Start The School Year With A Smile

It’s the start of a new school year and your kids are set with new clothes and school supplies. But don’t forget about oral health! Add these dental health tips to your back-to-school checklist.

  1. Morning Brush
    Mornings are typically rushed trying to get everyone out the door, which may mean brushing your child’s teeth may be forgotten. Instead, try getting them to do it as soon as they wake up or right after breakfast.
  2. Packing a Healthy Lunch
    Healthy snacks are great for our overall health, including oral health. Avoid sugary or acidic snacks.
  3. Book a Dental Visit
    Let’s face it, summer tends to be full of fun and sugary snacks! To prevent any sugar bugs from forming into actual cavities or tooth decay, make sure to visit the dentist every 6 months for optimum oral health!
  4. Brushing & Flossing at Night
    A parent’s worst nightmare! Try making a fun game out of brushing and flossing by  trying disclosing tablets, which show kids the areas they’ve missed. Kids tend to find this to be a fun activity and may motivate them in keeping their teeth extra clean! 
  5. Protecting Teeth During Sports Activities
    Make sure your child is wearing the proper gear during all sports, especially in high contact sports to protect those beautiful smiles.

Cavities and other dental diseases can lead to pain, trouble eating, difficulty speaking, self- esteem issues and school absences. In fact, dental disease causes kids to miss more than 51 million school hours each year.

Bring the family in for a back to school cleaning and check up, and have the kids sign up for our cavity free club! Happy school year!
