October Celebrations Week - Teeth

October is National Dental Hygiene Month! Whoohoo! Do you suppose this might have something to do with a night of unbridled free candy distribution and the massive accumulation of said sweets? Then the eatin'? Maybe. Not surprisingly, most of our books on tooth care are written for children, under the assumption that adults know enough to brush, floss, repeat. Endlessly. But here's one for all ages: Dental first aid for families.

OK, not a cheerful thought, but if it's the middle of the night and you know you'll have to spend approximately 3 months in the emergency room before they can get to you, I can see how this might be a handy little item. Check it out, make note of the important parts, and be secure in the knowledge that you can refrain from freaking out the next time you lose a cap. Unlike me.
