We Protect Bright, Growing Smiles with Checkups & Cleanings
Checkups and cleanings are a very important part of dentistry, and we look forward to giving your child an experience that exceeds their expectations and leaves them excited for their next appointment! Our doctors, staff members, and KidZaam Kommandos will help them learn about the importance of keeping teeth strong and healthy, and parents can rest assured that we’ll address any pesky problems that pop up as soon as possible. KidZaam Dentistry has office locations in Cottonwood, Prescott, and Prescott Valley, AZ – contact us today to schedule a visit!
What Happens During A Checkup?
During checkups, our goal is simple – we want to fully understand your child’s unique dental needs and help them make their smile the very best it can be! That’s why we’ll carefully check every aspect of their smile, including:
- Each “baby” and permanent tooth that’s emerged
- Their gum tissue
- Their bite and jaw joints
- Any current fillings, crowns, or other restorative work
Our doctors will be looking for any signs of problems with the help of our safe, all-digital X-rays, as well as developmental concerns that could lead to more involved treatment down the road if they’re not stopped right away. By seeing our young patients every six months on average (or twice each year), we can relieve pain, treat injuries, and catch those pesky Cavity Goons right away! Better yet, your child can look forward to playing around in our waiting room, watching their favorite Disney movies, and much, much more before and after their checkup. Getting kids interested in dentistry has never been easier!
Are Cleanings Really That Important?
Yes! Just like checkups, cleanings at KidZaam Dentistry are necessary in the fight against D.K. alongside the KidZaam Kommandos. Over time, bacteria-filled plaque and tartar are forming in smiles of all shapes and sizes, and while brushing and flossing can get rid of a lot of it, it’s more than likely that some stays behind to wreak havoc on precious teeth and gums. During your child’s hygiene appointment, our agents will clear away these dastardly goons, provide fun instruction for how to keep teeth decay-free at home, and leave their smile squeaky clean! By building good habits from an early age, we hope to help them enjoy a strong foundation for lifelong oral health.
