Dentists Are the First Line of Defense for Elder Abuse

With the American population living longer, seniors' oral health has become an important issue, as has the widespread problem of elder abuse.

Say Good-bye to Problems and Pain from TMJ/TMD

Perhaps you have learned to live with severe headaches, shoulder and neck pain, and aching or popping jaws. But think how good you would feel if you didn't have this suffering. These problems are often brought on by a dental malocclusion - that is, your upper and lower jaws do not come together and rest in the position nature intended. This tension in the muscles surrounding the jaw results in various pain.
Our doctors can correct your malocclusion, so the jaw can relax and relief can be brought to adjacent muscles. If you suffer from TMJ/ TMD problems, you will be pleased to discover a new quality of life without aches, pains, and other discomforts.

Ask your dentist for tips if you're not sure how to floss. Like everything else, flossing gets easier with practice.

Diabetes and Your Mouth # 5: Brush Daily, Brush Right

Brushing your teeth twice a day not only keeps your breath sweet, but also helps rid the mouth of bacteria that makes up plaque and can lead to oral infections. To brush properly, point bristles at a 45-degree angle against the gums. Use gentle back-and-forth strokes all over your teeth -- in front, in back, and on chewing surfaces -- for two minutes. If holding a toothbrush is hard for you, try an electric toothbrush. Also brush your gums and tongue.
