Dental Care for Children

Last week, we took all our children to the dentist.  We usually schedule them for dental cleaning and check-up twice a year.  We try to keep that schedule to assure they get proper dental care for children.

The dentist had not so good news for Kristel and Janel.  She said that we had to do something about their cavities.  Kristel, right there and then, had one tooth applied with dental filling to prevent further decay.  Janel, on the other hand, has several teeth that are starting to have cavities.  The dentist suggested that she place sealants on them to prevent further decays.  But we decided to schedule her for another visit.

Emmuel, my eldest son, also had his first dental x-ray.  He is already 10 and the dentist suggested that he should be seen by an orthodentist.  His teeth are getting crowded and are not growing properly, so we need to seek advice from the orthodentist what is the best thing to do about his teeth.  Since the orthodentist was not available, we also had to schedule him on another appointment.

It is important for our kids to take care of their teeth. It will help them have a healthy smile and boost their confidence.  We, moms and dads have a role to play in teaching them how to. I have made a post before how we can take care of our kid's teeth.  I also found a website called Children's Choice Pediatric Dental Care.  They have informative articles published in their site that would help us in our children's quest for healthy teeth.


  1. anong sabi ng ortho about crowding teeth, this is whats happening to my 7 yr old kid now

  2. Hi Yellow Bells. If I remember it right, depending on the age of the child, the orthodentist would determine if there is indeed crowding of teeth. My son had some teeth (2, I think) which were extracted because of this.

What's the Best Shampoo For Getting Rid of Head Lice?

When my family was staying in the Middle East, my daughters had no problems with head lice or “kuto.” A head louse (lice, plural) is a six-legged parasite that feeds on blood in the human head. Lice do not jump or fly, but crawl only. They do not carry any disease, but they suck blood and cause itchiness. Here’s a photo showing the life cycle of head lice.

When we came back to the Philipines, I was taken by surprise one day when I saw my daughters

Which Brand of Electric Fan Do You Recommend?

It’s really hot now and it’s so untimely that one of our fans gave up on us. We only have 2 working.  Actually, since we came here in the Philippines 2 years ago, we’ve already bought 6 fans and I’m not satisfied with how they worked for only a short time.

We bought 2 Standard industrial stand fans, one broke in less than a year while the other one is still working. We bought 1 Union desk fan and this one lasted 2 years. Then, we bought 1 Dowell stand fan because of a sale but then it was defective within one month. We brought it to their service center, they got it fixed but then the entire head (with the fan blade) of the fan flew off (nasira ang hinang).

My PureIt Excella Water Purifier Review

Last December, we bought a PureIt Excella water purifier at SM Megamall. After almost 7 months of using it, I can say that it was a good decision.

Why Buy a Water Purifier?

That is the primary reason I wanted to buy a water purifier. With a portable water purifier at home, I don’t have to ask my husband or my sons to buy mineral or filtered water at nearby water vendors. I know there are free home delivery services, but I think having our own water filter is still the most convenient. No calling. No waiting. No hassle.

The only question is which brand of water purifier should we buy? It’s a good thing we discovered …
