More Back To School Tips? But Of Course!

Yes, we know that just a quick reminder about back to school isn’t really going to cut it. You need some serious reinforcement and you need it now! Beyond getting fillings completed and checkups and cleanings on the books, you might wonder what to do at home now that it’s not just a fun free-for-all all the time. An actual schedule and some amount of structure must be put back into place to ensure everyone’s smiles are on track, brushed, flossed, healthy, ready for school, ready for bed, and more every day. Phew! Lucky for you, our Dallas, TX team just happens to really love helping out with these oral health details!

Graduate To The Next Grade Level With An Electric Toothbrush

Just like you hope your kids bring home beaming report cards this year, you’d also like for them to maintain gleaming, cavity-free smiles. Now that they are transitioning into the next grade level, you might want to infuse the moment with a bit of seriousness in the way of oral health by having your child “graduate” to the next level of dental hygiene! Hand over a more grown-up method of smile cleansing by giving your child an electric toothbrush. This can actually offer exceptional oral health benefits as it offers gentle but powerful cleaning. Feeling excited about a new school year and a special brush is a nice combo.

Incorporate Dental Hygiene Shopping With Food Shopping

Your kiddos might know you get a bit frustrated when they overdo it on the sugar but they might not connect the dots with quite as much clarity as you do. Why not consider bringing your kids along as you shop for dental hygiene items and school lunch food? You can explain the way that bacteria eat the foods your kids eat, releasing acids, and explain that bacteria love sugars and carbs (but aren’t so interested in other things like protein and dairy). Explain that water helps keep smiles clean. As you work your way through the store, discuss some smart things to buy for oral health, what to do after indulging in treats, and then finish up at the dental hygiene aisle. It will make for a wonderful real-life-application learning experience.
