Isn’t brushing at home enough for a child?
Regular dental cleanings are exceptionally important for children. Childhood is often a cavity-prone time, and regular cleanings will not only work to prevent cavities, but will also identify cavities when they do happen so they can be properly dealt with. Though daily brushing and flossing removes plaque from teeth, consistent dental cleanings provide a deeper clean that removes hard, calcified deposits like tartar. Dental cleanings should occur every six months.
