River Valley Smile Center Encourages Children Receive Dental Check-ups Before Beginning New Semester
FORT SMITH, Ark., July 23, 2018 (Newswire.com) - As the Fort Smith School District is set to begin their new semester on Aug. 15, River Valley Smile Center, a leading dental practice located in Fort Smith, Ark., encourages parents to schedule check-ups before the start of the new school year.
River Valley Smile Center is a collective team of committed dental professionals, including two dentists, Dr. Charles Liggett and Dr. Cole Johnson, serving the River Valley with dedicated dental care.
It’s recommended that children visit a dentist every six months for a check-up to prevent cavities and other dental problems, according to the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.
About 19 percent of children between the ages of five and 19 have untreated dental caries, according to Centers for Disease Control and Prevention statistics. Dental caries is the scientific term for tooth decay or cavities.
Preventative measures can be taken to limit cavities, including: brushing teeth with fluoride toothpaste after eating or drinking (but do not brush with fluoride with children younger than two unless instructed by a health professional), scheduling regular dental visits, avoiding frequent snacking/sipping, eating tooth-healthy foods and avoiding certain foods which are less likely to be easily washed away by saliva (milk, ice cream, honey, sugar, soda, dried fruit, cake, cookies, hard candy, dry cereal and chips), according to the Mayo Clinic.
River Valley Smile Center is a comprehensive dental practice which offers an array of services, including: cosmetic and restorative dentistry, whitening, veneers, clear braces, same day crowns, root canals, oral surgery, gum treatment, children’s dentistry, implants and more.
