Back to School with a Smile

August 20, 2014

It’s almost that time of year again! Back to school! Send your child back with a smile by visiting the dentist.

When children are young, there are many changes happening with their teeth with losing baby teeth and growing permanent teeth. It’s a time when tooth decay is common. Left untreated, tooth decay can cause a child problems with eating, speaking, sleeping, and learning, so it’s important to prevent.

Tooth decay is entirely preventable and getting a dental checkup before children head back to school is a vital part of preventing it.

Children need confidence too! A healthy and happy smile is one way to give them the confidence they need to be successful in class.

Another thing to consider when you’re getting back in the swing of things is the importance of your children eating healthy lunches and snacks. Include portable healthy lunch items and snacks in your child’s lunch, including cheese, raw vegetables, yogurt or fruit. If your child eats in the school cafeteria, make sure to review healthy, balanced food choices with them before the first day of school. Nutrition programs at early learning centres like Childventures, let you breathe easy about your child’s nutrition. Your children’s teeth will definitely thank you for keeping sugary snacks and food at a minimum.
