Using The Holiday Break To Bring The Kids In For Dental Care

Holiday breaks give children precious time away from school, and their usual obligations. While this is certainly a time for family and holiday activities, it can also be a convenient time to handle important matters. For instance, the break can be an ideal time to schedule routine dental care for your child. Pediatric dental visits keep you updated about the condition of a child’s smile. When held around Christmas, an appointment can alert you to any problems resulting from so many holiday treats. Your Rochester, MN dentist’s office encourages families to take advantage of preventive dental care. Our practice can work with patients of all ages, so you can look forward to quality care that helps everyone maintain their best, healthiest smiles!

Professional Dental Checkups Are Important For Developing Smiles

Children can be tempted by sweets, and less successful with their brushing and flossing efforts. Pediatric checkups can actually help them understand the value of proper smile care. In addition to monitoring their oral health, your dentist can serve as a sort of smile mentor, instructing them on proper care at home, and helping them understand why sugar is a problem for their teeth.

From your child’s first visit with the dentist through their teen years, your dentist can monitor the growth and development of their oral structures. This means you can receive early warnings about developmental issues, like poor dental alignment, and learn how these problems can be addressed.

Regular Dental Exams Are Important For Patients Of All Ages

How can you convince your kids that their oral health is truly important? Modeling good habits can be key. You should also see your dentist for regular dental care. These checkups do more than just help you set a good example. You can also be warned of problems like tooth decay and gum disease, and receive preventive care that can help you maintain a better smile over the years.
