Hard to believe, but it’s almost that time of year again already. It seems like the summer just flew by, and soon school will be back in session! However, before that occurs, it’s important that certain things are done first..purchase school supplies, get new weather approproate clothing and ensure your dental health is where it should be.
Here are some important tips from a dental pro to keep in mind:
Don’t forget to include toothbrushes and toothpaste to your “back-to-school” supply list. I always recommend a soft bristle brush, and these should be replaced every 3-4 months. Brush at least twice a day for a minimum of two minutes each time and floss daily.
Doc’s tip: After brushing, spit but do not rinse. This allows the fluoride to stay on the teeth and repair the tooth surfaces.
If you were too busy trying to escape the heat this summer, take the time now to schedule an appointment for your kids. They should generally see their dentist for a check-up twice a year. A thorough exam and professional cleaning will ensure they maintain their healthy smile.
Doc’s tip: Ask your dentist about fluoride and dental sealants. These provide added protection against tooth decay.’ (source: azcentral.com)
