Back To School Dental Cleaning & Exam

Back To School Dental ExamsIt’s August again, which means it’s time to visit your local dentist for a back-to-school dental appointment! We know that once school begins, your schedule will start to fill with classes, sports, or extracurricular activities.

Why Back-To-School Checkups Are Important

Below are just a few of the many reasons you should consider making a dental appointment for your kids before school starts:

  • School Absences – Almost 52 million hours of school are lost every single year due to dental problems and their treatments. These valuable school hours are important to your child’s education and they shouldn’t be spent in the dental chair. Make sure your kids aren’t one of these statistics, and schedule a dental cleaning and exam.
  • Early Detection – With every dental cleaning comes a comprehensive dental exam. These exams allow your dentist to catch any potential dental problems early on, when the treatment is simpler and more cost effective.
  • Overall Health – Your child’s overall health can be adversely affected by dental problems. If left untreated, dental cavities and tooth decay can lead to a tooth infection or gum disease. Additionally, these dental problems can even result in malnutrition.

Here at Lockett Orthodontics, your child’s smile and his or her confidence in that smile are very important to us. Help your child start the school year off right, and make an appointment with your local dentist for a cleaning and exam. If you need further assistance with braces, or teeth alignment please contact our orthodontist in Colorado Springs, CO.
