Kid’s Dentistree’s Tips for Keeping a Healthy Smile During the Holidays

It’s that time of year again! The holidays come chock-full of festive social gatherings, sweet treats and gift-giving. With all the commotion that often surrounds the season, it’s easy to see how taking care of your teeth could fall to the bottom of the priority list. Kid’s Dentistree in Richmond Hill is offering a few tips on how you can keep your smile healthy during the holidays.

Stick to Routine

Even though there is a lot going on over the holidays, MouthHealthy.org, an ADA website, suggests maintaining a regular routine of brushing two times a day. If you are due for a cleaning or dental work, be sure to schedule and keep your appointment.

Be Selective

With so many tempting treats, it’s probably unrealistic to suggest avoiding sweets altogether. However, MouthHealthy.org tells us that eating sugary foods with or shortly after meals increases saliva production, which helps to cancel out acids and rinse away food particles. Also be sure to drink a lot of water, especially when eating dried fruits like cranberries, which tend to stick to your teeth. Finally, try to limit starchy foods, which can break down into sugars.

Protect Your Teeth

Try to avoid using your teeth as a substitute for proper tools. For example, use a nutcracker to crack the hard shells of nuts before eating, a bottle opener to remove bottle caps and scissors to remove stubborn ribbons. If you do damage a tooth, be sure to make an appointment as soon as possible to keep the problem from getting worse.

Happy Holidays!

For whatever you are celebrating this season, the Kid’s Dentistree team wishes you and your family a safe, joyful and healthy holiday.

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

(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.

(Savannah dentists) A child’s 1st dental visit should be by age one

Pediatric Dentists Savannah Krista Hinchey Dogwood Smiles

“Get it done in year one!”  

A child’s first dental visit should be by age ONE. 

That’s the message from Dr. Krista Hinchey @ Dogwood Pediatric Dentistry of Savannah & The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry.

Dr. Krista Hinchey reiterates AAPD’s recommendation that infants need to see the dentist before their 1st birthday.

Studies show that dental costs for children who have their first dental visit before age one are 40 percent lower in the first five years than for those who do not see a dentist prior to their first birthday, Dr. Krista said.

See the AAPD’s recommendation here.
