I think my baby is teething, what should I expect?

Teething can be a challenging time for any parent. This article will go through some signs to look out for if your baby is teething and what can be done to help.

They are only baby teeth, they will just fall out!

We hear this far too often, that baby teeth will fall out so we need to be less concerned about decay than we would in adult teeth. This is in fact not the case, the development of the baby teeth is really critical for the development of the adult teeth. So this article will explain why it is so important to get issues checked out as soon as possible.

How do neurological disorders in kids impact dental treatment and maintenance?

Some neurological disorders, such as Autism Spectrum Disorder (ASD) and Attention Deficit Hyperactivity Disorder (ADHD), can have a profound impact on kids overall dental health. This will often be due to the inability to get them to brush their teeth, often due to sensory issues. It also can lead to difficulty in getting them to visit the dentist, again often due to sensory issues. In this article we will explore some of the reasons for this and some solutions to help parents through this challenging problem
