How to Set the Right Dental Examples for Your Family
PEDIATRIC brushing teeth games 892779440
Our children are the most important thing in the world to us. They are little mirrors, showing us both our graces and our faults. However, this also means that while they imitate good behaviors, they could also be imitating bad behaviors too. It's one thing to tell your kids to brush their teeth and floss, but if they don't see you following up on that command, they most likely won't follow up on their end either.

The best thing outside of brushing with them, is to remind them of the importance of brushing and flossing. We don't want to sound like a broken record, but realistically, if you instill in them the importance of it, it will save you a lot of money (and them some pain). Furthermore, if you have older kids and they seem set in their ways, try setting up a reward system and then removing it slowly after good habits build up.

It's also a good idea for you to come and see us while your kids are young! Setting the right kind of example for your family means encouraging everyone to go get help when needed and get check-ups regularly. A lot of kids (and a good portion of adults) are afraid to go to the dentist because of horror stories in the media. We can curb that fear early and begin building a good rapport with your kids (or spouse!) so that bringing them in doesn't feel like an obligation every time. Give our office a call and let's start building a relationship today!

Ways Having Good Oral Habits Saves You Money
We all know the basics to good oral health: brushing at least three times a day, flossing during those times, not eating food for at least 30 minutes after - but there are bound to be days that those basics aren't a priority. If your oral health seems to be slipping more and more, you need to know that it's not only your teeth that are being hurt, but your future finances as well. Oral pains are complex and if your oral habits are poor, that pain will be magnified. Between the office visits to us, and the recovery time from surgeries that could have been prevented, you could have saved a lot of money if you had been stricter in your oral health routine. We recommend a cleaning and check-up every six months, so if you find yourself slipping in your routine, use that cleaning as a new starting point and recommit yourself to the process.

Having Good Digestion Requires You Having Healthy Teeth

Our digestive systems are arguably the most important thing that allows us to live. We need to eat food, which we then process, and we gain the rewards from making the right eating choices. But one of the functions that aids digestion is our teeth. Your teeth help to break down the foods you eat, and when your teeth lack the ability to do this effectively, your whole body suffers. Our office knows the importance of helping you obtain healthy teeth, and we are more than happy to help you on your way to getting healthier. Give our office a call, and we'll get you on track for your goals.
