The comprehensive examination is a process in which the doctor gathers information about your child’s teeth, growth, and development to provide a thorough diagnosis, prognosis, and treatment plan. The doctor will evaluate and monitor your child’s growth and development at each preventive appointment. This is critical for proper function as well as aesthetics. During this visual examination, the doctor locates areas of decay and cavities on chewing surfaces and between the teeth. The doctor uses both a clinical exam and dental X-ray findings to determine the optimal treatment for your child’s oral needs.
The doctor will examine your child’s gum tissues to ensure that gum disease is detected in its early stages. Our hygiene department provides preventive care for your child and home care instructions for parents and patients. This will enable your child to maintain proper brushing and flossing habits and a healthy mouth for a lifetime.
