School’s starting up, and your child has a whole new wardrobe to get them started in style. What goes better with brand-new back-to-school clothes than a sparkling smile? Read on for some dental tips to keep your kid’s oral health on track this fall.
Lose track of your appointments over the summer? As the schedule fills up with fun activities, doctor and dentist appointments often get canceled. If you haven’t rescheduled, make sure you do so. Regular visits to the dentist are crucial to your child’s dental growth and health.
Has your child seen an orthodontist yet? If not, fall is a great time to start thinking about it. It’s recommended that children see an orthodontist for a checkup by the age of 7. This will allow the doctor to assess your kid’s mouth, and address any issues early before they develop and worsen.
This fall, get back in the groove of packing lunches for your children. Sending them into school with a lunchbox full of healthy goodies will keep their smile in tip-top shape. Stumped on what to pack? We have some ideas. Crunchy fruits and veggies like apples and carrots are great. Not only are they healthy, but that extra crunch helps to clean their teeth.
With school starting back up, so are sports. Ensure the safety of your child and their dental health by getting them fitted for a custom mouthguard. Without a mouthguard, contact sports can leave your child with tooth trauma such as a dead tooth, chipped or broken tooth, or even a missing tooth.
As the school year ramps back up, we’re here to address any dental concerns or issues that come up with you and your family. Looking forward to seeing you at your next visit!
