Child and Adult Exams – Port City Family Dentistry

Children and adults have mostly similar procedures for dental exams. Having a child be examined every six months after their first examination (typically after their first tooth comes in) can be a proactive way to keep the child’s mouth healthy and strong. Most dental problems can be solved exponentially easier the earlier they are discovered. Dental exams for children and adults alike will include a cleaning and a discussion about dental hygiene as well. Adults should be prepared to talk about topics such as diet, brushing / flossing / mouthwash routines, tobacco use, medication, and any dental procedures that the dentist may feel are beneficial.
