Did you know that water plays an important role in mouth health? Water improves saliva production, keeping enamel strong and preventing tooth decay. It also washes debris away from teeth and helps to prevent plaque buildup. #DentalFAQ

The winter holiday gives us plenty of seasonal snacks that taste terrific! Unfortunately, some of these delicious delicacies are awful for teeth. Be sure to brush and floss and pay extra attention to your teeth!

Teething might be a big factor. Children acquire 20 teeth during their first couple of years. That results in a lot of teething behavior. To avoid biting, you should watch your child carefully in high-risk situations, such as when your child is tired, hungry, or competing with another child for a favorite toy. Also watch out during stressful changes at home, like potty-training, moving, or the arrival of a new sibling. We recommend using distraction techniques to redirect your child towards another activity. Have items on hand like snacks or teething rings cooled in the fridge to soothe their pain. #dentalfaq

In 1819 Levi Spear Parmly, a dentist from New Orleans, is credited with inventing the first form of dental floss. He instructed his patients to run a waxen silk thread between their teeth to "dislodge that irritating matter which no brush can remove and which is the real source of disease." He considered flossing the most important part of dental care. Good thinking Dr. Parmly! #DentalFAQ
