There’s quite the popular phrase you hear around this time of year: “Back To School!” Whether you are a parent or child and this throws you into sadness or gladness, it’s a reality that can’t be avoided. So many things to think about as our kids go back to school like school supplies, backpacks, clothes, and important papers. One important thing to consider in this time of new beginnings and routine, are you making their oral health a priority in the midst of everything else? They are too tired at night to brush their teeth, they are running late in the morning, no time to floss or brush, sound all too familiar? As we schedule their bed time, wake up time, homework time and after school activities, add taking care of their teeth as one of their top priorities. Just like your child’s school gives you a checklist for back to school, here’s your checklist for their oral health and why it’s so important.
Nothing is more frustrating than hearing that one of your kids has a cavity. The pain for them, the money for you, and a whole heap of guilt aren’t on anyone’s “to do list” for the week! We want the best for our children and we want them to be as healthy as possible, and that includes their oral health. What can we do to help their mouths thrive and bring good news on dental visits? Here’s a comprehensive checklist for parents, and back to school time is the perfect time to get everyone on track!
As you go shopping for your back to school supplies and you start to implement your back to school routine, this is a great time to solidify your child’s oral hygiene routine and the importance it has on their health. Their overall physical health and mental health is always one of your most important concerns. Including brushing and flossing their teeth as a priority in their daily routine will help them to grow and flourish with a healthy smile, setting them in motion for a very bright future!
