TeleDentistry: Keeping Kids’ Teeth Strong

Valentine’s Day has passed, and Easter is approaching, which means that children may be tempted to indulge in more candy and sweets. However, it’s important to remember that extra sugar can lead to cavities. These sweet holidays serve as a reminder of the importance of caring for your child’s teeth. 

Eating lots of candy, especially during Valentine’s Day and Easter, can make teeth weak and cause cavities. In fact, according to the CDC, “Untreated cavities can cause pain and infections that may lead to problems with eating, speaking, playing, and learning.” For these reasons, it’s extremely important to make sure your child sees the dentist twice a year. It helps keep their teeth healthy and strong. 

We know life can be busy, especially if you’re a working parent/caregiver. That’s why we’re excited to tell you about our new TeleDentistry Services. You can now have emergency dental appointments at home, even at night. It’s easy to use and saves time.

A healthy smile makes a happy kid! So, while you enjoy Easter candy, don’t forget to think about your child’s teeth. It’s best to avoid chewy candies, like caramel and taffy, and stick with sweets that are easier to chew.
