Your child's dental health is a key factor to there all around health, please click on the web address to learn more from the American Association of Endodontics.
It's been a really long day, so you decide to skip the dental string, but brushing alone leaves as much as 40% of tooth surfaces untouched.
Flossing between teeth allows you to get into the nooks and crannnies that a toothbrush can't reach, and doing it daily, preferably at night, when plaque causing bacteria really build up, is your frontline defense against gum disease, tooth decay, and bad breath.
If the benefits of good oral health don't convince you to pick up the floss, perhaps an increased risk of heart disease will: research at Columbia University's Mailman School of Public Health revealed a connection between severe gum disease and an increased risk of atherosclerosis, a condition in which arteries become blocked.
Next time: swear to yourself that you'll floss the following evening. Nightly flossing is ideal, but its acceptable to do it every other day, as long as it's thorough and you don't have a family history of gum disease, says Godon L. Douglass, DDS, a past president of the American Academy of Periodontology. On days when you're not going to floss, swish water around in your mouth after brushing, Dr. Douglass says this has been shown to reduce bacteria.
Here at Bay Dental Group we have committed ourselves to walk and have agreed to raise money to help ...fight breast cancer.
Seventy-five percent of the net proceeds raised by the Komen 3-Day help support Susan G. Komen®’s Research and Training Grant Program and large public health outreach programs for women and men facing breast cancer. The remaining 25 percent helps fund local community and Affiliate support and outreach programs.
No breast cancer organization provides more support and care than Komen. Virtually every major advance in the fight against breast cancer in the last 30 years has been impacted by a Komen grant, and millions of women rely on Komen every day. These women need our help more than ever to safeguard Komen’s great work in our local communities for another 30 years.
In order to reach this goal, I ask for your support in the form of a monetary donation. You can come by our office to make a donation and as a thank you receive a breast cancer awareness bracelet or go to the3day.org, click donate and choose our team "bay dental group."
Unfortunately, breast cancer has become an all too common occurrence among women and men throughout the world. Now is the time to take action to help end this disease. The more funds that I raise, the sooner we can end this fight.
Please spread the word so we can help make a difference.
