As we prepare to begin a new school year, it’s a great time to schedule your family for an annual checkup.
For some, the start of the school year means more activities and more eating on the run. We also find that parents sometimes have less control of what their school aged children eat and drink. This is why we find it is very important to keep regular checkups with your local dentist.
Regular appointments can not only help with preventing cavities and tooth decay, but can also help with early detection of illness or defects.
Treating tooth decay early prevents the condition from getting worse and costs less than later treatments if left unresolved.
Children involved in sports and activities are more likely to suffer damage such as a chipped tooth or jaw injury. Having a familiarity with a local dentist for regular checkups will help if dental emergencies arise. The child, especially younger children, is less likely to be as fearful or scared.
So, if you’re looking for a local dentist, reach out to us. We will be happy to speak with you about your dental health needs.
