Do you have a hard time getting your child to brush their teeth? This is a very common struggle that parents have, so you are not alone. Let’s get them brushing and flossing twice a day! Our Hygienists can help during their regular dental visit. Many children (including teens) that we see on a routine basis, have fair to poor oral hygiene. We like to remind older kids that the adult teeth they have now are the last set they will ever get. When they leave plaque and bacteria on teeth it makes the tooth weak and when a cavity starts it’s a hole in the tooth, which is decay.
Make a squeezable homemade toothpaste that's safe for kids (and in flavors they love) with our simple recipe. Making homemade kid-friendly squeezable toothpaste can be a fun project to do with your kids. It’s an all-natural recipe that you can feel good about your children using and one that promotes healthy teeth and gums.
Itchy gums can be irritating especially if you don’t know the cause. Itchy gums can be the sign of many different oral conditions including allergies, gum disease, or even a dry mouth. If you or your child have itchy gums, call us to schedule an appointment at our dental office in Broken Arrow. We can diagnose and treat underlying oral diseases or conditions that cause itchy gums.
We’ve noticed some patients coming in with brown spots on their teeth. Some mouthwashes can cause this type of staining. This is due to a chemical called chlorhexidine gluconate — an antiseptic designed to reduce bacteria and remove plaque. If you or your child have brown spots anywhere on the teeth, schedule an appointment at our dental office in Broken Arrow.
