'Do They Really Need to be Brushing Their Teeth at This Age?'


Here's something that may surprise you: dental cavities are a disease, not just a hole in a tooth.

Actually, it's the single-most common chronic childhood disease -- far more common than asthma and obesity, according to the California Dental Association.

And to make matters worse, tooth decay is contagious, just like the measles, the flu, and smallpox.

The bacteria that causes decay can be passed from one person to another by kissing or sharing drinking cups or silverware.

Pain and suffering because of untreated tooth decay can lead to problems in eating, speaking and paying attention in school. In other words, cavities hurt.

One way to help avoid cavities is to make sure your child brushes twice a day, every day, with a soft brush. This comes directly from the top, the ADA.

Unfortunately, many children do not have the coordination to brush their teeth on their own until about 6 years old.

With younger children, they can get the process started, but you'll need to give his mouth a once-over to make sure the job is done right.

As your child gets older, show him how to brush with a fluoride toothpaste and floss on his own.

You may even want to start a "reward program" when their teeth start gleaming.

"Carrots" or rewards are guaranteed to help the process. In other words, give them an incentive for doing the job and doing it right!

Remember, bacteria that causes tooth decay can get into the bloodstream, where they increase the risk of ulcers, pneumonia, digestive problems, heart disease, stroke, and diabetes. It's the big picture as much as it is the pretty smile!

With all that said..."Let's get those kids brushing early!"



'Bad Breath'

Halitosis is the medical term used to describe noticeably unpleasant odors that are exhaled during the breathing process. In some cases, bad breath is mostly prominent while talking.

Most bad breath problems begin in the mouth, and are a result of poor dental hygiene. Persistent bad odor from the mouth is indicative of the presence of bacteria that coat teeth and gums.

In order to stop bad breath, one must follow a proper cleaning regimen that includes brushing regularly, flossing, and rinsing with mouthwash.

In healthy people, the most common reason for bad breath is food particles stuck to the tongue. Interestingly, it is not the front of the tongue, but the back, that is the source of such bad odor.

The back of the tongue, being rough, has innumerable crevices, which are an ideal place for food particles to hide and bacteria to develop.

Bad breath can also be indicative of other severe diseases, such as sinus infections, liver and kidney problems, and periodontal disease. Transient bad breath or temporary bad breath is caused due to stress, hunger, smoking, and poor oral care.

Bad breath can cause severe embarrassment, and create social and psychological barriers. In addition, bad breath can also be caused by improper care of tooth cavities.

Cavities are an ideal hiding place for food particles, which collect bacteria over time. Upon decomposing, these food particles release a sulfur compound that results in an unpleasant odor.

'Miracle Drink? It Doesn't Get Any

Simpler Than This!!'

What drink is refreshing, calorie-free, inexpensive ... and essential for life.

 

Are we talking about soda here? No way. This miracle drink is, of course, water. What makes water so wonderful? You don't need to look much further than your own body for the answer.

 

Your body runs on water, your blood is 83% water and your muscles are 74% water. In fact, every single cell in your body needs water to function, so it goes without saying that you need water to function.

 

However, let's forget that fact for a second and focus on reasons why you should want to drink more water.

 
Water can increase your energy, it can help you lose weight by curbing your appetite without adding extra calories, it helps flush out your body of toxins, it helps keep your skin and hair healthy and moisturized, and so much more!

 
Drinking water may help reduce your risk of many illnesses, from cancer to heart disease to urinary tract infections.

 
It may improve everything from your mood to your longevity to your stamina and fitness. Even if youre still not convinced, consider this:

 
You have nothing to lose by drinking more water! It's inexpensive and calorie-free. There is no other beverage in the world that can boast all of these selling points.

 
Not a fan of plain old water? Add a squeeze of lemon, lime or orange (less than a teaspoon per quart due to the acid)for a bit of a kick. You can also add a bit of apple juice (2 or 3 tablespoons per quart) to give a trace of flavor.
