Summer break is a great time to tackle those poor, neglected items at the bottom of your to-do list, the ones you’ve been putting off during the rush of school days. You may have already crossed a number of items off by now, but there’s still one important matter to attend to: a regular dental checkup and cleaning. Preventive care is a crucial aspect of maintaining great oral health, and checkups should be a part of that. So grab your calendar, and give us a call. Take advantage of the long days, and schedule cleanings for the whole family.
Why You Should Schedule that Regular Checkup
Even if you and your kids take great care of your teeth at home, that doesn’t mean it’s okay to skip out on professional cleanings. That’s because brushing and flossing can still leave behind tartar buildup, which over time can irritate the gums and even lead to infection. This buildup is the main cause of gum disease, which worsens with time. If caught early, though, we can help to reverse the side effects of gingivitis, the first stage of gum disease, by removing the buildup and helping to restore health.
Checkups also help us to monitor your family’s oral health, to make sure there are no cavities or other causes for concern. We also offer fluoride treatments and sealants to help further protect your kids’ teeth. At Keelan Dental we specialize in pediatric care, so we can help keep your kids teeth healthy, while also educating them about the importance of oral hygiene. This can make your job as a parent just a bit easier, by helping them understand why brushing and flossing are so important to the health of their smile.
