  • How to Keep Your Child's Teeth Healthy This Summer

Summer can be a fun time for your child, but it can be a difficult time on their teeth for a number of different reasons. However, if you’re cognizant of the risks and make a dedicated plan to protect your child’s teeth, we’re confident that their teeth will make it through the summer no worse for the wear. Below, we outline some of the ways summer can challenge their teeth and what you can do to prevent problems.

Summer and Your Child’s Teeth

Here’s a look at how you can keep your child’s teeth healthy over the summer months:

  • Stick to a Routine: With school out for the summer and longer daylight hours, it's important to maintain a regular schedule involving brushing teeth before bedtime. Reinforce the habit of oral hygiene even during non-routine times like camping or sleepovers.

  • Stop the Sugary Sodas and Sweets: Limit the intake of sugary treats and beverages. Encourage healthier snack options like fruits or veggies. Make water their primary beverage to avoid overloading teeth with sugar.

  • Schedule Your Back To School Dental Appointment Early: Book a dental appointment for your child in August or September. Consider getting on the cancellation list for earlier appointments if your schedule allows.

By following these tips, your child can maintain strong teeth throughout the summer and into the next school year. To schedule an appointment or if you have questions, call us today at (952) 888-2300.
