(Savannah Pediatric Dentists) Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill on tips for good oral health for kids

Thursday, September 30th, 2021

Savannah dentists pediatric dental children's Kidstree RIchmond Hill Pooler

Kid’s Dentistree, Richmond Hill

Below is a guest post by Kid’s Dentistree – a pediatric dentist in Richmond Hill.

In honor of National Dental Hygiene Month, Kid’s Dentistree is celebrating all the hardworking dental hygienists and sharing tips for maintaining good oral health. 

National Dental Hygiene Month is observed every October in the United States. Dental hygiene refers to the ways in which we keep our mouth, teeth and gums clean and healthy. Colgate.com explains that the goal of this awareness month is to celebrate the work dental hygienists do and spread the word about the importance of good oral health.

What do dental hygienists do?

When most people think of dental hygienists, they think of a teeth cleaning. However, the American Dental Association (ADA) highlights the many additional responsibilities hygienists hold. These include examining your mouth, taking your blood pressure and pulse, and assessing your overall health and wellness. Hygienists also take dental x-rays to check for any problems in places that aren’t easily visible, such as in between or underneath your teeth. They also educate patients about good nutrition and ways to keep a healthy mouth. The cleaning itself involves removing plaque and tartar from around your gum line, followed by thoroughly brushing and flossing your teeth.

How do I maintain good oral health?

MouthHealthy.org, an ADA website, emphasizes the importance of maintaining your oral health at all stages of life. Understanding proper brushing and flossing techniques and eating a well-balanced diet can go a long way toward preventing cavities. It’s also essential to see your hygienist on a regular basis to help remove tartar build-up and detect any potential problems before they worsen. This can even help you save money by avoiding costly dental treatments down the road.

Take advantage of your dental benefits!

Most dental insurances cover two annual cleanings and exams at little or no cost. If you have dental insurance and haven’t had your second visit for the year, now’s the time to take advantage of your benefits and schedule your appointment. If you do not have insurance, don’t worry. Give Kid’s Dentistree a call and ask about the discount options available to you.

Visit Kid’s Dentistree’s website or call (912) 756-5437 to schedule your child’s visit today.

The Kid’s Dentistree office is located in the “Clock Tower” building, right next to The Suites at Station Exchange on Ford Avenue in Richmond Hill.

(Pediatric Dentists) Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill on how much sugar is in kids’ drinks, snacks

Tuesday, August 3rd, 2021

Kid's Dentistree Richmond Hill pediatric dentists children's Savannah

In this guest post, Kid’s Dentistree – a pediatric dentist in Richmond Hill – is sharing tips for replacing your child’s sugary snacks with healthier alternatives to not only benefit their overall health but keep their teeth healthy and strong, too.

How Much Sugar is in Your Kid’s Snacks?

Every parent wants their kids to be happy and healthy. For most of us, this means balancing what they want with what we know is best for them. But that’s easier said than done, especially when it comes to their diets. Because not only are a lot of kids picky eaters – sometimes saying “no” to a candy bar means a tantrum or argument.

Unfortunately, new research suggests that the health risks of sugar might be worse than we thought. Sugar-rich diets increase the risk of childhood obesity, heart disease and diabetes, and too much sugar can lead to tooth decay and gum disease. That’s why the American Heart Association now recommends that children consume less than 25 grams (about 6 teaspoons) of added sugars per day.

Anyone who’s recently read the label on a can of soda knows that even drinking one 12-ounce can would exceed 25 grams. So, what’s a parent to do? Of course, Kid’s Dentistree encourages replacing sugary snacks with healthy alternatives, but it’s important to know how much sugar is in the snacks kids love to eat. Even gummy vitamins contain 1-2 grams of sugar, so it’ll add up quickly!

How much sugar is in kid’s drinks?

Kool-Aid (8 ounces) = 4 grams

Capri Sun (1 pouch) = 18 grams

Orange Juice (8 ounces) = 21 grams

Apple Juice (8 ounces) = 26 grams

Sprite (12 ounces) = 31 grams

Chocolate Milk (12 ounces) = 33 grams

Coca-Cola (12 ounces) = 39 grams

Mountain Dew (12 ounces) = 46 grams

How much sugar is in kid’s snacks?

Cheerios (1 cup) = 1 gram

Ketchup (1 tablespoon) = 3.7 grams

Graham Cracker (1 rectangular piece) = 4.4 grams

Cheetos (small bag) = 5 grams

Chocolate Chip Cookies (4 cookies) = 9 grams

Nutri-Grain (1 bar) = 13 grams

Pop-Tarts (1 pastry) = 17 grams

Healthy Alternatives to Sugary Snacks

If you’re looking to cut down on your child’s sugar intake, we’ve heard a lot of parents secretly dilute the sodas they give their kids! But if you’ve got yourself a kid with a serious sweet tooth, try some of these alternatives and see what they think!

Cheese: Every 100 grams of cheese contains only about 2.3 grams of sugar. Not only that, but cheese is packed with protein and healthy fats that, when eaten in small amounts, are perfectly healthy to eat!

