Dental Health: The Secret to a Good Night's Sleep

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Jan 17, 2017 12:06:38 PM

Getting enough rest is a struggle many individuals face. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention report that approximately 50-70 million adults experience notable sleep disorders.  These sleep disorders have critical effects on lifestyle--mental, emotional, and physical.  Inadequate sleep quality leads to a wide range of associated medical issues. Harvard reports that sleep deprivation can lead to serious medical conditions such as high blood pressure, heart disease, atherosclerosis, diabetes, and obesity. Cures for sleep conditions range anywhere from surgery to medication.  However, a potential solution to sleep maladies may lie within our own mouths. New research is showing a strong link between dental health and its connection to our quality of sleep.

Gum Disease's Impact On Your Overall Health

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Jan 10, 2017 3:18:11 PM

Gum disease is a subtle condition that develops slowly and quietly, deceiving many concerning the serious risks it poses. These risks don't just cover dental health. New research reveals that gum disease is a dangerous catalyst to many other health conditions. Gum disease is often over-simplified as just minor gum irritation or soreness.  Unfortunately, misconceptions such as this allow gum disease to progress to extremely dangerous levels.  Take steps to increase your own awareness on how gum diseases such as gingivitis and periodontitis put your health at risk.

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Dec 5, 2016 3:53:55 PM

Better dental health leads to improved overall health.

Let's begin by reviewing what most people already know. The daily habits of brushing and flossing are elementary if optimal dental health is to be reached. The use of water jets and electric toothbrushes certainly aid in efficiency but a great, healthy smile can be achieved without them.

Investigating the Connection Between Oral Health and Overall Health

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Nov 28, 2016 3:21:54 PM

Gum disease affected nearly 6.5 million adults in the U.S. between 2009 and 2010, according to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, and the same study showed that those over 65 years of age had an increased potential for periodontal disease. Oral health is directly related to overall health, and diseases originating in the mouth or in the gums may have the same risk factors as other chronic diseases. There is, however, a clear connection between low dental health levels and some chronic diseases.

Why Do I Have Bad Breath? 3 Possible Reasons

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Sep 26, 2016 11:08:48 AM

Bad breath is one of those social faux pas we all secretly fear. Because, or so we're led to believe, most people who have bad breath are unaware of it. That means other people either have to suffer through, or be put in the unenviable position of telling us our breath is terrible. The good news is that, if you follow your dentist's instructions, chances are good your breath is fine. Even if your breath isn't fine, there is probably a root cause you can attack.

The Importance of Daily Flossing

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 29, 2016 2:21:31 PM

Caring for your teeth is a priority, and for most of us, brushing our teeth in the morning after we've had our coffee and breakfast and again before we hit the sack is second nature. Our parents did (one of) their jobs and trained us well. After all, once we lose our baby teeth and get our permanent teeth, that's it. They're ours to take care of and keep, or abuse and lose! But although most of us are good about the brushing part, many of us neglect cleaning between our teeth, a.k.a. flossing. The importance of flossing is stressed by our dentists, yet many of us just don't bother. Why? Perhaps it's laziness, or maybe it "grosses us out", or is uncomfortable with closely spaced teeth. Whatever the reason, however, we need to face some important facts to learn once and for all why we must take the time to floss once a day.

Meet Dr. Snapchat

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 22, 2016 2:26:33 PM

Daniel Rubinshtein isn't your typical dentist. This one has a strong presence on social media and is something of an Internet celebrity. His accounts feature Vines where he slo-mo walks around Manhattan while casually chatting away on his phone, complete with the hashtags #dentist and #modeling. You can also find photos of "Dr. Snapchat" lounging around poolside at tropical resorts and a clip of Kanye West’s Yeezy Season 3 show that was held at Madison Square Garden.

How to Manage Your Dental Practice's Reputation Online

Posted by 6monthsmiles on Aug 15, 2016 2:00:49 PM

Fifteen years ago, patients received dentist referrals from loved ones. Now, potential patients can form an opinion about your practice after reading reviews on Yelp and Google+. Since you can leave feedback online anonymously, some people will use that to their advantage and post information that is false or misleading. Although it is tempting for business owners to ignore bad reviews and only focus on the positive ones, online reputation management is very important when you are a dentist.
