Summer vacation can be a great time to take the kids on an adventure, but it can also be a smart time to bring them in for a routine oral health exam. Our St. Louis, MO dentist’s office is here for families ready to use the break from school to take care of important matters like pediatric dental checkups. With our younger patients, we offer beneficial preventive services that help people of all ages as well as assistance to help them learn to maintain healthy and confident smiles. These appointments should happen on a semiannual basis. If the six month mark is approaching soon or already passed, make sure everyone in your family has their next visit scheduled as soon as possible!
Regular dental exams are important for people of all ages. For kids, they can be beneficial both because they offer important updates about their dental health and well-being and because they provide guidance on preventive care at home. Part of what makes kids’ needs at the dentist’s office different from adult needs is that children require guidance to develop the right approach to dental hygiene. We can assist with this, and we can offer timely cavity protection that makes decay less likely to affect them.
From their initial appointments on, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell takes care to make the youngest patients at our practice feel welcomed and at ease. A positive first impression can make subsequent visits less stressful. When they reach an age where they can participate in the care that adults enjoy, we can ease them into this additional support, while still carving out time to instruct them about at-home care. With fluoride treatments and dental sealants, we can also provide further support against dental decay so that they grow up without the need for restorative treatment.
Our practice is here to do more than just help your kids remain cavity-free, as we can also support you in your efforts to prevent dental problems. During your routine oral health evaluations and cleanings, Dr. Johnson-G’Sell can take care to keep you safe from the different problems that can impact your appearance and quality of life. In addition to providing services that are focused on your oral health, remember that we can supply services that focus on making smile improvements.
There is still time to bring your kids in for smile care before their summer vacation is over! Regular oral health appointments are beneficial for people of all ages, but they can be especially helpful for kids.
