If you can’t quite remember the last time you made it to the dentist for your checkup, you’re missing a huge opportunity to take your oral health into your own hands. Seeing your dentist at least once a year should really be non-negotiable, but it tends to slip the mind for many people. It turns out that regular checkups are especially important for your kids.
As children’s teeth grow, change, and move, regular checkups by the team at Westerville Pediatric Dental can spot potential developmental issues long before they present something troubling. Instead of simply viewing your kids’ checkups as another thing to cross off your to-do list—or the first thing you can cancel when your schedule needs some breathing room—try to approach it as an opportunity to be proactive with your health.
Our team will always try to help you and your family with this, but try to actually make—and keep—your appointment each year, even if that means setting a midyear calendar reminder to nudge yourself. Now, as the seasons change, is a great time to build your checkups into your schedule on an ongoing basis.
As time passes, we will be able to make and maintain a history of your family’s records. This will help everyone know about possible issues, monitor them as they get resolved, and develop ways to keep your children’s mouths healthy and free of illness down the road.
In these uncertain times, it’s incredibly useful to be proactive about everything you can, but perhaps most of all your health. The team at Westerville Pediatric Dental is here for your family all the time. Call our office today to get your checkups scheduled. There’s really no better time than right now.
