The worst thing that could possibly happen during the course of the school year is a dental problem caused by cavities or other ailments. Keeping their oral health in tip-top shape is very important because it’s connected to their overall health. Any dental problems can grow into bigger ones if they don’t get the treatment they need. Oftentimes, our team can recognize problems before they become bigger ones. A general exam can map out what all needs to be done to ensure their chompers are ready for the school year

What all happens during a children’s dental exam? Our team will thoroughly inspect their mouth for any signs of tooth decay. From there, our registered dental hygienist will gently clean their teeth removing plaque, tartar and other bacteria from their smile. If they need a refresher on proper brushing and flossing techniques, we can demonstrate. It’s important to ask questions so you can fully understand why we perform certain procedures during a general exam. The health of your child’s teeth is not only important to you, it’s doubly important to us. Young mouths need always have a fighting chance against disease when they come to our office.
