Electric toothbrushes can be great for children just beginning to brush on their own. They have built-in timers, which helps ensure that they brush for at least two minutes. Additionally, many kids enjoy them more than manual toothbrushes. #DentalFAQ

Most babies are ready to start making the switch to a sippy cup between 6-9 months. By the time they're 12 months, its best to stop using the bottle altogether. If she's still having a hard time, offer a blankie or stuffed animal as comfort during her transition. #dentalFAQ

Cavities and tooth decay are caused by acid producing bacteria in your mouth. While sugar is usually the source, starchy carbohydrates only make the problem worse. Things like potato chips get stuck and build up between teeth and give the bacteria something to feast on! Consider nuts or pretzels as an alternative for a salty snack. #DentalFAQ

Fun fact! Studies have shown that chewing sugarless gum after meals can help prevent tooth decay. The chewing of sugarless gum helps to wash away food and other debris, increase saliva flow, and neutralize acids in the mouth. Just make sure it’s sugar free! #DentalFAQ

We all love a sweet baby smile! Especially after those first teeth start to show! If your little one has tender gums, try gently rubbing the area with a clean, cool cloth or introduce a soft teething ring. Remember to bring you baby in for a visit once the first tooth comes in. #ToothLove

Accidents happen, and knowing what to do when one occurs can mean the difference between saving and losing a tooth. If your child knocks out a baby tooth, the best thing to do is find the tooth, keep it moist and get to a dentist. If the accident occurs when your dental office is not open, visit your local emergency room.

Too much screen time can be unhealthy for younger and older children. It has been linked to problems with sleep and obesity as well as aggression and mood. Some ways to help maintain a healthier limit for screens are to set boundaries. A great thing to do is to have a screen-free day. Spend that time playing board games, going on a hike, or visiting museums or parks. Take back your time by spending it together! #ToothLove

Did you know that ignoring your wisdom teeth has a high likelihood of causing dental problems? These can include Pericoronitis, tooth decay, impaction, and others. Whether or not they’re impacted, wisdom teeth are generally removed to prevent them from causing any problems. It could save you a lot of trouble later on! #dentalfaq
