Routine dental exams and cleanings are an essential part of maintaining a healthy smile, especially for children. Developing smiles are particularly prone to decay, so it is particularly important for kids to have regular visits to the dentist. We are pleased to offer gentle cleaning services and thorough dental exams at Orem Pediatric Dentistry.

We strive to make these routine cleanings and exams a fun, enjoyable experience for kids. Our team has special training in working and communicating with children, and excels at helping them feel comfortable and at-home.

During the appointment, our team will thoroughly and gently clean your child’s teeth, removing any built-up plaque or tartar. This enables our dentist to perform a comprehensive examination, looking for any signs of decay or potential developmental issues. In addition to this visual exam, we may use digital X-rays to look at the internal structure of your child’s mouth. Our team will also help teach your child better oral hygiene techniques.

One of the primary benefits of regular dental cleanings and exams is the prevention of common dental issues, including tooth decay. At Orem Pediatric Dentistry, we strongly believe in the power of prevention. In fact, 95% of our returning patients come back cavity-free!

Please contact us today if you have any questions or wish to schedule your child’s next teeth cleaning in Orem, Utah. Dr. R. Bruce Howell looks forward to helping your family smile bright!
