As summer draws to a close, now is an ideal time to start your little ones off on the right foot, especially when it comes to their teeth. One way that would start the school year off right would be a quick trip to the dentist so they can take a look at what the summer sweets have done to their tiny smiles and take care of any issues before it gets progressively worse. Just because they currently have baby teeth, doesn’t mean that they can be forgotten. What goes on with baby teeth will dictate what goes on with their adult teeth going forward.

Now that you’ve asked your dental professional all the questions and concerns you may have, and now know what to expect from your child’s teeth throughout the upcoming year, there really is only one more box you need to check to ensure your little one has a great school year – and that’s their diet. There are lots of fruits and veggies that help keep cavities away. Foods with lots of protein and calcium help their teeth from the inside by building up strengthening enamel. There are virtually endless options available to keep their diet on the right track. There’s no need to deprive them of the sweet treats they long for, but keep it in moderation as you pack their lunch boxes. Starting the year off with great dental health will not only keep their smiles healthy, but will also make their school pictures absolutely adorable.
