Osteoporosis – Your Dentist May be the First to Know

As most of us know, women aged 50 and older are prone to osteoporosis, a condition that is often difficult to detect before bone density becomes critically low. In fact most patients are not diagnosed until a fracture occurs as a result of decreased bone density.

What to Expect From Your Middle Aged Mouth

Over the years you may have seen several dentists and had lots of work done on your teeth.

What You Need to Know About Pacifiers (Soothers)

It is normal for babies to suck because it helps them relax. Dentists generally recommend that you avoid, where possible, using a pacifier and also discourage thumb sucking. Both these habits can eventually cause problems with how your baby's teeth grow and develop. This may result in your child needing orthodontic work like braces when they get older.
