X-rays are an important part of a complete examination. There are many conditions that cannot be diagnosed visibly with a clinical examination. Generally, x-rays are taken once a year unless a specific concern is present. At ABC Dental we have child-friendly techniques of taking x-rays.
This is a form of fluoride that is applied to teeth as preventive therapy. This can be used to help prevent decay, remineralise the tooth surface, and to treat dentine hypersensitivity.

In some cases, your child may be unable to receive dental treatment the conventional way. In these cases, we have the option of doing a conscious sedation. Most children are candidates for an in-office conscious sedation. Please discuss this option with your dental team.
We understand that some of our patients may have traveled a great distance to see us. We strive to accommodate our out of town patients by booking and completing treatment on back-to-back days (if appropriate). However, during the consultation medical history, current health status, and treatment needed will be discussed. These are all factors that determine whether or not a sedation would be appropriate for your child. For the safety of your child, it is very important that you inform our staff of all medical issues concerning your child. Please ask our receptionists about special room rates at our local hotels.
