Time sure does fly—before you know it, your son or daughter will be starting up their next year of school. As COVID-19 remains a concern, your child’s school year may not be exactly the same. However, it’s still important that your little one receives their regular checkup and cleaning before the year starts! You probably have lots on your to-do list already, but here are 5 significant reasons why you should book your child an appointment with your Syracuse dentist before school begins.
Your Child + a Healthy Mouth = Better Grades
A checkup and cleaning before school starts will mean that they won’t need to miss class for clean teeth. Additionally, these visits prevent and detect dental issues like cavities and infection before they get more severe. Studies show that dental pain and discomfort, which goes unchecked without a dental visit, distracts children from their teachers and the entire learning experience. Plus, dental issues can affect your child’s speech and ability to socialize.
Fresh Breath & Fluoride
One significant part of your child’s routine appointments is fluoride treatment. This naturally occurring mineral fights cavities, strengthens enamel, and it helps keep your son or daughter’s smile fresh! That’s why it’s a great step to take before a schoolyear full of snacking!
Reinforce Great Dental Habits
When is a better time than now to reinforce some healthy dental hygiene habits? During your little one’s dental visit, your children’s dentist in Syracuse will give a quick refresher course on the best dental techniques. That way, your kid can brush and floss like a pro. Creating positive dental habits now also makes it more likely that your son or daughter will take care of their teeth on their own when they are older.
The Tonsil Check
Dental checkups are a great time for your dentist to check the health of your child’s tonsils. Enlarged or enflamed tonsils can often affect your loved one’s overall health, making it difficult to sleep and concentrate. This can be especially detrimental during school, which is another reason why a simple routine checkup gets your child ready for the upcoming year.
If you’re busy now, you know your schedule will only continue to fill once the school year is underway. Check one box off of your list and schedule your son or daughter’s dental appointment. They will not only avoid missing school, but you won’t have to shift your schedule around to coordinate your dental visits during the school year.
