Your Child Will Feel Comfortable at Their Appointment

One of the reasons our young patients enjoy their regular checkups so much is that they’re so comfortable. We use an anesthetic gel on the gums that ensures your child won’t feel any discomfort during an exam and cleaning. If necessary, we also offer three levels of sedation to help patients relax. We want to make sure your child’s visit goes as smoothly as possible!

During your child’s cleaning and exam, we’ll do several things:

  • We may take a set of X-rays for an up-close look at the teeth roots, bones, and nerves.
  • The hygienist will check for signs of oral cancer, cavities, and gum disease.
  • Your child will receive a thorough teeth cleaning and polishing, including areas you might miss at home with regular brushing and flossing.
  • The dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations for additional treatments needed.

Recommendations could include tooth fillings, fluoride treatments, tooth sealants, gum disease treatment, chronic dry mouth treatment, or chronic halitosis (bad breath) treatment. As Hawthorne’s only laser dentist, we can use our laser for services such as treating gum infection or filling cavities. This gives your child pain-free treatment and minimal healing time.

In addition, as parents, you’ll appreciate our military-grade water filtration system and our hospital-grade HEPA air treatment system. Your child’s health and comfort are our top concerns while you visit us.

Dental cleanings and exams in Hawthorne will keep your family smiling brightly. Call Hawthorne Smile Spa today at 310-982-4895 to schedule an appointment or schedule online.

Common Questions About Dental Cleanings & Exams

How long does a dental exam and cleaning take?

For most of our patients, a dental exam and cleaning will take about an hour. We’ll begin by asking you or your child about any problems and possibly taking a set of X-rays. The dental hygienist will then look over your child’s mouth and perform a thorough teeth cleaning. Finally, the dentist will perform a complete dental exam and make any recommendations needed for a healthy smile.

How often should my child get a dental cleaning and exam?

In general, we recommend that a patient come in every six months for a dental exam and cleaning. Routine checkups allow us the chance to keep an eye on your child’s oral health and provide early treatment for any problems we spot. Kids may need to visit us more often if they’re susceptible to gum disease.
