A pediatric dental exam is just one step of the preventive dentistry services we offer, but it is the most important! At your child’s dental exam, the dentist at Tooth + Tusk Pediatric Dentistry and Orthodontics will be able to establish a baseline for your child’s dental development. Based on x-rays and past exams, our dentist can work with you to establish a treatment plan if additional procedures or restorative dentistry are needed.
Pediatric Dental Exams in Beaverton, OR
We truly believe that regular dental examinations are important in order for your child to have good dental health and a smile of which he or she can be proud. During your child’s dental exam, we are committed to making your child feel comfortable. For younger children, you can even hold your child on your lap while we perform the dental exam if that will make them feel more at ease.
What to Expect
We start by doing a professional dental cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildups on your child’s teeth that cannot be removed by brushing or flossing alone.
We then do an examination, looking to catch and fix any problems before they become bigger ones. We examine each tooth, looking for any signs of decay, damage, or any other problems, such as signs of infection. We want to correct any problems your child may have before they get any worse. If we do notice anything unusual, we will discuss a plan of treatment for going forward.
