What is the Dental Examination?
Either a dental hygienist or a dentist checks all of the teeth in
the child’s mouth for the presence of dental disease (cavities) and
gum disease. This is done using a disposable mirror and explorer.
All of the findings are written in the child’s chart.
We also check all of the child’s soft tissues (lips, cheeks, tongue) for any abnormalities and notes them in the child’s record.
In addition, the child is asked 1) if they have any problems with their teeth they would like to talk about and 2) if the child understands what we will be doing at the visit.
What is an oral prophylaxis (tooth cleaning)?
The dental hygienist will provide a cleaning for each enrolled child. This consists of debridement of soft deposits, scaling of hard deposits when necessary and selective polishing to remove stain.
What are dental sealants?
Sealants are easy to apply, and it takes only a few minutes to seal each tooth.. The sealant is 'painted' onto the tooth. Sometimes a special curing light is used to help the sealant harden.
Dental sealants act as a barrier, protecting the teeth against decay-causing bacteria. The sealants are usually applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth (premolars and molars) where decay occurs most often.
What is fluoride varnish?
Fluoride varnish provides a concentrated, temporary dose of fluoride to the tooth surface. The varnish holds fluoride close to the tooth surface for a longer period of time than other concentrated fluoride products. Unlike low-dose fluorides available over the counter fluoride varnish must be applied by a healthcare professional.
