Do Your Kids Need to See the Dentist?

School will soon be in session, and that might mean that your family’s schedule is about to kick into high gear. Between band practice and volleyball games, you might be feeling a bit overwhelmed about the many activities soon to hit your calendar. But before the rush of fall begins, it could be incredibly helpful to schedule preventive dental visits for your whole family, especially your kids. Regular dental appointments are key to preventing cavities and other dental problems that could cause your kids discomfort, and require restorative treatment. So, why not take advantage of the last little bit of summer while you can, by

Children Are Susceptible to Cavity Development

Even if your kids’ permanent teeth are not yet erupted, there are still compelling reasons to make sure they see the family dentist for regular dental care. Preventive appointments give the dentist a chance to check for burgeoning issues, and to remove any existing tartar buildup, often before it can lead to cavities, which would require extensive treatment like dental fillings.

In other words, preventive care can help your kids avoid the discomfort of dental problems, and helps to keep you from needing to pay for restorative dental treatment.

Plus, preventive dental appointments are minimally invasive, and helps teach kids the importance of lifelong dental care. Without proper dental hygiene, and regular professional cleanings, your kids are far more likely to suffer from cavities as well as gum disease. To help them enjoy lives filled with great oral health, and confidence in their smiles, make sure they form healthy habits from a young age.
