Just like us humans, dogs only get two sets of teeth in their entire lives! They only have their puppy teeth for about 4 months and then they start to lose them and make room for the adult teeth. #DentalFAQ

A recent study in the U.S. showed that on average, 31% of students aged 6 to 12 years old had reported absences from school due to dental issues. That's a lot of missed school! You can help bring the average down by brushing twice a day for 2 minutes and paying us a visit to catch any problems early! #2min2x

For kids' teeth, at-home and professional whitening agents can sometimes cause tooth sensitivity. We recommend waiting at least until adolescence before considering tooth whitening. And we encourage our patients to ask us questions if you're concerned about discoloration! #ToothLove

This #DentalFAQ is surprising but it makes sense. Even though tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body, it still needs to be protected!

The goal of brushing is to remove plaque from your teeth, but plaque is actually pretty soft! Brushing too hard only serves to wear down your mouth's natural defenses and can actually lead to bigger problems down the road. Toothpaste is abrasive, so let it do the hard work! #DentalFAQ

The temporomandibular joints, called TMJ, are the joints and jaw muscles that make it possible to open and close your mouth and there are several disorders that are associated with these joints. If you have chronic pain in your lower jaw area, you could have a problem with this complex group of muscles and bones. If you have questions give us a call! #DentalFAQ

Consistent brushing and flossing are the best way to take care of your teeth, but what about those hard to reach gaps and grooves? Dental Sealants are a thin protective coating we can put on your child's back teeth as an extra layer of defense against decay and cavities. In fact, sealants have been shown to reduce the risk of decay by almost 80% in molars!
