Fun Facts Friday ~ Chipped Tooth


The tooth is the only part of the human body that can’t repair itself.


If you’ve ever chipped a tooth you know just how sadly true this one is. The outer layer of the tooth is enamel which is not a living tissue. Since it’s not alive, it can’t repair itself, leaving your dentist to do the work instead.

Take a Load off Your Spine

Who doesn’t know how to use a backpack? Load it up and strap it on right?
Did you know that a backpack has the potential to alter posture and add stress to your child’s still growing spine?
The proper purchase and use of a backpack is critical.
When you’re out looking for a backpack it’s important that you find one the that fits your child properly. It should not hang down below the waist more than 4 inches.
The backpack should have two padded and adjustable shoulder straps and a waist strap if possible.
Look for symmetrical pockets so that items can be loaded and kept separate and at the same time remain in balance. It is important to distribute the weight evenly. A fully loaded backpack should not exceed 15% of your child’s body weight.
As the experts on posture, spinal alignment and its effect on your health, we hope you will consider these recommendations for the health of your child’s spine.
