TikTok is sweeping the nation with dental trends, fads, and funnies! LAA has been watching and we’ve decided to put together a running list of some of our favorite TikTok videos. Here is List #1 of 5 videos we thoroughly enjoyed!
Have a TikTok video related to dental that you think should make our list? Text or email your video to be mentioned on our next List!
Below, Dr. Kalp Juthani, one of our High Point dentists, is interviewed with Fox8 News and gives us a dental care crash course in preparation for Halloween! Take a look at the interview below and some of the many tips and tricks to good oral health care during the month of October.
4 Tips for Healthy Teeth this Halloween:
Oral Health is linked to systemic health so always pay attention to any issues in the mouth
Dentist visits are recommended every 6 months
Brush at least 2 times per day
Floss at least once per day to get between your teeth
When it comes to gum and tooth sensitivity, this can be caused by cavities, grinding teeth, loose fillings, gum disease, infections, smoking, diabetes, stress, or hormonal changes. The best way to avoid these is to adhere to the 4 dental care tips mentioned above or speak to your dental provider for more insight.
To avoid bad breath and keep your breath fresh, Dr. Juthani also recommends brushing twice daily, using a tongue scraper, using antimicrobial mouthwash, choosing gum and mints with Xylitol not Sucrose, and staying well-hydrated.

Lane & Associates Family Dentistry prides itself on being involved in our local communities and truly listening to our patients’ needs. In our Southern Pines/Pinehurst Area dental office, our team knew that we not only needed a new location to better serve our patients but also a wider range of services.
Dr. Wright: We offer everything from a Child’s First Dental Visit where we make it happy and fun for them all the way up to Adults and elderly people helping them with maintaining their teeth and their smiles for a Lifetime. We offer all services from Orthodontic care to Oral Surgery needs, implant dentistry, we just got our new CADCAM Dentistrywhich offers same-day crowns (These are one-visit crowns instead of having to come back for two visits). So, we’re pretty much a one-stop shop for all of your dental needs.
Dr. Wright: So around 3 years old is usually the standard but if you have a small child or a baby under the age of 3 years old that looks like they have some needs, we are more than happy to see them! Many of our offices are actually in the process of adding Baby Oral Exams.
Amy: One of the new features of your website is that new patients can register online. So whether it’s 3 o’clock in the afternoon or 3 in the morning and somebody decides that they need to come in to see you or one of the other providers, they can hop on that website and do a new patient registration. Which is very very convenient.
Dr. Wright: So right now we are offering New patients that come in for their first cleaning and initial visit – the Quip Toothbrush. Which is a popular trending innovation in electric toothbrushes and everybody is in love with it. So you get that for Free if you are a new hygiene patient with us. We also are offering orthodontic patients, a Waterpik water flosser after new ortho treatment.
Amy: So speaking of Orthodontics, that’s something that’s relatively new to Lane & Associates and you see all ages for Orthodontics, from children up to Adults.
Dr. Wright: Yes, you’d be surprised how many adults want to get their teeth straight again if they didn’t wear their retainers after they had their braces on back in high school.
Amy: Yup, when mom and dad got on them and said, “Wear your retainer!” And soInvisalignis also another option?
Dr. Wright: Absolutely, yes.
Amy: So, Lane & Associates is located on Highway 15/501 in Southern Pines NC, across the street from Zaxby’s Restaurant, in the former Chamber of Commerce building. Make sure to visit LANEDDS.COM to get more information about the providers, their services, and for new patients to register online!
