10 tips for perfect dental health

Unfortunately, society today provides more and more temptations to damage the health of one’s teeth. Smoking and drinking could have adverse negative affects to that wonderful smile.

And even our kids are more exposed to sweets and other sticky stuff that can cause dental problems!

Good thing though that technology has brought on many simple solutions to these dental problems. Where would we be now if without our toothbrush and toothpaste? No excuses then, everyone should take good care of their teeth by taking advantage of all these modern dental health innovations.

Your Dentist Is Vital For Our Dental Health

Dental hygiene should be given the highest importance by everyone. Whilst fear of dentists is common especially among children, every one of us should encourage each other to see a dentist. Dentists are now better equipped and better trained to do their job.

And a relatively new addition to your local dentist’s office is the dental hygienist – it’s time to start using him or her fully.

Aside from dentists becoming more and more capable of their job, other innovations in the dental care industry have paved the way for better dental care. Dental implants for example are very beneficial for those who are suffering severe teeth problems.


Other new dental care inventions include much better dentures, braces, mouthwashes, gum-protecting solutions, and more. All those can help every one of us to take better care of our teeth.

What You Can Do For Your Dental Health

Of course, it should not be left for your dentist to take care of your dental health. All of us should also do our part.

One way, is to encourage the use of good dental continuing education. With the right kind of information available, we could all learn how to care better for our teeth.

It’s now quite easy to learn what to avoid and what methods to use in maintaining dental health. Dental techniques should be continually improved too, so that better skills could help prevent teeth problems.

And as already mentioned, within the dental health arena, proper collation and sharing of beneficial knowledge regarding dental health issues should be encouraged.

More effort should be placed into it and everyone should pitch in with the effort and share expertise, because this concerns us all.

Maximizing Your Dental Health

It should not stop there either and other dental treatment ideas could be put in place. One good way of making sure that the health of everyone’s teeth can be maintained is by finding and purchasing good quality dental insurance.

This involves regular payments – usually monthly – and although there is a cost, it compares favorably with spending much more later on, when teeth do get damaged. An individual, personalized dental insurance is definitely a great idea to consider.

If you can insure your house, your car, or your travels, then of course you can also afford to insure the health of your teeth. Besides, there are plenty of providers out there who offer affordable dental health insurance options.

So, it’s up to you to make sure you keep your teeth healthy!

    I like listerine. My husband prefers crest. Our dentist recommends crest as well.

    Could be space in between your teeth, with food getting caught and then abscessing slightly, then going away.

    Or, a metabolic disease which shows up as gum sores.

    Or something you eat or drink — acidic juices, perhaps?

    Maybe even a gum you chew, or whitening toothpaste.

    Yes, health subjects are all part of the realm of Science. Ask any dentist how much science they had in college. And in preschool, you can't really go too deep without losing them, so roots and crowns are about as far as you'd want to go. You might start by asking them what they know about bones, get their feedback, and then ask if they've ever seen a bone. Some will think of chicken bones or ribs, but maybe somebody will come up with "teeth" and if they don't, you lead them to that idea. Then jump in to what bones and teeth need to be healthy (calcium) and other ways to take care of bones. Your teeth are the only bones that need cleaning to stay healthy, and viola! You are now into talking about brushing, and maybe flossing. Take some floss (it is cheap, one roll will cover the whole class easily), and ask if they can squish their finger in between their teeth to clean out the in-betweens. No?! :) Well, how about a toothbrush, does that fit in between? (Take yours, SHOW them with your own teeth). Better, but what if I use this neat string? (Again, SHOW them with yours) then pass out a bit of floss, keep the garbage can right next to you, and pass it around after they all have a try with their own piece of floss. That ensures it all ends up in the trash (no germs, strangulations!!) and it's all cleaned up.

    Check the report below….the average dental yearly costs were under $500, so: 50 percent of people paid UNDER $500 a YEAR to take care of their teeth….
    Avg. exam $30
    Avg. cleaning $75
    Avg. filling $100

    These are all less than that last tattoo!

    The pH of dental plaque is a key factor from the balance between acid demineralization of the teeth and the remineralization of the initial caries lesion. Plaque pH falls each time acids accumulate from the plaque due to bacterial acid production following the consumption of fermentable carbohydrates – mainly sugars – from foods and drinks.

    On the other hand, the plaque pH rises when the acids are washed out and neutralized by saliva, which contains the important buffer, bicarbonate. The pH also rises when the plaque bacteria either metabolize the acids, or produce alkali such as ammonia from nitrogenous compounds found from foods and saliva.

    Berkeley publishes a brochure for students interested in pre-med/pre-health programs at http://students.berkeley.edu/files/Admissions/12626_6.PreMed.pdf that may help you decide.

    Fluoride is added to water for the following reason:

    Stalin had prison camps full of people that needed to be guarded so they would not try to overthrow the prison or escape. He realized that after adding sodium fluoride to the prisoners' water, they became very passive and relaxed. This allowed Stalin to use several times less security guards (they cost money) and have his prisoners under more control.

    The leaders of the US and other countries learned of this and started adding it to their water to make their people more passive and relaxed. It's much easier to be a political leader if your people don't care what is going on. They argued that it's in the water to help harden tooth enamel, but we already have it in toothpaste if we need it and some people don't need it at all. There have been some huge protests against fluoridating water in a town near me and it's easy to see why.

    “Depending on the person and how many teeth that you have”
    Well. I have 3 teeth. How much floss should I break off?

    I can't help you with the loan information but can recommend a good discount plan.

    Good luck!

    Almost all foods contain some form of sugar which causes tooth decay.

    All food though if left in the mouth will support the growth of germs and other mouth diseases like gingivitis and gum disease. Plaque build-up will result which pushes the gums away from the teeth giving germs even more space to hide.

    Left alone these can lead to bone disease and bone loss.

    Same applies to most drinks except water.

    Milk is good.

    Regular dentist visits will help.

    Brushing three times a day and before bed is a must for good hygiene.
