Is Your Smile Ready For The School Year?
Hello and welcome to the Clearwater Dental Associates blog!
Where has the summer gone?! We hope that you have been enjoying the season and have found plenty of opportunities for smiling!
Now that we are well into August, though, the back to school routine is taking over the lives of families all over Florida. So, we know how crazy your days must be.
That’s why we are standing by to help you keep your mouth clean and your smile looking great all year long!
Keep reading to hear our preventive dentistry tips, and then be sure to get in touch with any questions or to schedule your back to school checkup in Clearwater.
Hygiene At Home
Parents must set the bar high for the rest of the family. Younger eyes will be looking to you and will pick up on your daily hygiene habits at like brushing, flossing, and rinsing with fluoride. You will want to brush at least twice a day for two minutes at a stretch–but never within 30 minutes of eating. Make sure you are flossing at least once a day. And make sure you read the label on the mouthwash for age-appropriateness.
It’s a pretty big deal overall because anything you can do in-between visits to our office will be the foundation upon which we will build your ongoing program of prevention.
But, rest assured, your efforts at home won’t ever be enough to keep you safe and healthy long-term. You will need the help of a professional team.
There really is a lot at stake. The health of your mouth can affect the health of your body, and the health of your body can affect the health of your mouth! That’s why you will want to find a dentist in Clearwater that you can trust to keep up with your ever-evolving needs.
Oral Exams & Teeth Cleanings
We are here to help you take it further than you can at home. Our teeth cleanings can help you ward off cavities and decay, and, trust us, they are much more enjoyable than ignoring your needs now and then having to get dental fillings, root canals, gum disease treatments, or extractions later.
Besides the usual stuff, we can add an extra layer of protection by setting you up with dental sealants and fluoride treatments. Through precise testing of your saliva, we can also identify harmful bacteria and indicators that something else might be happening in your body. We can even test for HPV, which is a virus that is connected with oral cancer.
We have all the tools, training, and technology to keep you on the good road!
