Five questions to ask yourself

1 Comment

Well, it’s that time of year again, summer is waning and it’s back to school season! Healthy teeth and gums can make the school year easier – so ask yourself these questions:

  1. What does your morning routine look like? Make sure that brushing and FLOSSING is part of it, and don’t believe everything you hear – flossing is important.
  2. Does your son or daughter participate in a sport? If yes, be sure to protect their teeth with a mouth guard. We will make and provide FREE sporback to school teeth brushingts guards for any children that are currently patients, just ask!
  3. Could your toothbrush use an upgrade? Think about investing in an electric toothbrush. Some stores run specials on these types of items in the fall. We recommend SONICARE or ORAL B.
  4. What’s in the lunch bag? Stick with healthy snacks – carrot sticks, yogurt, nuts, and cheese. Also, avoid foods that easily get stuck in the grooves of your teeth. Food that is washed away easily by saliva causes less decay.
  5. When was your last dental visit? Always make time during the school year for regular visits to the dentist. We are happy to provide an excuse slip for work or school.

 

One thought on “Five questions to ask yourself

  1. I’m really glad that one of the first things you mentioned is to make sure that brushing and flossing are part of one’s morning routine. In my opinion, I think it’s especially important to start flossing at a young age. I think it’s a good way to get into the habit of flossing and brushing as soon as possible, especially since it’s a good preventative measure. Definitely seems like it will save a lot of time and money later on in life.
