Growing a first tooth is one of the most excited and important milestones in an infant’s life – but for parents, the teething process can often be a bit of a mystery. We know that there’s a lot to keep track of, so for this blog, we’ve put together some helpful info and tips on what to expect as your child’s teeth develop.

Food choices play an important role when it comes to oral health. Believe it or not, not all foods that are healthy for you also promote good oral health! Some of the food that we have listed may surprise you – read below to learn about six foods that are particularly good for your teeth.
Do you find your friends subtly scooting away from you when you’re talking in close quarters? Does your desk neighbor at work offer you Tic Tacs and gum way more frequently than she should? Are you constantly breathing into your hand to see what others may be smelling?
Do you fear to go to the dentist? Maybe you have a fear of shots, a strong gag reflex or have had a previously traumatic dental experience. Well, we’re here to tell you that you’re not alone because 30-50% of Americans suffer from dental phobia.
The first step in this process is to set up an appointment and come in to either one of Picasso Smiles Dental’s El Paso-based offices for a consultation. During the first visit, your dentist will take X-rays of your mouth to determine if oral surgery is the right treatment for you. X-rays are critical to seeing exactly how the wisdom teeth have established themselves in your mouth and figuring out the simplest way to extract them.
