It’s Time for Those Back-to-School Dental Cleanings

Featured Image

A back-to-school dental cleaning can help your child enjoy a healthy, sparkling smile throughout the year. Additionally, proper dental habits established in childhood are much more likely to be continued into adulthood. And children that gain a positive attitude toward dental care are more vigilant in pursuing regular check-ups and cleanings as they grow older.

Our dedicated dental experts would love to set your child on the road to a brighter dental future. So, contact us at ByersStation Dental today! We also invite those in the Chester Springs, Byers, Ludwigs Corner, Eagle, Lionville, and Exton areas to visit our practice in Chester Springs, PA.

Why you should schedule a back-to-school cleaning

Even if your child’s teeth appear healthy, bacteria could be hiding within the tough-to-reach nooks and crannies. This bacteria stealthily attack the teeth, causing dental decay that may go unnoticed until more severe problems occur.

When left to their own devices, the bacteria turn into a sticky coating of plaque and then tartar, or calcified plaque. The resultant irritation and inflammation spreads throughout the mouth and can eventually damage the teeth, gums, and supporting structures.

Children are also likely to consume sugary foods, sodas, and other sweetened, possibly acidic beverages that accelerate decay. And with all the social and academic excitement of a new school year, they may not always maintain their brushing and flossing habits.

Therefore, it’s no surprise that cavities are the most prevalent chronic childhood disease. And the problems associated with cavities and tooth decay cause more than 50 million missed school hours each year.

But a back-to-school cleaning will improve your child’s physical health and academic outlook, boosting their attendance, engagement, and helping them remain focused on learning.

What your child can expect

Our expert dental team will carefully clear plaque and tartar from your child’s teeth. Then, she’ll apply a fluoride treatment to strengthen the teeth and polish the enamel for a dazzling shine.

Our team will also check the growth of your child’s teeth so you can rest easy knowing that their dental development is progressing as it should. And, if any corrective procedures are necessary, it will be much easier and more effective to perform them early – and prevent discomfort, chewing difficulties, or speech problems that may otherwise develop in the future.

Additionally, we’ll demonstrate brushing and flossing techniques and create a personalized, at-home care routine to ensure prolonged dental health and happiness.
