Well here we are…finally enjoying a little taste of warmer weather.
Summer vacation is the best time of year for most kids. Slumber parties, staying up late, playing video games, visiting the orthodontist. Yes, you read that right…we did say visiting the orthodontist.
Healthy teeth do more than provide your child with an opportunity to show off their smile. Healthy teeth enable your child to be more confident, allow for easier social development and help to promote over-all good health.
Most orthodontic problems are inherited, and therefore cannot be prevented. However, early diagnosis and treatment by Dr. Lenz can often guide facial development and tooth eruption, and thereby prevent more serious problems from occurring. While your child’s teeth may appear to be straight, there could be a problem that only an orthodontist can detect.
The upcoming school year is like a clean slate just waiting to be filled with good memories and opportunities for growth and adventure. So…embrace the summer months and give your child a happy, healthy smile!
