Did you know that a child's first dental exam should take place within 6 months after his or her first tooth erupts or around his or her first birthday? At this visit, we look for early signs of decay, evaluate how teeth are coming in and share oral hygiene tips. Call our office today to schedule your child's first dental exam!
Bad breath isn't just embarrassing— it can also be a symptom of underlying health problems. Some of the causes of bad breath include:
* Eating foods such as garlic or onions
* Oral bacteria that feed on the food you eat
* Poor saliva production
* Periodontal (gum) disease
* Gastroesophageal reflux disease (GERD)
If you suffer from chronic bad breath, talk to us at your next visit, or call us today to schedule an appointment!
