Are You Stocked for the School Year?

September 12th, 2014

bonus-pak-september-2014

Are the kids back to school already? Or if you don’t have kids, have you noticed that traffic has picked up lately? We certainly have here in Los Angeles.

Whether you’re a parent or not, we know things can get a little hectic around this time of year. The holidays will be here before you know it!

Save yourself some stress (and a LOT of money) by stocking up for at least the next few months during our LAST EVER Bonus Pak Sale. With just a few clicks, you’ll have enough TheraBreath products to last at least until you break out the extra-warm sweaters from the back of the closet.  Oh and did we mention the free shipping and the up to $201 in FREE products?

In case you are school-bound, here are some back-to-school tips for the kiddos:

1. Swap toothbrushes
The start of school is a great time to for your child to ditch his or her old, summer-scuffed toothbrush for a new one. Dentists recommend getting a new toothbrush every two to three months.

2. Instill brushing and flossing into their routine
In the morning routine, your kids can start the day off right by brushing and flossing their teeth. Scrubbing your chompers will get rid of morning breath while flossing can detach food debris from those hard-to-reach places. Don’t forget a nighttime scrub!

3. Invest in mouthwash
Say goodbye to bad breath with alcohol-free mouthwash. Avoid mouthwash that contains alcohol, as it actually dries out the mouth, which can lead to stinky breath.

4. Eat a balanced breakfast
We hear that phrase a lot in cereal commercials – “a balanced breakfast.” Yet most people skip the fruits and head straight for the box of sugary cereal. A healthy morning meal contains a mix of complex carbohydrates and protein to fuel your child until lunch.

5. Schedule a dentist appointment
When was the last time your child went to the dentist? If it’s been more than six months, it’s time to pay a visit. Professionals can catch plaque buildup, gum erosion and other concerns that we often overlook before they develop into something worse.

6. Cleaner teeth, better grades?
That’s right, kids may be able to boost their grades by simply keeping their teeth clean, according to a study from the University of Southern California’s Ostrow School of Dentistry. Students miss a total of 51 million school hours each year due to toothaches and other dental diseases, forcing them to catch up on old assignments and pace through a heightened workload.

Girl Does Ice Bucket Challenge After Getting Wisdom Teeth Out

September 3rd, 2014

wisdom teeth ice bucket

The commitment to amyotrophic lateral sclerosis (ALS) launched into wheezy new heights this week as a young girl completed the Ice Bucket Challenge while still on anesthesia.

Meghan Waterman had her wisdom teeth removed one hour before she decided to dump water on herself to help raise awareness of ALS, or Lou Gehrig’s disease, as part of the ALS Ice Bucket Challenge. 

The procedure to remove wisdom teeth is meant to improve a patient’s oral health, as it helps prevent bacterial infections that could cause bad breath and gum disease. Even with a swollen, bleeding mouth, Waterman apparently wanted to help others before she finished helping herself. 

Waterman was nominated by her friends the day earlier, and after the tooth extraction, she found herself alone in the kitchen chatting online with a friend who reminded her about the nomination. 

Hazy from anaesthesia, Waterman slurred through her speech and in the midst of voicing her nervousness that her mom would come home, she ended up pouring the ice water onto her chest.

“This is for the people l hope I can help out,” Waterman said in the video, which garnered nearly 3 million views since it was posted on August 21. She said she barely remembers making the video.

The viral Internet trend of dumping a bucket of ice water on your head – or body – and nominating friends has gained popularity across the country, raising almost $80 million for the ALS Association in less than a month. 

Among other issues, those with ALS deal with oral health problems since their muscles lose the ability to help them perform even routine activities such as brushing and flossing teeth.

Though unintentionally, Waterman helped spotlight the disease as well as dental health priorities.

