What To Expect During Your Child’s First Dental Visit

No comments
Oral health is part of good overall health and that is why regular dental visits are important!  According to the Canadian Dental Association, infants should visit a dentist by the time their first tooth erupts, or at the latest, by the first birthday. As a parent, your goal is to have your child go to the dentist before any oral problems arise. Bi-annual dental exam visits (every six months)  allow the dentist to catch any issues before they become severe and help form a prevention plan for cavities.

Four Myths about Baby Teeth

No comments
Hi Everyone! Let’s talk baby teeth myths. Healthy gums and teeth are essential at any age but there are many myths and false information surrounding baby teeth that we will address here to help you learn a little bit more on this topic. 

Myth 1 – You Do Not Need to worry about oral health before baby teeth erupt

This is false because you need to care for your baby’s mouth even before the teeth break through, as the mouth can be a host for several bacteria/fungus. While most babies are only drinking breast milk or formula at this age, it is very important to wipe down your baby’s gums and tongue with a soft washcloth after they drink or eat any solids. This will ensure a clean mouth free of milk residue and bacteria.
