Dental Care for your kids
What to expect when your kids go to the dentist
Your child will likely be asked to remove any wrappers or packaging from their teeth. This will help the dentist get a good look at their teeth and diagnose any problems.
The dentist may also use a bright light to check for cavities or gum disease. If your child has a cavity, the dentist may need to fill it with a material called resin. If your child has gum disease, the dentist may recommend treatment with special toothpaste or mouth rinses.
If your child has any other concerns, such as pain when chewing or toothaches, the dentist may refer your child to an oral surgeon or orthodontist.
