As much as all of us require some kind of special attention when it comes to our teeth, children require a little bit more attention compared to adults because of their fragility and tenderness. That’s why it is very vital to visit the dentist regularly. Not only because your child will be able to learn healthy habits and how to care for their teeth, but also because the dentist is able to detect and manage early signs of oral diseases or abnormalities before they reach a critical stage. What’s more, the visits also give parents an opportunity to get the resources and education they need to give their children the very best chance of growing up with a bright, sparkly and healthy smile.
With any new patient appointment, there will be some sort of cross examination whereby the doctor will not only teach your child to be as comfortable as possible, but also do a thorough oral examination including x-rays and then customise a treatment plan that will be fit your child. In addition, the dentist does a complete review of your child’s medical health including special needs (if any) and addresses each and every concern pertaining to the same.
