Healthy Holiday Tips for your Teeth

The holidays can be tough on teeth! Keep them healthy with these holiday tips:
The best way to avoid cavities while still enjoying your holiday indulgences is to practice good oral hygiene. Here are some tips to help:
Eating sugary or carbohydrate-rich foods as part of a balanced meal is better than eating them alone. The body produces more saliva to help digest larger meals, which washes away more food and helps neutralize harmful acids before they can attack teeth.
Foods that take a long time to chew can damage teeth. That's because sticky foods, including nutritious choices like raisins, dates and dried fruit, hold acid against teeth longer than do other foods. Try to limit your consumption of these foods.
After consuming high-acid food (fruits) or drinks (wine), rinse with water before brushing your teeth to prevent tooth erosion from the acids.
Keep a toothbrush and travel-size toothpaste handy (for example, in your pocket or purse or store these in the glove compartment of your car) so that you can brush right after eating at holiday parties. An added benefit is that you are less likely to eat after you brush your teeth, so you may end up eating less at parties.
If you're unable to brush your teeth after eating, rinsing your mouth thoroughly with water or chewing sugar-free gum will help to wash away food particles, produce more saliva and neutralize acids in your mouth

Thanksgiving Eating Tips

Thanksgiving is a wonderful holiday spent with family and friends and reminds us to be thankful for all we have. On the opposite end, Thanksgiving can present a challenge if you are trying to stick to a healthy diet. Want to have a healthier Thanksgiving this year? Take a look at some food tips we found at http://health.howstuffworks.com/wellness/food-nutrition/healthy-eating/thanksgiving-tips.htm.

1. Get Fish-Friendly: By itself, fish is lower in calories than chicken or ham, and certain types of fish are rich in heart-healthy fats. Just remember to avoid the creamy sauces!
2. Pass Up Ham: Ham is one of the fattiest meats, with 25% of your recommended amount of artery-clogging saturated fat in just one serving.
3. Dark Meat is OK: Dark meat has slightly more calories than white meat, but it also has more vitamins and minerals. Cut calories by not eating the skin.
4. Skip the Skin: Whether you eat white or dark meat, be sure to go skinless. Just one ounce of skin contains 80 calories and 2 grams of fat!
5. Try a Nontraditional Pick: Pork roast often includes both the fatty and lean parts of the meat, but it's made with herbs and spices (not brown sugar and butter) and has little added fat.
6. Refrain from Red Meat: Eeek! Red meat is one of the fattiest proteins. Be sure to trim it before you dig in, and serve yourself portions that are approximately the size of your palm.
7. Sneaky Calorie Cutter: Swap dark meat for light meat and you save 30 calories.
8. Go Easy on Gravy: Roasted turkey is a smart bet for your holiday dinner. Just don't get crazy with the gravy – it’ll cost you about 20 calories per ounce.
9. Forgo Fried: Loading fried chicken on your plate won't give you much room for sides. One serving has close to 500 calories and half your daily intake of saturated fat.
10. Sinful Sides: With a deadly combo of cheese, sour cream, and butter, au gratin potatoes are a dish best eaten in moderation. Using low-fat cheese and cream helps, too.
11. Bypass Baked Beans: Beans are an amazing source of fiber and iron. Unfortunately, this casserole is full of brown sugar, molasses, and honey. Leave the bacon off your plate and save 42 calories.
12. Ignore Biscuits: Homemade biscuits often contain whole milk and butter, which give them their fluffy texture. They're dense in calories, so you're better off with cornbread.
13. Steamed = Slim: Steamed broccoli is a slim side. Just don't ruin it by slathering it with fat-filled cheese sauce.
14. Be Choosy with Coleslaw: This side dish varies from recipe to recipe. If you see it dripping with mayo, pass it up. Made with vinegar and herbs, it's a diet-friendly option.
15. Go Butter-Free: Cornbread, a true Thanksgiving staple, is hard to avoid. Eat it plain -- without the pat of butter -- and cut 30 calories.
16. Fresh is Best: The canned variety of cranberry sauce can be packed with sugars and additives, but homemade versions made with fresh cranberries can be a healthy topping. Either way, it won't wreck your diet.
17. Slim Down Creamed Spinach: By itself, spinach is one of the most nutritious veggies. Add in butter and cream, and you do more diet damage. If you're looking for a low-cal swap, try using reduced-fat cream cheese instead of whipping cream.
18. Banish the Bread Basket: Why waste the extra calories? Have one more spoonful of your holiday favorite instead of a plain dinner roll.
19. Go Green! Without the cream, butter, and cheese in green bean casserole, these veggies are an excellent choice. Add some flavor with garlic, lemon juice, or a sprinkle of Parmesan.
20. High-Cal Casserole Alert: The base of this casserole contains vitamin-packed green beans but smothers them with cheese, cream, and butter. Cut 50 calories by leaving off the fried onion topping.
21. Be Selective with Salads: Though it's not crazy in calories, congealed salad, a Jell-O-based dish, can contain added sugars and creams. Skip it and save room for dessert!
22. Take Control of Mac and Cheese: It's hard to avoid this gooey dish, but with several types of cheese, milk, and breadcrumbs, it's a complete diet fail. If you indulge, just take a tiny spoonful.
23. Boost Flavor Naturally: Mashed potatoes vary greatly from recipe to recipe. Cut down on calories by adding low-fat milk, herbs, and garlic, and cutting down on butter and cream.

