Once school let out for summer, did it feel like your full-time job became keeping your kids busy. In other words, are you putting a great deal of effort into helping your kids avoid that most dreaded of states – boredom? If so, your family dentist could actually be of help. While a trip to the dentist might not feel like a vacation, preventive care is essential for kids’ smiles, and summer break is a great time to schedule dental cleanings. So why not take advantage of your more laidback summer schedule, and
visit the dentist as a family, before the kids head back to school?
Preventive Care Is Important for Children and Adults Alike
Many parents may not realize that preventive care is just as important for children as it is for adults. Even kids who only have baby teeth visible, should still be doing all they can to prevent cavities and other dental problems, which can create sensitivity or discomfort. Premature loss of teeth, potentially due to cavities or infection, can also lead to alignment problems as permanent teeth come in. So preventive care is important, at all ages.
Take Advantage of Summer Break with Dental Care
Summer break provides many families a great opportunity to get key preventive care, since kids don’t have to miss class to attend dental appointments over their summer vacations. Plus, if your kids get dental cleanings now, you could likely schedule their next visits over fall or winter break, allowing them to get all the smile care they need without having to miss a single class or extracurricular activity to do so!
