While you are enjoying barbecues, summer camps, and everything else on your summer agenda, back to school could be a distant thought. However, school and hectic schedules will be back before you know it.
Whether your child is starting their first day of kindergarten or going off to college, mid-summer is a perfect time to schedule your child’s dental visit. At Roman Dental Arts, we can address any issues before school starts to avoid your child missing any classes. Now is a good time to re-evaluate dental habits that might have been neglected.
For college students, you are at the age where wisdom teeth begin to come in. Doctor Roman can evaluate your wisdom teeth and discuss whether they should be removed. A dental exam before you head back to school can help prevent problems from impacted wisdom teeth.
A toothache or chronic dental problem can lead to trouble in eating, speaking, and concentrating. Children with dental pain may not always express their problems. They may appear anxious, depressed, or tired, which could be misunderstood by a teacher. Dental problems can also cause children to miss school.
Dr. Donald Roman and Dr. Alissa Roman focus on Family Dentistry and the unique needs of children of all ages, teenagers, and adults. The staff at Roman Dental Arts are dedicated to providing personalized and compassionate care for all their patients.
To prevent dental issues and to help you save money, a back-to-school checkup can uncover problems that can be treated early when damage is minimal.
Cleanings, fluoride treatment, and dental sealants provide “smile” insurance. In fact, according to the American Dental Association, dental sealants on permanent molars reduces the risk of cavities by 80%. Ask Dr. Roman if recommended for your child.
If your child plays school sports, this is a good time to check his or her mouthguard. Dr. Roman can check their mouthguard for any excessive wear and tear. Perhaps your child has had a growth spurt or any changes in their teeth, they might need a new mouthguard.
Give yourself enough time. Don’t get caught in the back-to-school rush. Send your child back to school with not just a new backpack but a picture-perfect, healthy smile as well.
