Smiling for National Dental Hygiene Month

Tuesday, October 8th, 2013

iStock_000014279123XSmallOctober is National Dental Hygiene Month (NDHM). To celebrate, buy yourself a new toothbrush, a pack of floss, some oral rinse and a wad of gum. After all, the cornerstones of a healthy mouth are “brushing, flossing, rinsing and chewing,” which is the motto of the program. 

For NDHM this year, the American Dental Association (ADA) is focusing on prevention. They emphasize the value of increasing public awareness of preventative services that help maintain good oral health.

It is estimated that 75 percent of adults have periodontal problems in some form. Each year, active, employed adults lose more than 164 million hours of work due to oral health issues. It may have been invigorating to skip school as a kid, but missing work as a grown-up can force you to fall behind with clients, colleagues and important projects. Therefore, the more you stay on top of your dental game, the longer you’ll be able to stay off the bench.

“A clean mouth is the first line of defense for a healthy body,” announced ADHA President Denise Bowers, RDH, PhD. “Oral diseases are prevalent but extremely preventable. Wrigley shares this philosophy with us. As we celebrate our partnership, Wrigley and ADHA would like to remind hygienists and patients that chewing sugar-free gum is good you and should be part of your daily oral health regimen.”

Link Shown Between Oral Bacteria and Joint Infection

Thursday, September 19th, 2013

STKT-PER-286Doctors and scientists have long been concerned about a link between oral bacteria and joint health. In 2012, researchers studied a small group of participants who suffered from periodontal disease and joint disease, some of whom had joint replacements. Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine questioned the DNA of bacteria from the lubricant fluid in hip and knee joints, which is called synovial fluid. Then, the dental plaque of the patients with periodontal disease was also examined.

Case Western study
In the study “Identification of Oral Bacterial DNA in Synovial Fluid of Patients with Arthritis with Native and Failed Prosthetic Joints,” researchers examined 36 participants, five of whom had a direct link between the DNA of his or her dental plaque and the bacteria in the joints. Eleven of the participants had rheumatoid arthritis (RA) and 25 were diagnosed with osteoarthritis (OA) during the time of the study. Of these participants, eight with OA and one with RA had failed prosthetics. Bacterial DNA was detected in five patients with failed prosthetic or native joints, and two of those individuals were identified to have gum disease and identical bacterial clones between the joint and mouth. This study showed a possible link between gum disease and failed joints; however, the findings were not substantial enough to make definitive claims.

The dental plaque that was tracked during the study is the cause of inflammation in the mouth, which, once in the bloodstream, can cause kidney and heart disease, cancer or even premature births or fetal deaths.

Do Your Gums Bleed When You Brush Your Teeth?

Monday, March 18th, 2013

only 1 week left

You probably already know that TheraBreath is America’s #1 Selling Freshdr harold katz Breath Toothpaste and Mouthwash solution. But many of my patients don’t know that my products are also developed to treat DRY MOUTH and GUM SENSITIVITY!

Increasingly, I hear from patients that are amazed at how well TheraBreath works at preventing DRY MOUTH. My formula is designed to stimulate saliva flow. Saliva is your body’s own way of killing germs and freshening breath, so increasing your mouth’s ability to make fresh saliva has always been part of what makes TheraBreath Toothpaste and Mouthwash so effective. If you suffer from Dry Mouth as a side effect of medication, post nasal drip, sleep apnea, or one of the dozens of other reasons many experience mouth dryness, you really need to try our formula. I guarantee TheraBreath is effective at reducing Dry Mouth quickly and easily or I will give you 100% of your money back. And as usual I also guarantee it is the most effective product for the treatment of problem breath you have ever used. If you are ever dissatisfied with any TheraBreath product for ANY reason, simply return it for a quick and courteous refund.

