In the past few years, the economic condition of many of our patients has changed, thus limiting their options when making dental treatment choices.

Oral health changes in puberty
Technorati    Share    Share on FacebookTwitterShare on LinkedinE-mail
Dr. Julio Hernandez writes, "Puberty brings a new set of challenges to oral health especially for girls. The surge of hormones, specifically estrogen and progesterone, cause a change in the bacterial flora found in the oral environment. The most common changes found are an increase in gum inflammation. This will cause gums to become tender and sometimes bleed. A child's oral hygiene during this time is important in order to keep the gums from overgrowing and causing infection. Starting your children on a routine of proper oral hygiene early is important. Your dentist and hygienist can help train your children, with the proper tools, on how to effectively clean their mouths. Brushing and flossing at least twice a day are important. The use of an electric toothbrush also may help children reach areas they could not with a manual brush." More

Laboratory-grown gingival cells treated with vitamin D boosted their production of an endogenous antibiotic, and killed more bacteria than untreated cells, according to a paper in the June 2011 issue of the journal Infection and Immunity. The research suggests that vitamin D can help protect the gums from bacterial infections that lead to gingivitis and periodontitis. Periodontitis affects up to 50 percent of the U.S. population, is a major cause of tooth loss, and can also contribute to heart disease. Most Americans are deficient in vitamin D. More
