Now that summer is about to end and fall about to start, parents and kids alike are often in that "back to school" rush.  Mornings are often busy times as the family is getting ready for school and work.  Try to take a few minutes of everyone's time to sufficiently brush for at least 2 minutes in the mornings. A good measure would be to try singing the ABCD song 2 times.  By the time the song is over, the brushing is done!

Then in the evenings, try and repeat the 2 minute brush cycle.  With a regular routine set aside, brushing becomes "automatic" and promotes healthy gums and teeth :)

Pregnancy and Dental Visits

As I see more and more pregnant women in the Bellevue, WA and Redmond area, I have found that pregnant women sometimes tend to neglect their own dental health.   They may delay or ignore their dental cleanings or treatment due to their pregnancy.   It is important to not only the mom-to-be, but also to the unborn baby, to continue with routine cleanings and careful management of dental decay and infection. Long term studies have shown pregnant women who do not take care of their dental health are at an increase risk for having an early premature delivery, which in turn increases the risk of having a low-birthweight baby. 

By working very closely with your primary care physician and obstetrician/gynecologists your dentist will work to ensure your oral health is at satisfactory so that mom and baby will be healthy and happy!
