March is National Nutrition Month
The theme for 2012 is "Get the real deal on your meal". Proper nutrition is integral to overall health and vitality. The foods you choose literally affects your oral health from the moment you put them in your mouth. Here are some popular nutrition myths that Dietitians hear, and would love to dispel.

Reminder: If you will not be able to keep an appointment and need to reschedule an appointment, please let us know soon. We require two business days notice so that we can offer your scheduled appointment to another patient.



Have a fun and safe month,

Proper Brushing Technique

 
"Brush your teeth... round and round" we all remember the song. It's amazing, though, how many people still use improper brushing techniques. Brushing your teeth properly with a good tooth brush is your best line of defense against cavity-causing plaque between dental visits.

Improper brushing can be just as, if not more, harmful than plaque itself. Brushing too hard or using an improper tooth brush can erode enamel on the sides and tops of your teeth as well as damage your gums. Don't be discouraged though, proper brushing technique is easy and rewarding.

It is recommended that you brush your teeth after every meal, and especially before your go to sleep, as bacteria will remain unchallenged for an extended period while you sleep..

Can Taking Care of Your Smile Help to Protect Your Heart?

 
While we know that oral health is related to overall health, a study in the Journal of Periodontology suggests that oral health might be more closely related to the health of your heart than you may think. Links have been found between periodontal disease and Stroke as well as Heart Diseases. Over simplified, the bacteria found in the mouths of patients with Periodontal disease may enter the bloodstream through the inflamed gum tissues. This bacterium then travels though the body, contributing to clot formations, swelling of the arteries and other factors that lead to heart complications.

To protect your smile as well as your heart we encourage you and your loved ones to practice good oral hygiene and maintain scheduled visits to our office to monitor and care for your healthy smile!
