Dental Exams Dentistry Frisco, Texas

Regular dental exams are an important part of preventive health care.
During a dental exam for young children, the dentist will clean your child’s teeth and evaluate your child’s risk of tooth decay.

A dental exam for young children might include the application of various protective measures – such as sealants or fluoride treatments – to reduce the risk of decay.

A dental exam for children might also include dental X-rays (radiographs) or other diagnostic procedures.

During a dental exam for children, the dentist will likely discuss your child’s diet and oral hygiene habits and demonstrate proper brushing and flossing techniques.

Dental exams might also include counseling about diet, use of tobacco products, the health risks associated with tobacco, substance abuse, and oral piercings and other lifestyle factors that can affect oral health.

During a dental exam, your dentist or hygienist will also ask about:

Any health problems you have or medications you’re taking and discuss how they might affect your oral health. If you have diabetes, for example, you’re at increased risk of gum disease. Any medication that contributes to dry mouth can increase your risk of tooth decay. If arthritis interferes with your ability to effectively brush your teeth, your dentist or hygienist might show you how to insert the handle of your toothbrush into a rubber ball for easier use or recommend a powered or electric toothbrush.

During a dental exam for older children/teens, the dentist will:

Evaluate your overall health and oral hygiene
Evaluate your risk of tooth decay, root decay, and gum or bone disease
Evaluate your need for tooth restoration or tooth replacement
Check your bite and jaw for problems
Remove any stains or deposits on your teeth
Demonstrate proper cleaning techniques for your teeth or dentures
Assessyour need for fluoride
Take dental X-raysor, if necessary, do other diagnostic procedures

Common Questions for Parents

How often does my child need to see the pediatric dentist?
A check-up every six months is recommended in order prevent cavities and other dental problems. However, your pediatric dentist can tell you when and how often your child should visit based on their personal oral health.
Are baby teeth really that important to my child?
Primary, or “baby,” teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt.
When should I take my child to the dentist for the first check-up?
In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when the first tooth appears, or no later than his/her first birthday.
Why is it important to see a pediatric dentist instead of a general dentist?
Every dentist undergoes the same initial educational process, but those looking to become specialists in certain fields (such as orthodontics, periodontics, oral surgery, or, of course, pediatric care) must then enter into additional years of advanced training so that they’re fully prepared to provide their patients with the best care possible. Here in Frisco, parents can rest assured that our doctors know how to handle the unique challenges that come with treating children and ensure healthy, happy results that last for years to come – in fact, all four are certified by the Texas State Board and are Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry.

What diet and nutritional advice can be offered for building strong teeth?

Experts agree that children need food from all the major food groups to grow properly and stay healthy. Too many carbohydrates, sugars (for example, from cake, cookies, candies, milk, fruit juice, and other sugary foods and beverages), and savory foods and starches (for example, pretzels and potato chips) can cause tooth decay. How long carbohydrates remain on the teeth is the main culprit that leads to tooth decay. Read more

The effects of fruit on kids teeth

We all know that fruit is full of vitamins and an important part of kids diets. But did you know that too much fruit (whether it’s fresh fruit, fruit juices, dried fruit or canned fruit) can have a negative effect and contribute to problems such as cavities and erosion, especially if your kids are grazing on fruit all day?

Are sports drinks okay for kids?

Statistics continue to show an alarming increase in the consumption of sports and energy drinks, especially among kids. Along with having the potential to cause various health problems, these beverages can cause irreversible damage to teeth. And sugar is only part of the reason — high acidity levels in these drinks erode enamel, the outer layer of teeth. Read more
