DOWNERS GROVE, Ill. - Sept. 23, 2021 - PRLog -- Whether your child will be in the classroom or learning from home, a healthy smile is still a back-to-school essential. Some schools require a yearly dental exam. Here are a few questions to ask the dentist at your child's appointment:

How Is My Child's Dental Health?
The dentist will be looking at your child's mouth, including teeth and gums. He or she will check to make sure the teeth are lining up correctly and watch for any orthodontic issues that may show up later.

Will My Child Need X-Rays?
Dental x-rays help your dentist see how your child's teeth are developing and make sure the roots of the teeth are healthy.

Will My Child Get a Teeth Cleaning Today?
Yes. Even if your child brushes twice a day, it's not possible to get rid of all the bacteria that can lead to cavities. Dental teeth cleaning will remove harmful plaque and tartar between your child's teeth and along the gum line.

Does My Kid Need a Mouthguard if He Plays Sports?
If your child plays sports year-round, you should consider getting him or her a mouthguard to protect the teeth. Athletic mouthguards help cushion blows to your face or mouth, minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injuries to your lips, tongue, face, or jaw.

Does My Child Need Sealants?
A sealant is a thin, protective coating that your dentist can place on the chewing surfaces of your child's permanent back teeth (molars). They work to keep cavity-causing bacteria and bits of food from settling into the nooks and crannies your child's toothbrush can't reach. Having sealants on your permanent molars reduces the risk of cavities by 80%.
