Your Dentist Is More Important to Your General Health Than You May Realize
Most people view their twice-yearly visits to the dentist as little more than a cleaning and a check-up. But in reality, those visits are much more important than you probably realize. That's because your dentist is looking inside your mouth for a lot more than cavities. Plenty of medical conditions -- including some alarming ones! -- manifest in the mouth, which is the part of your body your dentist knows the most about. In fact, it's possible that your dentist is able to alert you of a potentially serious condition long before you even think about going to a primary care doctor. Here's a list of some of the medical cond...

The Science of Genuine Smiles
(Source: wireimage.com) A beautiful, authentic smile is an involuntary form of self expression. Universal in its message, a smile can communicate joy, excitement, and caring, all without language. From a dentist's perspective, the essence of smiles is in their anatomy as well as cosmetic artistry. However, instead of writing about veneers, whitening, or any of the other many services and techniques that can enhance a smile, I thought it might be interesting to present some research on the phenomenon of the smile itself. In 1862, the French neurologist G.B. Duchenne studied the muscles that cause us to smile and arrived at...

The Weird Thing That Can Happen to Your Teeth Before Your Period
By Alison Mango Every few weeks, I get some uncomfortable sensations in my mouth. My teeth feel achy and loose. My gums are swollen and sensitive. And I have a desire to brush my teeth every couple of hours. These symptoms go away after a few days, but until then nothing seems to help. The last time this happened, I finally consulted Dr. Google and came upon a condition called menstruation gingivitis--an inflammation of the gums that typically begins just before a woman's period and goes away once her period starts. The symptoms matched mine, and after glancing at the calendar, I realized the timing made perfect sense. My...

Tricks to Saving Your Teeth and Your Wallet in the End
Dear Nurse Katz, I just graduated and I am trying to stay healthy and avoid going into medical debt. I was thinking about cutting out my dental care, but I have been told that it is just as important than seeing your primary car doctor, but insurance does not seem to cover a lot when it comes to dental care, and every time I go to the dentist, I come out with a huge bill. I want to keep my teeth until I am at least 70. What should I do? Matt Kansas City, MO Good for you for thinking ahead Matt! You should not cut out oral care all together due to the expense. Keep in mind that bad oral care today could potentially lead to ...

Pay rise unlikely to make workforce feel 'valued'
A 1 per cent pay rise for NHS staff in Wales is unlikely to make the workforce feel 'valued', BMA Cymru Wales has said. The Welsh Government has accepted the recommendations on pay from the NHS pay review body and the review body on doctors’ and dentists’ remuneration. It means that NHS Wales employees will receive a 1 per cent rise, while 7,000 staff currently on the Living Wage will also see their pay increase to the new Living Wage hourly rate of £8.25 per hour. The deal will also mean an overall increase for GPs in Wales of 2.2 per cent in pay and expenses. Health minister Mark Drakeford said: 'Our...

Forget BMI. Here's A Better Tool To Measure Your Health.
Body mass index, everyone's least favorite health indicator, took another hit this week in a study published in the Annals of Internal Medicine. The study, which followed more than 50,000 middle-aged and older Canadians, found that body fat percentage is a better predictor of life expectancy than BMI. Being on the thin side or having a low BMI didn't protect against early death. In fact, mortality rates increased as BMI decreased and body fat percentage went up. "The key is that BMI does not measure fat," lead author Dr. Raj Padwal, a professor of medicine and dentistry at the University of Alberta, told The...

Your dentist might be able to tell if you're having trouble sleeping.  Yes.

Tongue indentations, or teeth imprints on the tongue that suggest it's too big for the mouth, may also be a sign.  More than 18 million adults in the United States are affected by OSA. Since people with the condition are often suffering from interrupted and reduced sleep, it can lead to ...
