Smile Care: Getting Ready For The 2018-2019 School Year!

While the temperatures appear to continue rising in Southlake, TX, making it seem as though we’re experiencing an endless summer, there truly is going to be an end. This is quite apparent when it comes to the fact that the 2018-2019 school year that was inching its way toward us now seems to be barreling into view! Since you’re about to be up to your elbows in tasks to get the kids ready for back-to-the-classroom time, we like to remind you that you’ll want to utilize the days left for some smile care, too. Not sure how to begin, what you should be doing for your children, or how to ensure your needs are on the list, too? We’ve got it all lined out for you!

For Your Grade School Kids

For your K-12 kiddos, getting ready for the new school year is something that you can do very easily, provided you get started ASAP. First, remember that everyone needs their prevention every year, twice a year. So, if it’s time for a checkup and cleaning (or if it’s almost time), let’s get it taken care of this summer to make everyone’s life easy! Also remember that any restorative smile care needs that you haven’t addressed yet should be addressed very soon! Nobody wants to sit in class with an uncomfortable tooth, after all. As for the younger kids, don’t forget about sealants and fluoride before school starts up. This offers so much protection (and you won’t have to worry so much about what your little one is eating during the school day).

For Parents!

Don’t forget about your own smile needs! If dealing with your smile care is easier when the kids are out of school, then remember to set up your dental checkup and cleaning (and any other care you require) when you schedule the visits for your kiddos. If it’s much easier for you to come in when your kids are in class, then plan for one of those days. Just remember that the whole family needs prevention. You can keep everyone in the cavity-free club with just a little bit of effort in the planning department!
