National Diabetes Month

Monday, November 25th, 2013

550152_84366311November is National Diabetes Month, which helps raise awareness for people who face the day-to-day struggles of the disease. If you’re a diabetic, you likely keep an eye on your diet and nutrition. Diabetics are more at risk for a variety of different conditions, especially dental health problems, including gum diseasedry mouth, tooth decay and oral infections. In fact, people with diabetes are twice as likely to develop gum disease than those with normal glucose function.

During this month, the American Diabetes Association wants to put the ever-growing disease in the national spotlight. At the beginning of November, they asked people to submit a personal image to the association’s Facebook mosaic demonstrating what “A Day in the Life of Diabetes” means to them. If you or anyone you know has diabetes, you already understand how life-changing the condition can be. According to the association, almost 26 million children and adults in the U.S. have diabetes. Another 79 million Americans have prediabetes, or impaired glucose tolerance, and are at risk for developing type 2 diabetes.

Raising awareness of diabetes
Diabetes is a chronic disease which affects how the body breaks down sugar, or glucose, which is the brain’s main source of fuel. Normally, insulin, a hormone produced by the pancreas, keeps blood glucose in check. However, those who have diabetes experience insulin resistance, which results in high levels of blood sugar.

There are three main variations of the disease: type 1, type 2 and gestational diabetes. Totaling 90 to 95 percent of all new cases worldwide, type 2 is by far the most common form of diabetes.

So, where does the health of your mouth enter the picture? Diabetes can lead to a spectrum of dental issues, with gum disease and dry mouth at the forefront.

Gum disease
Though periodontal disease, or gum disease, is regarded as a complication of diabetes, the connection is a two-way street; diabetics are more prone to gum disease, and in turn, gum disease can influence the development of diabetes.

After Telling Miley What’s What, Cher Backs it up with History of Good Oral Health

Tuesday, September 24th, 2013

1370587_31342387Even Cher was ragging on Miley Cyrus’ bad breath following the former Disney star’s infamous performance at the MTV VMAs.

Cleaning up that white-coated tongue would not have redeemed Cyrus’ booty-shaking and blurred thighs, but perhaps it would’ve helped.

In an interview with USA Today to promote her new album, Cher spoke her mind.

“I’m not old-fashioned. She could have come out naked, and if she’d just rocked house, I would have said, ‘You go, girl.’ It just wasn’t done well. She can’t dance, her body looked like hell, the song wasn’t great, one cheek was hanging out. And, chick, don’t stick out your tongue if it’s coated.”

Cher is no stranger to scandalous outfits: in fact, some may argue she helped pioneer them. That only made her remarks even more poignant.

The all-star diva has had her fair share of dental work in the past, too. At age 30, she went to the dentist for a routine teeth cleaning, and noticed some teeth shifting. Later she underwent procedures to correct her smile. And now look at her! She has a great teeth and in the 50 years she’s been at it, not one picture quite as smelly as Miley’s has surfaced.

She knows a thing or two about oral health. Through hundreds of interviews and performances, Cher kept it fresh.

So how did she manage?

Did you Celebrate National Beer Day?

Monday, August 19th, 2013

1209276_60041182On a hot summer day, there are few things better in life than an ice-cold, frosty brew. Whether it is in celebration, to relax or de-stress, hoppy beverages serve us in many ways August 5, was a chance to celebrate National Beer Day with a cold one or two, but we hope you didn’t forget about your oral health! Some health experts warn us against drinking too much beer because it can add to our waistline, but others praise moderate drinking for its heart-healthy benefits. Yes, you read that right – benefits. Follow these guidelines whenever you reach for a cold one (presuming you’re of age, of course!) to make sure that your oral health isn’t suffering while reaping the rewards of knocking back a few.

Keep your mouth in peak condition
There are so many varieties of beer with different flavors, levels of carbonation, hops, alcohol and ingredients, and some are worse than others for bad breath. The stronger the flavor, the more it’s going to linger on your breath. You’ve probably encountered someone who drank only one or two beers, but their breath smelled like they finished off a case. While the aroma of a sudsy mug may be pleasing to the nose, something unfortunate happens as it enters the body. There are a number of reasons why beer causes bad breath, such as the acetone and ethanol that are thrown into the mix.

Alcohol also dehydrates you, leaving little saliva in your mouth to wash away the volatile sulfur compounds that let out the stench. This is why you wake up the next morning with dry mouth and bad breath that can clear any room. You can’t hide that beer from anyone!

Prepare for Summer’s Most Fun Events and Festivals

Monday, August 12th, 2013

1288797_17766700With the summer in full swing and festival season well underway for music fans across the country, there are a few things that die-hard audiophiles can take into consideration when attending the next big event. And what better way to prepare, than to take advice than from the newest release from 1990s grunge rockers, the Pixies? What kind of advice can festival goers take from the tune “Bagboy?” Watch out for halitosis. That’s right – the group’s newest track is about bad breath. Before heading out to the next concert, street fair or festival in your area, take these pointers to make sure the song isn’t directed toward you. As they say, ”cover your breath, polish your teeth.”

Take it easy on the alcohol
Summer seems to bring out an urge to pop open a beer and enjoy the beautiful weather, and when you’re at a festival, it’s hard not to. Unfortunately, drinking alcohol causes halitosis for a number of reasons. Beer and liquor have a strong odor that stays in your mouth while, as well as after, you’re done drinking, especially if you are consuming a lot. Make sure to avoid dark liquors as much as possible as well as strong beers. Secondly, drinking alcohol may cause dry mouth, which in turn causes bad breath. Since it causes you to become dehydrated, your mouth loses moisture. When there isn’t enough saliva to wash down the bacteria that cause bad breath, they just sit in the back of the mouth, on the tongue and along the gums.
