Bad Habits That Are Harming Your Child’s Teeth

We frequently speak about the importance of oral health and ways to help you keep your teeth and mouth healthy. One of the best ways to do this is to teach healthy oral habits at a young age. Bad habits that start in childhood can be extremely difficult to change. We would hate for these habits to lead to problems with your children’s oral health now and in the future.

Let’s Build A Bridge!

Dealing with oral health complications can be stressful. If you or a loved one has experienced tooth loss, you may be struggling to choose a tooth replacement option. We believe it is important for our patients to understand the different options we provide. One treatment that we may suggest for severe decay or a missing tooth is a dental bridge. We want to be sure that our patients feel informed and comfortable with any treatment we recommend. Read on to learn more about this treatment and how we use it to restore oral health.

Importance Of Following Before And After Treatment Directions

Our goal is for our patients to have excellent oral health at all times. While this is ideal, we know it is not reality. Thankfully, we have the treatment know-how and technology to fix any oral health problem you may be experiencing. If we recommend a specific dental treatment, it is extremely important to schedule and receive that treatment in a timely fashion. Failure to do so can lead to serious complications with your oral health and may cause you to need additional or more extensive treatments. While it is critical to schedule your treatment appointments on time, it is also critical to follow any before- and after-care instructions for your treatment and recovery. Failure to do so can negatively impact the results of the treatment.

How Beverages Can Negatively Affect Your Oral Health

With the hot summer weather, you have probably been enjoying some nice, cold beverages to keep you hydrated and refreshed. Do you stop every day and get an iced coffee with special syrups and flavoring from your local coffee shop? Or perhaps your child plays sports, and you give them sports drinks to cool off. You may be surprised to learn that your beverage of choice could be damaging to your teeth and mouth. Unfortunately, some beverages, such as sports drinks, flavored iced coffees, juices, and soft drinks, often have more sugar than some candy bars!

Is Your Medication Harming Your Oral Health?

When you visit our office for any reason, whether it be an oral hygiene examination or a recommended dental treatment, we will ask for an update on your medical history. It is important that you share any medical conditions or treatments you may have had since the last time we saw you. It is also necessary that you share any medications you may be taking. This includes prescription and over-the-counter medications. Read on to learn more about how medications can affect your dental treatment.

Prepare For Your Child’s Dentist Visit

Did you know that we see children ages four and older at Joel D. Singer, DMD? If you are looking for a new dentist for your children, be sure to schedule an appointment with Dr. Entrup. It is recommended that children visit the dentist for their first appointment when their teeth start to emerge. Some parents are not aware or have not made an appointment for their children yet, even though they are older. That is no problem at all, because there is no time like the present to schedule an appointment.
