The snoring sound is made when air passes through the airway and causes the throat tissue to vibrate. This is the primary warning sign for a serious and chronic #health problem, which is called sleep apnea. If you suspect you may have sleep apnea, the first thing to do is see your doctor. Your dentist can then help to provide you with a customized oral appliance that will open your airway so you can breathe and get a good night’s sleep!
The two best defenses against tooth decay and gum disease are a healthy, well-balanced diet and good oral hygiene, including daily brushing with fluoride toothpaste, flossing and rinsing. Your body’s own saliva is also an excellent cavity fighter, because it contains special chemicals that rinse away many harmful materials.
If you have any of the following symptoms, you may have a cavity:
• Unusual sensitivity to hot and cold water or foods.
• A localized pain in your tooth or near the gum line.
• Teeth that change color.
Thank you Lincoln Elementary School for allowing me to visit your classrooms for National Children’s Dental Health Month! I had so much fun teaching you all about keeping your smiles healthy! Thank you for the poster, thank you cards & beautiful notes! You all touched my heart!

Fact: Do you know that 80 percent of the microbial infections in our body are initiated by bacterial growth in form of plaque? We have always thought that unicellular organisms have no social life! They actually team up, and form collective network called Biofilms. Their structure is much elaborated which enables them to get the nutrients in and the waste out. They are densely packed and can secret toxins. The complex and diverse architecture of biofilms has led to this idea that they are cooperative groups. They cause a number of chronic infections and diseases. The most well-known and studied biofilm bacteria is on teeth and gum, which leads to periodontal disease. Hundreds of microbial plaque colonize in the human mouth, causing tooth decay and gum disease. Plaque is a biofilm on the surfaces of the teeth. The accumulation of microorganisms establishes biofilm that exposes the teeth and gingival tissues to high concentrations of bacterial metabolites, which results in dental disease.
What happens if the plaque is not removed?
Failing to remove plaque can lead to tooth decay, gum disease, and eventually to more serious health issues. Plaque that is allowed to remain on teeth can harden into a destructive substance called tartar around the gum line. You can not remove the tartar by brushing; it must be cleaned by your dentist or dental hygienist. The bacteria in plaque and tartar can cause inflammation of the gums, known as gingivitis. This form of gum disease can deteriorate into a more serious condition called periodontitis, which causes bone loss, and if it is left untreated, can lead to teeth loss.
When was the last time you had a dental cleaning?
A professional cleaning by your dentist or hygienist is very important. This simple procedure should be part of your oral health care regimen to prevent teeth decay (cavities), and gum disease. The cleaning or dental prophylaxis needs to be done regularly.
