Dental Tips for a Healthy Mouth!

Make oral health part of your Back-to-School routine with these tips:


Put a toothbrush on your list of back-to-school supplies.  Toothbrushes should be changed every 3 months or after an illness.


Save sweets for mealtimes. They are less likely to harm your child’s teeth, as saliva flow is greater then.


Snack smart. 

        - CHOOSE milk or water over pop or juice

- CHOOSE vegetables, fruit, cheese or yogurt

- AVOID soft, sticky sweets that get stuck in your child’s teeth

        - AVOID sugary treats that stay in the mouth for a long time, like lollipops or hard candy

Spring Tips

Dental Tips for a Healthy Mouth!

Dry mouth, or xerostomia, is reduced or no saliva flow.  Not having enough saliva can increase your risk of decay and oral infections, as well as affect your ability to taste, chew and swallow food.

Dry mouth is most commonly caused by medications, but can also result from chemotherapy, radiation therapy, or certain medical conditions. Smoking, alcohol, mouth-breathing and snoring can aggravate dry mouth.

Tips for dealing with dry mouth:

- sip water frequently throughout the day; avoid pop, juice or sports drinks

- use sugar-free gum or lozenges, preferably containing xylitol

- use over-the-counter saliva substitutes

- use an alcohol-free mouth rinse with fluoride

- limit caffeine, alcohol and tobacco use

- brush with a fluoride toothpaste twice daily; gently brush the tongue

- floss

- see your dentist regularly for check-ups and cleanings
