Once spring rolls around, it can often feel like you’re firing on all cylinders if you have children! One second, you’re enjoying a quiet, cozy winter. The next thing you know, the kids are out the door, riding their bikes, they’re signed up for spring sports, and you’re powering through the end of the school year in anticipation of summer vacation! While you may feel you barely have time to think, our Upton, MA team is here to ensure your kids are prepped with essential smile care, so you make it to summer in good shape!
Get Your Child An Athletic Mouthguard
This spring, particularly if your children are involved in any type of organized athletics or they are spending a lot more time outdoors with friends, doing something active like riding bikes, then it’s time for an athletic mouthguard. You may not realize that April is National Facial Protection Month! So, our insistence that protecting your smile from harm is a good idea isn’t just a random thought. This is actually a very serious issue that impacts everyone but for which we like to highlight children’s dental care. Remember, all preventive smile care is worth the effort and offers immense safeguarding.
Schedule A Visit If It’s Time!
You may feel like any time of year is a good time of year to schedule smile care for your kids. Of course, to some extent, this is true. However, we wish to remind you in regard to your kids’ care, just like we remind you for your own: Your children must visit us twice a year for checkups and cleanings if you wish to keep up with the details of comprehensive preventive care. So, for many who base their year on January through December, you’ll want to be certain you have completed the first of your two visits with us by the end of spring, so you’re caught up!
Get Those Sealants Going By Summer
Have you been thinking about dental sealants for your children but you haven’t actually come in to learn more yet? Maybe you know all about them but you have just been waiting for the right time to schedule a visit. Well. If we have anything to say about this very good choice to protect your kids’ oral health, we remind you that this form of smile care is something you might wish to complete within spring. That way, when summer vacation is in full swing, you can worry less about the summertime treats your kids are eating (and the impact they’re having on your kids’ teeth).
