We know that when summertime rolls around, you are thinking of family vacations, gardening, and enjoying the beautiful weather Madera has to offer this time of year. It is also a great time for the entire family to get caught up on their dental exams and professional cleanings.
When the kids are in school, it can be tough to schedule all of their necessary appointments and still get them to sports practice and all of their school activities, too. So why not use this time to get everyone caught up on their cleanings, exams, and x-rays? Keeping a regular professional cleaning and exam routine can help you avoid some of the most common dental conditions such as gum disease and decay.
Did you know that in its early stages, we can reverse gum disease with the proper treatment? You might think kids are immune to periodontal disease, but they are not. Despite the change in their summer schedule, it is important for them to maintain their home care routine of brushing and flossing.
Don't Forget Your Preventative Appointments!
You can’t be around at all times to monitor any sugary snacks of drinks that your kids might enjoy over the summer, but a professional cleaning could help prevent dental decay from taking over your child’s mouth. No matter how diligent your child’s home care is, using a toothbrush and floss alone cannot remove all of the plaque and bacteria in their mouths. A professional cleaning will reach areas below their gumline and in the back where they can’t reach.
Preventative appointments are important for adults, too. We can help you find a time that fits into your vacation and work schedule so you can have the care you need, as well.
If you schedule now for a six-month re-care appointment, the next visit will fall right around winter vacation, so you can limit missed time at school and additional running around for appointments. We will do our best to accommodate your family and make scheduling your preventative dental care easy. Contact us today!
