Tips on Living Long and Healthy

September 16th, 2019

Now that we're into the month of September, it's time to focus our attention on how to improve our overall health in honor and celebration of Healthy Aging Month! This yearly observance focuses on highlighting tips to help individuals improve their physical and mental health as adults get older. This means also focusing on oral health, since the mouth is a window to the rest of the body. In fact, gum disease, which is common in older people, has been found to be linked with memory loss. Which means taking care of your mind may rely heavily on taking care of your mouth! It is important to realize that as we continue to age, there are changes that occur within the mouth that affect our teeth and the surrounding gums and bone. It is key to minimize damage to our oral cavity at any age by maintaining regular dental visits, and keeping up with good oral hygiene habits each day. Often, poor oral health becomes a factor that worsens existing chronic health problems that an individual may face, including heart disease and diabetes.

In addition, older adults may often be taking several medications daily, which can lead to dry mouth. Not only is the feeling of dry mouth annoying, but it also is harmful to your teeth because it can increase your risk of developing tooth decay due to less saliva being present within the mouth.

No matter what age we are, it is always a great time to start practicing healthy lifestyle habits. Take a look at these tips for healthy aging:

1. Drink plenty of water!

Staying hydrated is very important for our bodies. Tap water is the best resource because it contains fluoride, which plays a major role in keeping your teeth healthy.

2. Healthy snacks are the way to go

We need to be a little picky with our food choices in order to have a diet that is healthy for our teeth and body. Snacks filled with protein including yogurt, cheese, and nuts make great healthy and tooth-friendly snacks. Also eating foods high in iron, such as spinach, meats, and beans, can help give you the energy you need for each day. Avoid eating sugary foods and candy, as these items aren't so tooth-friendly despite their tastiness.

3. Brushing and flossing habits at home

It is important to brush at least twice a day, and floss at least once a day to help wash away all of the food particles and bacteria within the mouth that could cause harm to your pearly whites. If you wear any oral appliances, such as a retainer or denture, be sure to clean these since bacteria can harbor themselves there too! Fluoride Mouthwash also makes for a good addition to your oral care habits. Not only does the mouth wash help make your breath smell nice and fresh, it also may contain beneficial fluoride and can easily be added to your night and/or morning time routine.

4. Be active

Exercise is essential for staying healthy as we get older. Adults are recommended to get at least 150 minutes of exercise each week.

5. Schedule your dental visit

Be sure that your are visiting your dentist for a regular check up at least twice a year to ensure that your teeth are healthy.

Each Bite Counts: National Nutrition Month

March 10th, 2019

The popular saying, "You are what you eat," reminds us that a healthy diet is important in order to keep our bodies healthy, vibrant, and energized. National Nutrition Month is a yearly initiative each March created by the Academy of Nutrition and Dietetics to educate individuals on healthy food choices. What we eat on a daily basis not only effects our general health, but also the health of our teeth and gums. In fact, the initial signs of poor nutrition can often first be seen in the mouth.

Healthy teeth aren't just a result of daily toothbrushing and flossing...nutrition plays a major role, too! It is important to include a variety of nutrient-rich foods from all the food groups.

Here are some tips to help you make informed choices on foods and beverages that are tooth-friendly and heart-healthy:

  • Be sure to educate your children about the benefits of eating smart and keeping hydrated with milk and water over sugary sodas and sports drinks. If consuming acidic foods or beverages, it is best to drink water immediately, but wait 30 minutes before brushing your teeth to avoid damaging your enamel since it is at a weakened state during this period. If you have an infant, only send them to sleep with water, as milk or juice can lead to baby bottle tooth decay.
  • Find out your nutritional and calorie needs, based on your age, gender, amount of physical activity, and other health factors. A balanced diet should include:
    • Fruits and Vegetables
      • Fruits and vegetables contain a high water and fiber content, which is beneficial for your teeth and body.
    • Whole Grains
      • Whole wheat bread
      • Brown rice
      • Oatmeal
    • Dairy (low-fat or fat-free)
      • Cheese, milk, and plain yogurt help keep your pearly whites strong!
    • Protein
      • Lean beef
      • Skinless poultry and fish
      • Eggs
      • Beans
      • Peas
      • Legumes

