Athletes, remember: mouthguards should be worn for any sport that has potential for a hit to the face. I’ve seen fractured teeth from basketball, hockey, snow skiing, water skiing, biking, baseball, and football. My son even got a tooth knocked out sledding (no, he wasn’t wearing a mouthguard!).
A mouthguard can significantly reduce damage to teeth or prevent damage altogether. A simple boil and bite athletic guard from a sporting goods store is very effective, however if you want one that is more comfortable and custom-fit, we would be happy to make one for you.
Showing my boys around the University of Montana, where I received my undergraduate degree.
I just returned from Boise, Idaho, where I learned more about how to help my patients who have sleep apnea or snoring problems. I can make an oral appliance that is comfortable, effective and custom.
This can work wonderfully for patients who need an alternative to CPAP. Ask me if it could work for you.
Does your baby like to have his teeth brushed? Neither does ours! But we do it anyway. We are the parents, and we know what is best. Be firm and get it done. He’ll get used to it!
When do you start brushing Baby’s teeth? As soon as he has them!
Use a grain-of-rice-size amount of children’s toothpaste with flouride and a child-size toothbrush. We’ll give you both at your child’s next appointment. A sample-size tube of toothpaste will last your baby a year!
From our family to yours, Merry Christmas!
