Around here, we are all about making kids smile, and keeping young mouths healthy all year long! So, with all the back to school chaos, we wouldn’t want you to lose sight of your family’s oral health needs. That’s why, for today’s post, our Sandy, UT dentist’s office has decided to share some tips for staying on track. Keep reading, and then be sure to get in touch and schedule your family’s next trip to see Dr. Rooklidge and the rest of our team!
Prevention Starts At Home (But It Doesn’t End There)
Let’s be honest: as a parent, it is up to you to set the standards high for your kids. If you are lax about oral hygiene they will be too. But the opposite is true. You see, they are watching you and will pick up on your good daily hygiene habits like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoride. That will set them up for a healthy and happy life.
What you have them do in-between visits to our Sandy, UT dentist’s office will be the foundation upon which we will build their program of preventive dentistry. There will always be more work needed to keep your mouth free of bacteria and your smile looking as good as it possibly can when they go back to school.
Remember: any plaque that is overlooked or out of reach will harden and become calculus (tartar). That calculus will quickly begin doing damage, eating away at the enamel of your teeth, contributing to decay, tooth loss, and, eventually, bone loss.
Sometimes it takes a professionally-trained eye to see what is going on in your mouth before it causes lots of extra pain and expense. Plus, to handle the situation, it usually requires special tools that you won’t find in your bathroom closet!
Fortunately, we’ve got just what you need. At Dentistry For Children, our preventative treatments include comprehensive oral exams and professional teeth cleanings, dental sealants, fluoride treatments, and a whole lot more besides.
Your Kids Are Our Focus!
Unlike many other dental offices, Dentistry for Children exclusively focuses on caring for patients ranging from a year old to 18 years old. This allows us to provide the best care possible for teeth and mouths that are still developing and changing. With our help, your child’s smile can grow into a healthy, gorgeous adult smile!
As such, we can take prevention deeper than you can at home. Our professional teeth cleanings can help you ward off cavities and decay, and they are far more pleasant than what happens when you ignore your needs now and then have to get dental fillings, root canals, periodontal disease treatments, or extractions down the road.
Whatever your child’s needs may be, we will take care of it so you won’t have to worry.
