ADULT AND CHILD CLEANINGS IN PEORIA
It’s common for dentists to hear that people find it unnecessary to see their dentist every six months. However, adult and child cleanings are important simply because substances such as calculus can build up on a patient’s teeth. This substance can’t be removed without a professional’s help. Outside of that, a dentist or hygienist can ensure a patient is staying on track with their overall health.
PEORIA CHILD CLEANINGS
A child’s cleaning is very similar to an adult’s however, children must be seen by a pediatric dentist. A pediatric dentist has undergone the same schooling as a general dentist, however, they have an additional 2-3 years added on to their schooling/training. This is because children’s oral health has a few more details to cover than adult oral health.
A child’s cleaning usually consists of calculus removal, a flossing, a polishing, and if needed, a fluoride treatment. Of course, services vary depending on where you go so, be sure to ask your dental professional if you’re curious. A cleaning is usually the larger part of the 6-month appointment which also includes an oral exam. During the exam, dentists check for signs of gum disease, cavities, etc.
Adults are expected to visit a dentist every 6 months just like children are. They are expected to visit for the same reasons children are as well. Adults do not have to be seen by a specialized dental professional, they are seen by a general dentist. However, at a family dental practice, the attending dentist may cover the entire family since they have usually undergone pediatric training as well. Adult cleanings involve calculus and other substance removal, flossing, polishing, and if needed, a fluoride treatment.

PATIENTS RECOMMEND US
What a great dental office. I was just in there today and the people are amazing! My oldest daughter and I were scheduled to get our teeth cleaned at the same time, but I had to bring my year and a half old daughter with us, it was daddy’s day while mommy had to run errands. They helped out so much so I could get my teeth cleaned until my oldest was done and she could watch her. Great people!
This place is awesome. The atmosphere is dope. The staff is very nice and friendly. The place is so inviting. The exams and cleanings are VERY THOROUGH. They don’t just clean and send you own your way. They ask questions and get to know YOU. This was the best dental visit I’ve ever had.
Dr. Arthur’s one of the best dentists I have amazing dental visits and the quality of work he does is outstanding. I would highly recommend him to anyone in need of a dentist. Thank you so much for all the great work.
