Bad Breath

Everybody wants a kissable mouth and to be comfortable talking closely with people. Not to mention wanting to wake up in the morning without a taste like the bottom of the birdcage.

Oral Care Recommendations for a dry mouth

Xerostomia or dry mouth often occurs in many varied medical conditions such as Diabetes, Sjogren's Syndrome, Lupus, Arthritis, HIV infection, Hepatitis C and others.  It can occur when taking any one of 300+ over the counter or prescription medicines or following medical treatment such as radiation therapy for a cancer of the head or neck region and chemotherapy to any part of the body. Saliva is extremely important to the health of your mouth. A serious side effect of having a dry mouth is breakdown of fillings, rapid tooth decay and loss of teeth which can impact on function and appearance.

Overbrushing: Watch out for too much of a good thing

Brushing regularly is considered vital for healthy teeth and gums, but dental experts warn that you can overdo a good thing. Known as “toothbrush abrasion,” overbrushing can lead to sensitive teeth and receding gums.

Chalky Teeth

A recent study has shown that at least one in six children is affected by hypoplasia or hypomaturation of the enamel - known colloquially as "chalky teeth" - placing them at a heightened risk of tooth decay. Many of the affected children are losing their adult molars and are on a path to years of expensive dentistry and orthodontics.
