There is so much to think about when you have an infant that it can be overwhelming to keep track of it all! One of the areas you may not give much thought to in the early days is their oral health. 

Choosing between breast and bottle feeding is a highly personal decision. While breastfeeding tends to reduce the incidence of tooth decay, in and of itself, it does not guarantee good oral health for your child. So whether you breastfeed or bottle feed your baby, you need to clean your child’s gums and baby teeth to keep them cavity-free, and your Metairie children's dentist will be happy to show ...

Researchers at Northwest University of Nationalities in Lanzhou, China conducted a study of 405 children between the ages of 9 and 13 to investigate the effect that family structure in general and the presence of siblings, in particular, has on kids' oral health.

It’s a common mistake to think that modern dentures have anything in common with the heavy, fake-looking versions used decades ago. Dentures way back when were considered to be purely functional because they were better than having no teeth, and they even restored some function. 

A Lot Has Changed about Dentures

But a lot has changed in dentistry since your grandparents wore their dentures. Materials are lighter and more natural-looking, and since dentists understand more about jaw growth, full and partial dentures today are designed to fit more comfortably.

Appearance

Back in the day, dentists were limited by materials and had to make do with what was available. There wasn’t much customization possible, ...
