Do you ever scroll through social media, or flip through magazines wondering how everyone seems to have the perfect smile?

If you have a toddler in your house, you probably have had to say something like, “Teeth are not for biting people!” When toddlers are getting their teeth in, they tend to want to bite their friends, family members and even pets. Why do toddlers have a propensity to bite at that age? Is it a stage or a phase? Do they really want to hurt someone or something?
Wisdom teeth are also known as third molars. Their name came from the fact that they are the last teeth to come in and it typically coincides with coming into adulthood and wisdom. They usually come in between the ages of 17 and 21. Often times, when they arrive there is no room for them or they are positioned incorrectly.
Kids are hilarious. They throw us for surprises every day and keep us humble along the way. Spring in Atlanta is one of the best times to get out and try the wonderful outdoor adventures that our area has to offer. Kids love hiking Kennesaw Mountain and feeling a sense of accomplishment as “King of the Mountain” when they get to the top. Get out and have fun with your little ones this spring.
