Back-To-School Checkups

Although this summer has been unique and full of various challenges, it is time for the back-to-school season to begin. Whether your child will be going back to school in-person or you've chosen a remote option for this year, once school is in full swing, it can be a lot more challenging to find the time to visit your dentist.

Dental Check-ups Are Crucial for Good Health

When you make visiting the dentist a priority for your child, you are setting him or her up for success. Did you know that children with poor oral health are nearly three times more likely than their counterparts to miss school as a result of dental pain? Early detection and prevention can help your child avoid absences because of pain or sickness caused by cavities. 

During your child’s back-to-school dental visit, our experienced registered dental hygienist will clean your child’s teeth, check for cavities, and make sure your child is keeping up with good brushing and flossing habits. We might also take X-rays during your child's dental check-up. At Aesthetic Dentistry of Bernardsville, our team will take a cone beam CT scan (CBCT) x-ray of your child's mouth. This advanced x-ray technology will give us an in-depth view of your teeth, jaw, gums, nerves, and sinuses –  it can help detect and diagnose many diseases. It is also more comfortable than regular x-rays! 

Tips for a Great Experience During Your Visit

Your child should leave the dentist’s office with a new toothbrush, a sticker and a brighter smile. And you will walk away with peace of mind, knowing you have a full picture of your child’s overall health and that your son or daughter is truly ready to start the new school year!
