What to Expect at Your Regular Checkup
During the dental check-up we will discuss your child’s medical and dental history. Your child’s teeth will be examined and cleaned to remove any plaque or unsightly stain build-up that could irritate gums or cause tooth decay. Your child’s systemic fluoride status will be evaluated and a fluoride varnish may be applied to prevent cavities and strengthen teeth. Your child will also learn the proper techniques for brushing and flossing and the importance of limited snacking.
