The benefits of dental examinations for children in the Las Vegas, Nevada areaPosted By Dr. Christopher Lim
What is a dental examination?Dr. Christopher Lim describes dental examinations as a time during which our team can evaluate and monitor oral health. They are incredibly important as they allow the dental staff to check for conditions such as gum disease and cavities. These conditions can have a negative impact on one’s oral health, and can cause patients to experience further issues that may require additional treatments. Instead, we want our patients to see us regularly to check for these problems before they become serious.
What are the benefits of dental examinations?A dental examination is the time for our team to bond with your child while also checking for signs of problems. An examination also includes a thorough professional cleaning of the teeth, and in many instances, x-rays. X-rays allow us to look below the gum line and into the teeth to spot problems early enough for successful intervention. It also allows us to monitor the adult teeth coming in.
Examinations are incredibly important. They give the staff of Hillside Dental the opportunity to look for:
- Problems with bite alignment
- Signs of periodontal disease
- Areas of decay
