Keep Those Summer Smiles Bright: Children's Dental Tips from Renton Children's Dentistry

Posted on Jun 2 2023

 Summer is here, bringing with it the promise of fun-filled days, late nights, and a break from school routines. But amidst the outdoor games, vacations, and the allure of ice cream and popsicles, it's important not to take a break from good oral hygiene habits! Renton Children's Dentistry, your trusted local pediatric dental practice, offers some handy tips to keep your children's teeth healthy and their smiles bright all summer long.

Stick to a Regular Dental Routine:

The relaxed schedule of summer can often disrupt daily routines, but brushing and flossing should never take a vacation. Ensure your children brush their teeth twice a day and floss once daily, no matter what adventures the day holds.

Choose Snacks Wisely:

Summer brings an array of sweet treats. Try to limit sugary snacks and drinks, as sugar is the main culprit behind cavities. Instead, opt for fruits, vegetables, cheese, and yogurt. Make sure your children drink plenty of water to stay hydrated and keep their mouths clean.

Pack a Dental Care Kit for Travels:

Going on a trip? Pack a travel-sized dental care kit with a toothbrush, toothpaste, and floss. This ensures your child's dental routine doesn't miss a beat, even on the go.

Protect their Teeth During Sports:

Summer is the perfect time for sports, but some can pose risks to your child's teeth. If they're involved in any contact sports, make sure they wear a mouthguard to protect their teeth and gums from injury.

Schedule a Dental Checkup:

Regular check-ups are crucial to maintaining good oral health. Summer is the perfect time to schedule a visit to Renton Children's Dentistry. Our friendly and skilled dental team will ensure that your child’s teeth are clean, healthy, and cavity-free.

Our Reviews

Araina, mother of a 5 year old

Took my daughter here for her very first appointment. She was a little nervous at first but the staff was so friendly! They took the time to explain to her each one of the tools they were using and she got to put a magnet on "no cavities" wall. She did great and I'm glad she'll be excited to go back in 6 months.

Bianca, mother of a 7 year old

Great experience. Able to get in on short notice. Front office, tech and doctor were all very patient with my 2 year old and very informative. Would absolutely recommend!

Sarah, mother of a 8 months old

When we walked in my son was so happy and excited! The entire place is like a forest with animals and trees! They waiting area had 4 TV's with video games for the older kids! And books and puzzles! Then for the younger kids they have a slide and padded floors! So cool!

Nancy, mother of a 11 year old

Amazing! So our kiddo had this fever and complaining of his teeth hurting. We noticed the swelling gum lines, bad breath, and his lack of food enthusiasm.
