Over-the-counter teeth whitening products are a big business, but they are not without risks. According to a USC survey, half of people using OTC whitening gels experienced tooth sensitivity. One out of every 25 experienced pain that was severe enough to interfere with their normal daily activities. http://alanframedds.com/damaging-effects-of-cheap-whitening-treatments/

Gap-toothed smiles in children may be adorable, but most adults would prefer to keep their smiles intact. Unfortunately, tooth loss continues to be common in people over 35, and it becomes even more common with age. As you get older, your risk of losing one or more teeth increases dramatically. Unfortunately, a recent study published in the “European Journal of Oral Sciences” revealed that tooth loss can cause more than an unattractive gap in your smile and has linked tooth loss with reduced cognitive function. http://alanframedds.com/link-between-teeth-and-memory/

Everyone enjoys an occasional snack between meals. Some snacks are bad both for your general health and for your oral health. Choosing the right snacks can not only satisfy your craving for a sweet or salty bite, but it also has a huge impact on your oral health. http://alanframedds.com/oral-health-friendly-snacks/

Your oral health has a profound impact on your general health. Each year, medical researchers find more links between poor oral health and serious general health conditions, such as heart disease, diabetes, lung infections, and even certain types of blood cancers. A recent study in the Journal of American Geriatrics has found an additional link between oral and general health. http://alanframedds.com/oral-health-and-brain-health/
