Set a Good Oral Health Example for Your Child This New Year

A message from Best Dentist News and KidSmiles Pediatric Dentistry

2015 is right around the corner. This time of year, people from all over the world come together to make New Year’s Resolutions. Most resolutions include some sort of self-improvement – eating better, exercising more, etc. But – what about a resolution for your family’s oral health?

This year, KidSmiles Pediatric Dentistry of Whittier encourages you to make a family resolution – one that is super easy to keep AND extremely rewarding as well. Ready?

Biannual Dental Checkups For The Entire Family!

Every year, millions of people avoid going to the dentist. That means that millions of people may not be giving their smiles and bodies the care they need to remain strong and healthy.

Biannual checkups and cleanings are critical components of any family oral hygiene regimen. They present your family with the perfect opportunity to ask your dentist at any questions you may have about your teeth and gums. These simple visits also include a thorough exam and cleaning, two things your family’s teeth need to stay healthy for life.

Why Every 6-Months?

Unfortunately, many families haven’t noticed any problems that warrant a dental visit, so they think it’s acceptable to skip out on their routine checkups. However, families need to be aware that not every oral health concern presents itself with noticeable symptoms.

The early stages of gum disease, for example, may be virtually undetectable. Small cavities – particularly those that form between the teeth – may be difficult to see or feel until they have progressed to a more advanced stage of decay. Even a root canal infection may slip under your radar without the practiced eyes of a dentist to spot the signs.

How long has it been since you or your child saw a dentist for a regular visit?

If it’s been more than six months, call your dentist and your local KidSmiles Pediatric Dentistry of Whittier office today to make an appointment. During your and your child’s visit, your dentist can talk to you both about brushing and flossing and can offer helpful advice your entire family can use on a daily basis.

Break The Cycle!

This New Year, treat your smile well with routine preventive visits at your local dental office and at KidSmiles Pediatric Dentistry of Whittier. Remember – resolving to have your family visit your dentist twice a year and pay extra attention to your brushing and flossing isn’t only about improving your family’s smile—it’s about keeping your whole body healthy. That’s a resolution any family can get behind!

Happy New Year From KidSmiles Pediatric Dentistry of Whittier!
