Exploring Dental Tool Improvements

Hi, it's Mia Armonde here to talk to you about family dentistry. As my small family grew into a large one, I found myself at the dental office on a regular basis. Every six months, the kids would go into the dentist for a cleaning or repairs to their teeth. During that time, I took an interest in the various ways the dental tools were evolving. Tools used in the dental industry have grown in leaps and bounds in the last few decades. For example, my kids went from hearing the dental drill to wearing headphones that completely canceled out the sound. Each time we go back into the dentist, I take a close look at the improvements that have arisen since the last visit. The results are astounding. I will cover my findings on this site, so you can also enjoy the improvements to dental tools and techniques.

How "Dental Week" Can Help Teach Your Family About Good Dental Care Habits

Dentist Blog

If you are concerned that your children aren't taking their oral hygiene serous enough, you may want to make it dental week in your house. This can be a great way for you to get everyone in the household on the same page when it comes to proper oral care. This article will explain how to make it dental week at your house to decrease the chances of your family experiencing dental issues.

Inform every one of the dates ahead of time

Let everyone in your family know you're going to be having a dental week and let them know when the dates will be. This way, you know everyone will be home for the entire week.

Prepare the necessary supplies

You want to have all the supplies you'll need throughout the week to teach everyone more about dental care, such as printed information on dental conditions and how to avoid them. You also want to gather all the necessary dental care products, which include:

  • Different types of toothbrushes including regular toothbrushes and electric toothbrushes. You will also need soft, medium and hard bristled toothbrushes.
  • Dental floss and dental floss picks.
  • A water pick with all the necessary attachments.
  • A pack of sugarless gum.
  • A candy bar and other sweets with the sugar content listed on the package.

Teach a lesson each day

Each day at around the same time, you want everyone to gather in one place for a dental care lesson. Research your topics ahead of time and print out facts, figures and pictures.

Cover topics including choosing the right type of toothbrush, such as a soft one for sensitive gums or a hard one for stubborn plaque. Explain how to properly use the different types of floss and show your family how to properly use a water pick to give their teeth an extra-good cleaning. Explain that chewing gum is a great way to help clean teeth when they don't have access to dental supplies because the gum pulls out trapped food particles.

On other days of the week, you can go over how to prevent dental problems, such as cavities and tooth decay. Show your family the content information for the sweets your family has a hard time staying away from.

Go into detail about the different types of dentists, such as orthodontists and children's specialists, and explain some of the problems the different dentists take care of.

Having a dental week in your household will help your children and other family members to understand the importance of taking good care of their teeth. For more tips, visit websites like http://www.childrensdent.com.
