With summer’s end on the horizon and school beginning again, it’s time to bring the focus back to getting your child ready for the school year! The one thing you don’t want is for your child to feel uncomfortable with her smile when she walks into her new classroom this year! Here are a few things you can do to ensure that your student can focus on all the right things at school this year!
Create (or Enforce) an Oral Hygiene Routine: If you don’t remind them, they won’t remember! Research shows that it takes about 21 days to form a habit. Brushing and flossing habits are incredibly important, and if your student doesn’t have one in place, now’s the time to start!
Look into Dental Sealants: We often recommend dental sealants for children and teens because it is so common for them to get cavities! Discuss good eating habits, and if all else fails, sealants might be a good idea!
Schedule a Cleaning: One very important part of growing up with a healthy smile is getting routine dental cleanings. A cleaning will boost your student’s confidence, and it will give us a chance to make sure her smile is growing exactly as it should!
Make sure a dental appointment is on the back-to-school-to-do list for your student! They’ll feel more confident smiling, and you’ll rest easy knowing that you can focus on homework and other activities this fall! Contact us today to set up an appointment. We’d love to see you both soon!
