The Connection Between Weight Loss and Increased Flossing
Posted on 10/15/2018 by Posh Dental
Flossing is one of the most important things you can do for good oral health which in turn can be beneficial for your overall health. Even if you brush for two minutes at least twice a day, flossing will get rid of those food particles that stubbornly get stuck in between your teeth, along the gumline. If you are part of the 10-percent of the population that doesn't floss at all, then you could also be missing out on an excellent weight-loss option. Some data concludes that only 49-percent of people floss every day, which could explain the high incidences of gum disease. Flossing helps to keep your gums healthy and reduces the possibility of developing gingivitis or periodontal disease, which can lead to tooth loss. According to research, between 70 and 80-percent of the population suffers from gingivitis. How Flossing Helps with Weight Loss? The connection between flossing and weight loss is an interesting one, and something not many people know about. When studying animals, researchers found that those with gum disease had a higher incidence of obesity and when the infection was treated, their weight also went down. Inflammation can have a domino effect on the body. It puts stress on the body, which, in turn, affects your metabolism. Moreover, inflamed fat cells don't control insulin effectively, and glucose from sugars is stored as fat, instead of getting used as energy. A study published in 2017 in the journal Oral Diseases, found that people who are overweight also had worse oral health than those without weight problems. Those participants with a BMI (Body Mass Index) of 23 or higher also had dental problems such as severe gum disease or periodontitis. A BMI of 25 or higher was also linked to poor oral health. There is enough scientific evidence that obesity contributes to more inflammation in the body, including the mouth. Not only that, but inflammation in the body can affect the immune system. We hope that this new information motivates you to start flossing every day. It could help reduce inflammation in your body and lose weight too!...

Straighter Teeth Means Better Opportunities for Great Oral Health
Posted on 9/23/2018 by Posh Dental
It is a word that no teenager wants to hear. They do not want anyone to tell them they need to get braces because their teeth are not straight. Most people think that the idea of straightening teeth is about appearance. A great smile is one with teeth properly aligned. What teenagers and others do not realize is that straightening the teeth provides a path towards better oral health for the rest of their life. Benefits of Straight Teeth There are many benefits of straight teeth that people do not always think about. One of the reasons that dentists use braces is because of a bad bite. The bad bite is the result of crooked teeth, crowded teeth or protruding teeth. When these are present, the bite does not match up properly. This can cause a variety of problems, including damage to the teeth, the gums and the jaw. Straightening the teeth can resolve these issues before they become a much bigger problem such as lost teeth or gum disease. Straightening the teeth also helps prevent the biggest danger you face when it comes to your oral health. The reason that people run into issues with cavities, root canals and gum disease is because of poor oral hygiene habits. You may not brush enough, or you may not do it right. If your teeth are not straight and aligned, it is more difficult to clean them properly. Brushing will miss areas of the teeth where bacteria grown, and it is not always possible to floss all the teeth properly. Braces are not the most popular thing in the world. Teenagers count down the days until they can finally rid themselves of these devices. Once they do have straight teeth, they can smile from ear to ear. They can also rest a little easier knowing that it is easier to keep that healthy smile for years to come. If you want more information about how to maintain your oral health, contact the dental professionals at our offices today....

Reasons Why Toothaches with Fevers Can Be So Dangerous
Posted on 9/13/2018 by Posh Dental
Although a toothache in and of itself isn't life threatening, when it's coupled with a fever, you'll want to make sure you call us right away. In this case, you may be dealing with much more than a toothache. You may be dealing with an abscess. What an Abscess Is A tooth abscess is much more than a toothache. It's accompanied by sensitivity to hot or cold food, severe pain, sensitivity to pressure, fever, facial swelling, and swollen lymph nodes in your jaw and neck area. Sometimes these will rupture, which isn't good because then the infection spreads to the other areas of your head and neck. You'll know this has happened because you'll notice a sudden rush of a foul-tasting fluid through your mouth, followed by pain relief. At that moment, you may think things are improving, but in actuality, your life may be in danger. Treating an Abscess When you have any signs of having a tooth abscess you should immediately call us. If it's after business hours or you're having trouble breathing or swallowing, you should go to your local emergency room. Unfortunately, this is something that a lot of people don't realize the importance of today, which is why more people are being hospitalized for this today. When you call us, we'll schedule an appointment for you right away. During this appointment we'll need to drain the pus from your abscess in an attempt to get rid of the infection. Sometimes you may need a root canal, or you may need to have this tooth removed. Since your mouth is located so close to your brain, you really don't want to play around here. You don't want to be the next person who's hospitalized simply because they didn't want to go to the dentist. Do yourself a favor and call us today....
