Who doesn’t love summer? But all those sweet foods and drinks can take a toll on your teeth, while summer sports increase the risk of dental injuries. Luckily, summer is the perfect time to get ahead with your family’s dental treatments.
Looking After Your Child’s Teeth
Once your child receives their first tooth, book a dental check-up. Your child should have a full dental exam by age 2 or 3. As they grow up, we will carefully monitor the development of their teeth and jaws. If needed, a child can have an early orthodontic evaluation by age 6 or 7 because sometimes problems can be corrected with minimally invasive treatment before they reach their teens. Lastly, if your child loves to play sports, it’s worth considering a custom mouthguard to protect their smile.
Looking After Adult Teeth
Tooth sensitivity to sweet, cold or sour foods and drinks is a common problem which can indicate gum recession, acid erosion or tooth decay, or tooth fractures. A dental check-up identifies and addresses the cause. The summer is also the perfect time to beautify your smile. We offer affordable, custom whitening kits for you to brighten your teeth in the privacy of your own home. Have you always wanted a straighter smile?