  • Avoid foods that harm your dental health, including empty calorie foods like candy, sweet desserts and non-nutritional snacks. Foods and drinks high in sugar, starch, and carbohydrates, stick to tooth enamel and the bacteria within your mouth consume the sugar. In return the bacteria then release harmful acid that breaks down tooth enamel. It is best to limit your consumption of soda, juice, and sweetened coffee or tea, as these choices promote tooth decay. Not to mention, coffee, tea, and wine are big culprits of causing tooth staining.
  • Nutrients including phosphorus, calcium, Vitamin D, and probiotics, help strengthen enamel and fight against tooth decay. Also, Vitamin C , found in citrus fruits, tomatoes, peppers, spinach, broccoli, and potatoes to name a few, helps promote gum health.
  • Snacking between meals can expose your teeth to more sugar and acids, so it is best to limit snacking. If you do snack, make a conscious nutritious choice, such as cheese, yogurt, fruits, vegetables, or nuts.
  • In addition to eating healthy, make sure you are staying physically active for at least 1 hour a day.
  • If you have medical conditions including gastrointestinal reflux or an eating disorder, your risk of cavities and enamel erosion may be higher.

Super Bowl 50

February 7th, 2016

Are you ready for the Super Bowl 50 kickoff this Sunday, February 7th at 6:30PM? Whether you're simply in it for the halftime show, or you're actually a true football fan...this is an American tradition you don't want to miss out on!

The Denver Broncos (AFC champions) and the Carolina Panthers (NFC champions) will face off at Levi's Stadium in Santa Clara, California. This is the eighth time the Broncos (2-5) have made the Super Bowl and the second time for the Panthers (0-1). Here are some stats about both teams:

Broncos:

  • The team has the second-lowest ranked offense that has ever advanced to the Super Bowl (22.2 PPG/19th in the league in 2015)
  • The Broncos come out on top in close games (11 wins by seven points or less in 2015)
  • Compared to the other four teams that have made the Super Bowl eight times (which is the most times in NFL history), Denver is the only team to have a losing record (2-5)
  • Leading men: QB Peyton Manning, LB Von Miller, Coach Gary Kubiak

Panthers:

  • The team has rushed for more than 100 yards in 31 consecutive games (the longest streak since 1974)!
  • Kuechly and Thomas Davis are the dynamic duo! These veteran linebackers were two of the three NFL players who made at least 100 tackles and four interceptions this season.
  • The Panthers almost had a perfect season (15-1), but does this mean they don't have a good chance at winning the championship? Past teams who've shared the same experience have failed to win.
  • Leading men: QB Cam Newton, LB Luke Kuechly, Coach Ron Rivera

This year's halftime show will feature Beyonce, Coldplay, and Bruno Mars.

Are you hosting a Super Bowl party? Here are some tooth-friendly snacks from the ADA to help you tackle your hunger. Recipes can be found here: http://www.mouthhealthy.org/en/nutrition/super-bowl-recipes/?content=superbowl&medium=rotator&source=mh/

Spicy Jalapeno Dip:

Remember to eat your veggies! The carrots in this dip can make your teeth extra strong - it has beta-carotene that helps in the creation of vitamin A. Sour cream also contains calcium, which is essential for strong teeth.

Hummus with Cucumber:

Hummus is a great choice for staying healthy in general, and especially for your teeth. Chickpeas are a great source of folic acid, which promotes oral health through cell growth. Cucumbers are rich in vitamins B and C and can help freshen your breath and whiten your teeth!

Meat & Cheese Tray:

Cheese is full of calcium and casein, which helps protect the surface of your teeth. Make sure to choose whole wheat crackers that have fiber and to brush your teeth after the game to prevent bacterial growth from the crackers sticking to your teeth!

Baked Cheese Roll:

Goat cheese is especially great, because it is packed with protein and calcium but has less fat and calories per serving.

7-Layer Dip:

The cheese and Greek yogurt help neutralize tomato and citric juices, which are acidic and can create problems for your teeth. This dip is rich in vitamins A, C, and E, which all help maintain oral health.

Listen up, Kids: Dental Care for Children

October 9th, 2015

kidBelieve it or not, a third of children today have tooth decay before even starting school. According to statistics published by the Health & Social Care Information Centre, tooth decay is one of the main causes of hospital visits for children in elementary school. Surprisingly, 25,812 children ranging from ages 5 to 9 went to the hospital for tooth extractions in the last year alone.

Here are some tips below on how to protect your child’s teeth to make sure that your child doesn’t become part of these statistics!

