Summer is almost over; the new school year is creeping ever closer. That means back-to-school shopping, appointments and scheduling your kid’s activities – Mom, did you remember signing up as a taxi driver? Dental checkups should be one of the appointments.
The number one health problem that keeps children from attending school is dental disease. In order to prevent dental issues that could contribute to missing school to see their dentist, ensure that your child has regular dental checkups. This is the key to catch bigger problems down the road. Their growth and development can be monitored, as well as age appropriate preventive measures such as fissure sealants can be initiated. Developing orthodontic concerns can also be addressed early – possibly saving a few dollars in the long run.
Will your child be participating in sports that require a mouthguard? Off the shelf boil and bite are ok in a pinch, but custom made athletic mouthguards are superior. It takes about a week to make one so book early. You wouldn’t want to miss a practice.
Now is the best time to visit dentist while there is no school to miss.
Ensure your child’s teeth sparkle on their first day back to school.
