As a child the tooth fairy was probably a very fond memory of yours. The all knowing magical fairy that swooped in during a traumatizing time of your life (well, maybe not for you but I was terrified of losing teeth) who took your teeth in exchange for money or small gifts. Sadly one day we grew up realized that it had been our parents or guardian all along.This taught us a great lesson though, kids love the tooth fairy! This February 28th spend some time with your children and have some fun teching them about the tooth fairy!
When you think of the unpleasant things that happen at a dental cleaning, one of the biggest things that comes to mind is bleeding gums. After all the poking and prodding is over there is the inevitable rinse cycle, which for some can look like a bloodbath. These same people might even have the occasional bloody spit after brushing their teeth. This is more common than it needs to be, and can often be fixed by changing a few simple habits in your brushing and flossing.
