Selecting the Best (and Safest) Dental Products
An Israeli company says it has created a device that will protect teeth from cavities for 5 whole years. The catch? You start by slathering a special gel inside a form-fitting mouth tray tethered to an electrical outlet, inserting it over your teeth, and then zapping it with electricity. (Yikes!) Sounds a bit dangerous, doesn’t it?
When it comes to dental care, or anything else related to your health or well-being, it’s best to stick with science that’s been used and tested for years. Getting caught up in new fads may not only be disappointing, but downright dangerous. Here are some tips for selecting dental products that are guaranteed safe and effective.
1) Selecting a Toothbrush
2) Picking a Dental Floss
3) Finding the Perfect Toothpaste
4) Picking a Mouthwash

Dental Plaque -- Some Dental Problems Are Easy to See!
One of the easiest dental problems to spot is a buildup of plaque. Plaque is the soft, sticky layer of bacteria that is constantly forming on the teeth.
Another dental problem that is easy to spot is missing teeth. Many patients assume that if they are still able to eat, their teeth are fine. But often losing just one tooth can have a cascading effect on a patient's dental health.

Crisis Treatment -- Please Don’t Wait Until It Hurts!
Many people don’t see a dentist on a regular basis. They go only when they feel they have a problem. We call this "crisis treatment" as opposed to "preventive treatment." While these patients may feel they are saving money, it usually ends up costing much more in both dollars and time. The reason for this is that most dental problems don’t have any symptoms until they reach the advanced stages.

1) Teeth take a beating
Your teeth are nothing short of miraculous. They chew ice and popcorn kernels. They open soda pop cans, pull staples out of paper, cut your fingernails, take small lids off of containers, and try to withstand all manner of abuse. You know you shouldn't use your teeth for those tasks, but ... well. For being naughty to your teeth, they sometimes crack to show you the erring of your ways.
2) Tooth cracks come in different shapes and sizes.
Sometimes a crack is really a craze. A craze is not a passing fad. Just like a dinner plate that has tiny zigzag lines in the glaze, a tooth can have a network of itsy-bitsy cracks that do not go completely through the enamel layer. This is called a crazed tooth, which usually does not need dental attention.
3) Many People No Longer need to Pre-Medicate with Antibiotics for Heart Murmurs or Mitral Valve Prolapse
For anyone who has been diagnosed with a heart murmur, we have good news. In May 2007, the American Dental Association and the American Heart Association published new guidelines for infective endocarditis. Many people who once had to routinely take medications before they had a dental procedure, no longer need to take precautionary antibiotics. The study concluded that only a small number of cases of infective endocarditis would likely develop if antibiotics were not taken beforehand. The AHA recommends that only people who have conditions that have the highest risk of developing infective endocarditis take antibiotics.
4) Do you Clench or Grind Your Teeth?
These are symptoms of bruxism. "Bruxism" means to grind, gnash, or clench the teeth. This condition can affect all ages. In fact, 50 to 96 percent of adults and 15 percent of children may show signs of bruxism. The sleeper might have 25 bruxism episodes each night.
5) Orange - the Color of My World - Are You Getting Enough Vit C?
Do you regularly brush and floss but your gums still bleed? Don't blame your toothbrush; your diet may be the culprit.
A study reported in the Journal of Periodontology showed that people who ingested less then 60 milligrams (mg) of vitamin C each day have a higher rate of periodontal disease than people who get more than that amount.

Bad Breath (Halitosis)
While bad breath might be a symptom of some other disorder, it most likely stems from dental decay and periodontitis. It's more than just socially awkward - it's a serious threat to your oral health.

Could Dental Cavities Be a Thing of the Past?
Dental cavities are a global epidemic. The World Health Organization estimates that among industrialized nations, 60 to 90 percent of school children and most adults have cavities. Here in the United States, dental caries, the disease which leads to cavities, is the most common childhood disease, nearly 5 times more common than asthma. Fortunately, the latest dental research shows help may be on the way.
