Questions to Ask at a Back-to-School Dental Visit
Some schools require a back-to-school dental visit, but even if yours doesn’t, right before school starts is a good time to schedule one of your child’s regular checkups. Millcreek Family Dental can take care of any problems so your child won’t have to miss class after school starts, and if oral hygiene routines got a little lax over the summer, Millcreek Family Dental can help get kids back on track.
Here are a few questions to ask at your child’s appointment:
- How is my child’s overall dental health?
- Will my child get a cleaning today?
- Does my child need an x-ray?
- Do you recommend sealants?
- Can you check my child’s mouthguard?
These questions cover all the bases for general dental health and safety. A mouthguard will be checked for wear, tear and fit in case a replacement will be needed, while sealants can help prevent cavities in permanent molars. A professional cleaning picks up where brushing and flossing leave off to give your child a nice bright smile to begin their school year.
If you need to schedule a dental checkup for your child at any time of year, give Millcreek Family Dental a call today!
