Tips To Prevent Bad Breath

 

  • Brush and floss twice a day and don't forget to brush your tongue to decrease the bad breath causing bacteria in your mouth..  This is Tips to prevent bad breathtrue especially if you are a smoker.
  • Your own saliva and good salivay flow provides a buffer against the acid from your foods.  Chewing gum increases salivary flow, but use sugar-free gum.  Xylitol in the gum is the best artificial sweetner that helps control the acid change during eating. 
  • De-hydration is poor for overall health and especially oral health.  Almost everyone could benefit from dringking more H2O!
  • Guess what?  Aromatic foods will cause bad breath.  Things such as onions, garlic and spicy foods will stay on your breath even if you brush and floss after eating.  If you are going to worry about your breath, maybe you need to avoid those kinds of food.
  • Mouthwashes with an antibacterial properties will increase your oral health.  Even more effective is to add a small amout of hydrogen peroxide then gargle and rinse with that.
  • If you have cavities and especially if you have gum disease your breath will not be fresh.  Those problems are a sign of a high bacteria count and microbes in your mouth.  They are primary causes of bad breath.

One of the challenges of running a multi-doctor practice is to make sure the new doctor that is brought in understands how things work.  Theysedation dentistry need to know that sedation dentistry is what makes our practice stand out from most of the others.  They need to know that patient satisfaction is a priority and that happy patients send their friends to see us.

Yesterday in the mail I received a review from a patient who received sedation dentistry from Dr. Sparks, one of our associate doctors.  Let me share with you what she said.  "Dr. Sparks and girls were so nice.  I was scared but they make me so comfortable.  I got my smile back and my teeth are beautiful!  Sedation is the way to go!  Thanks so much for my smile and beautiful teeth!" --Deborah W.That is a happy patient and I am a happy boss.  The staff at Bohle Family Dentistry is what will make you write a letter like that.  We pride ourselves on trying to give the best patient experience as possible.  When the appointment is easy on you, then it is easy on us and everone wins.

If you have any questions about the procedures at Bohle Dental or want to make an appointment, please let us know.

DOCS Diplomate DOCS Diplomate Award

I was honored and prevledged  last weekend to attend a Doctors Organization for Conscious Sedation (DOCS) meeting in Atlanta.  At these meetings sedation doctors from all across the US and Canada gather to further their education in the field of sedation.  I was there to take an advanced update course and to do a re-certification on my Advanced Cardia Life Support (ACLS).

These are always very stimulating meetings because of the high quality of the attendies.  The teaching staff tells us that sedation doctors are amoung the elite practioners because of the sacrifice it takes to be a licensed sedation dentist.  There is a significant investment of time and money.

Also for this meeting I was an instructor.  I was assigned to oversee the "live patient experience" portion of some training.  Begining doctors first watch videos to see how a patient reacts to sedation then they see a patient up-close and personal.  I sedated a nice lady and had group after group of doctors come thru to see how I did things.  Answering the questions always takes me back to my early sedation years when everything was new.  The doctors were surprised to learn that I had sedated over 1400 patients.  This year I have been faculty for the Univeristy of KY and DOCS.  I guess all that experience is paying off.

The highlight of the weekend was receiving the Diplomate Award from DOCS.  This is their highest award and is considered "rarified air" in the sedation community.  So few doctors have received the Diplomate Award because of what it takes to qualify.  You have to have a large number of sedations plus multiple published papers on sedation.  You submit your application and it is reviewed by the credentials committee for approval.  I guess I made it through.  I am very honored.

Bohle Family Dentistry providing sedation dentistry has changed the dental world of countless people.  If you would like to learn more about sedation visit our website.

Market House Theatre

 

 

 

 

 

On of the most fun things I do outside of the office is to volunteer at Paducah's Market House Theatre.  Over the years I have been a past president and long time board member but the real action is to be onstage.  Several years ago the Market House Theatre, Murder Mystery Troupe was started to perform special shows as fundraising events.  Typically a show is held in the main theatre for the general public but many  times a private business will rent us for a show.  We have done a lot of Christmas parties over the years.  We even go on the road to other venues as a "rent a show" to be a fundraiser for another organization.

Last weekend the murder mystery dinner theatre was WIN, LOSE OR DIE!  It was a really fun show for the sold out crowd because of all the audience participation that was involved.  Also, four audience members were brougt onstage as contestants for the show "Lyrical Pursuit".  For Saturday's show my daughter, Leah was "chosen" as one of the contestants.  She is a natural on stage and was fun to interact with her again under the lights.  I will say that she did get the best of our ad lib exchanges saying she wouldn't do anything that her father would not approve of.  The audience roared with laughter and I was left speechless.  The large amount of off script interaction with the contestants made the show so much fun for the crownd and actors alike.  No one really knew what was going to happen next.  It was the Market House Theatre at its best.  Everyone was having fun.

A tip of my cap to the talented cast listed above and a big welcome to the theatre to Chris Beal.  Chris played keyboards for us and did outstanding.  Chris please come back and do some more with us.

To my friend Audra Hall I say this.  Be careful what you hold inside.  Let those hopes and dreams out from deep inside where they can see the light of day.

Next time you see a Market House Theatre advertisement for a murder mystery theatre, go and have a fun time.  Maybe a local dentist will be in the show.
