The Importance of Dental Exams for Children
Prevent Tooth Decay and Cavities
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, tooth decay is one of the most common chronic diseases affecting children in the United States. Preventative measures such as regular dental exams and cleanings are the best defense for cavities, gum disease, and other oral health-related issues. Dental cleanings are integral to healthy teeth and gums.
A Healthy Smile that Lasts a Lifetime
Furthermore, introducing your child to dentistry at an early age can help them develop healthy attitudes toward oral health that can last a lifetime. The healthy smile that results from dental cleanings can also provide children with a sense of confidence and assurance. Consequently, your child’s dental visits are an investment in their overall health and well-being.
What Happens If My Child Has a Cavity?
Don't worry — our kind team is here to help. We will:
Reassure Your Child
If a child feels judged or they think they're in trouble, they may associate the dentist with unhappy emotions. We prefer to take an understanding approach. Cavities happen commonly, especially in baby teeth, and we'll make your child feel better with compassionate care.
Educate Your Family
Maybe your child missed a spot while brushing. Or, they're having trouble flossing on their own. We can educate you and your family on techniques, dental products, and more, so that you can leave our Waltham office equipped to prevent tooth decay in the future.

What Patients Can Expect
during an Exam and Cleaning
Before a cleaning, our dental care team will first examine your child's smile at our Waltham, MA, office. This allows our dentists to evaluate the general state of the teeth and gums, as well as identify potential problem areas before getting started.
By adopting good brushing and flossing habits early on, children are more likely to have a healthy smile for life.
