Protecting Those Pearly Whites
Dental exams are really a cornerstone of preventative dental care for kids. As a board-certified pediatric dentist, Dr. Kumar is an expert at diagnostics and she can spot tooth decay, gum disease and other issues early on while they’re still reversible or easily treated.
Cavities Have Nowhere to Hide!
By combining comprehensive dental exams with low-dose, digital x-rays, dental problems have nowhere to hide. We rely on the latest technology to ensure that we can safely and effectively see every inch of your child’s mouth. Often, everything will be perfectly fine and your kiddo will continue their membership in our Cavity-Free Club. However, if we do spot a concern, such as tooth decay, we can stop it in its tracks.
Dr. Kumar will do a tooth count and use her special instruments to examine your little one’s teeth and gums. If necessary, we may also take some digital x-rays. In addition to looking for tooth decay and gum disease, Dr. Kumar will make sure your child’s jaw and teeth are developing correctly, chat with them about their brushing and flossing habits, and answer any questions you have. Of course, when the visit is complete, we’ll send your child off to claim their prize.
Kids should visit the dentist twice a year for a check-up.
About ¼ of kids between ages two and five have experienced tooth decay.
Children should have their first dental exam six months after their first tooth or by age one.
