Stop Zombie Mouth!

The Surgeon General has deemed tooth decay as the number one leading chronic disease in children in the US – five times more common than asthma and seven times more common than hay fever. To put an end to childhood tooth decay, Jordan Dentistry wants you to take the first step, and that begins with educating your children on the importance of good oral health.

Scary Tooth FactsTrade Out Sweet for Savory

Halloween is the second most profitable holiday in the US – ranking after Christmas. A lot of that profit comes from the 600 million pounds of candy that Americans buy from their grocery stores and convenience stores to hand out to the trick-or-treaters on Halloween night. Instead of contributing to the candy profits – and obesity and poor oral health – make a different decision this year. Buy prepackaged natural snacks to hand out to trick-or-treaters instead of the traditional sweets.

Emphasize the Importance of Brushing

If you can help your children understand the importance of brushing twice a day for two minutes, they will be more likely to get it done. To help remember their full two minute brushing routine, get them a toothbrush that either has a song that plays or  a timer to count down to when their full two minutes is up.

These are just two basic things you can do for your kids in the upcoming weeks to help us band together and stop zombie mouth for the kids in our lives.  Call today to schedule a regular cleaning for your kids with Dr. Jordan at our family dentist office in Cumming, Georgia.
