    Teenagers Who Skip Breakfast More Likely to Have Bad Breath

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Teenagers should make sure to eat breakfast based on information from a new study.

    Teens who don’t eat breakfast are nearly twice as likely to suffer from bad breath when compared to other teenagers who eat breakfast. The study appeared in the International Journal of Dental Hygiene.

    Based on the research from the study, around 20 percent of the participants said they missed breakfast and 36 percent of them had bad breath. In the group of 36 percent, only half knew they had bad breath.

    Breakfast has been referred to as the most important meal of the day and other studies have determined there’s a correlation between eating breakfast and improved health.

    Bad breath may have a negative impact on confidence and self-esteem, particularly in teenagers. The information from this study may make people aware of the impact of missing breakfast and how it affects one’s teeth and gums. Eating breakfast and avoiding bad breath could lead to positive social interaction and higher self-esteem.

    The study also pinpointed the importance of cleaning the tongue, since many cases of bad breath stem from bacteria buildup on the back of the tongue. The bacteria release gases that produce the bad smell.

    What a pleasure!

    Types Of Gum Surgery

    Last updated 2 years ago

    There are several types of gum surgery that our dentist might recommend if you’ve developed gum disease (also known as periodontal disease). The most common cause of gum disease is when excessive bacteria buildup in your mouth and create excess plaque and your body is unable to fight the infection. Certain factors, however, including medications and chronic illnesses, can make someone more susceptible to gum disease even if he or she follows a thorough oral care routine.

    If you’ve developed gum disease severe enough to require surgery, your dentist may discuss some of these types of gum surgery as ways to treat the problem:

    • Pocket reduction (also known as gingival flap surgery). In this procedure, your surgeon folds back the gums and removes bacteria. The periodontist (gum specialist) secures the gum tissue against your teeth, rather than allowing it to grow back on its own.
    • Regeneration In this procedure, your periodontist folds back the gums and removes disease-causing bacteria, then inserts bone grafts, membranes, or tissue-stimulating proteins (or any combination of the three) to encourage your gum tissues to regenerate and fit snugly around the teeth again.
    • Crown lengthening. In this procedure, your periodontist removes an overgrowth of gum tissue from your teeth, making your teeth appear longer. This procedure is used for cosmetic effects as well as to treat gum disease.

    Soft tissue graft. In this procedure, your periodontist takes sample tissue from elsewhere in your mouth and attaches it to your gums to replace gum tissue that has receded or has been removed due to gum disease. This procedure is often used for cosmetic purposes as well as to treat gum disease because it covers areas where the root is becoming exposed and improves the appearance of the teeth.

    How to Floss with Braces

    Last updated 2 years ago

    Flossing With Braces: Misconception

    Many children and teens (and some adults) don't know how to floss with braces. Or they think that they can't floss at all if they have braces. But that's not the case. In fact, daily flossing is especially important during the time that you wear braces because you're more likely to have food particles trapped in the braces, bands and wires, which could increase your risk of a cavity if the food contains carbohydrates (sugars).

    Time Matters

    Be prepared to spend three times as long on your oral care while you have braces on your teeth. Don't worry, it's worth the time-if you don't pay attention to oral hygiene while your teeth are being realigned, you increase your risk of gum disease. Plus, it can help your teeth look that much better when it's finally time to get your braces removed.

    Steps To Follow When Flossing With Braces

    Although flossing with braces is tricky, you can get the hang of it with practice if you follow these steps:

    • Use waxed floss (unwaxed floss is more likely to get caught and shred in your braces), dental tape or a product specifically designed to clean around your braces, like the Oral-B® Orthodontic Brush
    • Use enough. About 18 inches of floss should suffice
    • Thread it carefully. Take the floss and carefully thread it under the main wire of the braces before passing it between two teeth. Then remove the floss and re-thread it under the main wire to pass between the next pair of teeth.
