The first day of school in Sarasota County is just around the corner. Do you remember when your child’s last general dental visit occurred? If it’s been longer than six months, now is a great time to call one of our offices and schedule a routine cleaning and examination, to help ensure your child starts the year right – with a healthy, strong, and beautiful smile.
The Importance of Routine Dental Care
Routine dental care is essential for optimal oral health – and the habits developed in childhood can set the foundation for a lifetime of healthy teeth and gums.
Coming to our office every six months serves several purposes, not the least of which is professionally cleaning all surfaces of the teeth, even below the gum line, to help prevent issues such as decay, infection, and gingivitis from occurring. During these visits, our experienced dentists are also able to check the teeth and gums for early signs of oral health issues, allowing us to provide prompt treatment when needed to help prevent small concerns from becoming major problems.
Planning for a Lifetime of Healthy Teeth and Gums
We welcome kids of all ages at our Sarasota offices. Bringing children in at a young age – even before they are in school – will help instill confidence and comfort in professional dental care. Consistent visits starting in early childhood also allow us to help educate your child on age-appropriate home routines and to plan for future services, such as orthodontics, that may be needed as they grow.
Open five days a week until 5 p.m., we are often able to schedule more than one family member at a time, helping to save busy parents from multiple trips. Call our University Palm Aire Plaza office at 941-351-4468 to learn more or to schedule an appointment today.
