If you’re working from home and your kids are doing school remotely, your schedules are probably more hectic than normal. You might have made changes to your family’s routine, including mealtime and snacktime. With the kids at home more, there’s a chance they may not be brushing their teeth every morning. They also might be snacking more throughout the day since food is accessible 24/7. These habits can increase their risk of cavities.

It’s important to stay vigilant with your kids’ oral hygiene habits. Make sure they brush well twice a day with fluoride toothpaste, floss daily, and rinse with water after eating or drinking anything other than water.

Also, be sure to bring them in for their routine cleanings and exams. We’ll know if any problems have developed since their last dental visit, especially if you’ve postponed it. We will recommend the best, most conservative option to address them. We’ll also be proactive with thorough teeth cleanings and, if necessary, fluoride treatments and sealants.
