Lumino Smiles Dental

What happens during a child’s dental exam and clean?

Our team at Lumino Smiles Dental treats patients of all ages, including children and teenagers. We believe a healthy smile often starts in the early years, and we are delighted to help our young patients care for their teeth and gums. One way we care for children’s smiles is through routine dental exams and cleans in Pascoe Vale. 

What We Do for Kids' Exams and Cleans

We typically recommend seeing children for their first checkup when their first tooth erupts or before their first birthday. As children get older, we encourage parents to schedule exams and cleans for them every six months to prevent decay and gingivitis before they even begin. We also monitor the growth and development of their teeth, gums, bite, jaws, and oral tissues.  

During a child’s exam and clean, we do the following: 

  • Digital dental x-rays, if needed
  • Evaluate the risk of cavities and gingivitis 
  • Remove dental plaque and tartar 
  • Gently clean, floss, and polish teeth 
  • Apply fluoride treatment 
  • Apply sealants or fillings, if needed

Whatever your child may need, we are here to provide support and treatment to keep their smiles strong and sparkling. 

Family Dentistry in Fun and Positive Setting

We make early visits fun for children and teens, and we always strive to make our young patients feel safe and at ease—no matter what age. Our dental team has many years of experience helping young patients and their families keep their teeth strong, fresh, and bright. Whether you're one or 101, we can help you at Lumino Smiles Dental!

We invite you to arrange your or your child's dental checkup and clean by calling our clinic or contacting us online.
