From a single tooth to a full arch of teeth, we can replace any number of teeth, roots and crowns, with natural looking, feeling, and functioning dental implant posts that mimic the root structures of lost teeth. There have been numerous technological advancements in dental care over the past decades, but none matches the innovative dental implant. If you’re missing one or more teeth and you’d like to find out more about implant supported tooth replacement, please don’t hesitate to contact the Medina dental practice of Allan J. Milewski, DDS.

February is National Children’s Dental Health Month!

I have safely navigated the teenage years three times.  If you have had teenagers yourself, you know what I mean when I say “safely navigated”.  Life with a teenager sometimes feels a lot like being a submarine captain…you really can’t see where you are going, and there are potential minefields everywhere. Teenagers of course,  know everything and don’t hesitate to let you know that they are right and you, an experienced adult, are invariably wrong.  Having been through this stage in my kid’s lives three times, I can assure you that eventually this, like all stages, will pass and that one day you will actually be wise again.  It just takes a while.

Merry Entire Smiling Family Brushing Their Teeth

The part that gets me though, is how often my kids as teenagers were actually right. They were children raised with the internet, and had at their fingertips the answer to almost any question they could ask. Information to them is only a keystroke away. They live in a world that changes at warp speed and they move right along with it.

The challenge always lies in convincing  them that the more things change, the more things stay the same. This is true in life and it is true in  Dentistry.  Dentistry can advance techniques,  equipment and knowledge, but basic hygiene habits still create the foundation of good dental health.  Brushing at least twice a day with fluoridated toothpaste, flossing daily without fail, eating a  diet low in both  sugar and high acid foods are habits that if established when your child is young, will help guard against serious problems when they are older.  Cosmetic dentistry, whitening and smile makeovers are all great advancements…but none of it matters if you don’t brush and floss.

Februrary is  National Children’s Dental Health Month.  Give your kids a hug and remind them to floss and brush. And whether your child is  four, fourteen or forty-four, pat yourself on the back for surviving parenthood.  You’ve earned it!

Here’s to The Parents!

February 8, 2011

Parents form a bond with one another. A bond that doesn’t need words, but instantly elicits understanding and sympathy.  Just say the words “Science Project” and parents will start to twitch. Say “Sleepover” and any parent will suddenly feel sleep deprived.

Say “Drivers Permit” and every parent who has ever put their foot through the floorboard of their car pressing on an imaginary break will start to sweat.  February is Children’s Dental Health month, but I’d like to send a shout out to their parents. You have one of the hardest jobs in the world.  In an effort to make things a little easier, here are a few tips on helping your children keep their smiles healthy and bright.

A healthy smile starts young.  Don’t let your baby fall asleep with a bottle, and limit sugary juices.  Even before you see their first tooth, wipe your baby’s gums with a clean piece of moistened gauze or washcloth after feeding. Take your baby for their first dental visit within six months of their first tooth erupting. Make sure their first visits are enjoyable, setting the tone for a lifetime of visits to the dentist.

As your child grows, encourage healthy snacks and drinks. Supervise young children in brushing their teeth twice a day, and as they get older, check how well they’ve brushed. Use a fluoridated toothpaste and brush at least twice a day.  Kids are high tech…they love electric toothbrushes which often have a built in timer.  As your children grow, be sure they floss. Consider sealants to guard against decay.  Set an example by taking great care of your own teeth and gums.  And be sure that your entire family visits the dentist at least twice a year for a professional cleaning and examination.

One of the best parts of being a dentist is getting to treat so many great kids, watching them grow up and being a part of their lives! I know being a parent isn’t easy, but it can be very rewarding!  Here’s to you, the parents who make it all happen.  You’re doing a wonderful job!  And if you need any ideas for a Dental Science Project, give me a call.  I know a couple of great ones!
