HORMONAL CHANGES CAN AFFECT nearly every part of our bodies—including the mouth and gums. If you, or someone you love, is experiencing sore, swollen, extra pink or bleeding gums it may be a result of such changes. Studies show that changing hormones particularly affect women’s periodontal health.
ENTERTAINING THIS HOLIDAY SEASON? Throw a party that your guest’s teeth can appreciate too with some tooth-healthy tips.
EVER WONDERED HOW THE PRESSURE of the human bite stacks up against the bone-crushing pressure of a hyena bite? We may not have the power some creatures have—but the complexity and precision of the human bite is simply remarkable.
FOR BOTH CHILDREN AND ADULTS WITH SPECIAL NEEDS, dental care can be challenging. In some cases, limited coordination can make brushing and flossing tricky. In other cases there may be less access to professional care. Some patients may experience high anxiety levels too.
WE HAVE BEGUN our Hat & Mitten Drive for Homeward Bound of Plymouth this year! We are asking our patients, friends, and teammates to donate any new, unwrapped winter wear item to this fantastic organization. We have partnered with the Plymouth location again this year and would like to wrap our Christmas tree in the warmth of your donations. Their Plymouth facility would like hats, mittens, scarves for teenagers to adults. Please join us at the office and help us decorate our tree. This is a wonderful non-profit organization who serves our community for those who cannot serve themselves. We will collect items until Monday, December 22. We will also give away an oral hygiene goodie bag for each donation that is brought into our office. If you should have any questions, please email [email protected]
THE LEGEND OF THE TOOTH FAIRY has been around for ages. But you may not recognize the winged pixie you know and love from these old traditions...
TONGUES ARE REMARKABLE ENGINEERING WONDERS. They help us nourish ourselves and clean our teeth. They’re a vital part of our oral and whole body health. How do we keep them clean and healthy?
ONCE AGAIN, WE ARE graciously accepting donations of new hats, mittens and scarfs for Homeward Bound in Plymouth. http://www.hbimn.org/
MILLIONS OF CHILDREN TODAY aren’t receiving basic, recommended dental care designed to detect and prevent disease. In fact, various surveys conclude that over half of children and adolescents did not visit a dentist in the past year.
