If you’ve ever wondered how The Tooth Fairy came to be, we’ve dug up a little background information on that famous fairy whose penchant for collecting children’s teeth has turned her into a cultural icon.

Spoiler alert: If you’d rather not read about the history of The Tooth Fairy then stop now, but for curious minds, read on for an interesting tale of how the tooth fairy we know and love today came to be…

Ok confession time, we’ve ALL been guilty at one point or another of doing something that wasn’t great for our teeth. Sometimes we even do things without realising the potential danger it poses to our pearly whites.  At MC Dental we want you to keep your beautiful smile for life, so here’s a round-up of some naughty habits (The good news is, they’re habits that are easy to kick!)

Drink water for healthy teethWhilst most of us are all still in the spirit of making New Years resolutions, MC Dental would like to point out a great website that helps people make the switch from drinking sugary drinks, to quenching their thirst with water. Water is a great choice for your teeth. The rest of your body will love you for making the switch too!

“Rethink Sugary Drink” (http://www.rethinksugarydrink.org.au/) seeks to demystify the sugar content of drinks, which often isn’t immediately clear to consumers in a way that resonates on a real-world level.

"Rethink Sugary Drink" puts the number of teaspoons of sugar in a 600ml bottle of soft drink into frightening perspective: With 16 teaspoons of sugar you’d have to run a staggering 3km to burn it off. Blimey!

Drinking a can of soft drink each day significantly increases the risk of tooth decay and erosion. Simply put, the negatives of consuming sugary drinks stack up way too high and set off alarm bells for long term health.

At MC Dental we’re all about helping you achieve your healthiest, most beautiful smile. We give a big thumbs-up to drinking water.
