The importance of a back-to-school dental exam
Even the seemingly cleanest teeth can harbor harmful bacteria in the hard-to-brush nooks and crannies. And many dental problems (like gum disease) advance imperceptibly, causing no apparent symptoms until significant damage is done to the teeth, gums, and other tissues.
Our excellent dental team leaves no stone unturned, dentally speaking, to prevent such issues and ensures optimal health for your child. We begin by perusing your child’s medical and dental history, then assess any current problems that may be causing trouble or discomfort. We may also utilize x-ray imaging and structural examinations to check that your child’s dental development is progressing without a hitch.
The examination focuses on every part of the mouth, including the gums, teeth, joints, and jawbone, to avoid potential future complications that may cause spacing or alignment issues, chewing difficulties, or trouble with speech.
We’ll also demonstrate the most effective hygiene practices, including the best brushing, flossing, and rinsing techniques. And we’ll personalize a post-exam care plan specifically for your child’s needs to help them maintain optimal dental health.
By scheduling a back-to-school dental exam, you can proactively help your child return to school with a healthy, brilliant smile.
The additional benefits of a back-to-school dental exam
Bringing your child in for a back-to-school dental exam can be doubly beneficial, as we’re excited to offer supplementary treatments with almost immediate, long-lasting benefits. A professional cleaning will thoroughly remove bacteria and remove plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth. Fluoride treatment will supply an enamel-strengthening boost, and an excellent post-cleaning polish will yield a dazzlingly white smile. All while helping prevent gum disease (gingivitis).
We also offer sealants: thin, invisible coatings that envelop your child’s teeth and provide a barrier against bacteria and food particles, reducing cavity risk by up to 80%.
