Your Back to School Dental Checklist

Whether we’d like to believe it or not, the summer is winding down and the school year is right around the corner. It’s an important time to get new clothes and school supplies, but it’s also a great time to focus on your child’s dental health. 

 

To ensure your child’s smile is shining bright this fall, follow this easy back-to-school checklist from your dentist in Mundelein.

 

Schedule dental check-up appointments.

We recommend visiting your dentist in Mundelein twice a year for regular check-ups and cleanings. Get your appointments out of the way before the busy school year begins.

 

Create healthy oral hygiene routines.

There’s plenty to focus on during the school year, but your child’s daily brushing and flossing routines should not be abandoned, especially when they may be having sweets at school! 

 

Buy oral-friendly snacks and lunches.

Some great ideas for snacks that are good for your child’s teeth and overall health include fruit, cheese, vegetables, and unsweetened applesauce. Try to avoid packing sugary soda or juices, and opt for a reusable water bottle instead of a plastic one.

 

Purchase a mouthguard for your child’s sports activities.

One of the most common reasons for tooth injuries is playing sports, especially high-contact sports such as soccer or basketball. A mouthguard is a great option for preventing dental injuries.

 

Replace your child’s toothbrush.

If your child’s toothbrush has frayed bristles, or if it’s been more than three to four months since it has been replaced, it is time to buy a new one. The new school year is a great time to start fresh, including a fresh new toothbrush! 

 

Good luck with the school year ahead! Feel free to reach out to your dentist in Mundelein today with any questions, or to schedule your next appointment.
