As the new school year is almost starting, kids and teenagers will be preparing themselves for an eventful time. But, going back to school may also mean they will be snacking more and exposing their teeth to tooth decay and other oral health complications.
For parents, monitoring their children’s oral health during a busy school schedule can be a tough task. That’s why Dr. Ghasem K. Darian at Winning Smiles Dentistry in Phoenix and Glendale, Arizona recommends back-to-school dental cleanings.
In a single visit, Dr. Darian can assess your child’s oral health, get rid of excess plaque and tartar, and give your kids a clean bill of health.
In this article, we’re taking a look at why back-to-school cleanings are necessary and recommended:
The year 2020 was plagued by a pandemic that forced millions of children to learn from home instead of going to school. Being confined at home also led to an increase of excessive and unhealthy snacking among children of all ages.
Getting a dental cleaning will help them reverse any potential decay or damage their teeth may have suffered. On top of this, Dr. Darian can also rule out any potential oral concerns that parents may or may not have noticed.
Children develop long-lasting friendships at school. Giving them the confidence of a bright smile can help them make strong first impressions and potentially allow them to make friends more easily.
Most oral health concerns start at a very young age. For instance, tooth decay, gum disease, alignment, and bite-related issues all surface during teen and pre-teen years.
A back-to-school cleanup allows Dr. Darian to administer preventative care procedures, if necessary. This will ensure your kids have a relaxed year of fun and learning at school without any dental issues.
