The Checkup

Comprehensive Oral Evaluation

A comprehensive dental examination and health history is performed at each visit. We are in constant communication with the appropriate health care professionals and other dental specialists as needed.  It is our goal to coordinate treatment that suits the individual child.

X-Rays

Dental x-rays are a very important diagnostic tool to help detect and treat dental lesions and diagnose and treat other oral pathologies. Please know, however, that our office adheres to the concept of “image gently”.  This means, we use state of the art digital dental x-ray equipment which uses the lowest radiation possible and we only take x-rays when necessary. You can therefore be assured if we need to take an x-ray, it is absolutely recommended and safe for your child.

Fluoride Treatment

Fluoride has been proved to strengthen teeth and prevent cavities. Dr. Babich will review fluoride requirements for each individual patient and custom design appropriate recommendations depending on age, diet, rate of cavities, and local fluoride policies.
