Fall is quickly approaching, which means you’re probably doing everything you can to get your child ready for school and transitioning from the “play all day” mentality to the “work all day” mentality. As you’re working on that, don’t forget about the smile. Your child also needs to be prepared for fall, and Dr. Amber N. Wright is happy to help you do just that.
First, solidify the oral hygiene routine. Our dental team understands that the summer months might have been difficult when it came to motivating your child to brush and floss, but now it’s time to get a proper routine down. Set an alarm every morning and night and make sure your child brushes and flosses. This will help them avoid forgetting about their smile when school starts.
Second, schedule an appointment for your child at our office. This six-month checkup will prepare the smile for fall because it will allow our dental team to deeply clean the mouth, strengthen the teeth, and take care of any dental issues if necessary. This will also reduce the chances of your child missing school because of oral health troubles.
Third, talk to Dr. Amber N. Wright about a mouthguard for your child if they play contact sports. This is a great time to get the mouthguard because fall is usually the season when sports start back up again. If your child wears a mouthguard this upcoming season, their smile will be protected.
