Great tip:  until your children can demonstrate to you that they can tie their own shoes, they're not ready to brush their own teeth.    Kids simply don't have the dexterity yet to hit every tooth surface properly until they're able to tie their shoes, and who wants to deal with cavities being filled as a result of poor dental care? www.dentalcapecod.com www.facebook.com/DAOCC https://twitter.com/DentalCapeCod

This is a perfect picture to show to your patients on how a cavity started between the teeth where only the floss can clean. The cavity grew all the way down into the nerve which caused the tooth to hurt and could only be treated with either a root canal or to remove the tooth.

"My teeth don't hurt, so they must be healthy." FALSE: Even if your teeth don't hurt, you can still have decay or other dental problems that can cause pain later!

It's a general practice to put dental exams on the bottom of our to-do list unless we have some oral problem, but we should be more conscious about our overall health.
