Like to chew gum? Pick gum with Xylitol, a popular sugar substitute that can clean teeth as you chew! Xylitol stimulates saliva production and strengthens enamel, which is the first line of defense against cavities!

New Year, new toothbrush! Is your child’s toothbrush as effective as it can be? To keep your child’s toothbrush running strong, rinse it thoroughly under cool tap water after brushing, washing the bristles clean of all debris. Be sure to replace their toothbrush every 3-4 months!

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
