Information On Your Child’s Dental Check-Up
School is beginning and one of the reasons that kids miss school is due to dental pain and problems. This may include decay that lands them in the chair needing a root canal, or a cavity that gets worse and causes a more severe problem for them. Dr. Cameron Fuller and his team recommend that your children visit the dentist every six months in order to make sure there are in the best health possible. Here are a few things to know before taking your child to the dentist.
The pediatric dentist will probably recommend x-rays if it has been awhile. X-rays help to determine if there are problems in between your child’s teeth that cannot be seen. X-rays also allow the dentist to see the existing bones around the tooth. X-rays should be taken once or twice a year depending upon whether your child is decay active or not. There are plenty of precautions that are taken in order to limit the amount of radiation exposure.
Ask your pediatric dentist if they recommend any treatment. It is important to know what is going on in your child’s mouth. If there are cavities, decay, or other malformations the dentist may recommend a variety of treatments. It is also important to ask the dentist about any recommendations for future treatment.
