What Can a Child Expect During a Regular Dental Examination?

Children should always see a dentist before heading back to school in September. As this can cause fear in some, it is a good idea to take a look at what they can expect during a standard appointment. 

  • The dentist will thoroughly clean the teeth and gums (this is a painless experience).
  • The entire mouth will also be examined to make certain that no issues are present.
  • X-rays may be taken if an issue is suspected.
