Tips for Better Dental Health

 I have spent time scouring the internet for great tips for better dental health.  As I am not a dental health professional and can not treat the problem for you, if you do have problems, please refer to  Karl Jobst Grove OK.

From the mayo clinic- Oral health begins with clean teeth. Keeping the area where your teeth meet your gums clean can prevent gum disease, while keeping your tooth surfaces clean can help you stave off cavities. Consider these brushing basics from the American Dental Association: Brush your teeth twice a day.


From the CDC - What Can Adults Do to Maintain Good Oral Health?

You can keep your teeth for your lifetime. Here are some things you can do to maintain a healthy mouth and strong teeth.

Drink fluoridated water and brush with fluoride toothpaste.

Practice good oral hygiene. Brush teeth thoroughly and floss between the teeth to remove dental plaque.

Visit your dentist on a regular basis, even if you have no natural teeth or have dentures.

Do not use any tobacco products. If you smoke, quit.

Limit alcoholic drinks.

If you have diabetes, work to maintain control of the disease. This will decrease risk for other complications, including gum disease.

If your medication causes dry mouth, ask your doctor for a different medication that may not cause this condition. If dry mouth cannot be avoided, drink plenty of water, chew sugarless gum, and avoid tobacco products and alcohol.

See your doctor or a dentist if you have sudden changes in taste and smell.

When acting as a caregiver, help older individuals brush and floss their teeth if they are not able to perform these activities independently.

From WebMD -  Start children early. Despite great strides in decay prevention, one in four young children develops signs of tooth decay before they start school. Half of all children between the ages of 12 and 15 have cavities. “Dental care should begin as soon as a child’s first tooth appears, usually around six months,” Caryn Solie, RDH, president of the American Dental Hygienists’ Association, tells WebMD. “Teeth can be wiped with a clean, damp cloth or a very soft brush. At about age 2, you can let kids try brushing for themselves -- although it’s important to supervise.”

Seal off trouble. Permanent molars come in around age 6. Thin protective coatings applied to the chewing surfaces of the back teeth can prevent decay in the pits and fissures. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, sealants can significantly reduce caries. Yet only one in three U.S. kids receives dental sealants. Talk to your dental professional.

 Brush twice a day and floss daily. Gum disease and tooth decay remain big problems -- and not just for older people. Three-fourths of teenagers have gums that bleed, according to the ADHA.

These are just a few tips and there are so many out there.  I would encourage mainly to brush your teeth, floss and use a non fluoride mouthwash when you can.  Do not ignore cavities or gum pain and always encourage your children to follow good oral hygiene practices.

Cassandra's Review- You may have to read and discuss more so the passages with younger aged children, but that should be a really fun time for you all.  The book provides a way for any aged reader to explore and find favor with God.  You do not have to have a strong faith, but it would help if you did believe in what you are reading as this is a really nice story book.  You get a learning experience that you can take on a few minutes or hours depending on the amount of time you want to give during the day, plus there are always a lot of pages of scripture to reflect on for years after finishing the book.

Crated With Love Review .@CratedwithLove

Crated with Love is a subscription box business that helps bring the spark back in your relationship. Every box they ship is filled with fun, unique, and spontaneous date night items and activities that are focused on bringing more romance and laughter into your lives, while at the same time strengthening your relationship.

Every box they ship includes 4 or 5 date night challenges or activities along with all the items you will need. The goal is to help inspire laughter so you can reconnect and create quality time together.

I received a complimentary box.

Cassandra's Review- Creative and easy to follow directions.  The box may seem a bit tiny and the objects are not worth much, but if you follow the rules and really invest in the projects prepared, it will be a good time.  Each box is going to be different so this is a great gift for couples who are either in a lull or just want a little more connection.  While I think it is super random and has a great concept.
