A Dental Christmas Poem For This Holiday Season

‘Twas the night before Christmas, and down in the mouthThe tongue was ‘a stirring, the teeth heading South.Their owner was indulging in holiday treats,At all times of the day, eating sugary eats. So the sugar bugs ate all the candies and cookies,All the chocolates and sodas in the crannies and nookies.They pooped gooey acid, and made rotten cavitiesOh how awful it was, such dental depravities! Now the moral is this, listen close and rememberThat...

Affordable Dental Care For Seniors

“Getting old is not for sissies.”  One of the many challenges facing our growing senior population is how do we keep our teeth and gums healthy through our golden years?  When we retire and lose our health insurance, Medicare is there to pick up the slack for medical issues.  But basic Medicare does not cover dental issues.  In addition, as we age, our salivary glands slow down making us more susceptible to tooth decay....

Where Did The Woven Dental Floss Go?

Many dentists and dental hygienists recommend woven dental floss for our patients.  Its fibrous texture does a great job of removing the plaque which can cause irritated gums, which we call gingivitis, and bone loss around the teeth, which we call gum disease.  For years, the best, and possibly only, woven dental floss on the market was Reach Gentle Gum Care.  But in the past few years, it’s been getting harder and harder to...

Topical Anesthetic Gel For Teething Babies? FDA says NO!

The FDA recently recommended not using topical anesthetics containing lidocaine to treat infants and children with teething pain .  In 2011, they recommended against using topical anesthetics containing benzocaine.  Since pretty much all topical anesthetics contain either lidocaine or benzocaine, they recommend parents and caregivers not to use topical medications for teething pain.  This includes Anbesol, Hurricaine, Orajel, Baby Orajel, Orabase, and various store brands. Instead, parents and caregivers should follow the American Academy of Pediatrics’...

Dental Treatment OK During Pregnancy

Back in 1985, when I graduated from UCLA Dental School, dentists were taught that we should postpone all non-critical dental treatment until after delivery of the baby. Any emergency dental treatment of infected teeth should be done right away. And any critical, but not yet infected teeth, should be treated during the second trimester to avoid possibly affecting the critical development times for the fetus during the first and third trimesters. The thinking was...

Surgeon General Dr. Regina Benjamin Endorses Fluoridation

Yesterday, our surgeon general officially endorsed community water fluoridation.  According to the American Dental Association, “Every surgeon general for the past 50 years has endorsed community water fluoridation of community water supplies as a safe and effective weapon in the war against tooth decay.” Dr. Regina Benjamin was quoted as saying, “Fluoridation’s effectiveness in preventing tooth decay is not limited to children, but extends throughout life, resulting in fewer and less severe cavities.” She further noted,...

Artificial Joints- Do I Need To Take Antibiotics Before Dental Treatment?

Many people with prosthetic hips and knee joints have been taking antibiotics before dental treatment on the advice of their Orthopedic Surgeons.  They were afraid that the bacteria in the mouth could get into the bloodstream and infect the artificial joints, which could lead to having to replace the joint.  Some people were told to premedicate with antibiotics before dental visits for two years after their joint surgery.  Others were told they must do...

Happy National Tooth Fairy Day!!!

August 22 is National Tooth Fairy Day.  (Apparently, so is February 28.)  And it would seem our fabled colleague has a rather long history. According to Spear Education– “Centuries ago in Europe, the tradition of “hiding” a child’s primary tooth that fell out began. Some of the earliest practices included burying a tooth in the garden, known as tooth gardens, to prevent an “evil witch” from stealing it and casting a spell on the...

How To Save Money At The Dentist

Let’s face it, dentistry is not cheap.   While you’re likely to spend far more on cars than you do on your teeth and mouth during your lifetime, it takes more than pocket change to get your teeth fixed.  So how can you save money at the dentist? First and most importantly, an ounce of prevention is worth way more than a pound of cure.   Here’s how to prevent the two most common...
