Health 'Bites': 8 Things You Didn't Know About Your Teeth
Date:2/11/2010

NEW YORK, Feb. 11 /PRNewswire/ -- Oral health is often the window to your overall health. Evidence has supported the link between poor oral health and such conditions as stroke, premature birth and diabetes. Other conditions, such as HIV/AIDS and osteoporosis may show preliminary signs in your mouth, before other areas of the body are affected.  Also, some of your daily activities or habits can affect your oral health.  Therefore, it's wise to pay attention to your teeth and gums.

Brian Gold, D.D.S., Monticello, NY, and consultant to Majestic Drug Company, a leading provider of oral care products, provides this valuable insight into oral hygiene.

  1. Survey shows Americans unprepared for dental emergencies.  Although 72 percent of Americans have fillings, caps or crowns and one in six had a dental emergency during the past 12 months, most are not prepared to deal with a dental emergency, according to a recent survey conducted by Majestic Drug Company  It's wise to have a product such as Dentemp® O.S. on hand as a temporary repair for loose caps or lost fillings.  
  2. Bulimia and acid reflux can destroy tooth enamel.  Bulimics are often able to hide the disorder from others but not from their dentist.  Enamel erosion is a major sign of bulimic behavior.  And acid reflux, whereby stomach acid flows into the esophagus and mouth, can cause tooth and gum erosion.  
  3. Soda and citrus drink overuse can be caustic to tooth enamel. The average American drinks more than 53 gallons of soft drinks each year, more than any other beverage including milk, beer, coffee or water.  Phosphoric acid in soda and citric acid in citrus drinks can cause tooth enamel corrosion and the sugar can cause cavities
