Back To School Dental Care

Back To School Dental Care
Posted on 10/19/2016

Fall has begun and that means a new school year is underway. As the homework and autumn leaves pile up, it’s important not to let your kids’ dental care and oral hygiene slip. As your Galesburg area pediatric dentist, Dr. Hanna has put together some tips so our younger patients can maintain their dental health as school gears up.


Tips From Your Kalamazoo Pediatric Dentist

  • Bring A Healthy Lunch: Lunch choices comprise a big part of maintaining optimal dental health. Healthy and easy lunches include: vegetables, yogurt, peanut butter and jelly sandwiches, pasta, salads, and soups. Also, cut back on sugary foods and soft drinks - water is always the best option to avoid potential tooth decay.

  • Always Brush: Brushing regularly and flossing are a big part of maintaining excellent dental health. Be sure to change toothbrushes (or toothbrush heads) every few months to always be brushing with effective bristles.

  • Prepare for the School Day: You may want to consider packing a toothbrush and toothpaste for your child, so that they can have the option of brushing throughout the day.

  • Make Time For Dental Visits: Younger teeth are either constantly growing, falling out, or moving, so make sure to continue scheduling regular visits to your Galesburg area pediatric dentist.
