Bedding Plants: Plants that perform better in the cooler months include petunia, pansy, verbena, dianthus, strawflower, and lobelia. Protect from frosts and freezing temperatures. Bulbs: Many bulbs can be planted now. Provide adequate water to establish and Protect from cold weather with mulch. Some to try are Amazon Lily, crinum, and agapanthus. Azaleas: With azaleas in full bloom this month, now is a great time to select varieties to add to the landscape. Vegetables: Begin planting warm season crops this month. Bean, pepper, cucumber, tomato, and squash can be started while temperatures are cool.
What to DO
Cold damage to Palms: If cold weather has damaged palms, proper care may prevent loss of the palm and encourage recovery. Citrus: Now is a good time to check citrus trees for scab disease. Apply a copper fungicide when new leaves appear and again when 2/3 of the flower blossoms have fallen. Prune Roses: Roses should be pruned this month to reduce and improve the overall form. After pruning, fertilize and apply a fresh layer of mulch. Blooming will begin eight to nine weeks after pruning. Shrubs: Now is the time to fertilize shrubs. Spread fertilizer evenly over the soil surface and water in. Follow with a fresh layer of mulch, which will conserve moisture and reduce weeds. Lawn Weeds: Apply a pre-emergent weed killer (not a weed and feed) to lawns this month to prevent germination of warm season weed seeds. Apply when temperatures rise to 65°F for 4-5 days. Timing is important for good control. Trees: If not done in January, fertilize trees now. Frequency and amount of fertilization depends on the age of the tree.

ASK THE EXPERT
February • National Children’s Dental Health Month
What is the difference between a Pediatric Dentist and a General Dentist? Pediatric dentists are the pediatricians of dentistry. A pediatric dentist has two to three years of specialty training following dental school and limits their practice to treating children. Pediatric dentists are primary and specialty oral care providers for infants, children & teens (even through college) including those children with special health needs. When should I take my child to the Pediatric Dentist for their first check-up? In order to prevent dental problems, your child should see a pediatric dentist when their first tooth appears or no later than their first birthday and then a check-up every six months is recommended in order to continue healthy dental care. Are baby teeth really that important to my child? Primary or “baby” teeth are important for many reasons. Not only do they help children speak clearly and chew naturally, they also aid in forming a path that permanent teeth can follow when they are ready to erupt.
Are thumb sucking and pacifier habits harmful for child’s teeth? Thumb and pacifier sucking habits will generally only become a problem if they go on for a very long period of time. Most children stop these habits on their own, but if they are still sucking their fingers when the permanent teeth arrive your pediatric dentist can discuss treatment options. Toothpaste: When should we begin using it and how much should we use? Fluoridated toothpaste should be introduced when a child is 2-3 years old. Prior to that, parents should clean the child’s teeth with water and a soft-bristled toothbrush. When toothpaste is used, parents should supervise brushing and make sure the child uses no more that a ricesized amount on their brush. Children should spit out excess toothpaste after brushing, not swallow it.
What should I do if my child falls and knocks out a permanent tooth? The most important thing to do is to remain calm. Then find the tooth. Hold it by the crown rather than the root and try to reinsert it in the socket. If that is not possible, put the tooth in a glass of milk or contact lens solution. Call your pediatric dentist as soon as possible.
The American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry (AAPD) is a national membership organization representing the specialty group of Pediatric Dentists. This group of dental specialists treats children and teens. Please feel free to contact our office with any question or concerns. 813-631-1100
What can I do to protect my child’s teeth during sporting events? Soft plastic mouth guards can be used to protect a child’s teeth, lips, cheeks, gums from sport related injuries. A mouth guard purchased in a sporting goods store will help prevent injuries to teeth. A customfitted mouth guard developed by a pediatric dentist will protect you child from injuries to the teeth, face, and even provide protection from severe injuries to the head. February 2014
