When scheduling health care appointments, don’t overlook a dental checkup for your child. A dental examination is as important as booster shots and should be a regular part of back-to-school preparations.
More than one-half of all children aged 5 to 9 years have at least one cavity or filling. A painful tooth or chronic dental problem can lead to diffi-culty in eating, speaking and concentrating. Children with chronic dental pain may not always voice their problem. They may appear anxious, depressed or tired, but teachers may not recognize their pain. Dental problems also cause many children to miss school.
Regular dental checkups and preventive dental care, such as cleanings and fluoride treatment, provide children with “smile” insurance. Routine
dental examinations uncover problems that can be treated in the early stages, when damage is minimal and restorations may be small. This helps prevent painful, chronic conditions and saves money.
