Wow, can you believe the back-to-school season is already upon us? It feels as if summer started yesterday! Are you ready to send your kids back to school with a shining smile? Preventive dentistry is the best way to protect them.

_Check-listEditedThese next couple of days will be busy as you finish checking things off your back to school checklist. Have you made one for your children’s dental hygiene? Here are some things to keep in mind:

  • Schedule their bi-annual dental cleaning
  • Create an oral hygiene routine
  • Replace their toothbrush
  • Shop for healthy foods and snacks
  • If your child plays sports- protect their teeth with a custom mouth-guard

Besides the importance of regular maintenance, their cleaning appointments can also lead to them missing less school in the future. We will deeply clean your child’s mouth and can prevent further dental issues. Having a set routine helps them get in a good habit and understand the importance of maintaining their oral hygiene.

It’s recommended to change your toothbrush every three months or earlier if the bristles are frayed. Healthy foods and snacks can strengthen teeth which may result in fewer cavities. When playing sports, it’s important for your child to wear a mouth-guard to shield their smile from unpredicted hits. Damages can sometimes lead to chips, fractures, and extractions.
