Reno Pediatric Dentistry: Routine Teeth Cleanings

A healthy smile makes for a happy kid! A routine teeth cleaning removes harmful plaque and tartar that can cause tooth decay and gum disease. It also allows your dentist to monitor your child’s dental development as they grow.

If you’re looking for child teeth cleaning services in Reno, Nevada, Absolute Dental has you covered. Our pediatric dentistry specialists make dental care quick, easy, and fun for your kids.

Why Is Child Routine Dentistry Important?

Keeping track of your child’s dental health will help build strong oral hygiene habits and spot issues earlier when they’re easier to treat. Routine teeth cleanings are a big part of preventative care.

What If My Child Is Nervous About The Dentist?

It’s normal for kids to feel a little anxious about visiting the dentist. However, a skilled pediatric dentist in Reno will know what techniques to use to put your child at ease. At Absolute Dental, our friendly team uses a gentle approach and communicates with your child every step of the way.

There are also things you can do to help prepare your kids for a dental cleaning:

  • Show your kids books or videos about the dentist
  • Walk them through what to expect
  • Be positive and excited about their dental visit
  • Use toys to show them what happens during a cleaning
  • Let your child know they can bring their favorite toy or blanket
  • Schedule the appointment at a time when your child is usually calm and rested

Does My Child Need A Pediatric Dentist?

While a general dentist may also offer services for kids, it’s often beneficial to find a children’s dentist. A pediatric dentist has the training and experience to work with children and help them develop a positive connection with dental care.

What Happens During A Child Teeth Cleaning?

A pediatric teeth cleaning is essential to your child’s dental health and development. Here’s what you can expect during the procedure:

Dental X-Rays

Once your child is comfortable, we’ll ask them to bite down on a special tray. They will need to hold it there for a few seconds while the dental assistant takes the X-ray. This process is repeated a few times to get every section of your child’s mouth.


A dental hygienist will then use dental instruments called scalers to remove plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth and below the gum line. During this part of the cleaning, your child may hear a tapping or scraping sound but will not experience any pain.


After the plaque is removed, the hygienist will use a special toothbrush and gritty toothpaste to polish and brighten your child’s smile. This step involves an electric whirring sound as the soft rubber tip rotates around each tooth.

Floss and Rinse

The hygienist’s last step is flossing between the teeth to remove any remaining toothpaste or debris. The teeth are then rinsed off and ready for the dentist’s inspection.

Full Dental Exam

A pediatric dentist will review the X-rays and examine your child’s mouth for any issues. They may also provide tips and recommendations on how to improve your child’s oral health and hygiene. This is the perfect time to ask questions or voice concerns.

Children's Teeth Cleaning FAQs

Most dental insurance will cover pediatric preventive care. However, you can also pay cash or find special offers for affordable pediatric dentistry services. Contact Absolute Dental to hear about our limited-time offers, Smile Saver membership discounts, and flexible payment options!

Regular teeth cleanings remove harmful bacteria and buildup from your child’s mouth, which lowers the risk of tooth decay, cavities, and gum disease. You also introduce your kids to routine dental care and build healthy hygiene habits they will carry into adulthood.

The American Dental Association (ADA) recommends scheduling your child’s first dental visit after their baby teeth begin to grow. However, their first teeth cleaning should take place before a child’s first birthday.
