Regular dental checkups are essential to maintaining good oral health for your child. We encourage regular checkups at least every six months. Seeing the dentist twice a year is recommended because your dentist can:
• check for problems that you might not see or feel
• find early signs of decay
• treat oral health problems early, while they are still manageable
Regular checkups include a thorough cleaning, polishing, and an oral exam. During the oral exam, the doctor checks the health of your child’s mouth, teeth, gums, cheeks, and tongue.
Your Child’s First Visit
Your first visit to the doctor typically includes an x-ray that allows the doctor to view the structure of the jaw, the position of any teeth that have not yet erupted, malformed roots, and tooth decay.
The initial visit also involves getting your child’s medical history. When you share your child’s medical history with the doctor, be sure to provide complete, up-to-date information on your child’s health. The information collected in your first visit will help the doctor select the safest and most effective method of treatment for you.
After the doctor has completed her examination and evaluated your child’s records, she will discuss your child’s diagnosis and any follow up treatment with you in detail. The cost of your child’s treatment will be discussed with you by the business assistants.
Regular checkup appointments typically take 20-40 minutes. Children are seen by appointment only. We make every effort to be on time for our patients and ask that you extend the same courtesy to us. If you cannot keep and appointment, please notify us immediately.
