TARZANA, Calif. (PRWEB) August 05, 2019
The summer season is in full swing, but children and students will soon be heading back to school. Trusted Woodland Hills dentist Dr. Kaveh Kanani wants to encourage patients and families to get a head start on booking their back-to-school dental checkup appointments. Dr. Kanani is currently offering an exclusive free consultation deal to new patients.
Scheduling a back-to-school dental checkup isn't only for the oral health of the child; some schools require back-to-school dental visits for specific grades. Additionally, back-to-school dental checkups are an excellent way to ensure that younger patients' teeth are staying healthy. Dr. Kanani encourages patients to make their child's back-to-school appointment early in the summer to avoid the August rush. Additionally, scheduling soon can help ensure you get the appointment time that works best for you.
Dr. Kanani also encourages patients to plan their back-to-school dental checkups as these checkups can lead to early detection of problems. If a child has a cavity or other disease, that can lead to pain, trouble eating, difficulty speaking, and absence from school. According to the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research, dental disease causes children to miss more than 51 million school hours each year.
During a child's back-to-school dental visits, Dr. Kanani will clean the child's teeth, check for cavities, and ensure the child is maintaining good oral health with consistent brushing and flossing habits. The appointments typically do not last longer than an hour.
Additionally, Dr. Kanani reminds patients that caring for their children's' oral health stretches beyond scheduling back-to-school dental checkups. Parents can take care of their children's teeth throughout the year by following a few reminders from Dr. Kananani.
Parents watch how much sugar their children are consuming. Most children love sweet foods, and while it would be difficult to ban them from enjoying sugary snacks thoroughly, it is possible to limit their consumption. Additionally, it's essential for parents to help their children eat at least three healthy meals a day. Healthy foods can have an enormous impact on a child's oral health. Healthy snacks may include grains, milk, cheese, raw vegetables, yogurt, and fruit. For parents with children who eat in the school's cafeteria, it's a good idea to review healthy, balanced food choices with them before the first day of school. Children should also be brushing twice a day, during the morning and at night, and flossing at least one time every day.
For parents with children who will be playing contact sports during school, it's essential to start getting them used to keep on a properly fitted mouthguard. Wearing a properly fitted mouthguard can protect the child's teeth from any damage or harm in the event of an accident.
Dr. Kanani encourages parents and families to make back-to-school dental checkup appointments before the summer is over. Additionally, for new patients, Dr. Kanani is currently offering an exclusive free consultation. During this free consultation, Dr. Kanani will determine if there are any oral health issues to be aware of with your child and if your child should be seen by the dentist more than once a year.
