Since homeschool has ended for kids in the Dallas, TX, area, and summer break has begun, now is the perfect time to set up a dental checkup appointment! A visit once every six months helps kids of all ages, from infants to teens, maintain better oral health. In today’s blog, we’re taking a close look at how we perform a detailed exam.
What Happens During the Exam?
The checkup means our team can provide a thorough exam of your child’s smile. Having a visit every six months means we can monitor the smile as your little one grows and changes, identifying possible areas of concern in the earliest stages. To obtain a precise and detailed picture of your child’s current oral health, we will employ advanced digital technology. With digital x-rays, we don’t use uncomfortable bitewings and instead employ a small, comfortable sensor to gather images quickly and easily. These images won’t need to be developed and will be available instantly chairside. Our team can make a much more accurate diagnosis, all while using 80% less radiation.
Schedule A Visit Now (and a Follow-Up in December)
If you make an appointment now, then the next visit should fall around winter break. Which means your little one doesn’t have to miss school to see us, and that we can address any oral health concerns well before the fall semester starts. Our exams will help identify issues like tooth decay, developing misalignment, gingivitis, and issues with the eruption of the permanent teeth, so we can address these before they cause serious complications.
Don’t Forget the Cleaning
The visit is also a chance to thoroughly clean the teeth too. A cleaning helps remove all plaque and tartar from the surface so the teeth. A result of bacteria, plaque weakens and erodes enamel, and also inflames gum tissues, increasing the risk of issues like tooth decay and gingivitis. With a cleaning, we help improve overall oral health, while also providing brighter smiles and fresh breath too. If you would like to schedule a visit for your child, please call our team today. If you have any questions or concerns about our approach to pediatric dentistry, then please contact our team today, we would love to hear from you!
