The baseball season has started up, which means the Astros are on their way to contending for a repeat World Series Championship. It’s also the time when kids are gearing up for Little League and high school baseball, which means there will be plenty of unhealthy food to go around.
Baseball is full of peanuts, Cracker Jack, candy, Frito pies, chili dogs, and more. Now would be the perfect time to bring your kids to our dental office in Bellaire. Our kids dentists love making certain kids teeth are clean and healthy.
WHY KIDS NEED A DENTAL CLEANING
A dental cleaning is very necessary for the health of children’s teeth. Kids eat a ton of snacks, many of which aren’t healthy. Making certain kids are brushing twice per day and flossing daily is vital to their oral health. Receiving a dental cleaning every six months helps ensure that kids teeth are free of cavities, gum disease and any oral issues that could arise. It is the best way to combat current and future major dental issues.
BASEBALL INJURIES AND DENTAL CARE
If your kid is participating in baseball, then there is a chance they could sustain an oral injury. In an instance of a dental emergency, our pediatric dentist can help make certain your child’s teeth are protected.
In the event of a tooth avulsion, our dental staff can help ensure your child doesn’t lose their natural tooth.
To protect teeth from sustaining injury, we do recommend kids wear mouthguards. This will keep teeth safe in case of being hit with the ball or encountering a collision with another player.
BRING YOUR BASEBALL PLAYER IN FOR DENTAL CHECK UP
Now would be a great time to bring your kid into our Bellaire dentist office for a dental check up. Our dental team looks forward to putting your kids on the path to great oral health.