In addition, while most people know that TheraBreath works like no other product on earth for breath freshening, not as many have tried my TheraBreath PerioTherapy formula for the treatment of GUM SENSITIVITY. TheraBreath PerioTherapy is a unique formula made specifically for bleeding and sensitive gums. Many things can lead to gum problems: brushing too hard, teeth whitening, diabetes, pregnancy, gingivitis, gum recession and other issues can lead to that telltale ‘pink in the sink’ when you brush. Bleeding Gums, while a common problem, can lead to serious health complications if left untreated. Blood-borne illnesses, heart disease, and other very serious problems can start from something as simple as bleeding gums. By using TheraBreath PerioTherapy, you can quickly stop gum problems before they get worse and impact your health. My PerioTherapy formula is fortified with Green Tea and Zinc Gluconate to make it the most effective gum treatment formula you can buy. It will put an end to gum sensitivity and bleeding when used as directed. As with all of my products, I will give you a full refund of your purchase price if you are not fully satisfied with your results. If you are concerned about gum health, you should try PerioTherapy today. You have nothing to lose!

Wishing you good health,

Naturally Fight Gum Disease

Friday, March 15th, 2013

iStock_000014107868XSmallWhen it comes to the mouth, there are countless reasons why taking proper care of it is pertinent to your overall health. From the social side effects of having bad breath to the condition of the mouth illnesses like gum disease leave behind, overlooking oral health can have a lasting effect on the rest of our body and mind. Luckily, many oral health issues can be remedied or reversed if they haven’t reached high severity.

Knowing the signs
According to the book Reversing Gum Disease Naturally, an estimated 40 million Americans suffer from periodontal disease. The roots of the teeth work to support healthy growth and stability, but once the bone begins to erode, the teeth become loose and have a higher probability of falling out. The first sign of gum disease is when the tissues become swollen, tender, and loose or even bleed while brushing. When the tissues that support the tooth are loose, it is easier for food particles and bacteria to gather around the base of the tooth. You may also notice that your gums are receding, which is a result of bone and gum loss.

Symptoms of gum disease may also include halitosis. Although halitosis causes include food consumption, dry mouth and allergies, it can also be a sign that the bacteria in the mouth are releasing a volatile smell.

Heal it
Once you begin to see these warning signs, there are plenty of ways that you can begin to reverse the harmful effects. The first step is to maintain a regular oral health regimen of brushing, flossing and rinsing with alcohol free mouthwash. Doing these three practices at least twice a day will help keep bacteria at bay, the breath smelling fresh and the teeth a pearly white.

Check Out a New Infographic on Periodontal Disease and Cures for Gingivitis

Thursday, April 5th, 2012


Gum disease is much more common than you might think, and it can lead to major health problems like diabetes and heart disease.

Oral Health vs. Overall Health by 1Dental

Infographic: Oral Health vs. Overall Health by 1Dental.com

It’s not so tough to think about bad breath, ruminate on gum disease or visualize the specialty cures for gingivitis. But can you do it all at once? It might help to have a nice infographic to look at, which is exactly what the folks at 1Dental have made.

The handy chart covers a lot of the bases that we regularly discuss here at TheraBreath. However, if you think it’s only about halitosis and the occasional oral-odor-related faux pas, you’re in for a surprise.

The fact is, gum disease, periodontitis and other serious oral health problems can do much more than foul up your breath. They can also increase your risk for some dire chronic illnesses, making cures for gingivitis more critical than ever.

For starters, the infographic notes that as many as one-half of all Americans have some level of gum disease, while a smaller fraction – between 5 and 10 percent – have serious gingivitis, or even periodontal disease.

As is immediately obvious when you take a peek at the page, these gum diseases come with some nasty baggage:

- People with periodontitis are four times more likely to develop pneumonia, compared to those without the gum condition.

- Fully 95 percent of people with diabetes have periodontal disease!

- Gum disease can contribute to lung infections and chronic pulmonary conditions.

- Mothers-to-be with periodontal disease have a sevenfold greater chance of giving birth prematurely or having an underweight baby.

Check out the infographic for more in that vein, as well as for ways to improve your dental health and avoid gum disease. The risks associated with periodontal disease are some of the very reasons that we’ve been recommending PerioTherapy for years. By fighting bad breath and attending to your gum health today, you may be able to avoid serious risks tomorrow.
