After School Snacks Your Kids - and Their Teeth - Will Love
Here's some great after school snacks that are healthy for your child's teeth too!

Peanut Butter Dip with Fruits and Veggies
Pairing peanut butter dip with snack-sized veggies and fruit will make for a tasty and tooth-friendly afternoon snack. Simply add 3/4 cups of plain Greek yogurt to 1/2 cup of peanut butter, and add some flavor with 1/2 teaspoon of cinnamon. The fresh fruits and vegetables will help to scrub your child's teeth without adding sticky sugars.

Cheese and Nut Plate
Cheese and nuts are great foods for healthy teeth, and your child will love an assortment after a long day of school. Cheese is high in calcium, which will create strong teeth, and nuts are high-protein and low in sugar, which can also keep your child's mouth healthy.

A Child's Diet Can Prevent Cavities
A diet high in sugar, as we all know, causes cavities. But did you know that encouraging your child to consume certain types of food could help to prevent cavities? The most important foods for your child to eat are those that are high in fiber because of their saliva producing properties. The more saliva that a child produces, the higher the chances of bacteria being washed away. This can help to prevent cavities from occurring. Almost any type of fruit or vegetable will help the production of saliva, giving your child a large variety of delicious foods to choose from in order to keep the cavities at bay.

Dental Anxiety Can Also Affect Your Children
To you, going to the dentist may be no big deal. You have a great relationship and things in your mouth are super healthy. However, to your child, going to the dentist may not be so easy. They may fear the idea of coming in for a cleaning, x-rays, or a filling. If you notice that your child stops telling you they have a toothache, doesn't feel good before a visit, or tells you flat-out they are nervous, call our office. We have helped other children face their dental anxiety and win, and we can help your child, too!

Our treatment philosophy centers around each child's individual needs and concerns to create a gentle and caring approach that works for that child.
