It may just seem like the last school year ended, but the new school year is just around the corner. Before classes begin, we encourage you to bring your kids to visit our family dentistry.
In addition to notebooks, pens, pencils, and other school supplies, we want your children to show up for that first day with healthy teeth.
At our family dentistry in San Diego, you and your loved ones can maintain your beautiful smiles or fix any issues you may be having before they become something bigger. Schedule your back to school dental checkup soon. Call (858) 762-9991 to plan your visit to the office of Brian Davey, DDS.
Stay Healthy, Keep Smiling
You want your family to be as healthy and as happy as possible. Having a healthy mouth can help with both of those things.
Keep your loved ones’ teeth in good shape takes a team effort. It starts at home by encouraging and practicing consistent daily oral care habits. Brushing twice daily (for two minutes each time) and flossing every day will go a long way toward reducing your risk of cavities and gum disease.
As a parent, you are likely aware that your kids don’t always do things in the same way you think they should be done. Even if they are brushing and flossing, they may not be as thorough as they could be. (In fairness, that’s true of many adults as well.)
For this reason, the American Dental Association also recommend routine dental cleanings and exams. At our practice, this is an essential part of our complete health dentistry.
During a professional cleaning, we get rid of any plaque or tartar buildup. As part of your exam, we will be watching for any signs of trouble. If we can take care of decay today, we would much rather do that then treat a toothache tomorrow.
Be Proactive To Prevent Problems
Brushing, flossing, and visiting the dentist for routine care are all excellent for your oral health. However, you add another level of protection against harmful bacteria.
Fluoride treatments can make your teeth stronger. Tooth decay is the result of demineralization of your teeth. Fluoride is a mineral. It can replace the mineral lost to decay and make your teeth more resistant to cavity-causing bacteria.
For an added layer of protection, you also can get dental sealants for your family. Sealants are an inexpensive but highly effective way to reduce your family’s risk of tooth decay. You can think of sealants as a protective barrier for your loved ones’ smiles.
Start The School Year Right
When classes begin again, you want your kids to be focusing on the learning. You don’t want a call from the school saying your son or daughter has been complaining about a sore or painful tooth.
We don’t want you to get that call either. It’s why we hope you will visit our family dentistry in San Diego soon. Today, call (858) 762-9991 or fill out our online form to request an appointment at Dr. Davey’s office.
