At the dental practice of Dr. Bill Cryderman, we know how important routine dental cleanings are to your child’s health. We encourage you to bring your child in for a checkup and cleaning every six months. This helps us to rule out any undiagnosed oral conditions your child may have, such as a painful tooth or other chronic dental problem. Why is this important? Because children with chronic dental pain may not always tell their parents that something is wrong, often because they don’t know what is happening to them.
Untreated dental conditions can lead to difficulty eating, speaking and concentrating, and may result in your child missing school. Sometimes the only sign that your child is suffering might be that your child may appear anxious, depressed or tired. To determine how often your child should be seen, Dr. Bill Cryderman and our team will assess the following:
— Your child’s eating habits.
— How well your child’s teeth are maintained.
— Any past treatment your child has received and what their current needs are.
— Any factors that may indicate susceptibility to oral diseases.
Your child’s cleaning will involve our dental hygienist cleaning the surfaces of the teeth to remove any plaque or calculus. This can prevent the development of gum disease and periodontal disease. The cleaning also involves our skilled hygienist flossing, rinsing, washing, and polishing your child’s teeth. Not only will this deeply clean the hard-to-reach crevices in your child’s mouth, but it will also lower the risk of infection.
Regular professional dental checkups and exams will help keep your child’s smile healthy and confident as they grow. Please call our team in Calgary, Alberta at 403.229.0510 to schedule your child’s next dental checkup and cleaning. Dr. Bill Cryderman and our team are happy to keep your child smiling!
