"New research finds that brushing the teeth three or more times a day significantly reduces the risk of atrial fibrillation and heart failure."
An e-cigarette turns the chemicals from the cartridge into a very fine vapor which then penetrates deep into the lung, deeper than regular cigarettes do. There are many risks with this kind of vaporization of chemicals. Risks which scientists are still trying to understand.

Choosing a fluoride or fluoride-free toothpaste for your child is a common question that parents have. Fluoride strengthens the tooth enamel preventing cavity formation but if too much fluoride is ingested, it can cause fluorosis, the development of brown spots on teeth. Because of the dangers of accidental ingestion, we suggest that parents use a fluoride-free toothpaste for toddlers until they are able to spit out the toothpaste without swallowing any of it.

When to schedule your child's first appointment is a legitimate question. Many parents wait until their child begins to experience oral tenderness or decay. However, our suggestion would be to make an appointment after the child's first tooth erupts. This will introduce the child to the dentist and help to create a comfortable environment and a pleasant experience with the dentist.
