At Oral Health Associates, we understand that having a healthy smile starts from day one – when a child is first born. From that day forward, it’s important to clean your baby’s gums – even if his or her teeth haven’t erupted yet. When the teeth finally erupt, you’ll need to brush them for your child as well. This may be a new process for some, so as your trusted baby dentist and kid’s dentist in Green Bay, WI, we’d like to help explain how to best brush your baby’s teeth.

Protecting Your Teeth During Physical Activity

When it comes to keeping your body healthy, regular exercise is one of the most powerful things you can do. Exercising regularly helps to strengthen your body, improving critical things like cardiovascular health and bone density while lowering your risk for problems like heart disease. Unfortunately, though, physical activity—indoors or outdoors—also carries a risk for your smile. Physical activity of any kind increases the risk of trauma to the teeth, which is bad news for the health and beauty of your smile. But with some thought and care, you can protect your teeth during exercise and keep both your body and your smile healthy and strong.