White Milk: 8 ounces of white milk does contain about 12 grams of sugar. If your child is obsessed with chocolate milk, try using less chocolate powder or syrup over time and getting them used to drinking whole milk. Like cheese, it contains healthy proteins and fats that an active person needs.

Peanut Butter: We’re not going to lie and say that peanut butter is the healthiest food out there. But it is sweet, and it’s only got about 3 grams of sugar in a typical serving of 2 tablespoons. Try spreading some peanut butter on a celery stick, adding 2-3 raisins on top and telling your child it’s called ants on a log!

Fruit: There has been a lot of talk recently about sugar in fruit. And though it’s true that unhealthy sugars exist in dried fruit or fruit juice, whole fruit such as apples and bananas still contain a great amount of fiber and water – which means more hydrated kids with healthier digestive systems.

Goldfish: Apparently the song is true. Goldfish have an impressively low amount of sugar per serving – 0 grams for every 55 pieces! So, if your kid loves to gobble up these cheesy fish-shaped crackers, it’s probably the most okay snack they can have every day.

Raising a child is hard work! And sometimes we’re just happy that they’re eating anything at all. But if you want your kid to grow up strong and healthy, limiting their sugar intake will increase their quality of life and even help them focus better in school.

So, encourage healthy eating! And try to talk to them about the negative health effects of sugar, like gaining weight, losing their permanent teeth and feeling bad or sick when they are older.

Do you have any healthy or sugar-free snacks that your kids love? Share them with Kid’s Dentistree on Facebook or Instagram.

Visit Kid’s Dentistree’s Web site or call (912) 756-5437 to schedule your child’s visit today.

(Pediatric Dentists) Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill shares tips on benefits of summer checkups

Kid’s Dentistree shares the benefits of summer checkups

Kids are out of school for the summer and spending a lot of time at home. When you think of summer vacation, activities like swimming and riding bikes often come to mind. While summer offers plenty of opportunity for outdoor fun, it’s also the perfect time for a dental visit. Here are a few reasons to schedule your child’s checkup over the summer.

When school is out, we often have more flexible schedules.

Normal routines tend to ease up in the summer. Once school returns, our regular routines and extracurriculars will likely hog much of our time, making it more difficult to fit in a dental visit. Take advantage of the more-relaxed summer schedule and make a dental appointment for your child now.

Summer checkups help to avoid pulling your child out of school later.

A study conducted by the Journal of Pediatrics found that children with oral health problems were more likely to miss school and suffer declines in academic performance. If your child is due for a checkup, scheduling your appointment in the summer will help you avoid pulling your child out of school later. If any dental problems are found that require a follow-up visit, you can also take care of treatment before school begins. Depending on your child’s age and grade level, your school may even require proof of a dental checkup when he or she starts.

Summer checkups remind kids to keep on top of their oral health.

As the American Dental Association explains, baby teeth are just as important as adult teeth. With routines more relaxed over the summer, it can be easy to forget to brush twice per day and maintain regular oral hygiene. Summer is also the time when sugary treats like ice cream and freezer pops become favorites. A summer checkup helps to reinforce healthy dental habits.

Ready to schedule? Give Kid’s Dentistree a call.

Regular dental appointments can go a long way toward a healthy smile for your child. If you’re ready to schedule your child’s summer checkup, contact Kid’s Dentistree today.

(Pediatric Dentists) Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill shares tips on teaching kids good oral hygiene

Monday, May 3rd, 2021

Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill, Ga.: Good Habits for Oral Hygiene

Below is a guest post from Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill on good oral health habits that will enable your child to keep their teeth healthy and strong for life!

Build Good Habits Early

For permanent teeth to be healthy and strong it’s crucial to start building good oral health habits at a very young age. These habits include brushing their teeth twice a day for two full minutes, scraping their tongues, and flossing daily. Being consistent with a daily routine will help establish these habits quickly. Besides, you want to keep their baby teeth healthy so that their adult teeth will come in where they should and have a healthy start!

Tactics For Teaching Oral Hygiene

Children love to imitate what their parents do, and they love proving that they are big boys and girls. Aside from letting them watch someone brush their teeth, here are a few other ways to help them form good habits!

Get them excited! Talking up good oral health will help them to get excited about starting to brush their own teeth as well as flossing and eating the right foods.

Let them choose their own “equipment.” When they choose their own toothbrush, it will allow them to take ownership of their oral health, so encourage them to pick out their favorite one!

Use examples! YouTube videos, apps, children’s books, etc., are great examples, other than brushing yourself, to show your child that having good oral health is fun to do!

Praise their successes. If they know you’re proud of them for brushing their teeth, they’ll be proud of themselves and be happier to do it. You might even use a reward system until they get in the habit, like a sticker chart to build up to a prize.

Extra Expertise

If your child is still refusing to brush their teeth, or has a hard time grasping the concept of maintaining good oral health, that’s okay! Every child learns at their own pace. Just be patient and keep trying. You can also come to Kid’s Dentistree for help. Kid’s Dentistree can show your child examples, talk to them, try to find out why they’re not so interested in brushing, and set up a routine with them! They’ll be tooth-brushing pros before you know it.
