Why Summer Is The Best Time For A Dental Checkup

While visiting the dentist might be the last thing on your mind this summer, here's why it shouldn't be:

summer-vacation-familyEasier to Schedule

With the kids out of school, its often a lot easier to find time in your busy schedule to get those teeth cleanings in for the summer than during the school year.

Prevent Problems

Regular dental visits can help prevent problems before they occur. Wouldn't you rather have clean teeth than a toothache on the beach, anyway?

Good For Your Overall Health

Your oral health impacts the rest of your body more than you may now. By having a professional consistently monitor you and your family's oral health by a professional, everyone can maintain their health and happiness.

Fun Back To School Tips For Teaching Kids Good Dental Care – 4 Tips & Tricks

August 13, 2018

Pretty much all of Louisiana is back to school this week and we have a few tips for parent to help ease their kids into getting back into the regular dental routine.

Having a hard time getting your little one to remember to brush and floss daily?

Try a little encouragement like some of these tips below!


1. Letting them pick out a fun toothbrush

Having them involved and feeling in charge in any type of way can act as a small incentive and encourage them to want to brush their teeth, especially if it means they get to use their brand new super cool toothbrush! 😎

2. Create a game or contest

Have more than one child? Try turning their dental habits into a fun contest or game. Nothing makes kids want to do something more like feeling like a winner!

3. Educate them on the importance

Not only should you be teaching your kids the "How" in practicing good dental care, but also the "Why." Teach them the consequences with fun charts and pictures so they can visually see the need to take good care of their teeth.

4. Make it a routine

Consistency is key. Kids are way more likely to stick to their dental habits if it becomes part of their daily routine.

Still need to schedule your child's back to school check up?

Contact our Gonzales family dentist office today!

Is It Sinus Pressure or a Toothache? How To Recognize The Difference

June 15, 2018

Being that our teeth and sinuses are connected, understanding what's causing pain in the general area can sometimes be hard to decipher.

Although you should always consult your doctor for medical advice if you are experiencing any pain, here are a few key differences between oral health and sinus-related issues:

Sinus Infection

Sinus infections or "sinusitis" are usually problems called by a virus, bacteria, allergies are nasal-related issues.  Sinusitis is often triggered by the common cold or allergies and will usually clear up on its own, after consulting with your doctor. If you have a recurring sinus infection or an infection lasting longer than 8 weeks, you may be suffering from a chronic infection and it is adviced that you seek medical assistance.

Possible symptoms of sinus infections include:

  • Persistent coughing
  • A sore throat
  • Swelling and inflammation in the sinuses with a headache
  • Dull pain around the nose, eyes, forehead, teeth or jaws
  • Greenish-yellow discharge from your sinus passages

Oral Health

Besides the obvious pain in your teeth, if you exhibit other problems such as a headache, a toothache might be the cause of your mouth-related issues. Another likely sign of oral health issues is if you have tried natural and over the counter remedies for your sinusitis and haven't have had any success in solving your teeth pain.


If this is the case, it is recommended that you make a trip to see your dentist so that your problem areas can be properly assessed, diagnosed and treated.

Dental Bridges: What Are They & Why Are They Used?

April 15, 2018

A dental bridge is used to hold teeth in place and make normal activities such as chewing and talking a lot easier when you suffer from missing teeth.

Traditional dental bridges consist of one or more fake teeth that are held in place by dental crowns that are cemented onto the teeth adjacent to your missing teeth.

We offer dental crowns and dental bridges here at Foote Family Dental Care, as well as other services to help alleviate any dental issues you may be suffering from.

Learn more about all of our services or schedule an appointment with us today!
