D3, the dentist, was invited by Ethan's class to do a "talk" about preventive dentistry. In other words, D3 talked about how to properly brush teeth, the dangers of not brushing teeth, and what could happen if teeth are not cleaned properly. D3 even had a slide presentation showing what types of food are harmful and some really gross pictures of the bacteria that live in the mouth. The kids were all "yucking" and "ewe-ing" as they looked at the bacteria's pictures.

After the talk and presentation D3 took out a big replica of a set of teeth. She took out a toothbrush and showed the kids the proper way of brushing teeth. Sad to say, there a couple of kids with tooth decay and I can't help wondering "what the heck were their moms doing letting the tooth decay progress?". It is an often misconception that it's alright for milk teeth to rot as permanent teeth will replace them anyway. Wrong! Decaying tooth is "decaying" tooth and should be addressed immediately.

I have some seen some adults with decaying teeth and I think no amount of teeth filling could fix them. They need dentures! However there's another option for those living around Texas. They could go see an implant dentist Plano.Cosmetic dentistry is fast becoming an in-demand specialization. I wonder if D3 would consider specializing in this too.
