Back To School Dental Checkup!
It’s that time of year again. You’ve got the new clothes and backpack, but what about your childrens smile and oral health? Back to school time includes making sure your children maintain good health throughout the school year so they dont miss too much school. Be sure youre scheduling their regular checkups to keep them as healthy as possible!
Dental Checkups are increasingly becoming mandatory in many states and should become an important part of back-to-school preparations. Tooth decay is one of the most common diseases in children and can interfere with learning and lead to more serious complications. A child who is in pain from tooth decay will have trouble focusing in school. Especially with young children, find a good pediatric dentist or a general dentist who is known for his ability to work with children. This will help encourage life long good dental habits. In addition to treating tooth decay, the back-to-school dental visit can focus on dental hygiene and prevention.
