This Weeks Oral Health Message to you from Dr. Max:


"Hi this is Dr. Max,

It is extremely important that your children begin to develop healthy dental habits at a very young age.  Good habits vs. bad habits can determine how strong and healthy your children’s teeth become as they grow into adulthood. Your child’s oral hygiene is somewhat related to your own. If you share eating utensils or put their pacifier in your mouth in order to “clean” it, you are actually transferring bacteria from you to them, likewise when you kiss them on the lips!  Generally speaking if you are at high risk for tooth decay, these unhealthy habits will increase the risk of your child experiencing tooth decay. Make sure that your child is brushing at least twice a day and flossing to remove the bacterial film that collects on their teeth which can lead to tooth decay and gum disease.

Thank you for visiting our site.  I hope to see you in the office soon!"
