Does oral cancer scare you? If not, these statistics will!

Posted on 5/25/2015 by Anthony M. DiCesare

A man being checked for the signs of oral cancer.More than 45,000 Americans will be diagnosed with oral cancer this year alone and it will be the reason for more than 8, 500 deaths. In fact, one person every hour will die from oral cancer. Have you had your oral cancer screening lately? These statistics, courtesy of The Oral Cancer Foundation beg you to go now!

Is your mouthwash simply for cosmetic purposes or are you using one that actually helps to optimize your oral health? Ask us about which mouthwashes are best at your next appointment. You just might be using one that only fights bad breath, yet does not provide the benefits of fighting gingivitis or tooth decay.

Are you putting off a root canal because of horror stories you have heard before? Did you know that you are doing more damage to your mouth by waiting? You could even be causing more pain by not having it done. Contrary to popular belief, root canals are virtually painless when they are done by our professionals. Don't put yours off - get the help you need today!

Do you love carbs? Your teeth might not agree. Did you know you are doing more damage to your teeth by consuming carbs - no matter how healthy? Those carbohydrates turn into sugar in your mouth. This means that your mouth is subjected to the same acids that it endures when you eat a candy bar! You will think twice before eating that extra helping of pasta next time!

Flossing does more than get rid of food that may be stuck in between your teeth; it actually removes plaque and bacteria - the two things you do not want to remain there. If you do not floss, you are letting the bacteria buildup, which could mean gum disease, heart disease, and even diabetes! Are you willing to take the risk?

Do you love tea? It's time to go green - that is green tea! The antioxidants found in this version of tea are known to help periodontal health (your teeth and gums). The Journal of Periodontology published the findings of a study that showed a significant decrease in the gum bleeding, inflammation, and periodontal pockets as a result of green tea consumption. Please make the switch today, by contacting our office for healthier teeth and gums!