  1. Drink less fruit juice!

Just because fruit juice is nutritious and often rich in vitamin C does not mean that it’s also beneficial for your teeth! Many juices have around the same amount of sugar as that in sodas, or even more. For instance, NPR states that apple juice contains 65.8 grams of sugar per liter, while cola contains 62.5 grams of sugar per liter. This copious amount of sugar leads to tooth decay. Furthermore, the acid from the juice destroys the enamel of teeth, which can cause teeth to deteriorate. Even the British Dental Association claims that 50% of children ranging from four to 18 years old show these signs.

Because of these harmful effects of fruit juice, dentists recommend water and milk as healthy beverage alternatives for children. If your child is still craving fruit juice, try to dilute it as much as possible and make sure that your child has a meal with it. Also, try your best to avoid letting your child have too much contact time with the cup and his or her teeth and instead opt for using a straw.

 

  1. Avoid dried fruit !

Dried fruit isn’t a good replacement for candy it has a great deal of sugar, and even worse, its sticky texture clings onto your child’s teeth. Due to these unhealthy properties, dried fruit can ruin enamel and rot your little one’s molars. Although chocolate isn’t a great option, dark chocolate is known to  be rich in antioxidants that help prevent the spread of tooth-decay causing bacteria.

Whole fruit can be a better option than dried fruit and fruit juice because it contains water and fibers that help wash away sugar from teeth. However, try not to feed your child more than one or two low-sugar fruit pieces (strawberries, raspberries, blueberries, kiwis, peaches, and pears) instead of high-sugar fruit pieces (grapes or pineapple) per day. Incorporate fruit into meals rather than simply having them as snacksBreadsticks, toast, cheese, nuts, or seeds are some healthier snack alternatives.

 

  1. Baby teeth matter!

It's important not to presume that just because baby teeth are not permanent, that they should not be taken care of! Your child’s permanent teeth are at a higher risk of decay and other dental problems when primary teeth decay. Baby tooth decay could lead children to experience dental anxiety, which could make them less likely to visit the dentist later on.

 

  1. Help your child brush his/her teeth!

Depending on how mature your child is, you should help brush your child’s teeth until at least age seven to ensure that they are using proper brushing techniques. 

 

  1. Proper brushing techniques!
  • Don’t let your child brush his/her teeth right after eating, particularly after eating or drinking something acidic. Doing so will brush the enamel away! Your child should either brush before eating breakfast or wait an hour after the meal. Chewing sugar-free gum can also be an effective way to clean teeth, because it produces saliva, which defends against decay, and brings mouths back to a neutral pH level.
  • It doesn’t matter if your child uses a manual or electric toothbrush. What’s important is that the brushing lasts for at least two minutes! Electric toothbrushes often have built-in timers, so this feature can be effective.
  • Don’t let your child rinse the toothpaste away right after brushing! The fluoride in the toothpaste can keep protecting his or her teeth for 30 minutes. Children under three should use toothpaste with 1,000 fluoride parts per million, while children over three should use adult toothpaste that contains 1,450 fluoride parts per million.

For many parents, the first time they took their children to the dentist was when their children were at least one year old. However, parents should set their first appointment for when their children’s teeth begin to come out, which is around five to six months old. Further oral health tips for children can be found here.

This past spring, we welcomed Dr. Van, our Pediatric Dentist, onto our caring team at the Wellesley Dental Group! Dr. Van strongly believes in the importance of creating a fun and welcoming atmosphere for patients as well as parents. One of his goals is to introduce good dental habits to our youth, preventing dental diseases later on in life.

Squeezable Snacks: Sweet Invention

July 16th, 2014

The newest snack trend to hit supermarkets and store shelves is the squeeze snack: small pouches filled with anything from organic pureed fruit to baby food.  Each pouch can be sipped on through a convenient plastic straw and do not require any utensils, heating, or refrigeration.  Although these travel-friendly snacks may seem like a sweet deal, many dentists warn that these pouches can be detrimental to a child's oral health.

