It might not be something your kids want to admit. As for you, you might be experiencing a mix of emotions! Part of you is relieved that the structure of the daily school schedule is about to be back in place (but part of you is going to really miss the kiddos). However, no matter how you look at it, school is not going to be out for that much longer! Since you’ve likely got a ton on your plate and only so much time to get it all done, so everyone is ready for the exciting first day, our Auburn Hills, MI practice thought you might like some helpful dental hints to get your kids’ oral health all ready to go.
Hint: Sealants Really Offer Amazing Protection (And Last)
You might feel like you’re on the fence regarding dental sealants. We remind you that this is a fantastic choice as kids head back to school for their oral health. Here’s why:
- They literally cover up the back teeth chewing surfaces, so plaque, sugars, and more don’t touch them.
- They last so very long (up to 10 years), which mean school year after school year of protection against cavities!
Hint: Everyone’s Got The Same Idea You Have!
Remember that everyone else with kids heading back to school has little ones who need dental care, too. So that means those with kids who have not yet gotten their preventive care taken care of for the summer may also be thinking, “Oh, I’d better set up a dental visit before summer is completely over!” Translation: Call us right away if you want to come in for sealants, preventive dental care, or anything else, so you’re sure to get the time and date that will work the best for you along this back-to-school, oral health journey.
Hint: You’ve Got The Rest Of The Year, Too
Yep, we know it’s easier in many instances to come in for dental visits when the summertime is still free of class time and your kiddos don’t have tight schedules. However, there’s no reason to feel frantic if you still have care to ensure your children get (like fillings) but you don’t think you’ll have time to schedule it before class resumes. Schedule it during the school day! Or, set up your winter break visit for things like sealants or orthodontic consultations. Our team is always happy to work with you to help keep your child’s dental care on track.
