When is the right time for an orthodontic evaluation? By age 7 we can spot subtle problems with jaw growth and emerging teeth. If caught early enough, some problems can be corrected by simply changing bad habits! Call us for more information about what an ortho evaluation entails. #dentalfaq #orthofaq

Are you worried that orthodontic treatment will require too many visits? Our clear aligner options can usually be scheduled out, requiring infrequent visits and fewer absences from work or school. Ask us about what a treatment plan could look like for you! #OrthoLove

Tooth decay is caused by bacteria in the mouth using sugar from foods and drinks to produce acids that dissolve and damage the teeth. Did you know that a single 20 oz bottle of soda contains over 16 packets of sugar? That’s like a feast for the bacteria! Choose water or other less sugary drinks to fight tooth decay! #ToothLove

This Halloween, you can help young trick-or-treaters avoid tooth decay by handing out dark chocolate! Dark chocolate doesn’t stick to teeth as much as hard candy, and the tannin in cocoa may help to prevent tooth decay by reducing the growth of plaque. This is because the oxalic acid in chocolate appears to lower acid production. #ToothLove

Toothaches are no fun! Especially if you're a kid. If your child is experiencing tooth pain, start with over the counter pain medication and ice. Most minor tooth pain can be taken care of at home, but if the pain persists or worsens, give us a call as soon as possible! #DentalFAQ
