Children’s Summer Smile Suggestions

sunoceanYou have a pretty good handle on how to care for your smile and protect your oral health over the summer. However, have you thought much about the best way to use the summer to your advantage when it comes to protecting your little one’s smile? Do yourself a favor and get planning! The warmer season (when school is out and you’ve got a ton of freed up time) is often a wonderful option for taking care of your child’s smile without stress.

Schedule A First Visit

Is it time to bring your little one in for his or her first visit with the dentist? If so, summer is often a wonderful time to make this happen (particularly if you have older children who need visits, too, and are on summer vacation). Give us a call to set up a visit, so we can begin establishing excellent oral health habits.

Follow Up With Preventive Treatments

Perhaps you are bringing your on-summer-vacation children in because their schedules are completely free. After we provide them with dental cleanings and checkups to keep their teeth and gums nice and healthy, we may suggest additional preventive treatments to promote optimal oral health. Whether your kids will benefit from sealants or fluoride treatments, get them in during the summer months for a convenient time to protect their smiles.

Schedule Restorative Care

Has your child needed a filling for a little while but everyone’s daily schedules made pulling your child out of class too difficult? Take advantage of this time off to get your child’s smile repaired. You’ll be glad you did – the sooner your child receives a restoration, the easier it is to regain oral health.
