When you think about helping your child succeed in the classroom, you probably think about making sure homework gets done, packing a nutritious lunch, and making sure they get enough sleep. But regular dental checkups also play a part in how your child performs at school.

Check out the shocking statistic in this short American Dental Association video. Dental-related illness (like cavities and infected teeth) account for more than 50 million hours of lost classroom time annually. That’s a statistic you don’t want your child to be a part of – and neither do we.

Bring your child to see us every six months, so we can find problems in their earliest stages when they are easiest to treat. In some cases, we can use silver diamine fluoride in place of a filing to halt decay. It’s a great option for very young kids or those with special needs. 

We’ll also clean your child’s teeth to keep problems from happening in the first place. You may also want to further protect their teeth with dental sealants and/or fluoride treatments. 

Regular dental checkups are important! Call Sprout and Bloom today at 720-615-6087 to schedule one in our Littleton, CO office. You can also schedule online.
