Dental Exams & Cleanings

Preventive measures of care become critical for maintaining great oral health once your child's teeth begins to emerge. Dental professionals generally recommend scheduling routine exams and cleanings twice a year for optimal results. By coupling these visits with a solid routine of proper brushing, rinsing, and flossing your child will have a foundation of effective oral health.
Dr. Geri-Lynn Waldman encourage families throughout Middletown, Mechanicstown, and Scotchtown, New York to bring their children to our pediatric dental practice for a cleaning and exam every six months to ensure their smile remains aesthetically pleasing and free of decay!

Dental Exams Prevent Disease
When your child visits our pediatric office for your exam, Dr. Geri-Lynn Waldman and our hygienists will check for several things to ensure proper health. Diagnostic x-rays help our dental professionals detect complications such as decay, misalignment, and bone loss.
Ensuring that your child's gums are healthy and free of infection is another important part of our examinations. We will evaluate and treat any existence of gingivitis before it potentially leads to more advanced periodontal issues.
Gentle Cleanings in Middletown
During your child's cleaning appointment, the hygienist and Dr. Waldman will use their state-of-the-art equipment to remove plaque and tartar that regular brushing and flossing couldn’t eliminate. The importance of removing plaque and tartar is important for fighting decay as well as to remove any bacteria that could cause inflammation of the gums. Once your child's exam and cleaning are complete, you’ll leave with a complete understanding of any recommended tips to improve your child's oral health and if any follow-up visits for further dental work is required.
