Booking Pediatric Visits In The Summer

The summer months can be a great time to enjoy a vacation, or a time to explore your own surroundings with the family. Because it is a time when you no longer have to worry about your kids missing school, it can also be ideal for pediatric dental exams! Our Rochester, MN dentist’s office provides oral health support to patients of all ages. That means we can help everyone in a household take great care of their teeth and gums. If your children are due for their next appointments, or if you have a baby who is ready for their first dental appointment, we are here to help. In addition to seeing them, we are also happy to see you and provide important preventive services.

Summer Can Be A Great Time For Pediatric Dental Visits

Because kids are not trying to follow their regular class schedules during the summer, it can be easier to bring them in for a dental checkup. Unless your dentist informs you that your children need to follow something different, they should go in for pediatric checkups every six months. Semiannual appointments provide consistent feedback for them, as well as more opportunities to learn about the importance of oral hygiene.

Why Kids Should See Their Dentist Regularly

While kids and adults face many of the same oral health threats, it is important to acknowledge that there are other concerns that need to be addressed during their visits. One is that, simply put, kids have less experience with dental care, and need more guidance when it comes to learning how to care for their teeth. During appointments, your dentist can give them guidance about how to care for their teeth and avoid problems with decay. We can also provide sealants and fluoride treatments to make them more resistant to decay.

Our Practice Is Ready To Provide Checkups For Parents, Too!

You may be more confident in your approach to smile care than your kids, but that does not mean you have no need to see your dentist for routine preventive care! At these appointments, we can provide cleanings and evaluations to make sure there are not any problems with your smile that we need to address. We can also perform cleanings that remove plaque and tartar to stop future problems from happening.
