Summer Dental Tips for Kids
School is over, and summer is almost here! For some of us, this means lazy afternoons by the pool and fun family evenings at sporting events, concerts or traveling. For others, it’s all about playing video games, staying up late, and snacking on junk food. We want to help you keep your family’s teeth healthy and safe with some tips that will also save you time and money.
Get a New Toothbrush: If it’s been 3 months since you last changed your family’s toothbrush, it’s time to get a new one! We offer a brand new toothbrush after checkup and cleaning appointments. If your child is due for an exam, call us today – we’ll happily give you an Oral Hygiene Kit after your visit!
Eat Healthy Summer Snacks: If your child is spending time at camp or with a baby sitter, make sure to provide snacks that are healthy and good for their teeth like cheese sticks, veggie sticks, fresh fruit, dried fruit chips, and trail mix with nuts and fruits.
Stay Hydrated with Water: Help your child stay hydrated and prevent future cavities by giving water instead of sports drinks and soda. All that sugar can lead to increased cavities and expenses.
Invest in a Protective Mouthgard: If your child is staying active with summer sports or outdoor activities, talk to our dentists about a custom protective mouthguard or sportsguard.
Schedule Dental Checkups & Treatment: We know it’s always a challenge scheduling and keeping dental visits during the school year. Now is a great time to schedule your child’s checkup, cleaning and any treatment that you may have been delaying. Taking care of recommended dental treatment now before they become an emergency saves you time and money.
Call our Continuing Care Representatives at today (888) 365-6531 to schedule your child’s next visit.
