At this visit we will emphasize oral hygiene techniques to be practiced by both you and your child. We will answer any questions for you. A full examination of the teeth and supporting structures will be done, and the occlusion (bite) will be evaluated. Radiographs (x-rays) will be taken as necessary, usually every twelve months, to assure a thorough and comprehensive examination. Depending on the age of your child (usually 3 years or older), a prophylaxis (cleaning of teeth) and fluoride treatment will be performed. When treatment has been completed, your child will be placed on a periodic exam (recall) schedule, and you will receive a text message and, or an email reminder before the appointment.
