Exams and Prevention
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry and American Academy of Pediatrics recommends every child see a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts and no later than their first birthday. During a routine check-up, your child's teeth will be polished to remove any plaque build-up or tartar.
The exam will include exploration of the child’s mouth and gums and a discussion regarding at-home dental hygiene. Preventive dentistry starts with instructing patients and/or parents in proper brushing and flossing techniques. We do this at every visit. If the child’s teeth exhibit decay or other problems requiring further treatment, the dentist will discuss them with you at this time.
Our pediatric dentists and staff are committed to helping your child enjoy healthy teeth throughout their childhood and work with you to help them build a strong foundation for a lifetime of oral health.
