What Are Some Of The Reasons Dentists Take X-rays

Reasons Why Dentists Take X-Rays X-Rays are one of the most vital diagnostic tools that a dentist has to find out what might be wrong with you.  Just think of what it can do.  It sees through your face, jaw and teeth to give us clues to what is happening there.  Unfortunately, it is also very much misunderstood.  It is not uncommon that someone will refuse an x-ray based on the thought that they don't want too much radiation.  While avoiding excess radiation is something we all should do, radiation from dental x-rays is so low that it is not a worry.  In fact, you get more radiation working in your garden, mowing the lawn or spending a day at the beach.  It would take thousands of dental x-rays to make any difference at all.

Something that everyone should know is this.  Before any diagnosis can be done or any treatment received an x-ray must be taken.  I will have a patient say their tooth is really loose and ask that we go ahead and take it out without an x-ray.  The thought is to save money.  Legally that cannot be done.  The dentist must document the condition of a tooth before any treatment is received in case there is a problem afterward.  That way it the diagnosis can be confirmed by a records review and know that the proper treatment was performed.  Also, you never know when there is a massive growth or cyst at the end of a tooth or if the roots do something unusual.  You really want to know if that is there.  I have seen cases of cancer in the jaw missed because the proper x-ray was not taken.

I Don't Always Floss, Yes We Can Tell

I Don't Always Floss We see this all the time.  A patient does not have good dental home care and hopes that if they brush and floss really well before their appointment that we will think they do that all the time.  NOT A CHANCE!  Your tissue reacts with inflammation or redness and swelling when you don't take good care of yourself.  Flossing before the cleaning appointment will remove extra debris but the healing of the tissue doesn't happen for days or weeks.  Your teeth might be clean but the tissue gives you away.  That redness and swelling scream at us that it is not healthy.  We can tell.

Do yourself a favor and just do the right thing.  Do a good job with your oral care and be healthy.  You really do not have to brush and floss all of your teeth.  Just clean the ones you want to keep!  Plus you get the added benefit of a great smile and fresh breath.  Happy Flossing!

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.
