When should you bring your child to their first dental visit? Your friends at Smiles at SummerHill Dental in Newmarket, ON, share some tips!
It is crucial to bring your child within 6 months of the first tooth's eruption or by one year of age. Getting your kid comfortable with the dentist early on will teach them good habits about taking care of their oral health.
At Smiles at SummerHill Dental, we are dedicated to treating the dental needs of children of all ages in a kind and caring manner! A full evaluation of your child's dietary history, dental health, and cavity risk, followed by a suggested oral homecare techniques program, nutritional guidance, and fluoride use, is included in our children's dental visits. The earlier the dental visit, the higher the chance that your child has a cavity-free childhood. Call now for more information!

Is Bad "Mask Breath" A Thing?
Lately, Smiles at SummerHill Dental team in Newmarket, Ontario, has received messages from patients and the community regarding "bad breath" while wearing a face mask.
So, what is bad mask breath, and how to get rid of it?
Here's the thing, bad breath is not something caused by wearing a face mask. The sad news is that it was always there!
Halitosis, the medical name for bad breath, is a thing mints and mouthwash can't solve. And it is different from the "morning breath," a strong smell that lingers after a tuna sandwich.
Halitosis is caused by certain foods, tobacco products, poor dental hygiene, health problems, dry mouth, oral infections, dental problems, or medications.
Our team of dental professionals in Newmarket, Ontario, put together our top 5 tips for managing and preventing "bad breath."
- Brush your teeth and use mouthwash twice a day.
- Don't forget to brush or scrape your tongue.
- Visit your dentist for dental cleanings and check-ups.
- Make water your favourite drink.
- Say goodbye to habits such as smoking and tobacco products.
