If this is your child’s first appointment with us, one of our pediatric dentists at Children’s Dental Care will take a look in their mouth to make sure there are no oral health issues that need immediate attention.
If everything looks good, your child will be turned over to a dental hygienist who will begin the teeth cleaning.
During your child’s oral exam, our dentist will check to make sure the entire mouth is healthy.
Benefits of Oral Examinations
Not only are your child’s teeth examined for obvious signs of tooth decay, but our pediatric dentists will also check for signs of gum disease, oral cancer, and misaligned teeth and jaws. Dental x-rays will be taken to make sure there are no cavities hiding in between teeth or along the gum line. If a cavity or other oral health issue is revealed by our x-rays, our dentist will talk to you about treatment and advise you of your child’s options.
Schedule a dental checkup for your child every six months!
Dental exams are a good preventative measure because they help our dentist catch small oral health issues before they grow into bigger problems. Make sure you schedule a dental checkup for your child every six months.
Our pediatric dentist at Children’s Dental Care are dedicated to helping your child maintain a healthy beautiful smile. To schedule a dentist appointment for your child, call any of our offices in Canton, Dearborn, and Livonia.
