It’s Time For Your Back-to-School Dental Exam

Featured Image

Every kid in the Houston area needs to be ready for the coming school year. From getting up on time to obeying various study and homework schedules, kids will need to be prepared for what they can expect in school. But kids should also be physically ready for school, and part of that includes ensuring their teeth are clean and healthy. Our dentists at Made Ya Smile Dental West 8 in Houston, TX are here to provide dental exams to kids ready for school.

A back-to-school dental exam is about more than cleaning your child’s teeth and making them look their best. The review is also about checking how your child’s teeth are forming and if they are growing in the right places.

What Makes a Dental Exam So Ideal For Kids?

There are many great reasons why your kids should undergo a thorough dental exam before the school year starts:

  • An exam will start with a complete cleaning that clears plaque and tartar from the teeth, preventing acids that can destroy the teeth and cause cavities.

  • Your kids can learn about dental care and how important it is for them to keep their teeth clean.

  • Kids who visit the dentist every six months will develop a better attitude about dentists and the work they provide. Those kids will want to come back to the dentist every six months, pushing them toward a lifetime of healthy smiles.

  • Parents can also learn what dental practices they should teach their kids at home. You can ask our dentists about what your kids need and how they can receive thorough care.

What Happens During a Dental Exam?

Our team approach at Made Ya Smile in Houston can help your child receive a healthy smile by completing a few steps in our dental exam:

  • We can clean your child’s teeth by removing plaque and tartar from the teeth and around the gums.

  • We will also review how the gums feel and if they are inflamed or worn.

  • Each tooth is also checked for possible signs of decay.

  • We can see how well your child’s adult teeth are forming and if they are erupting on time and in the right places. We can provide a referral to an orthodontist if your child requires further help.

  • An oral cancer screening will also occur during each dental exam. Our dentists can check the soft tissues and identify possible concerns that require further examination.
