Not All Electric Toothbrushes Are Created Equal

There’s a new study out about electric toothbrushes from researchers at The University of Texas Health Science Center. You definitely need to hear about it!As you know, one of the main reasons we brush and floss every day is to eliminate the plaque that attracts harmful bacteria. The inflammation, infections, and decay that can occur are all attributed to the presence of microorganisms that you don’t want in your mouth.So, imagine the uproar after this recent study concluded that microbial counts in hollow-head electric toothbrushes were significantly higher than the microbial counts in solid-head electric toothbrushes!In other words, if you’re using a hollow-head electric toothbrush, you could be transmitting a lot ...

Here are three reasons why it’s so important.Reason #1: Greater Oral Health Risk Due to PregnancySimply being pregnant can lead to changes in your oral health. Your gums and teeth are often affected, as in cases of pregnancy gingivitis or tooth erosion due to vomiting from morning sickness.

Do You Want Optional Diabetes Screening at the Dentist?

For a while now, I’ve been mulling around the idea of offering diabetes screenings here at Delicate Dental Arts. If you’re wondering why, I’ll explain.A new study has found that only slightly more than half of adults over 45 years old were screened for diabetes in the last three years!

We Have SOPROLIFE at Delicate Dental… and It’s Amazing!

My patients have probably come across SOPROLIFE before in one of our dental check ups, but it’s time to explain why I use it and why it’s vastly superior to other methods of cavity detection.Traditionally, your dentist would use an X-ray machine to take images of teeth and look for tooth decay. The problem is, X-rays aren’t the most conclusive method of detection, which means it requires subjective interpretation. As a patient, you have to take the dentist’s word for it.Where SOPROLIFE Comes inWith SOPROLIFE – a wand-shaped intra-oral camera – its auto fluorescent light easily illuminates the inside of the mouth and snaps images in ...
