What To Expect At Your Preventative Treatment Appointment
To help your child on the path to good oral health, a thorough cleaning will be provided. Plaque, tartar, and bacteria will be removed, and teeth will be polished and flossed. o The result is a beautiful smile they will be proud of!
If your child’s dentist suspects a problem with their teeth, we may recommend that they have x-rays taken. These images can show the dentist what’s going on below the gum line and in between their teeth.
After the teeth are cleaned, and x-rays have been taken, your child’s dentist will examine their teeth, gums, and mouth to check for oral health issues such as cavities, gum disease, and abnormalities of the tissues. X-rays are also examined to ensure that every potential problem has been detected.
During the exam, your dentist will discuss the state of your child’s oral health and any potential problems that they see. A treatment plan will also be outlined with specific recommendations for resolving the issues and treatments that are tailored to your lifestyle and budget.
