Does it seem like school keeps starting earlier each and every year? It feels like summer just started, and now school buses are already revving their engines and backpacks are being filled with new school supplies. Buford City Schools begins on August 7.

As your student starts to prepare for the new school year, and school starts up again, it’s essential to keep a couple of things in mind so your child can maintain optimal oral health throughout the school year.
Optimal Oral Health Strategies For Students
- Brush Before The Bus – Kids have to get up so early to catch the bus or meet their carpool ride. Many children are already sitting in their desks at school before the sun rises during certain times of the year. With all the rush to get out the door, the morning tooth brushing habit can be thrown to the wayside. Brushing your teeth in the morning is essential to remove plaque buildup that happened while you slept. Be sure to build in enough time in the mornings for your child to have a proper two minutes of tooth brushing every day before school.
- “Set It So You Won’t Forget It” – If your child is undergoing cosmetic tooth alignment called Invisalign Teen, you’ll want to give him the tools and instruction to care for the clear aligners that accompany this process. Teach your child the term, “set it so you won’t forget it.” As your child enjoys his lunch while at school, it’s essential that he set his aligner in a place that is not easily forgotten or thrown away. Send him with a case to set the aligners, so they are kept safely and returned to his teeth directly after eating.
