4 Reasons To Schedule a Back-To-School Dental Checkup

Back to School Dental AppointmentWe know that your back-to-school to-do list is full of things you need to do to prepare your child for a new school year. However, it’s also important to schedule a dental checkup for your child before his or her schedule is filled up with sports, homework, and other school year activities.

Back-To-School Dental Checkup

Below are 4 reasons why you should consider scheduling a dental appointment for your child before he or she goes back to school:

  1. Cut down on missed school days – Each year around 51 million school hours are missed because of dental problems. In fact, the number one childhood illness is tooth decay and dental cavities! Receiving a checkup before school begins can decrease the odds that your child will develop a dental problem and need to miss out on valuable school days.
  2. Improve at-home dental hygiene – Kids are often more enthusiastic about their at-home dental hygiene routine after hearing that they’re cavity-free! It’s validation that all their hard work is paying off.
  3. Catch potential problems early on – When you schedule a dental cleaning and exam for your child, it allows Dr. Michael Plous to check his or her teeth for any newly developing problems. If caught early on, it can prevent your child from missing school, and the treatment is often less costly.
  4. Improve your child’s overall health – If left untreated, childhood dental cavities and tooth decay can have a negative effect on your child’s overall health. For example, severe cases of tooth decay can even lead to bacterial infections and malnourishment. Avoid these issues by making regular dental appointments for your children.

It’s important to us that your child returns to school with a clean, healthy smile! To schedule an appointment at our Aurora, CO family dental office, please contact SpringRock Dental today.