24. Pass Up Pumpkin Bread: Though pumpkin is rich in vision-boosting vitamin A, pumpkin bread contains a ton of sugar and fat. You're better off with a side of sweet potatoes.

Healthy Back-To-School Tips

It’s that time again to prepare your children for back-to-school. Many of us get caught up in making sure they have the supplies they need, get new clothes, etc and forget about a few important things they also need before going back to school. You can make sure they go back happy and healthy by following these few steps:

  1. Make sure shots are current-Schools will not enroll students without an immunization record
  2. Check their vision- According to Pamela F. Gallin, MD, director of pediatric ophthalmology at Morgan Stanley Children's Hospital of New York Presbyterian Hospital in New York City, as many as one in 20 children can’t see out of one of their eyes.  Many parents find it difficult to determine if their children need glasses, so it’s best to have their vision checked regularly.
  3. Alert your child, school nurse, teachers, and other individuals your child interacts with about any health issues, allergies or physical restrictions they may have.
  4. Provide the school with any medications your child needs. 

Barton Springs Fest

This Saturday join other local residents at Zilker Park for Barton Springs Fest.  An all day long event of outdoor and adventure learning, food, drinks, and live music, it’s guaranteed to be fun for the entire family.

Prepare For Back-To-School

Summer has just flown by and back to school will be here sooner than you think. It’s difficult to transition children into back-to-school mode, but by taking a few steps a little early, your child(ren) will be ready to get back into school come August.

Step 1: Get back into your old school routine- Utilize the last few weeks of summer to re-establish schedules, morning routines, activities, etc.

Step 2: For smaller children, encourage independence- Once they arrive in the classroom, children will need to do several things for themselves. Begin speaking to your child about responsibilities and expectations. You can also assign them tasks or chores to get them transitioned.

Step 3: Set-up a schedule- Similar to step one, set a wake-up time, breakfast time, homework time, and bed time and stick to it a few weeks before school starts. Homework time before school starts can be reading time or something of that nature.

Step 4: Get the rest of the family involved- Everyone is probably still in summer mode, but by getting the whole family in back-to-school mode will help provide a smoother transition for everyone.

Dr. Patel Visits the Dominican Republic

At the beginning of June, Dr. Patel journeyed on a volunteer dental mission trip to the Dominican Republic to help people with dental problems. The team worked 5 days in a dental clinic and was able to help many people who were missing several teeth and/or all of their teeth. They performed many dental implant procedures and surgeries and were able to help many people get their teeth back or start them on the road to getting their smiles back.

Dr. Patel also spent time learning advanced implant surgery techniques with one of his mentors. He greatly enjoyed the time he spent at the clinic and working with the people there. They were all wonderful.  Dr. Patel consistently tries to perform volunteer dental work overseas working to improve the oral health and smiles of people all around the world.

We want to wish everyone and happy and safe Memorial Day weekend. Remember those we have lost and pray for the safety of those who still serve. Here are some facts about Memorial Day:
1.       Formerly known as Decoration Day, Memorial Day was first enacted to honor Union and Confederate soldiers following the Civil War.
2.       The first official state to recognize the holiday was New York in 1873. By 1890, the holiday was recognized by all of the northern states. The southern state followed suite after WWI.
3.       In July 1913, veterans of the US and Confederate armies gathered in Gettysburg to commemorate the fifty-year anniversary of the Civil War’s bloodiest and most famous battle.
4.       In 1966, Waterloo, N.Y. was officially declared the birth place of Memorial Day by President Lyndon Johnson because the practice of decorating soldiers’ graves was first observed on May 5, 1866 and each year thereafter.
5.       In 1951, the Boy Scouts and Cub Scouts of St. Louis began placing flags on the 150,000 graves at Jefferson Barracks National Cemetery as an annual Good Turn, a practice that continues to this day.
