Here at the office of Sevak Abrahamian, DDS, LLC, it is our priority to provide your child with high quality and gentle care, which starts with our pediatric dental exams. We have made our practice one that is dedicated to an atmosphere best described as fun, comfortable, and welcoming.
When you bring your child in for his or her first visit, our Tewksbury kids dentist will begin by getting your child acquainted with what we do. That means meeting our staff and learning what the tools and equipment are for. After all, they only seem scary when they are unfamiliar. Our pediatric dental exams include a physical checkup of your child’s teeth along with a visual inspection of them. X-rays are essential for finding the results of tooth decay, cavities. The sooner one is diagnosed and treated with a filling, the less opportunity there is for it to grow and put her or him at increased risk for a toothache or the loss of a tooth entirely. Baby (primary) teeth are supposed to fall out on a certain schedule. If that timeline is altered by having the tooth removed too soon, it can lead to complications such as your child’s other teeth shifting and leaving insufficient room for the adult (permanent) teeth to grow in later. In addition to the exam itself and fillings for cavities, our Tewksbury kids dentist will also do a thorough teeth cleaning, which eliminates any remaining dental plaque and tartar that remain between teeth or in gum pockets. This is like hitting the reset button, making optimal dental health a much greater possibility moving forward.
Bring your child in once every six months for a checkup and cleaning with our Tewksbury kids dentist. It’s a vital aspect of helping to ensure the least chance for problems like cavities, toothaches, and extractions.
