I often hear from family and friends that they haven’t been to the dentist in years because nothing hurts. Oral diseases often have no pain or symptoms in their early stages so it can sneak up on a lot of patients. Early detection and prevention are the best way of stopping disease and preventing more expensive treatment down the road.

Since our mouth is part of our digestive system, it’s filled with many types of bacteria. I simplify them as “teeth bacteria” or “gum bacteria”. Gum bacteria love to hide in dark spaces, usually underneath your gums. They have a very unique feature in that they love to call their friends and form a web of colonies called biofilm. Biofilm starts off soft and whitish. In fact, if you wake up in the morning and scrape your teeth and gums you will see the white film on your nails. The only way of removing these bacterial colonies is to physically scrape them off by brushing and flossing. Here is the frustrating part, no matter how good we are at brushing and flossing, studies show that every 3-4 months these bacteria colonies get so strong they start to harden up like rocks. We call these bacterial “rock formations” calculus.

Don’t get me wrong, excellent home care and routine dental check ups are an absolute must to preventing dental disease but there is more to the story. Dentists have historically been terrible at explaining and educating patients. Growing up my dentist would walk in, say you have 3 cavities and walk out. The good news is that we are in the middle of a paradigm shift in our profession, the new generation of dentists are prioritizing education and prevention.

“We frequently get asked, ‘Do my kids need to floss?’“, says Dr. Rubin. “Many young kiddos have large spaces between their teeth. Yes, you still need to brush! Yes, you still need to floss! It’s actually easier to floss if there’s space between the teeth, but don’t forget about the back teeth. Many times those teeth don’t have any space between them and that’s where food gets caught. To floss you can either use handy, disposable floss sticks that come in all shapes, colors and sizes, or you can also use traditional string floss that you wrap around your fingers.”
Cosmetic dentistry and smile makeovers are often a big investment of time and money so I always recommend doing your homework before starting your journey.

Let’s face it, when you are an expecting mom you have a pretty busy schedule. When my wife was pregnant with our daughter, I recall every other week having an OB visit, a specialist visit, or a trip to the chiropractor to help with the sciatica. In the midst of all the appointments and busy schedule, something that slipped our minds completely was my wife’s dental check ups. It didn’t hit us until she started complaining of severe gum pain and bleeding from her gums. I am especially embarrassed by this because as a dentist I know how important dental check ups are for expecting moms. I immediately took her to my office and did a thorough evaluation of her gums and teeth, as I suspected she was going through some severe pregnancy gingivitis.
Sucking is a natural reflex! Newborns start life with a sucking instinct to seek food or comfort, some even suck on their fingers while in the womb. While some infants are satisfied through feedings, it is normal behavior for babies and young children to seek a sense of comfort, security or relaxation by sucking their thumbs, fingers, fists, pacifiers or other objects they can place in their mouth. Most children naturally stop these ‘sucking habits’ around the age of 2-4 years old.
