Oral Rinses: An Extra Measure Of Protection For Timonium Kids

Oral Rinses: An Extra Measure Of Tooth Protection For East Bel Air Kids

Hello, I’m Steve Haywood. East Bel Air parents usually know the basics on children’s oral health: limit sugar, make sure they brush and floss regularly, take them to the dentist for twice-yearly exams and cleanings, discourage between-meal snacking, see that they get enough calcium and Vitamin D, etc. Many Maryland parents also give their kids fluoride supplements if their municipal water supply has an inadequate level of fluoride.

Is there anything else a concerned East Bel Air parent can do to promote children’s oral health?… Read more

Debunking Dental Myths

East Bel Air dental

Today’s Dr. Steven W. Haywood blog post focuses on three dental-related myths prevalent in the Baltimore area.

All Sugar Is Equally Bad For Teeth
We all know that sugar increases our risk of tooth decay, but some types are worse than others. Sugar-based foods that sit on the teeth are more dangerous than those that are swallowed immediately. For example, sipping a soda or sucking on a mint can be worse than eating a candy bar all at once.

Can You Name 9 Dental Specialties?

East Bel Air Pediatric and Cosmetic Dentistry

Most East Bel Air people probably know how a pediatric dentist differs from an orthodontist. Some Jarrettsville dental patients may even know the unique focus of endodontists. But few Maryland residents probably know that the American Dental Association recognizes nine dental specialties. Today’s post looks at the specific disciplines within the fascinating world of dentistry and the years in which they were formally recognized by the ADA. (If you want a challenge, see if you can name all nine before you continue reading this post.)

Endodontics (1983): This area focuses on “the morphology, physiology and pathology of the human dental pulp and periradicular tissues.”1 If you need a root canal in Timonium, you may require the services of an endodontist.… Read more

The Dr. Steven W. Haywood Guide To Wisdom Teeth

Wisdom Teeth And Your Timonium Dentist Wisdom teeth are the last of the molars (grinding teeth) to erupt from the gum. They usually appear in the late teens and early twenties. Not all people develop these teeth while some have from one to four.

Though some Timonium dental patients never experience any problems with these extra molars, many times wisdom teeth can create serious dental complications. If the wisdom teeth do not have the room to develop and erupt normally, they are referred to as impacted wisdom teeth.… Read more
