During these cleanings, we carefully remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains from your child's teeth using specialized tools and techniques. We create a positive and relaxed atmosphere to help children feel comfortable during the cleaning process.

In addition to cleaning, our dental professionals will also provide personalized oral hygiene instructions and demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques to your child. We believe in the importance of educating children about good oral hygiene practices from an early age, empowering them to take ownership of their dental health.

Regular kids cleanings are crucial for preventing tooth decay, gum disease, and other dental issues in children. By removing plaque and tartar, which can harbor harmful bacteria, we help protect your child's teeth and gums from cavities and infections. Routine cleanings also give us an opportunity to monitor your child's oral health and detect any signs of potential problems, allowing for early intervention and treatment if necessary.

We understand that children may have specific fears or anxieties about visiting the dentist.

What Procedures Are Included

During kids' cleaning appointments at Seattle Crown Hill Dental, our skilled pediatric dental professionals perform a range of procedures tailored to meet the unique needs of children. These procedures aim to promote good oral health, prevent dental issues, and create a positive dental experience for your child. Here are some common procedures included in kids' cleaning:

  • Thorough Teeth Cleaning

    Our dental hygienists gently and carefully clean your child's teeth using specialized tools to remove plaque, tartar, and surface stains.
  • Fluoride Treatment

    Fluoride is applied to the teeth to strengthen the enamel and protect against tooth decay. This quick and painless treatment helps keep your child's teeth strong and resistant to cavities.
  • Dental X-rays

    Depending on your child's age and dental needs, dental X-rays may be taken to get a comprehensive view of their oral health. X-rays can help identify any hidden dental problems or monitor the development of teeth and jaws.
  • Dental Exam

    Our pediatric dentists will perform a thorough examination of your child's teeth, gums, and oral tissues to check for any signs of cavities, gum disease, or other dental issues. This evaluation allows us to provide early intervention and treatment if necessary.
  • Oral Hygiene Education

    Our dental professionals will educate your child about proper oral hygiene practices, including brushing and flossing techniques. We will explain the importance of maintaining good oral health and provide personalized recommendations for your child's specific needs.
  • Sealants

    Dental sealants are thin, protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of molars to prevent cavities. They act as a barrier, sealing off the deep grooves and crevices where bacteria and food particles can accumulate.
  • Oral Cancer Screening

    As part of our comprehensive kids' cleaning, our dental team will conduct an oral cancer screening. While rare in children, early detection is crucial for timely intervention and treatment.
These procedures are tailored to the age and specific needs of your child, ensuring that their dental health is properly cared for during their cleaning appointments. At Seattle Crown Hill Dental, we are dedicated to providing gentle and comprehensive kids' cleaning services to help your child maintain a healthy and beautiful smile.
