Halloween Candy Season | Watch Those Crowns!


Don’t get spooked this Halloween with an emergency visit to the dentist! Now listen. We don’t expect ya’ll to skip the Halloween treats altogether, but there are some reasonable ways to avoid an unwanted dental bill and the extra pain associated with a cracked tooth or filling. Although dental fillings, sealants and crowns are tough enough to withstand cavities, they aren’t indestructible. They can become loose if taffy, caramel, jawbreakers, or popcorn kernels get stuck in unwanted places.

The Genius Behind Floss


Most of us have never been more grateful for dental floss than after a family BBQ that involves corn on the cob. Who was the genius that thought it was a good idea to stick a piece of wax between teeth to dislodge trapped food? Believably, humans have been using tools and strings and fingernails, surely, to get rid of unwanted food in their teeth for hundreds of years.

Kids walk into schools each morning chugging Celsius, Monster, Red Bull, Bang and Rockstar in an effort to stay attentive in class; interns sip on 5 Hour Energy cans to meet deadlines, and athletes guzzle energy fuel to help enhance their performance.

Tooth Fairy Tales


Being the tooth fairy is no small feat. You must be sneaky, snatching teeth from under pillows and replacing the object with treats. Depending on how often kids lose teeth, this could amount to 20 visits from the magical creature.
