Summer vacation is the most fun time of year for most kids – and for good reason! Maybe all the video gaming, staying up late, snacking on junk food, and hanging with friends has something to do with it. Not to be neglected, however, are some other faithful friends you desperately need long after the sun-soaked days of summer are over. Who are they? Your teeth, of course!
Don’t Let the Summer Fun Affect your Child’s Teeth
Enjoying camping trips and toasting marshmallows with friends is what summer vacation is all about, right? But crawling into a sleeping bag without the usual teeth brushing and flossing can take its toll on your children’s teeth over time.
The new school year is like a clean slate just waiting to be filled with good memories, as it offers plenty of opportunities for growth and adventure. We want to remind you of the importance of healthy teeth by booking your professional teeth cleaning and checkup for your children — before the rush of the new school year is upon us.
Healthy teeth do so much more than provide your child with an opportunity to show off their smile for their school photo. They enable your child to be more confident, allow for easier social development, and help to promote good health. That’s a much more appealing alternative than being self-conscious about their grin, coping with the discomfort of cavities, and missing days of school from pain and infection associated with tooth decay.
The good news is …
Tooth decay and other oral health issues experienced by children are by and large preventable. It all starts with proper brushing and flossing at home and continues with regular visits to the dentist. That’s where Dr. Pyle comes in! Dr. Pyle is on a mission to constantly look for “new and improved” ways to provide the utmost care for your child, all while maximizing their comfort. Check out these patient testimonials to learn just how much he’s changes people’s lives.
