Welcome to the Perrigo Dental Care blog!

Now that we have reached August, the beginning of the academic year and the shift in schedules that goes along with school starting are only a matter of days from taking effect.

An important part of preparing your child for the coming year, is making sure that your family’s oral health is on-track. If things have gotten lax over the summer, now is the acceptable time to turn it all around.

At home, you will need to make sure that your entire brood is diligent about brushing, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash daily. Maybe buy a new round of toothbrushes to make it more exciting.

Beyond that, it will be your duty to get everyone in to see us for checkups every 3-6 months. Everything you do at home is all well and good, but you won’t have access to the tools, training and technology without a great dentist in the picture.

A Great Dentist In Hoover, AL

To us, family dentistry is an important, neverending undertaking. And finding a dentist you can trust to keep up with your ever-changing needs will go a long way towards a happy ending for everyone concerned.

The idea is for your family to build a relationship with our team that they can rely on for many years to come as things come up. Our professional cleanings and exams are only the beginning. We can help you get extra protection with sealants and fluoride treatments. Moreover, we can help you navigate orthodontic issues, and address cosmetic concerns. And if an emergency ever causes a tooth to become dislodged, we will be able to help you reclaim your life with one of our great restorative treatments.

In general, it is always in your best interest to bring your family in often. With school starting, this would be a really great time to come back.

Routine Care Gives Your Kids An Advantage

You may not realize it, but we can play a big role in making the school year better for your children. Here are some of the advantages of regular dental care:

Sharpened Focus

Think about it: it is easy to get distracted when you feel like your teeth are not clean or when you can feel plaque buildup on the backs of your teeth. We have found that having a clean, healthy smile translates into better focus and in turn better performance in school.

Increased Confidence

Kids sense that the condition or appearance of someone’s smile is something others will notice. As such, they will feel so much more confident about the process of making new friends if they have a great-looking smile to share at school.

Less Days Missed

Did you know that there is a very real connection between the health of your smile and the your overall wellness? If your kid has a mouth that is free of infection and decay, he or she is far less likely to have problems elsewhere.
