Here at Pediatric Dental Associates of Manhattan, we are proud to offer dental examinations and x-rays to our patients.
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. We start by doing a professional cleaning, removing all of the bad tartar and other buildup on your child’s teeth.
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.
X-rays help us look inside your child’s teeth for problems invisible to the naked eye. We can often diagnose cavities much more quickly with an X-ray. They are also helpful for finding any gum or teeth problems that we need to address.
During your child’s visit, we will also talk about good home care. We believe what you do at home really affects your child’s teeth. For this reason, we will acknowledge any areas on which you need to concentrate so your child can have a healthy smile.
