The tooth fairy is beloved among children! For most, she’s a tutu-clad fairy with a tooth-shaped wand who rewards children with treats in exchange for lost teeth. Parents can use this excitement and interest in the tooth fairy to teach their children about the importance of oral health and caring for their teeth.

We know that first visits to the dentist’s office can be stressful for kids; dental visits can even be stressful for grown-ups! However, even if your child finds the dentist to be a scary experience, it’s still important to bring them in for regular checkups and to put them at ease here in our office. This will not only allow us to care for their baby teeth but will also help them establish a foundation for good oral health habits for the rest of their lives.

Seizures are a hallmark of epilepsy and are also the reason why so many epileptic sufferers will need to make visits to the dentist.

Wisdom teeth begin to grow in between the ages of 17-22. This set of teeth is also known as the third molars and are the last set of teeth to erupt. If wisdom teeth grow in properly and are correctly aligned, they won’t cause a problem. But it’s much more common for the wisdom teeth to come in incorrectly and cause crowding, which means they will need to be removed.
