Back to School Dental Tips

It’s hard to believe, but Summer 2018 is almost half over! Get your kids and the entire family ready for back to school with these back to school dental tips, from the pros at the Legend Dental Centre!

Set Up A Brushing Schedule

Once the kids go back to school, it’s easy to set up a brushing schedule – we recommend brushing twice a day to keep teeth healthy, and since kids are away during the day, setting a time every morning and evening to brush their teeth will keep them healthy and their smiles bright!

Floss Your Teeth Every Day

It’s great to clean your pearly whites by brushing every day, but don’t forget to floss them too! Flossing can take practice, but it’s one of the most important parts of keeping up strong oral health. Your children’s gums may bleed or become a bit sore when they first start to floss each day, but this will eventually go away as they get used to the process. Flossing in the evening is recommended to prevent kids from having to go off to school with a sore mouth!

Pack Healthy Food and Drink

It would be great if everyone in the family could brush their teeth after lunch at school or work, but for most people this isn’t possible, so be sure to pack a healthy lunch and drinks! Sugary drinks and snacks can eat away at your teeth over time, so leave your snacks at home for when you’re near a tooth brush and can clean them off fast, and pack a water bottle instead of a soda or pop to provide everyone a healthy drink alternative.

Visit The Dentist Regularly

Most important of all, don’t forget to set regular appointments at your dentists’ office! Regular check ups and cleanings with the expert dentists at the Legend Dental Centre will keep the whole family’s smile bright and healthy all year long!
