The first appointment is usually a "Get to Know" my new patient. All treatment begins with a thorough Medical and Oral Examination and when possible an X-Ray examination. At this first appointment a treatment plan will be developed and discussed with you and a written copy will be available before you leave.
We will discuss with you the oral condition of your child, the choice of filling materials available, and recommend treatment. We will discuss whether we can do the work in our office or if Dr. Schwartz will take your child to North York General Hospital.
If we can do the fillings in the office we will discuss whether we will use the no needle laser or if we be using local anaesthetic (needles). We will also discuss if conscious sedation will be used whether it is nitrous oxide (laughing gas) or oral sedation (versed).
