Beat the Back to School RushAt the Dentist

Summer Is Ending!

Summer is ending, and before you know it, your kids will be returning to school. Before you get caught up in the back to school rush, Dr. Tilman Richards recommends scheduling an appointment for teeth whitening in Corpus Christi, TX, for your children.

It is vital to maintain the health of your children’s teeth before the start of the new school year, because the summer months often encourage overindulgence in sugary sweets and cavity-causing treats. Regular brushing, flossing, and rinsing alone are not sufficient to prevent bacteria and decay from affecting your children’s oral health.

In-Office Dental Visits Are Better

Dental teeth whitening procedures that are completed in the office are more effective than over-the- counter whitening products. Office visits require less time, while still providing the results you desire. These appointments also allow your children’s teeth and gums to be examined for signs of decay, gum disease, and other abnormalities.

Benefits of in-office based teeth whitening include:

  • Improved and more evenly distributed results
  • Brighter and healthier smile
  • Treatments are customized to patient’s teeth
  • Less irritation and discomfort to gum lines
  • Professional and informative experience to encourage proper dental health and hygiene

During your children’s teeth cleaning appointment, Dr. Richards will assess their dental health for the early signs of gum disease. Since gum disease can occur at any time, early detection is imperative, to prevent detrimental conditions that may affect your children’s smile and oral health in the future. If it has been determined that your children display signs of periodontal disease, Dr. Richards offers gum disease treatment with LANAP®. It is one of the more minimally invasive, cosmetic procedures available, with an expedited recovery time.

Ensure that your children have a happy, healthy, and white smile to start the school year. Encourage them to maintain their results by encouraging optimal dental hygiene habits. Emphasizing the importance of avoiding sugary foods and beverages may also affect the health and appearance of their teeth.

Staff is very friendly. No wait time. They saw me and my daughter in a timely manner and Dr. Richards was so great! The work I had done was completely pain free... Didn't even feel the shot or the work that was being done. The end results were exactly what I needed! No pain, no complaints. Dr. Richards even called the same evening to see if I was feeling okay and to see if I had any questions... Best dental services I have ever had.Marisa B.
