Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for your Doggy {Review}

I am not the only one who benefits from being a blogger, Jenny the Pug is also being able to benefit from the product samplings this month! Recently we received a box of Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ for the sweet Pug in our life. When we adopted Jenny the Pug a couple of years back, we found out that her teeth were not taken care of very well. Right now it’s a choice of keeping up the best we can with her teeth because dental hygiene is important for your pets. Luckily, Jenny’s teeth issues are not anything negatively affecting her health and we have been lucky to find products like these to assist in dental upkeep. This is why when I was pitched to test out Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™, I said YES PLEASE. These boxes for storage of the Milk-Bone Brushing Chews™ are perfect, you can buy them in these […]

These Dang Signs of Getting Older

I have a variety of signs that I am getting older, no longer does my skin look as beautiful and young as it did before. All of a sudden I turned 30 in 2011 and my body said “oh you are old now, so let’s start being a pain”. That is when I stopped being able to eat foods I had loved all of my life, my hair started sprouting greys even quicker and I swear I noticed a receding type hairline the other day, but have not really seen it again so assuming that was (hopefully) a figment of my imagination! There is things beyond the outward signs and the inability to eat certain foods that concerns me, my teeth. Yes, I said it. My teeth. You see pictures of me where I have this beautiful full teeth smile and I love those pictures but as I get older […]

The Fairy Hobmother has Visited Me

I am not talking about the tooth fairy that visited last night scrounging up change to place in my daughter’s tooth fairy box in exchange for her lost molar, no. I am talking about another amazing fairy, this is the Fairy Hobmother who visits blogs to sprinkle gifts to use for just spreading the belief in fairies. Heck if I can believe in the tooth fairy at 31 years of age, I suppose a Fairy Hobmother is not that far fetched to believe in. So today I write about being visited by the Fairy Hobmother in hopes that I get sprinkled a little gift and other bloggers do too. If you leave a comment on this blog post, as a blogger, you just may receive a visit too! Most of you may or may not know, I will be moving from where I live now at some point here, after […]

Teeth Straightening Options for Children

Having an attractive smile may mean getting crooked teeth straightened. Fortunately, orthodontists have several choices available for your child. Braces Braces are the oldest method available for aligning teeth. Traditional braces are applied by an orthodontist and are small brackets that are cemented to the teeth and connected by a wire. The wire is gradually tightened, and this applies pressure to slowly move the teeth into a better position. And you don’t have to worry about your child being called “metal mouth.” Modern braces can be tooth colored, or in some cases, even placed behind the teeth. Retainers These appliances are often associated with braces because they’re usually used to help keep teeth from shifting after the braces are removed. However, if your child only needs a minor adjustment (for example, closing a gap between teeth) wearing a retainer for a while may be all that’s needed. Retainers are generally […]

Tooth Monster HD Pro app for iPad

Tooth Monster HD pro for your iPad is an app that was brought to my attention recently and so here I am sharing the details with you all. I love all these apps that are available for the iPad, keeping kids busy & smiling everywhere. I don’t know about all of you but tooth brushing is a headache in my household. Having a daughter who is now 10, apparently these days brushing her teeth isn’t a priority and I am constantly having to remind her over and over to brush her dang teeth. Next comes my two sons who believe their teeth only need to be brushed before bed, maybe that’s partially my fault. Their Dad and I both really hated putting up a fight to have them brush their teeth, but we fought for at least once a day since the pediatrician stated once a day is okay for […]

How Win The Battle of Teeth Brushing with Children

Each evening, when the sky has turned dark and it’s time to start the ever lasting bedtime routine with the kiddos, it seems there is more than one argument going on about bedtime routine but the most important task that needs to be completed seems to be the worse battle of my day as a parent; teeth brushing. What’s more worse? The morning battle to get the kids to brush their teeth before school. Image courtesy of Naypong / FreeDigitalPhotos.net If you have children who battle you about teeth brushing, then maybe my tips will help you get your kids to start brushing their teeth twice a day {at least} to ensure they don’t suffer from tooth decay. Here are my tips on what not to do and what to do, based on personal experience with my three kiddos: **Kids DO not Care About Having Black Teeth When I first […]

The Tooth Fairy Visits Sprinkling Love & Magic

The day had came, my daughter who was previously told by her dentist that all of her molars have zero roots with big teeth ready to pop through underneath, had her first loose molar. This was no surprise to her Dad and me, for this girl always loses her teeth one after the other. If you didn’t see when she was younger in this video below, she was missing two front teeth just before Christmas one year & sang a little song for me; The other night my daughter realized that her molar was loose and it was going to come out very soon. The thing that sort of stinks is that she seems to lose most of her teeth when she is at her Dad’s house, so the tooth-fairy frequents her Dad’s house and apparently this time around Kiara was not having that. Since she was about to spend […]

Oraline for Promoting Good Dental Health in Children

This post is brought to you by Maggie Clubs and Oraline. This is written by me and is 100% that of my own opinions. I have shared information about Cross Contamination and then another post about how much my kids love the Oraline products and now is my final blog post summarizing everything to do with good oral health in kids and Oraline products! Something I learned while being a part of this campaign is that those who left me comments really provided some fun feedback and facts about Cross Contamination, did you know that one of my readers said that when you flush the toilet it gives off chemicals of some sort in the air and so she keeps her toothbrush in a drawer away from any cross contaminates that may enter the bathroom air; good idea! I do not keep our toothbrushes in a drawer, we have them […]

Getting Your Kiddos to the Dentist: Tips from a Riverside Pediatric Dentist

Wrestling your kids into the dentist office is never fun. Not only are you dealing with their anxiety, but you also wind up dealing with your own embarrassment as other waiting patients watch your kids throw tantrums. However, there are a few quick tips to make your dentist office visit easier that a recently interviewed Riverside Dentist recommends:   Choose a Pediatric Dentist I always thought a dentist was a dentist; however, there are individuals who specialize in the oral care of kiddos – the pediatric dentist. According to the dentist interviewed, you always want to choose a pediatric dentist for your kids because they will “cater to a child’s needs which makes it a more comfortable environment, and they are also able to address specific dental needs and concerns that children have.” Find the Right Dentist Don’t ever sign up with the first dentist available. You always want to […]
