During the course of your child’s routine oral examinations, we not only check for gum and tooth health but also assess the surrounding tissues, including the tongue and tonsils, to ensure they are healthy and free of lesions. We also evaluate your child for signs of reflux.

Evaluations of the Jaws and the Teeth

Though it might not initially seem critical, examining how the teeth bite together is just as important as checking for potential cavities. Through these evaluations, we track your child’s jaw growth and the positioning of their teeth. Early detection is key, as it allows for early intervention in orthodontic treatments, potentially correcting problems earlier, faster, and reducing treatment time.
