Diagnostic Dentistry Oral Eevaluation

Oral Evaluation

The American Academy of Pediatric Dentists recommend parents or caregivers schedule twice yearly appointments for children, with the first visit taking place within 6 months of the first milk tooth erupting, or by age one.

Regular oral evaluations are important to help ensure your child’s teeth and gums are healthy and for checking that their teeth, jaws and facial structures are developing normally.

Why Have An Oral Evaluation? What Happens During an Oral Evaluation?

Digital Dental Radiography

Our pediatric dentist will need to take regular dental x-rays of your child’s teeth. Children need more frequent x-rays than adults as their mouths are rapidly growing and changing, and they are also more susceptible towards developing cavities.

Pediatric dentists use x-rays to evaluate erupting teeth, to plan orthodontic treatment, to check bone development, and to assess any facial injuries.

A dental x-ray can also help identify any problems with wisdom teeth development, and can show any teeth that might be impacted. Dental x-rays are extremely useful for enabling a dentist to diagnose and treat conditions that are not visible to the naked eye.

Growth and Development Dental Evaluation

A growth and development dental evaluation is essential to make sure your child’s teeth and jaws are developing correctly. It can help detect any issues such as misaligned jaws or teeth, or to identify problems with jaw growth at an early stage.

This can be beneficial as early treatment can help prevent problems from becoming any worse, and may mean less treatment is required in the future.

Early treatment utilizes the growth of the jaws to help correct any problems.
