We provide high-quality family dentistry to help you prevent, detect, and treat a variety of dental problems through every stage.
Even the busy school year!
Now that we’re into the fall semester, you may find it a bit challenging to keep everyone’s oral health on track. With sports and other extra-curricular activities this time of year, we know how strapped families are! That’s why we aim to keep your family’s dental care as efficient and convenient as possible.
Along with your routine dental appointments with us, we’re also here to give you some helpful suggestions about caring for your teeth and gums while you’re away from our office!
Tips For Healthy Smiles This School Year!
Here are three tips to help you keep your kids’ teeth and gums clean, healthy, and safe during the hectic school year:
*Make Oral Hygiene A Daily Priority*
One of the things many parents welcome about the start of a new school year is getting back to a routine.
Summers are fun, but we all get a little sidetracked when it comes to our usual diet, daily plans, bedtimes, and yes, oral hygiene.
Once your family gets into the back-to-school habits you’re used to, it’s easier to stick to a morning and nighttime brushing and flossing routine so your mouth stays clean and bacteria is kept at bay. Make sure the kids are brushing twice a day for at least two minutes each time, remembering to brush their tongues, too, to clean out bacteria.
*Schedule Routine Cleanings & Exams*
Every six months, we want to see you for a routine cleaning and dental exam.
This is where we remove sticky plaque from your teeth, something your toothbrush can’t do!
Preventing the film of bacteria from building up and hardening on your teeth will ward off decay and gum disease infection.
We can also fortify your mouth from cavities with dental sealants and fluoride varnishes, as well. It’s just a quick preventive trick to keep your family’s smiles healthy and bright!
*Wear An Athletic Mouthguard During Sports*
Athletes everywhere are already conditioning for the fall sports season. Make sure your favorite player has the right protection against traumatic dental injuries!
We can custom-make an athletic mouthguard to fit over your child’s teeth in a snug but comfortable position so they can breathe, concentrate, and stay safe against blunt force contact during a game!
Protect Your Family’s Teeth!
If you didn’t get a chance to come in for a dental checkup before school started, be sure to give us a call and put one on the books before fall sports and other obligations fill up your family’s busy schedule.
