If you can't fly, then run, if you can't run, then walk, if you can't walk, then crawl, but whatever you do, you have to keep moving forward.

So what exactly is SRBD? #healthyliving
The condition is characterized by recurrent episodes of interrupted breathing during sleep. The child's airway becomes blocked by soft tissues near the back of the throat — tonsils or the tongue, for example — that partially close off the windpipe. These tissues can vibrate as air passes by, causing snoring. It's often worse while sleeping on one's back because this encourages the lower jaw to slip back, which in turn pushes the tongue in front of the airway. #smiles4life #brynmawr

Overweight children have a higher incidence of sleep apnea due to fatty tissue deposits in the soft palate, which decrease the size of the child's airway. +Be Well Philly

Your child's little baby teeth have some big responsibilities. #brush2xaday Until the adolescent years, they will not only help your youngster bite and chew and speak correctly but also help guide the permanent teeth underneath them into proper position. In fact, a major function of baby teeth is to hold space for the adult teeth that will eventually push them out. Fortunately, if your child loses a tooth prematurely, there's a dental appliance we can use to hold the space open for the permanent tooth that is meant to fill it. The device is, not surprisingly, called a “space maintainer” +Be Well Philly #smiles4life #brynmawr #19010 http://www.deardoctor.com/library/70619/?issue=issue1&startid=54

A child's newly erupted permanent teeth are not as resistant to decay as adult teeth are. The hard enamel coating that protects the teeth changes as it ages to become stronger. Fluoride, which is found in toothpaste and some drinking water — and in treatments we use here at the dental office — can strengthen enamel, but, again, it's hard to get fluoride into those pits and fissures on a regular basis. Fortunately, there is a good solution to this problem: #dentalsealants #smiles4life #goodbyedecay

FAQ: Are all teeth important? +Be Well Philly Simply put, YES!! That is why brushing their gums before a single tooth erupts is a wise move. Thoroughly cleaning your infant’s gums after each feeding with a water-soaked infant cloth. This stimulates the gum tissue and removes food. #smiles4life #brynmawr #PDML #mainline #19010 #Philadelphia #6105272434
