Kids go free on NHS
Take advantage of your extra time with the kids this half term and book them in for their dental check-up. Visiting the dentist over the holiday will save you hassle of taking them during term-time.
Remember, as soon as your child’s milk teeth come through, keeping on top of their oral hygiene is really important. Not only does it help keep your child’s teeth in healthy for now, but it will effect the condition of their teeth right through to adulthood.
Healthy happy holidays
Make sure you find time for family health and fitness this half term. Book your child’s dental check-up before they go back to school. And why not walk or cycle to the dentist to get some fresh air and exercise at the same time!
Sneaky sugary snacks
Sugary food and drink like sweets and fizzy pop can damage our teeth. It’s really important to keep the amount your children in-take to a minimum. Regular check-ups will help your child to maintain healthy teeth for life.
Two minutes and counting
Children should brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day. Help get the most out of their brushing by using a mirror and timer. Your Oasis family dentist can give you expert brushing advice – book your appointment now.
