‘Mad Men’s’ Jessica Pare Talks Teeth

Monday, November 1st, 2010

For you avid “Mad Men” watchers out there, it no doubt came as a surprise that Don Draper (Jon Hamm) proposed to his secretary Megan Calvet (Jessica Pare) in this season’s finale. chatted with Jessica Pare and asked her about her somewhat large teeth:

What was that all about — the throwaway line about your bad teeth?

I think it’s a moment where it’s sort of intimate between the two of them. She’s being open and vulnerable and he is asking her about her evening. It’s something that bothered her.

Do your teeth bother you?

I rarely think about them, although it’s happened before that I get comments and that, of course, makes me self-conscious. But I never get anything stuck in my teeth!

All we can say is “Bravo Jessica!” She obviously takes very good care of her pearly whites and has a healthy oral care routine.

It’s important to brush and floss regularly to avoid getting food particles stuck in your teeth. These food particles can become plaque and eventually tartar than can lead to gum disease.

Today’s guest: Dr. Herbert Katz, author of ‘The Bad Breath Bible’

Monday, October 1st, 2007

Does Dr. Harold Katz have a brother we don’t know about? Dr. Herbert, er, Harold Katz is interviewed by radio host Mike Carruthers of

Mike Carruthers:

Admit it; you worry about bad breath — so do a lot of people.

Dr. Herbert Katz:

About a third of the population has bad breath severe enough where they seek assistance from their physician, their dentist or a pharmacist.Many people for a number of years thought that bad breath comes from the digestive system, from the stomach — and that’s an unfortunate myth. Almost all bad breath comes from bacteria, which live within the back of the tongue, the throat and tonsil area. These are bacteria you’re suppose to have, but under certain conditions (particularly when your mouth is dry) they start to over-produce what are called volatile sulfur compounds. But, for certain people that concentration is severe enough where someone next to them on a plane or at school can smell that.

M.C.: Ironically, Dr. Katz says that many of the products that are suppose to help the problem actually make it worse.

H.K.: Most commercial mouthwash is full of alcohol. Alcohol makes the mouth very dry — any time your mouth is more dry, your breath will become worse. So, by overdoing mouthwashes you’re actually making your breath worse instead of better.

M.C.: And by the way, blowing into your hand and smelling is a lousy way to test for your own bad breath.

H.K.: It’s a great way to smell your hand but there’s a process in your brain called acclamation where you get used to your own odor. So a simple way to test it is to actually lick the back of your hand and let that dry for a few seconds and then smell that.
