Back-to-School Dental and Vision Exams

Back-to-School Dental and Vision Exams

As the calendar flips from July to August, the thoughts of back-to-school begin.  The carefree days of Summer start to fill with appointments, practices and last-minute vacations.  Before you get too busy, don’t forget to make those dental cleanings and eye exams for the kids!

Although adults tend to have more vision problems as they get older, kids need eye exams as well to ensure healthy vision. A complete eye exam with dilation is needed to diagnose eye diseases.  Routine exams by an eye doctor are essential to make sure your child is seeing as clearly as possible and to help identify any health problems that could result in vision loss.

Computers and smartphones along with other electronic devices can cause tired eyes, digital eye strain and computer vision syndrome.

In addition to their vision, regular teeth cleanings are extremely important to your child’s dental health. Children need just as many cleanings as adults–one every six months.  Diseased, crooked or missing teeth or a misshapen jaw can interfere with your speech; make chewing your food properly difficult and painful; and lead to expensive corrective procedures.

Cavities are painful places on your teeth where decay has eaten through the enamel and exposed a tooth's root. Hot or cold food or liquids can send a painful signal that something is wrong.

Regular visits to your child’s dentist can help them maintain healthy teeth, gums and mouth.??

Today, life is busy and making and keeping your annual eye exam and dental cleanings are important.   Everyone needs to have a thorough evaluation of their eyes and teeth on a regular basis to ensure their vision and oral health are in good shape.

Many employers offer Health Insurance options but do not include Dental or Vision coverage. Dental and vision needs can be a major cost for some, and coverage for these items can be very important.
