Know when to let a toothbrush go

Know when enough is enough. Don’t hang on to your toothbrush if it’s showing wear or the bristles are splayed, which usually happens after about three months. It’s also time to replace the toothbrush if you’ve just gotten over a cold.

*How should I store my toothbrush?
Store your toothbrush upright and let it air dry before using it again. Microorganisms are more likely to grow in a moist environment, so don't cover your toothbrush or store it in a closed container. Because bacteria can travel easily from brush to brush, don't store your toothbrush in the same container as someone else's.

As stated by the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry, more than 40 percent of U.S. children will have tooth decay before the age of five.
CHICAGO (Feb. 22, 2010) – Tooth decay is the single most common chronic childhood disease, according to the U.S. Surgeon General. This February, the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) encourages parents and caregivers to "Get it Done in Year One." Visiting a pediatric dentist by the time the first baby tooth appears enables the child to begin a lifetime of preventive dental care, helping to minimize tooth decay and cavities. In fact, studies show that dental costs for children who have their first dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the first five years than for those who do not see a dentist prior to their first birthday.
Baby teeth are vulnerable to tooth decay from their very first appearance, on average between the ages of six and 12 months. Pediatric dentists specialize in caring for these tiny teeth, imperative for proper speech development and nutrition. The specialized care offered by a pediatric dentist includes unique strategies for working with children that alleviate fear and anxiety through the use of positive reinforcement and behavior guidance. Pediatric dentists monitor babies’ growth and development and provide essential dentistry services including tooth cleaning, polishing and fluoride treatment.
For healthy smiles, dental care must be established in – and out – of the pediatric dentist’s chair. The AAPD recommends the following at-home methods for infant oral health care:
• Clean infant mouths and gums regularly with a soft infant toothbrush or cloth and water.
• Children older than six months need fluoride supplements if their drinking water does not contain enough fluoride. Fluoride supplementation in infants has been shown to reduce tooth decay by as much as 50 percent. Check with your pediatric dentist first.
• Babies should be weaned from the bottle by 12-14 months of age and at will breast-feeding should be discouraged.
• Baby teeth should be brushed at least twice a day with a toothbrush made for small children using a "smear" of fluoridated toothpaste.

Dr. Jiamachello did his undergraduate studies at Duke University. He received his D.D.S., from UNC-School of Dentistry and completed his Pediatric residency at the University of Texas Dental Branch.

With school starting back and sports check out our website for info on Mouth Guards.
http://www.jiamachello.com/library/59/MouthGuards.html

Sports like basketball, baseball, gymnastics, and volleyball all pose risks to your gum tissues, as well as your teeth. We usually think of football and hockey as the most dangerous to the teeth, but nearly half of sports-related mouth injuries occur in basketball and baseball.
