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

Halloween is a night of costumes, fun frights and lots of candy. For children, it’s really all about the candy. This Halloween, try helping your local trick-or-treaters by passing out less hard candy, which can stick to teeth and lead to tooth decay. Instead, consider handing out dark chocolate, which is delicious and easier on teeth! #ToothLove

Gum is a great way to freshen breath, but did you know that gum sweetened with Xylitol actually cleans teeth as it’s chewed? It has been proven to reduce decay-causing bacteria, and reduce acids released by the bacteria in plaque. #ToothLove

Dr. Woolf Krause, a dentist from Britain, began to fashion mouthguards for boxers back in 1892. When first introduced, the boxers objected, claiming that they were an unfair advantage. But by the late 1920's they were commonplace and still live on today! Protect your athlete's teeth like Dr. Krause did! #DentalHistory #ToothLove
