Oral health plays a major role in the overall health and well being of your children. That is why you will find dentists at all Blue Hills Dental locations who are skilled at treating children of all ages.
Dental exams for children are extensive. Before the exam begins, the dentist reviews the child’s health history to determine if there may be a need for any special dental care. The examination itself includes examining the health and condition of the teeth, gums, soft tissue, head and neck. In addition to the exam, the dentist will monitor the growth of the jaw, development of the teeth and evaluate any habits that can affect the oral health of the child, such as thumb sucking, teeth grinding, or nail biting.
