The Second Appointment
We will devote the second visit to showing you and your child how to prevent dental decay and gum disease. Proper brushing and flossing techniques will be reviewed at this visit. Also, a discussion will take place about your child’s individual diet and how it affects his or her risk of dental decay. We will remove the plaque from your child’s teeth and apply a fluoride treatment. If your child requires further treatment, the doctor will consult with you to explain the treatment plan and procedures required.
After the first and second visits which involves an extensive health history and dental review and necessary x-rays, all subsequent visits will require only 1 visit for your child’s exam and hygiene visit. When older children are involved, we will try to complete the first appointment in only one visit whenever possible.