6 Back-to-school Tips for Kids’ Oral Health

August 29th, 2014

 

oral health back to school

School is right around the corner. And that means preparing your youngster for class, buying new books and making sure he or she looks presentable - that includes oral hygiene. No one wants to show up on the first day with bad breath, so check out these simple back-to-school tips. 

1. Swap toothbrushes
The start of school is a great time to for your child to ditch his or her old, summer-scuffed toothbrush for a new one. Dentists recommend getting a new toothbrush every two to three months. Otherwise, bad bacteria and food particles can cause microbes to grow on bristles and handles. If your kid has an electric toothbrush, swap heads – and make sure they clean the handle, too.

2. Instill brushing and flossing into their routine
In the morning routine, your kids can start the day off right by brushing and flossing their teeth. Scrubbing your chompers will get rid of morning breath while flossing can detach food debris from those hard-to-reach places. Everyone’s supposed to brush their teeth for two minutes, twice a day. If 120 seconds feels like an eternity to your little one, tell them to hum their favorite song while brushing – whether it’s Beyonce, Justin Timberlake or Sam Smith, it’ll likely get them to clean a little bit longer.

Don’t forget a nighttime scrub! Dental experts say brushing habits that children develop between the ages of 4 to 14 affect the way they’ll brush for the rest of their lives.

3. Invest in mouthwash
Say goodbye to bad breath with alcohol-free mouthwash. Ingredients in mouthwash bind to the surface of germs and cause them to burst, which helps reduce buildup on teeth and gums. Avoid mouthwash that contains alcohol, as it actually dries out the mouth, which can lead to stinky breath.

4. Eat a balanced breakfast
We hear that phrase a lot in cereal commercials – “a balanced breakfast.” Yet most people skip the fruits and head straight for the box of sugary cereal. A healthy morning meal contains a mix of complex carbohydrates and protein to fuel your child until lunch. You can pair more nutritious whole-grain breakfast cereals or whole-wheat toast with a protein source such as milk, yogurt, eggs, peanut butter or cheese. Add an apple, orange or banana to the mix and your child will have a truly balanced meal.

Oral health worsens during hospital stays, suggests new study

August 19th, 2014

oral health hospital stay

Oral health deteriorates during periods of hospitalization, according to a new study published in the Journal of Clinical Periodontology.

Researchers examined the oral health of 162 patients on arrival and two weeks later, discovering a rise in gum disease and levels of plaque. The bacteria in plaque wears down healthy gum tissue and may cause infections. In these cases, bad breath may be a red flag of underlying symptoms like gingivitis.

When bed-ridden, taking care of one’s teeth and gums may get placed on the back burner. But the main problem, researchers identified, is that many facilities have no policies in place for routine oral health practices, and no members of the health care teams assess patients’ oral health conditions during the hospitalization. Besides watching out for gum disease symptoms, those who are sick, have the flu or a cold may come down with post nasal drip, where mucus runs down the back of the throat instead of through the nose. Post nasal drip is especially common when patients’ sinuses are congested.

Dr. Nigel Carter, chief executive of the British Dental Health Foundation, believes the study points to a need for brushing and flossing practices to become a greater priority during hospital stays.

“In a challenging hospital environment it may be inevitable that oral care is seen as a low priority, but it is clear that more needs to be done,” Carter explained. He also mentioned that family members, friends and other loved ones who visit the hospital may be able to help with that difference.

“There are guidelines for the provision of oral care in hospital settings, but as the research points out, there is limited detail for carers,” the doctor pointed out. “The help of close family and friends during hospital stays can make a difference to this aspect of their care and well-being and more should be done to encourage their involvement.”

Visitors could bring the patient’s toothbrush, a pack of floss, alcohol-free mouthwash rinse and any other items necessary for oral hygiene.

Hospital food upgrade? Diet plays another key role in both systemic and oral health, yet traditional hospital food falls far below desired fare. The food and drink you put into your mouth provides energy, but it also affects your teeth and gums – the body’s gateway. Read the rest of this entry »
