Statistics show as many as 10% of high school students have tried e-cigarettes. Regardless of how it’s delivered, nicotine is a highly addictive drug that should be avoided by everyone, especially growing teens. It’s important to educate your teens about the potential hazards of this growing trend, like gum disease, bad breath, and even tooth loss. #DentalFAQ

When choosing a toothpaste for your child, it’s important to find one that has the ADA seal of approval, which guarantees that it has been evaluated by a reputable organization, and that the product works as advertised. We suggest avoiding whitening toothpastes, which can contain irritating abrasives, and looking for a toothpaste that offers a “complete clean.” #2min2x

Did you know that the ancient Romans are the first civilization recognized as using mouthwash?

Did you know that certain foods and medications can cause bad breath? Bad breath can also be caused by food debris leftover in the mouth and having a dry mouth. To keep bad breath away, simply brush your teeth twice per day for two minutes at a time, and floss once per day to remove food debris from between teeth. #DentalFAQ
