Summer may be known as a time for visiting family, spending more time outdoors with friends, and frequenting local attractions, like the library, the park and the pool. But summer can also be a great time to visit the family dentist. After all, children are like adults, in that they need regular professional dental cleanings to keep their smiles healthy and beautiful. By scheduling appointments over summer break, your kids can get all the preventive care they need, without having to worry about missing class or their extracurricular activities to do so. If you want to keep your kids smiling, why not take them to visit the dentist this summer?
Summer Is a Great Time for Kids’ Dental Checkups
Most dentists recommend patients visit for professional checkups and cleanings at least twice a year, after the age of one. This means that for many children, it is possible to schedule these appointments around school holidays, rather than trying to squeeze them into already full schedules during the academic year.
If your children get their teeth cleaned before school begins again, their winter break could be a great time to go for their follow-up visits.
Of course, it’s also important to keep in mind that some children may be prone to developing cavities due to genetic or dietary issues. In these cases, the dentist might actually recommend more frequent cleanings in order to accurately protect their smiles.
Remember, Regular Cleanings Are Essential
Of course, it’s also important to remember that regular dental hygiene at home can help to protect your kids’ teeth against cavities and other common issues, including gum disease. So make sure your kids learn from an early age to brush and floss their teeth daily.
