Can a Woman’s Hormones Cause Gum Disease?

For women who have wondered why their gums and teeth have taken a hit during different points in their life, the answer may be related to your hormones. Researchers at the Case Western Reserve University School of Dental Medicine recently shared a finding that may explain why a woman’s mouth is more prone to bacteria at certain times than others. According to the study, hormone changes can cause conditions in the mouth to be more hospitable to damaging bacteria. If the conditions are right, bacteria can grow more rapidly in the mouth, enter the blood stream, and even cause problems with bone loss in the jaw, resulting in missing teeth. How can you make sure your teeth remain healthy and free from periodontal disease? Continue reading

Can Obesity Affect Dental Health?

Dr Sherri Worth DDS – It’s the new year and people are considering their goals for the next 12 months- while personal resolutions like learning a new language, traveling to a new country, or paying off debt are all common New Year’s goals, the main resolution that many people choose is weight loss. It’s no surprise, considering nearly 35% of Americans are overweight or obese.

The Toothbrush: A Gift that Keeps on Giving…

Perhaps it’s not the most exciting gift. It’s definitely not the most popular gift (especially once you learn that more people on this planet own cell phones than toothbrushes). However, it is one of those practical gifts that keeps on giving! We think nothing is better than spoiling those pearly whites to a sparkling perfection. So what better investment to make on yourself this holiday season than a new toothbrush?

TOO MANY CHOICES?

With so many toothbrush options, where do you begin? Manual brushes seem so diverse; soft bristle, hard bristle, long neck, narrow head. And power toothbrushes seem so complex. It’s difficult to have any confidence (or desire) in purchasing a quality toothbrush. Our skilled hygienists can answer any questions at your next dental cleaning in Newport Beach. However, in the meantime, let’s get down to the basics and hopefully define the contributing factors that make a toothbrush worth its price. Continue reading
