Tips for clean teeth

The Tooth Fairy’s Tips for Clean Teeth

The Tooth Fairy Says:

“Start taking care of little teeth early in life.”

Even though kids don’t lose their baby teeth until around age 6, it’s still a great idea to introduce them to the Tooth Fairy early on. This can help them get excited about brushing and flossing, so that their teeth will be clean and healthy by the time they lose them.

“Money and presents are great motivators.”

Let’s face it, the appeal of finding money under their pillow is sure to encourage kids to take care of their teeth. But the Tooth Fairy can also leave little gifts that reinforce good oral hygiene, such as a new toothbrush or toothpaste.

“Make it more fun!”

There are a surprising number of mobile apps that bring the Tooth Fairy to life. While not all of them directly promote oral hygiene, teaching your kids about the Tooth Fairy will motivate them to take better care of their teeth so they can deliver pearly whites to her.

Happy St. Patrick”s Day

How to be Healthy on St. Patrick’s Day!

In honor of St. Patrick’s Day approaching, here are some new, fun ways to celebrate all day long—without sacrificing the health of you or your teeth!

  1. Stay sharp: If you’ll be wearing your finest green clothes, make sure your breath is fresh and clean too. Always brush for two full minutes, floss, and use some mouthwash (green spearmint perhaps?) before leaving the house.
  2. Get going: Start the day with a healthy and festive green smoothie. Throw in your favorite green ingredients, like spinach, green apples, avocados, and kale, mixed with bananas and coconut milk, and you’re ready to go!
  3. Get crafty: There are lots of fun crafts you can make with your kids for St. Patrick’s day. Use some green construction paper to make shamrocks for around the house, color your own rainbows and add a pot of gold, or use toilet paper rolls and construction paper to make your own leprechauns.
  4. Get snacking: Make shamrock chips out of spinach tortillas by using a shamrock cookie cutter. Bake the chips in the oven at 400°F for 5-7 minutes, or until crisp. Serve with a rainbow of vegetables, like bell peppers, carrots, cabbage and cauliflower.                                                                                                                                   -Dr. ShakooriSt
