Thumb sucking can be a natural reflex to comfort infants. However, if it persists, it can cause problems with the proper growth of the mouth and tooth alignment. Which can cause bigger problems down the road. If your child is still sucking her thumb after the age of 3, please ask us about some steps we can take to help her stop.

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! #DentalFAQ

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

There are multiple cosmetic whitening products and procedures available, but are any of them safe for children? The AAPD advises that children don’t whiten all of their teeth until they have all of their permanent teeth. This ensures that their teeth will all be the same shade of white. Contact our office if you would like more information about whitening children’s teeth. #DentalFAQ

Attention Patients with braces: A proxabrush could be your new best friend! Flossing with braces can be difficult, but you still need to clean those places between teeth. The proxabrush's handle makes it easy to maneuver and the slender head and bristles clean between appliances and teeth. Ask us for more info! # DentalFAQ #OrthoFAQ
