You Can't Afford To Gamble With Your Teeth

Can't  Afford to GambleObviously, this is a Crest Advertisement.  I came across it the other day and liked the message.  You get one set of permanent teeth and you need to take care of them.  Don't risk your dental health by not taking really good care of your teeth.  Get your regular check-ups and fix things when the problem is small and minor.  Don't put off needed work and wait until it is painful and more expensive.  Don't let your plan be to wait for a toothache before you fix something.  That is a recipe for pain, expense and tooth loss.  Don't gamble with your dental health.  Take good care of your teeth.

High Schoolers Know Their Candy Because Of Their Sweet Tooth

high school sweet toothA recent survey poller high school aged kids about their candy cravings.  They were asked several questions to see what kind of candy they liked and how effective the candy marketing is.  These candy questions included, what is our favorite candy?  How often do you eat candy?  Where do you usually buy candy?  What candy does this slogan represent?  Can you identify these candy bars whithout packaging?  Do you prefer chocolate or sweet candy?  How often do you purchase gum/mints?

I think that you will find the results interesting and you will be amazed at how the candy bar marketing has influenced you.  Review the study to see how you stack up to the teens.

How healthy is your summertime pool water for your teeth?

summertime pool tipsIt has been HOT outside and when the weather is like that many kids like to go swimming.  That would be kids of all ages of course.  We meet lots of people who during the summer swim in their pools everyday.  Those of you who are my age can remember the blonde kids with green hair from swimming so much with too much chlorine in the water.  You don't see that too much anymore.  But what affect does a daily dose of pool water chlorine have on your teeth?

Chlorine is used in pool to help kill germs that want to grow in the water.  That is a good thing.  But it can burn your eyes, and too much of it can brown stain your teeth.  Also, the chlorine can slowly weaken the enamel on your teeth making you more likely to get cavities.  Having summer fun can definately harm your teeth if you swim a lot.

So what can you do?  First, make sure the ph of your pool water is in the correct range.  To0 high a ph makes the water a weak acid being harder on your eyes, skin and teeth.  Those things are still harmed if the ph  is too low.  Hit the middle ground of about 7.5, in that range.and you should be ok.

Next, be sure to hydrate.  Being in the pool and the weather burns off your bodies natural water supply so even though you are surrounded by water make sure to drink your tap or bottled water.  Also, try to keep your mouth closed and don't let the pool water get on your teeth.  If you notice some brown stains on your teeth, give us call for a tooth cleaning.  Don't let your summertime pool fun harm your pretty smile Also, don't forget your sunscreen and lip balm.

Exchanging passionate kisses with big-screen star Jennifer Lawrence might sound like a dream come true. But according to Liam Hemsworth, her Hunger Games co-star, it could also be a nightmare… because J.Law’s breath wasn’t always fresh. “Anytime I had to kiss Jennifer was pretty uncomfortable,” Hemsworth said on The Tonight Show.

Lawrence said the problem resulted from her inadvertently consuming tuna or garlic before the lip-locking scenes; fortunately, the two stars were able to share a laugh about it later. But for many people, bad breath is no joke. It can lead to embarrassment and social difficulties — and it occasionally signifies a more serious problem. So what causes bad breath, and what can you do about it?

In 9 out of 10 cases, bad breath originates in the mouth. (In rare situations, it results from a medical issue in another part of the body, such as liver disease or a lung infection.) The foul odors associated with bad breath can be temporarily masked with mouthwash or breath mints — but in order to really control it, we need to find out exactly what’s causing the problem, and address its source.

As Lawrence and Hemsworth found out, some foods and beverages can indeed cause a malodorous mouth. Onions, garlic, alcohol and coffee are deservedly blamed for this. Tobacco products are also big contributors to bad breath — which is one more reason to quit. But fasting isn’t the answer either: stop eating for long enough and another set of foul-smelling substances will be released. Your best bet is to stay well hydrated and snack on crisp, fresh foods like celery, apples or parsley.

And speaking of hydration (or the lack of it): Mouth dryness and reduced salivary flow during the nighttime hours is what causes “morning breath.” Certain health issues and some medications can also cause “dry mouth,” or xerostomia. Drinking plenty of water can encourage the production of healthy saliva — but if that’s not enough, tell us about it: We may recommend switching medications (if possible), chewing xylitol gum or using a saliva substitute.

Finally, maintaining excellent oral hygiene is a great way to avoid bad breath. The goal of oral hygiene is to control the harmful bacteria that live in your mouth. These microorganisms can cause gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath — so keeping them in check is good for your overall oral health. Remember to brush twice and floss once daily, stay away from sugary foods and beverages, and visit the dental office regularly for checkups and professional cleanings.

So did J.Law apologize for the malodorous makeout session? Not exactly. “[For] Bradley Cooper, Christian Bale, yeah, I’ll brush my teeth,” she laughed.

Hemsworth jokingly agreed: “If I was kissing Christian Bale I probably would have brushed my teeth too. With you, it’s like, ‘Eh. Whatever.’”
