Many recent studies have identified correlations between poor dental and gum health to other health conditions like heart disease, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, prenatal complications, even certain types of cancer. And more. Read the rest of this entry »

Wisdom Teeth: When They Come In & When They Need to Go

Wisdom Teeth Stay or Go

Why Do We Have Wisdom Teeth?

Wisdom teeth are often referred to as third molars because they grow in at the back of the mouth, behind your second set of molars – both top & bottom.

They usually develop between the teenage years and early twenties, a time traditionally associated with the onset of maturity and the attainment of wisdom. 1

Once essential for an early human diet of roots, leaves, meat, and nuts, wisdom teeth are no longer totally necessary.

Today, humans cook food to soften it, and we can cut and crush it with utensils. 2 Read the rest of this entry »

5 Holiday Treats That Are Bad For Your Teeth

5 Holiday Treats That Are Bad For Your Teeth

Holiday Foods That Are Bad For Your Teeth

We all know that too much of a good thing can actually be a bad thing, especially when we’re non-stop noshing on those tasty confectionery treats of the Holiday season.

In addition to expanding our waistlines, there are a bunch of Holiday foods that are bad for our teeth.

Is it the weather (in certain locales), is it human nature, or is it simply just a good time of year to get together with family, friends, and the ones we love to relax our dietary diligence and indulge in some less than healthy treats?

If we manage to adhere – at least most of the time – to the “everything in moderation” axiom…especially moderation…we can all take comfort in the fact that we can treat our taste buds to the too easy to ignore treats while at the same time preventing the cavity creeps and Gingerbread Man (or Woman) from launching a total tooth takeover during the Holiday season.

Eat Smarter For Healthier Teeth This Holiday Season

We still should enjoy all of these tasty toothy treats during our Holiday feasts, but maybe just remember to slosh with some water or maybe cut the cookie intake off at a few dozen…just to prevent the aforementioned cavity creep entrenchment. Read the rest of this entry »

When Is National Flossing Day?

National Flossing Day

“I wrote a song about dental floss but did anyone’s teeth get cleaner?” – Frank Zappa

Dental floss really gets a bad wrap.

Despite it being part of our recommended daily dental hygiene regimen, and as a result, one of the best things we can do to prevent the cavity creeps, do we really give dental floss the respect it deserves?

It seems like trendy activated charcoal teeth whitening products, DIY teeth-straightening, and $300 electric toothbrushes that play music and time your brushing efforts are all the rage.

And the dental floss is sitting in your medicine cabinet pulling a Rodney Dangerfield. Read the rest of this entry »

9 Health Problems Your Dentist Can Spot

9 Health Issues Your Dentist Can Spot

Check out these overall health issues your dentist can help identify just by looking in your mouth…and at your gums.

What Do Your Gums Say About You?

A healthy body starts with your mouth. A healthy mouth starts with healthy gums.

“They are like the foundation of a house: If you have any damage at the base, it starts to impact the entire structure,” says Richard Kao, DDS, president of the American Academy of Periodontology in Cupertino, California.

If left untreated, gum disease can lead to not only oral health problems like gum recession, tooth decay, tooth loss, and eventually bone loss, it can also lead to serious issues with your overall health too.

Many studies have identified correlations between poor dental and gum health to other health conditions like heart disease, stroke, rheumatoid arthritis, diabetes, osteoporosis, prenatal complications, even certain types of cancer. And more. Read the rest of this entry »
