This involves a thorough check of all the teeth for cavities (decay / caries), broken or discoloured fillings, fractures, etc. We also check the gums for any signs of gum disease or any other problems. We check all the areas in the mouth for any sign of oral cancer. If you could benefit from orthodontics (braces) or any sort of cosmetic treatment we will tell you.
We will check your child's teeth and mouth for any problems, with particular emphasis on prevention of possible future problems. If you feel your child needs some motivation tell them that the dentist is going to count their teeth. If you are worried they will not open their mouth bring their toothbrush so they can show the dentist how well they brush.
We appreciate you might be nervous about visiting your dentist so please review our advice for nervous patients here.
