A limited Problem-focused dental exam is a type of emergency exam in which the dentist will diagnose any specific acute problem in your child's mouth instead of evaluating the whole dental system. Most of such oral conditions include:
- Acute infection
- Dental emergency
- Traumatic injury
- Oral lesion or wisdom tooth eruption
During this examination, the dentist will look for any of these issues virtually and might even go with a detailed examination using X-rays or other dental equipment to examine the area that isn't visible with naked eyes. Depending on these results, the dentist will recommend the right treatment for your child or schedule a follow-up visit to complete the whole procedure.
