Back to School Dental tips

Disclosure: I received one or more products or monetary composition for the exchange for my honest opinion. I only recommend product that I would use personally or believe would be a good fit with my readers. All opinions are 100 percent my own and may differ from yours. I am disclosing this in accordance with the Federal Trade Commission’s 16 CFR, Part 255: “Guides concerning the use of Endorsements and Testimonials in Advertising.

The kids are heading back to school an as a mom I always want to be fully prepared this year. One thing that parents forget is how important it is to care for your children's teeth. It is important to keep a kit in your children's backpack for after lunch time. 

Parents forget the importance on children brushing their teeth especially at school. I wanted to share some important information with you about your children teeth.

When starting school you want your children to stay healthy. On long school days can be long for students and they may need extra energy to finish that last class. Packing children with granola bars, fruit, veggies would be a great snack for school.

Cheese is great for children teeth because it neutralizes acids. It helps acidic items like fruit juices and sodas, should be advised since they allow the bacteria in plaque to produce more acid. 

During the year you want to make sure you want to stay on top off appointments. At the beginning of each year you want to make sure to schedule a dentist appointment. Remember tooth decay is the most common chronic childhood disease and if left untreated, it can impair a child's ability to eat, speak, sleep and learn. 

So this year you want to make sure that you have a kit for your children for school. In my son front pocket of his backpack I have dental floss, tooth brush, toothpaste and mouth card for my son safety for school. Make sure you had these item to your back to school list so your child is protected at school.

  1. You are such a great mother, Julie! It's really important to assure that your kids are taking care of their oral health even without your guidance. Most especially when they are at school, where you wouldn't know what they are eating or drinking. Anyway, thanks for posting such helpful tips and reminders! All the best to you and your family!

  2. You're really a good mother and role model to your children. May this post be a way to inform other parents out there to give time and importance to their children's oral health. The first thing to do is to bring them to the dentist regularly, and monitoring that their kids brush and floss their teeth everyday. In any way, I'm so glad to hear from you, Julie! Thanks for sharing that! All the best to you!
