Did you know that reindeer don’t have a top row of front teeth? Instead, they have a very hard bony plate used to grind food – perfect for eating the treats left by caring children everywhere! #DentalFAQ

Did you know that your child is 60 times more likely to sustain damage to their teeth when they aren’t wearing a mouth guard? You can help protect your child by getting them a mouth guard, which works to minimizing the risk of broken teeth and injury to the lip, tongue or cheek.

According to the ADA, roughly 1 in 5 children suffer from canker sores. These are small sores that appear inside the cheeks, on the lips, on the surface of the gums, and under the tongue. If your child gets frequent canker sores, a visit to our office would be helpful. Be sure to avoid food that is acidic, salty, and spicy. A toothbrush with soft bristles may also provide relief. Your child may be sensitive to an ingredient in their toothpaste. Try switching toothpastes and see if it makes a difference. #DentalFAQ

Did you know that your tongue harbors bacteria and food particles beneath a fine layer of mucus? YUCK! This can lead to noticeable bad breath, but you can prevent it by brushing your tongue! Use a tongue scraper to remove debris from your tongue and curb bad breath.

Fruit is a big part of a healthy diet, and a lot of fruit promotes a healthy mouth. However, when fruit is dried, it loses water and usually contains added sugar, which provides food to cavity causing bacteria. That's why it's best to eat fruit raw. #ToothLove

Saliva is your mouth’s most powerful natural defense against tooth decay. It helps neutralize harmful acids that erode tooth enamel and lead to cavities. You can promote saliva production by chewing gum sweetened with Xylitol, staying hydrated with water, or eating more fibrous foods. #DentalFAQ

When your child eats a school-supplied lunch, you are putting their oral health in the hands of their school. You can help keep their teeth by packing their lunch with a few mouth healthy foods! Try packing their lunch, and include an apple and yogurt! Both of these foods clean teeth, and improve oral health. #ToothLove

If a baby tooth is lost too soon, it can lead to crowding of adult teeth, which can negatively affect bite alignment. The bottom line is that you should care for your child’s baby teeth as if they were adult teeth to help them get a healthy smile that lasts into adulthood. #DentalFAQ
