I brush everyday, why do I still get cavities?

I brush everyday, why do I still get cavities?

Don’t get me wrong, excellent home care and routine dental check ups are an absolute must to preventing dental disease but there is more to the story. Dentists have historically been terrible at explaining and educating patients. Growing up my dentist would walk in, say you have 3 cavities and walk out. The good news is that we are in the middle of a paradigm shift in our profession, the new generation of dentists are prioritizing education and prevention.

Do Kids Need to Floss?

Do Kids Need to Floss?

“We frequently get asked, ‘Do my kids need to floss?’“, says Dr. Rubin. “Many young kiddos have large spaces between their teeth. Yes, you still need to brush! Yes, you still need to floss! It’s actually easier to floss if there’s space between the teeth, but don’t forget about the back teeth. Many times those teeth don’t have any space between them and that’s where food gets caught. To floss you can either use handy, disposable floss sticks that come in all shapes, colors and sizes, or you can also use traditional string floss that you wrap around your fingers.”

Importance of Dental Visits during Pregnancy

Importance of Dental Visits during Pregnancy

Let’s face it, when you are an expecting mom you have a pretty busy schedule. When my wife was pregnant with our daughter, I recall every other week having an OB visit, a specialist visit, or a trip to the chiropractor to help with the sciatica. In the midst of all the appointments and busy schedule, something that slipped our minds completely was my wife’s dental check ups. It didn’t hit us until she started complaining of severe gum pain and bleeding from her gums. I am especially embarrassed by this because as a dentist I know how important dental check ups are for expecting moms. I immediately took her to my office and did a thorough evaluation of her gums and teeth, as I suspected she was going through some severe pregnancy gingivitis.

Frisco Kids Dentistry: How to end your child’s ‘sucking habits’

Frisco Kids Dentistry: How to end your child’s ‘sucking habits’

Sucking is a natural reflex! Newborns start life with a sucking instinct to seek food or comfort, some even suck on their fingers while in the womb. While some infants are satisfied through feedings, it is normal behavior for babies and young children to seek a sense of comfort, security or relaxation by sucking their thumbs, fingers, fists, pacifiers or other objects they can place in their mouth. Most children naturally stop these ‘sucking habits’ around the age of 2-4 years old.

Questions to ask when looking for a Cosmetic Dentist

Not just any Dentist Office: Frisco Dental Studio

Frisco Dental Studio was born with the commitment that the patient experience and patient relationship will always come first. The reason I am so passionate about this is because despite being a dentist, I am deathly afraid of all dental visits. I have had my fair share of dental treatments so I have spent a lot of time in the patient chair. I know first hand the anxiety that a lot of patients feel when they come to see the dentist. So when I designed my office, I made sure it doesn’t look or feel like a typical dentist office. Here are just a few unique amenities we have incorporated to reimagine the dental experience:

Coterie: The Game-Changing Diaper Our Moms Are Loving!

Coterie: The Game-Changing Diaper Our Moms Are Loving!

As moms, we try to savor every moment we can with our kids. But there are some moments that are a little harder to appreciate than others. Diapering our babies often falls into that category (sandwiched between lack of sleep and toddler tantrums, ha!). That’s why we are thrilled to be sharing all about Coterie, a baby care brand that is making parents’ lives easier through *noticeably* better diapers. Think: incredibly absorbent, soft-as-cashmere and basically blow-out proof. Essentially, they’re the unicorn of disposable diapers. They also just won The Bump’s Best Diaper Award.

Anxiety in Children

Anxiety in Children

Anxiety can affect a child’s school performance, family life, and, last but not least, can cause physical symptoms. Children with anxiety can have constant aches and pains, tummy aches, headaches, poor sleep, no appetite, and they can refuse to go to school. Anxiety can cause a child to be irritable or withdrawn but also sometimes aggressive and irritable. If you think your child has anxiety, don’t wait for it to go away on its own. Most of the time, it will not resolve without help.

Healing Philosophy with Dr Alina

Healing Philosophy with Dr Alina

Dr. Alina believes that healing is multilayered and multifaceted. There isn’t a one-size fits all cure or treatment. At Whole Child Texas, our approach is slightly different from traditional medicine. We are not focused on just treating disease and symptoms; we treat the whole child by addressing all aspects of a child’s health—mind, body, emotions, spirit, family and parenting.

We said it before, but it bears repeating—back to school prep is best done in advance, and is a two-part process. We like to get the ordering of supplies (from pencils to labels)  out of the way in early Summer, so that we’re not hustling (and paying for express shipping!) in August. Then, late summer can be spent prepping ourselves and our kids for what’s to come (last minute bucket list trips, picking first day outfits, getting back on sleep schedules, etc.).
