3 Ways to Relax: Ideas for Kids and Adults

3 Ways to Relax – Ideas for Kids and Adults!

We gathered a list of simple ways to relax for anybody who needs it. Many things are changing and change can come with stress for both kids and adults. At Great Grins Children’s Dentistry, we want you to SMILE even through tough events. For that reason, we decided to put together a small list of ideas to help you and your little ones unwind.

Move Around

Exercising is a great way to get your mind off of things for a little while. Don’t worry – you don’t have to run if that’s not your thing! Try going for a walk, or even playing with your pet. Tucson can get pretty hot, so you can try working out inside. If you have the space, jump roping is a great idea. Kids can play hide and seek or try exercises like jumping jacks.

Hit the Books

Still haven’t opened that book you’ve been meaning to read? Now is the perfect time! As for the little ones, check out our book ideas here. We’re a kid’s dentistry so, naturally, our favorite books talk about teeth! If you are feeling too distracted to read, try keeping a journal instead. This way, you can write down your thoughts and transfer some of those distractions to paper.

Listen to Music

Sometimes we forget how relaxing it can be to just lay down and listen to music. Take some time to listen to your favorite songs and disconnect for a bit.

We know that uncertainty can come with a lot of different emotions. That is why we want to make your experience in our office as stress-free as possible. Remember that Great Grins Children’s Dentistry is open and we are taking precautions for the safety of our team and patients. We are closely monitoring any changes or recommendations issued by the Centers for Disease Control (CDC) and the American Dental Association (ADA). Please call (520)325-4746 with any questions.

New Year, New Brushing Habits For Children!

It’s a new year, and the perfect time to start new brushing habits with your little one! Our dentists at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry in Tucson would like to remind you of some super simple but important practices. If you want better brushing habits for your child, check out the recommendations below.

Two Times a Day

We know that time flies and families get busy; we can’t believe it’s already a new year at Great Grins! However, it is SUPER important to brush your teeth. It is even more important, perhaps, for children to brush properly in order to get those good habits started early! You should brush at least two times a day, once in the morning and once at night. Your pediatric dentist may also mention that brushing at night is particularly important because those stubborn mouth monsters should not rest there while we sleep! Therefore, brush those teeth in the morning and then again before bedtime. It can be more fun to do it as a family.

Two Minutes

Remember: two minutes, two times. The American Dental Association recommends brushing for two minutes each time. That’s only a total of 4 minutes out of the 1,440 minutes that we have in a day!

Circles

In order to brush effectively, a toothbrush should be used in circular motions. An electric toothbrush can also help with this. If you have any questions regarding brushing, please ask your child’s pediatric dentist.

New Year, New Dental Coverage!

At Great Grins Children’s Dentistry in Tucson, our team is happy to check your insurance benefits. Many plans renew in the new year. For this reason, it is good to check with us if you have any questions so that you can get the most out of your plan! Call (520)325-4746 to schedule your child’s appointment with the best dentist in Tucson today.

Kid’s Dentistry in Tucson AZ: Dental Laser for Kids

Kid’s dentistry is constantly evolving. There are new techniques that help dentists take better care of your teeth while minimizing discomfort. As technology improves, your children’s dentist in Tucson finds new ways to provide a better experience for your child. Some improvements we’ll be seeing in the coming years include: 

Laser Dentistry

Dental lasers use water and light technology to improve the patient experience. Also known as “no-shot” dentistry, it allows for little to no anesthetics! Dental lasers are so precise that there is less trauma to surrounding areas. There is less bleeding and swelling. One of the best parts is that there is no vibration, pressure, or heat from a drill when the laser is used alone!

Dr. Wolfman and Dr. Lele at Great Grins Children’s Dentistry like to stay up-to-date with technology improvements. Because of this, they use laser dentistry. As a result, our patients have a better experience in our office! We are happy to offer a service that not only allows for more precise work, but also gives our patients peace of mind.

New Anesthetics

Another aspect that we could see improve is the use of anesthetics. This will come in handy at the children’s dentist in Tucson, since milder sedatives will allow for faster recovery. The idea is to make major surgeries as comfortable as possible for those involved without adding to the risk of the procedure.

Best Kid’s Dentistry in Tucson

Dr. Angela Wolfman and Dr. Kedar Lele are both Diplomates of the American Board of Pediatric Dentistry. Call Great Grins Children’s Dentistry at (520) 325-4746 to learn more about our modern dentistry. We use a dental laser to improve the patient experience. Our office is sports-themed and perfect for kids! We even have a separate area for teenage patients. Visit our office in Tucson today!
