September might not seem like a very remarkable month as far as your kids go but your children’s dentist has some suggestions for this time. Primarily, that you spend this month preparing for October, so you’re ready for all that it brings. Not sure what this means but you are always sure you want to keep your kids’ smiles safe? Spend a moment considering how to make the most of the beginning of autumn for successful home smile care.

Dig Out Winter Wear

We know. It’s still going to be nice and warm well into October, so digging out sweaters and jackets doesn’t seem like a very important detail. However, your children’s dentist reminds you that there are unseasonably cooler days on occasion. Of course, nighttime temperatures also begin to dip. Keep your kids warm and toasty during the evening, so they can more easily avoid the common cold, the flu, and anything else that can lead to feeling yucky, mouth breathing, and subsequent dry mouth (and the unfortunate fact that upper respiratory problems do not bode well for oral health)!

See Us For Sealants

You will be able to connect the dots on this one very quickly: What’s the most exciting thing about October to your children? That’s right. Halloween and lots of candy. If your children do not yet have dental sealants or if it’s been quite a while since they received them (or since their last checkup), head in to see us. Your children’s dentist explains that getting a head start on oral health protection before the autumn and winter candy rush shows up is always a wise plan.
