Regular Checkups

Regular dental checkups are essential for maintaining optimum oral health for everyone. This is especially so for children. Unlike adults, children are in a constant state of growth and development. The teeth and surrounding tissues need consistent monitoring during all stages of development. This is best done by a dentist who has advanced training in the area of children's dentistry.

Dr. Svoboda is a pediatric dentist, a specialist in providing comprehensive dental care to children. Like a pediatrician, he sees children of all ages. If your child has a problem beyond the scope of our practice, you will be referred to the best specialists in our area.

A typical pediatric dental checkup for your child will include:

One of our registered dental staff will clean and polish all teeth, apply a topical fluoride gel or varnish, and take X-rays.

Dr. Svoboda will:

  • Detect any areas of abnormal enamel and any existing tooth decay
  • Screen for possible developing problems with the bite (occlusion)
  • Detect any soft tissue and facial bone abnormalities
  • Detect abnormalities in the eruption pattern of the primary and permanent teeth
  • Determine the space requirements for the incoming permanent teeth
  • Monitor facial growth and development
  • Refer your child for an early orthodontic screening for all children no later than 8 years of age
  • Refer your child to other dental or medical specialists as needed
