Resolution or Evolution?

As we look to New Years…consider this: According to Wikipedia, "A New Year's resolution is a promise that you make to yourself to start doing something good or stop doing something bad on the first day of the year". Perhaps we should consider the word Evolution instead, which is "any process of change over time".

Facts on Shark Teeth

In honor of Shark Week on the Discovery Channel we thought some facts on Shark Teeth would be appropriate.

1)  A shark can have up to 50,000 teeth in a lifetime.
2)  Sharks typically lose at least one tooth per week.
3)  Shark teeth are arranged in neat conveyor belt rows and can be replaced within a day of losing one.

4)  Shark teeth were recently discovered to contain fluoride.

5)  Sharks do not suffer from cavities.

6)  The coating of shark teeth is acid resistant and less water soluble than our teeth.

For more information on Sharks check out the Discovery Channel.

Happy Anniversary!

Tips on Brushing Children's Teeth

Do you have a child that doesn't like to brush their teeth?  You are not alone. Here are a few tips that may help:

·      Sticker charts – google sticker charts for brushing teeth – some of the kids shows offer online charts so you could pick their favorite character.
·      Make up a silly song about brushing teeth.
·      You can pretend you are looking for the remains of dinner “let’s see how much chicken you have left in your mouth from dinner” and then make a big deal out of what you do pull out.
·      Compete on who can open their mouth the widest while brushing.
·      Brush with your kids and then switch and let them brush yours too.  Interesting as you get to experience from their perspective too.
·      There is a kids Spinbrush on the market that allows you to put stickers on it.  They get to decorate their own brush.  So after you brush they get to put the sticker on it.
·      Using hand flossers seems easier than the string of floss when you are doing someone else.  They can pick the flosser and practice on their own too.
·      Another idea is to look up pictures of sugar bugs on the computer and pictures of yucky cavities and share with your children.
·      There are a ton of video clips on line about cavities that are silly but educational.  You can google some and preview them to show your kids.  We have one cute Japanese video on tooth brushing on our website at    It is fun no matter what language you speak.  Your kids may want to watch it again and again.

No matter what, consistency is key.  The more your child is exposed to brushing their teeth the easier it will get.  Hang in there and feel free to ask any questions during your next visit.

Keep in mind some children experience sensory issues and that is another topic all together.  Depending on the severity it may require a visit to your child's pediatrician and/or possible referral to an occupational therapist.

Gold in Dentistry

When most people think of gold fillings they often picture images like these.

At HMDC we take gold seriously.  Did you know that in dentistry gold is one of the strongest and longest lasting dental materials?  Depending on the location within your mouth, it may be an extremely viable product.  Gold can often be used in the back of the mouth where it is not easily noticed by others, allowing you to reap the benefits of an outstanding product.

According to the ADA, gold resists tarnishing and is highly resistant to fracture.  Gold is resistant to wear and gentle on opposing teeth.  Gold can be placed in thinner sections, requiring the least amount of healthy tooth structure removal.  Gold is also extremely compatible and an exceptional choice when concerned about allergic sensitivity.

We are so confident in Gold and its ability to transform the lives of our patients that we are host to the R.V. Tucker Study Club.  To learn more about Gold and our participation in the study club, visit

Do you think Gold is a good choice for you?   Call us at 770-496-0496 to schedule your appointment.
