It’s so easy when you are a parent to forget about your own needs when you are busy running round after the kids. You get up, get them to school, go to work, collect them again, take them to all their extra-curricula activities, cook them dinner and before you know it, it’s time for bed and to start the whole routine again the next day.
How on Earth are you also meant to fit in taking care of your own needs by getting to a check-up with the dentist in Stevenage?
At Smilecraft, we know how hard it is for busy parents, but we also know how important a good oral health routine is. After your baby teeth fall out, you only have one set of adult teeth, which are meant to last you right through until you die, which could be 70 or 80 years.
Set an example
We also know that the best way for your kids to learn to take care of their teeth is by seeing you take care of your own. You need to brush them twice a day for 2 minutes, do some flossing once a day and finally, come and see the hygienist and the dentist in Stevenage.
The best way to set an example is to bring your babies along to your own appointments. Babies learn by copying and so, if they see you getting your teeth checked, and get to be in the dental clinic environment a few times before they are checked themselves, then it stops it being such a frightening experience.
Babies can start having check-ups when their first teeth come through.
One way to make sure everyone in the family gets a bi-annual check-up is to bring the whole crew along at once. You can have your session with the dentist in Stevenage and your kids can have theirs too. Plus, if you are a practice member, you can save money on treatments.
Don’t forget the hygienist
Check-ups let us know if anything needs fixing. Hygienist sessions are deep cleans to make sure there is less chance of you or your children needing treatment for dental disease. Don’t forget to book a session with your check-ups.
