All About Pediatric Dentists

Hi guys –

Dr. C here again. Today I wanted to talk about pediatric dentists. I get the question a lot about the importance of pediatrics when it comes to children and medical professionals. For those of you who don’t know what pediatrics is, its is defined as a branch of medicine (medical professionals) dealing with children and their diseases. Pediatric dentists are just that – the pediatric of dentists. They specialize in infants, children and those with special needs. Patients ask me ‘what should I take my child to see a pediatric dentist vs family dentist’ the reality is you can take your child to either one. Pediatric dentists however deal with children 24-7 and are trained to handle a child in any situation. For the child’s comfort, I suggest taking them into a pediatric dentist to help them adapt to the idea of medical professionals and dentists. Once they are old enough, switch them over to a family dentist if you so desire.

The main goal is to make sure your child is comfortable. If you have a great family dentist you think can make your child feel comfortable you can go that route no problem! Again, we just suggest the pediatric dentists due to the child’s comfort as well as their expertise and special training in children’s dentistry.

Until next time folks, chow!

Foods To Eat For Healthy Lifestyle

Being as I have been in the medical industry for so long as well as the dental industry I have gotten a lot of questions throughout my time. One of the frequently asked questions I get from dental patients is ‘what foods should I eat to help promote healthy teeth/lifestyle?’ What you put into your body is so vastly important. I thought I would share with you some foods that you should be consuming to promote not only healthy teeth but a healthy lifestyle as well.

  • Tea – helps to wash away and reduce plaque build up
  • Cheese – neutralizes plaque acid
  • Crunchy Foods – in limitation, the crush helps as a cleansing mechanism
  • Raisins – known to kill cavity causing bacteria
  • Sugarless Gum – helps to remove plaque build up and activates saliva secretion
  • Almonds & Greens – high in vitamins
  • Milk – neutralizes acid produced from plaque bacteria

Stay tuned for more great info from the medical professionals here at Clifford’s Tower!
