Why That Age One Dental Visit is Important

Margolian Dentistry is very much a family-oriented dental clinic, and we always go out of our way to look after little ones. The Canadian Dental Association recommends arranging that first dental visit within six months of your child’s first tooth emerging. We like to see children for their initial dental visit when their first few teeth are erupting and between age one and two years of age. Why See a Dentist in Whitby so Early?

How to Survive Easter Without a Sugar Overload

Over the years, Easter has become irrevocably connected with sweet treats, but this holiday doesn’t have to be this way. Although the stores would like us to believe otherwise, Easter is about far more than merely chocolate. While it is almost inevitable that you and your family will indulge at least a little over this holiday, it is worth concentrating on other, family-oriented activities that don’t involve the sweet stuff. Doing Something Different at Easter Easter can be an excellent opportunity to spend some time with your children doing other activities. For example, there are lots of craft projects online for creating Easter baskets, bonnets or bunny ears. On a rainy day, grab an Easter oriented book to read with your kids and learn about the Easter bunny and spring together. Alternatively, look for Easter-themed recipes and get cooking as a family. There are plenty around that aren’t chocolate-oriented! If…

Your Dental Health Affects Your Child’s Dental Health

As a parent, you want to make sure your child grows up with strong and healthy teeth, but did you realize your oral health can affect your kid? In fact, a child’s oral health is closely connected to their family’s dental health and oral hygiene. If you visit the dentist in Oshawa regularly and maintain an excellent oral hygiene routine, it can greatly increase the chances that your child will grow up with excellent oral health. This can affect a young baby from age 6 months onward because when children are born, they don’t have lots of cavity-causing bacteria in their mouths.

Does Your Kid Grind Their Teeth at Night?

If so, then you might have wondered how it is possible that such a small person can make so much noise. Teeth grinding, and clenching can sound awful, but in fact, this nocturnal habit is relatively common in young children. It is estimated two or three out of every ten children will grind their teeth and the medical term for this condition is bruxism. The good news is that most will eventually outgrow the habit without needing any treatment, but in the meantime, it is essential to ensure the habit isn’t causing damage to their teeth and jaws. Why Do Children Grind Their Teeth? It isn’t exactly known why some children will grind their teeth, but one possible reason is misaligned teeth. Some children will grind because they are stressed or anxious, or because they are in pain. Another possible cause is hyperactivity, a reaction to medications, or cerebral palsy.…
