Back to school time is the perfect time to focus on helping kids make healthy, oral hygiene choices.
Now that school is back in session, it is a great time to think about health and establishing good habits for the school year. This includes getting back into a good oral hygiene routine. Teaching children to brush and floss each day before they go to school and to brush and floss before bed is a great habit to teach. This will help them establish and keep an oral hygiene regime as they grow older.
Also, back to school is a great time to think about scheduling an appointment for a check-up. Summertime is busy and full of many fun-filled activities. With school back in session and fall beginning, it’s a great time to come in and make sure your children’s teeth are still healthy after all of those summer treats.
We provide a kid-friendly, dentist office.
At Hines Little Smiles, we can provide check-ups, x-rays, fillings, and much more to children of all ages. It’s also a good idea to think about diet and how what your child eats can impact their oral hygiene. Making sure to pack healthy lunches with foods like carrots and not too many sweets can impact their oral health for the better. Thinking about packing lunches ahead of time as opposed to throwing together snacks last minute can lead to a better diet that has positive impacts on oral hygiene.
