There are plenty of benefits to visiting your dentist on a regular basis. Ideally, you should visit your dentist about twice a year or roughly once every six months or so. During these vital dental visits you should also have your teeth professionally cleaned so as to help improve and maintain your overall dental health. This is important for adults as well as children which is why pediatric dental cleanings are so important. Our Greenlawn dentist Roger Curtiss, DDS can provide your children with the comprehensive dental care that they need in order to grow up with good overall dental health.
Kids are known to have baby teeth that come loose at some point during childhood and fall out at some point. These baby teeth or primary teeth make way for the permanent secondary teeth that will replace them. But even though baby teeth do not last forever it is still important to take care of them. These teeth act as important placeholders for the ones that will one day replace them. Healthy baby teeth will help make way for healthy secondary teeth. If baby teeth suffer from rot and decay, the teeth that will one day replace them will suffer as well. Baby teeth also tend to come in much the same way that their permanent counterparts will later on so sometimes interceptive orthodontics can be implemented. In any case, it is always wise to schedule pediatric dental cleanings every six months or so along with other members of your family. Dental cleanings for kids here with our Greenlawn dentist Roger Curtiss, DDS can help to improve and maintain their oral health. It can also provide Dr. Curtiss with the opportunity to perform any necessary dental procedures such as dental fillings or tooth extractions and he can emphasize just how important dental care is to kids. Since kids are only just learning how to take care of themselves it is important that they build healthy oral hygiene habits early on so that they carry over into adolescence as well as well into adulthood.

Dr. Curtiss will attend to your child’s dental needs in order to completely ensure that their dental health remains in check as they grow older and develop into teens with healthy sets of permanent teeth and gums.
