Back to School Dental Exams in Chicago, IL
Before your child goes back to school, it’s a great idea to schedule a dental appointment with their pediatric dentist to ensure they’re keeping their teeth and gums healthy. Most schools in the Chicago area require your child to get a dental exam before going back to school in the fall. Even if your child’s school doesn’t require an appointment, it’s important for their overall health to see their dentist regularly.
Summer is the perfect opportunity to bring your child to the dentist while they don’t need to be taken out of school, and there’s normally a lot more sugary treats and junk food eaten during the summertime. A dental exam will help make sure they’re brushing and flossing correctly to maintain both their overall and oral health. Your pediatric dentist will be able to see any potential issues before they become an emergency trip to the dentist saving your wallet and your child’s mouth a lot of trouble.
During a back to school dental exam, your pediatric dentist will be able to make sure your child’s teeth and gums are looking good and healthy for the long-term. Some of the common things that are checked out are bite alignment, making sure that their teeth are coming in as they should, and look at their gum health. This checkup will ensure they have a healthy smile into adulthood.
Even if your child brushes and flosses on a regular basis, a back to school appointment will help get off any tartar and bacteria they wouldn’t be able to even with the best brushing. Only your child’s dentist will be able to get their teeth their cleanest.
