of three. The goal of these initial appointments is to help your child feel comfortable when sitting in a dentist’s chair and having their smile examined.
During a dental cleaning for children, our team will do all we can to make cleaning your child’s smile fun and engaging, as well as informative. We will gently clean each tooth, check it for signs of decay, and look for any developmental abnormalities. When problems emerge or are detected, treatment options will also be discussed. By reviewing your child’s dental history and performing a simple teeth cleaning in Salt Lake City, Utah, we can ensure your child receives the dental care they need and deserve.
If you would like to find out whether a dental cleaning would be appropriate for your child at this time, please give our dental office a call. We would be glad to help you schedule your first appointment and answer any questions you may have.
