Comprehensive Kids Dental Exams and Gentle Cleaning in Richmond

Preventing Problems Before They Start

The health of your child’s teeth and mouth is very important to the well-being of the entire body. Though routine brushing and flossing at home are necessary to keep your youngster’s smile looking its best, visiting our office for a comprehensive exam and cleaning is essential.

 

The Canadian Academy of Pediatric Dentistry recommends your child visit the dentist every six months to ensure his or her teeth stay healthy and smile stays beautiful. 

 

By routinely seeing Dr. Leila for exams and cleanings, your son or daughter can:

The Exam

During your child’s exam, Dr. Leila will thoroughly examine his or her teeth and gums for signs of tooth decay, gum disease, and other oral health problems. The dentist may also want to take X-rays to see what is happening beneath the surface of the teeth. The images will help her discover dental issues not visible to the naked eye.

Professional Cleanings

Dr. Leila or a hygienist will perform a thorough clinical oral exam. Then we will begin your child’s cleaning by exploring the surface of the teeth to determine if there are any cavities and to examine the quality of existing fillings. 

 

Next, we will carefully clean your child’s teeth with a variety of tools to remove any hard mineral buildup (calculus) from the teeth. Next, we will floss your child’s teeth, use a polishing compound, and apply fluoride.

 

If Dr. Leila or the hygienist finds tooth decay, gum disease, or any other issues, we will talk to you about different treatment options. We will also talk about changing your child’s brushing, flossing, and dietary habits.

 

If your youngster’s teeth and gums appear to be healthy, our office will probably recommend that your child continue his or her brushing and flossing routine as usual.
