Oral Wellness Exam and Cleanings

The mouth is one of the gateways to our internal body. At Kusp, we understand that your child’s health and well-being are of utmost importance not just for the health of the teeth, but also for the wellness of the body. Just as children have well-checks with their pediatricians, dental check-ups play a crucial role in maintaining healthy smiles and ensuring a lifetime of confident grins. A dental wellness exam and cleaning consists of multiple steps. Using the American Academy for Pediatric Dentistry as a guide this is what you can expect from your child’s dental wellness exam and their cleanings! Let’s embark on this journey together and empower your child with a positive dental experience!

Warm Environment

The first step towards nurturing your child’s dental check-up is creating a welcoming, soothing, and warm environment. The calmness and relaxation that a child experiences often comes from the “play” centers of the brain. As soon as the child comes through the door, we want the playful décor and comforting waiting areas all contribute to easing anxiety and promoting a positive mindset for your child.

Gentle Introduction

To ensure your child feels comfortable, our dental family will introduce themselves and set the foundation for building trust and nurturing a positive relationship with your child. They will take the time to explain each step of the process in age-appropriate language, ensuring your child feels informed and involved.

Oral Wellness Exam

During the dental check-up, the dentist will perform a thorough oral examination of your child’s mouth. Using specialized instruments, they will check for any signs of tooth decay, gum disease, or other oral health issues. The dentist will approach this examination with a gentle touch, ensuring minimal discomfort for your child.
