Our Weston Dental Practice Offers a Reminder About the Importance of Back to School Check-ups
According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention 19% of kids age 3-to-12 have undiagnosed tooth decay. That’s one of the many reasons it’s important to take care of any dental issues early in the school year and avoid the an emergency dental appointments during school.
Pediatric dentistry has changed a lot since you were a kid. Today’s technology and advanced dental techniques provide a far more comfortable experience for children. The advancements in preventive care have also made cavities more rare. That being said a dental visit can still be a stressful experience for your child. We make your child’s back-to-school check as comfortable as possible. Here are a few more reason you need to schedule a back-to-school appointment:
- If your child is going to participate in any contact sports, this is the time to have them fitted with a custom sports guard. A sports guard will protect their gums and the permanent teeth that have arrived.
- Young children will benefit with time spent with Dr. Pyle and his staff learning them about a good oral health routine.
- Your kids should get used to a back-to-school dental exam at an early age so that it becomes an annual routine.
- We use digital x-rays, advanced sealants, Carifree cavity prevention and provide orthodontic evaluations to make sure the appointment helps keep you childs teeth and gums healthily throughout the school year.
