Dental care fun: watch videos & interactive dental health care games online. No comments yet

Make learning about dental care fun for your children so that trips to your family dentist will go much more smoothly. Here’s how.

Recently, we shared a number of dental health care resources for your family, including coloring projects, games and other activities. Today, you’ll discover another terrific web site for your family that features interactive family fun: the National Museum of Dentistry . Go to the site, click on the “Let’s Go” button (available in English or Spanish) and then you can let the fun begin!

A cute character named Mouthie - who looks like teeth and gums - guides you through dental care info through a series of games and challenges.

At the start of the game, you will be assigned a game code. If you decide to stop playing the game for a while, you can pick up where you left off by entering the game code. Mouthie then guides you and your children through his laboratory, where children who learn something important about dental care receive a tooth. Win all the teeth in the lab and be awarded a certificate of achievement.

Learn about the negative effects tobacco has on a person’s overall dental health care, and then you get to create a fun anti-smoking poster.

Tooth colored fillings: talk to a family dentist about dental care options. No comments yet

For a blend of general dental care and cosmetic dentistry, talk to your dentist about tooth colored fillings.

If, after an examination and cleaning, your dentist recommends fillings to prevent further tooth decay (fillings are placed in teeth to ‘fill the hole’ created by decay), ask him or her about natural colored fillings. These fillings are crafted from composition resins and, because they match natural teeth in color and texture, they are much less noticeable than traditional fillings - and can even improve the appearance of your smile.

Your dental care professional may advise traditional fillings, rather than tooth colored ones, for back teeth.

Tooth colored fillings may be right for your children’s teeth as well as adult teeth.
