You know the importance of regularly scheduled dental cleanings. As an adult, you may even have a fairly established routine for the day of your appointments. You may feel tempted to go into the office, have the cleaning performed, and go home without thinking about the event any further.

However, your routine dental cleanings are an important part of keeping your smile healthy. The next time you have a cleaning scheduled, use the measures outlined below to ensure that you benefit as much as possible from your visit.

Child that has an emergency dental kitMany wise people have medical first-aid kits in their homes, offices, and vehicles. These thoughtful, practical folks pride themselves on being ready for medical emergencies wherever they go. While first-aid kits offer a limited selection of items that are helpful during dental emergencies, the contents of most kits fall short when it comes to handling the most common critical dental issues.

There are a number of smart reasons to have a dental emergency kit. Most importantly, dental emergencies happen to people of all ages. Whether you live alone or have a large family, it’s a sensible plan to assemble a few items in case you have a tooth-related crisis. With a dental emergency kit, you’ll be prepared to manage the situation until you’re able to see the dentist.

Teens, Bulimia, And Oral Health: A Guide For Parents

Written by Crest Hill Family Dental on . Posted in Blog

oralhealthguideWhen you think about eating disorders and their impact on health, the first problems that come to mind might be brittle bones, weak muscles, and perhaps heart conditions. But one eating disorder in particular can also have devastating effects on oral health. Bulimia, a condition in which patients binge on large amounts of food before purging—often by vomiting—affects about 1.5% of women and 0.5% of men over their lifetimes. It’s most common in teens, so as the parent of a teenager, it’s important that you’re informed about this condition and how it can affect your child’s dental health for the rest of his or her life.