Many parents reach for the pouch snack for their children because they are under the impression that these snacks are organic and therefor healthier than other popular kid-friendly snacks.  However, don't be fooled by the misleading "100% fruit" label plastered on the front of many of these snacks.  While "squeezy snacks" may be made of fruit, they are still packed with sugars.  For example, Gerber Graduates Grabbers Squeezable Fruit Banana Blueberry has a staggering 20 grams of sugar per serving.  This is almost an entire day's worth of sugar in an adult's carb-controlled diet. Eating a whole apple is healthy and nutritious because of the fiber the natural fruit provides.  However, once the puree juice is packaged, you lose most of the nutritiousness and what remains is cavity-causing sugar.  Furthermore, the feeding straws promote lingering exposure in the same way sippy cups do for infants.  The biggest cause for concern is the amount of time the sticky sweet purees remain on teeth. "The constant exposure of sugar on their teeth is detrimental," says Paul Casamassimo, the oral health research and policy center director at the American Academy of Pediatric Dentistry. "My concern would be if the child walks around with this little pouch, then they might be doing the same thing," he says. Some dentists suggest that rinsing your children's mouth with water or brushing teeth after consuming the pouch snacks can alleviate some of their cavity-causing effects.  However, in the long run, it would be best to only have these sugary snacks sparingly as a treat.  Another alternative would be to manually mash up different fruits and spoon-feed it to children to avoid the prolonged exposure that squeezy pouches allow.

June is National Dairy Month!

June 6th, 2014

The start of June signals the beginning of summer, warmer weather, beach vacations and... the start of National Dairy Month!  Formerly known as National Milk Month, National Dairy Month began in 1937 as a way to get people to incorporate more nutritious dairy into their diets.  Dairy products contain nine essential nutrients like calcium and potassium.  These healthy nutrients can help manage weight, reduce risk for high blood pressure and osteoporosis, and they also keep your teeth healthy.

Although most people know that drinking milk leads to strong bones, not many people realize that dairy products can also help keep your teeth strong as well.  Nutritious dairy products like yogurt or string cheese contain high levels of calcium and vitamin D.  Calcium is a vital nutrient responsible for the rebuilding of teeth.  More specifically, the saliva in our mouths expose calcium to our teeth and it helps to combat some of the corroding effects of foods we eat (like carbohydrates and sugars) and remineralization will take place.

The National Dairy Council suggests that people older than 9 years should ideally consume 3 servings of low-fat or fat-free dairy every day.  However, most people are only getting 2 or less servings of dairy daily.  For example, a single serving of dairy is equal to one 8-ounce glass of fat-free or low-fat milk or 1.5 ounces of reduced-fat natural cheese like cheddar.

Here are some fun dairy-filled snack ideas to try this summer adapted from the National Dairy Council:

  • Wrap pretzel rods with reduced-fat Cheddar cheese
  • Blend a cup of low-fat chocolate milk, a banana, and ice cubes
  • Cup up pieces of fruit and include low-fat or fat-free vanilla yogurt as a dip
  • "Yogurt-sicle"s: pour low-fat yogurt into small paper cups, insert popsticks and freeze
  • Fruit-and-Cheese Kabobs: alternate slices of apple and reduced-fat cheese cubes on small wooden skewers

Snacks for Healthy Teeth

March 28th, 2014

Healthy Snacks for Kids and AdultsLooking for healthy snack alternatives? There are a lot of tasty snacks that are less damaging to teeth. Eating healthy foods can help protect you and your child from tooth decay and other oral health problems. It is important to avoid sugary snacks. The bacteria in plaque found on teeth turns sugar into acids. These acids deteriorate tooth enamel, which can lead to cavities. The more times you consume sugary snacks throughout the day, the more often bacteria is able to produce acids. Limiting sugar intake can improve oral health!

Encourage your child to eat healthy snacks to help keep their smiles healthy. An easy way to get your child interested in eating healthy snacks is to prepare tasty combinations, such as apple slices with peanut butter. Also, when creating a grocery list, involve your child by finding out what they enjoy eating, and helping them understand what’s good and bad for their teeth. Sending your child to school with nutritious snacks can help your them have healthier teeth.

Here's a list of some smart snack choices for you and your family:

Proteins

Chicken breast

Fish

Turkey

Pork

Pumpkin seeds

Sunflower seeds

Nuts

 

Fresh fruits and
raw vegetables

Berries

Melons

Pears

Broccoli

Celery

Carrots

Cucumbers

Tomatoes

 

Grains

Whole-wheat bagels

Unsweetened cereals

Plain popcorn

Baked tortilla chips

Whole-wheat crackers

Low-salt Pretzels

 

Milk and dairy products

Low or non-fat milk

Low or non-fat yogurt

Cheese

Sweets aren't the only unhealthy snacks. Junk foods, such as pizza, are also potentially damaging to teeth. Also, avoid sticky foods, which tend to remain on teeth and cause plaque to build up. Be aware that even some healthy snacks, if eaten in excess, may promote tooth decay. Be selective when it comes to choosing a snack, and remember to brush your teeth after snacks and meals!
