For kids' teeth, at-home and professional whitening agents can sometimes cause tooth sensitivity. We recommend waiting at least until adolescence before considering tooth whitening. And we encourage our patients to ask us questions if you're concerned about discoloration! #ToothLove

The goal of brushing is to remove plaque from your teeth, but plaque is actually pretty soft! Brushing too hard only serves to wear down your mouth's natural defenses and can actually lead to bigger problems down the road. Toothpaste is abrasive, so let it do the hard work! #DentalFAQ

The temporomandibular joints, called TMJ, are the joints and jaw muscles that make it possible to open and close your mouth and there are several disorders that are associated with these joints. If you have chronic pain in your lower jaw area, you could have a problem with this complex group of muscles and bones. If you have questions give us a call! #DentalFAQ

Consistent brushing and flossing are the best way to take care of your teeth, but what about those hard to reach gaps and grooves? Dental Sealants are a thin protective coating we can put on your child's back teeth as an extra layer of defense against decay and cavities. In fact, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by almost 80% in molars!

Not all ear pain is caused by an infection. In fact, ear pain can be the result of tooth grinding, jaw misalignment or inflammation. If you frequently complain of ear soreness or pain, and doctors can find no fluid or infection, ask us for an evaluation. #DentalFAQ

Bad breath can be attributed to multiple causes, but oftentimes, bad breath is caused by a dirty tongue! Your tongue harbors bacteria and food particles beneath a thin layer of mucus. This can cause your breath to stink, if left untreated. When brushing your teeth, we suggest using your toothbrush or a tongue scraper to clean your tongue and get better smelling breath! #DentalFAQ
