The fall season is a busy time, especially because school is about to start and the holidays are right around the corner. This means you probably have many chores to complete before fall officially arrives. As you do these things, don’t forget about your child’s smile and oral health. There are things you can do to help them have a smile that is prepared for the fall, and Dr. Napieralski, Dr. Wisniewski, and Dr. Shayota are happy to tell you about them.
The first thing you can do is help your child stay on top of their oral hygiene routine. Make sure your child brushes their teeth every morning when they wake up and brush and floss at night before they go to bed. Helping them get into a routine will help them remember to care for their smile when school starts. If necessary, you can set an alarm informing your child to clean their teeth and gums.
The second thing you can do is schedule an appointment at Chelsea Family Dentistry for your child if they are due for their six-month checkups. This appointment is important because it can prepare their smile for the upcoming school year. During this visit, our dental team will deeply clean your child’s smile, nourish the teeth, and treat any dental issues if necessary. This will also help your child avoid dental issues, which can help them avoid missing school.
The third thing you can do is talk to our dentists about a mouthguard. If your child plays high-contact sports, this mouthguard can protect their smile while they are active. This is a great time to get the mouthguard because fall is the typical time for sports to begin again. So, make sure your child has the mouthguard before their first day of tryouts or practice.
