You’ve heard from us that we think you should definitely get your child’s next dental visit on the books in preparation for the new, quickly approaching school year. However, we happen to have some additional thoughts! You’ve got a supply list coming your way as far as what your children need for educational purposes. So, if you can find a little room, we encourage you to add a few things to that compilation of items to buy that can protect your child’s oral health. Have any remaining questions? If so, just remember to direct them to our Southlake, TX team!
#1: An Athletic Mouthguard!
While you’re perfectly happy to bring your children in for preventive care that assists in protecting their oral health and growing smiles, something you absolutely don’t even want to think about is having to bring your kids in for serious restorative care after an athletic injury. Good news: You can help your kids avoid facial trauma with the very simple yet highly effective athletic mouthguard! Consider a custom one or pick up a universal option from the store. Whatever you choose, it is worth it!
#2: A Reusable Water Bottle
Are you doing your best to live a green lifestyle and, as a result, you’re careful with the way you pack your kiddos’ lunches? Perhaps you send a lunchbox or bag to school that your child brings home for you to re-pack. If you enjoy sending water to school, in part because by drinking it with lunch, this beverage helps keep your child’s oral health safe, you might not like sending water-filled juice boxes (they’re a real thing!) or plastic bottles. With just a bit of shopping, you will find that there are many safe, earth-friendly, refillable water bottles on the market, many small enough for your child’s daily lunch. Check it out!
#3: Electric Toothbrushes
This is obviously a matter of preference. However, if you tend to notice that your kids brush too hard much of the time, you worry they’re having trouble really creating enough strokes as they move throughout their mouths to avoid cavities, etc., then this may do the trick. It performs quite well and all your kiddo has to do is direct it over all surfaces!
