Visiting a dentist when pregnant. Routine dental scales and cleans examinations,  treatment of any cavities, and gum disease,  is strongly recommended during pregnancy. In August 2013, The American College of Obstetricians and Gynecologists published  that routine  dental care is safe during pregnancy and is important for the health of the expectant mother as well as that of the unborn child. It is important to check with your dentist what antibiotic is best to consume during pregnancy.  For example, tetracycline-related antibiotics are not recommended because they have been found to cause staining in the teeth of the developing baby. Let your dentist and hygienist know about your good news They will give you sound advice on how to properly care for your teeth and gums during this particularly vulnerable time.

Mouth odors and bad breath.
Bad breath can be caused by many  things It can be indicative of:
1) Acid reflux/heartburn;
2)Gas that results in belching has an odor, and that gas is exiting from your mouth;
3)Allergies especially if it gives  you nasal issues;
4)People with diabetes are at much higher risk for gum disease, because their elevated blood sugar levels create an environment in their mouths suitable for bacteria to grow;
5) Cigarette Smoking;
6) Ulcers.  By taking ulcer medication as prescribed, this issue disappears.
7) Sleep apnea/asthma. Whenever we’re forced to breathe through our mouths, our mouths become dry, and this quickly leads to bad breath.

Caution against dental mercury tooth fillings. Dental silver-amalgam is a common dental filling material that has been used for more than one hundred fifty years. However, problems can arise because even though the material had been cemented, mercury vapor can be released into the mouth from  chewing and grinding teeth. Mercury is a powerful neurotoxin and, at certain levels, can cause neurological issues, autoimmune disease, chronic illnesses and mental disorders. Experts also say the mercury  is highly absorbent and gets into all parts of the body. Australia's National Health & Medical Research Council (NHMRC) says mercury fillings should be avoided in pregnant women, nursing mothers, children, and people with kidney disease.When you go to the dentist, it is always a good idea to ask the dentist important questions such as what the material is made of and what kind of side effects you are likely to face.

Your child's dental oral health and diet. Diet is an important factor that can affects your child's oral health. Exposure to beverages that contain sugars commonly results in dental tooth decay. In addition to reducing or completely eliminating sugary drinks from your child's diet, you should avoid giving your  children juice or soda at bedtime as the sugar will linger around and cause tooth decay," says Bruce DeGinder, DDS, MAGD, spokesperson for the AGD.

Good dental oral health starts at home. Parents should become familiar with their child's dental  health, which will be diagnosed with the family dentist or a pediatric dentist. The first dental visit for your child should be  at age 1 or within six months of the eruption of their first tooth. A dentist will also be able to discuss  best technique for brushing their teeth.

Effect of natural sweetener xylitol in preventing tooth decay is still unproven. It has  been suggested that the addition of xylitol to dental toothpastes may help to prevent tooth decay by stopping the growth of decay-producing bacteria. According to recent evidence in Cochrane Library there is little evidence that it is beneficial in the fight against tooth decay, which affects up to 90% of children and most adults worldwide.

Researchers - led by Remco Kort, of TNO (Netherlands Organisation for Applied Scientific Research)say just one kiss transfers 80 million bacteria! The results showed that after kissing intimately, for 10-second kiss, a total of 80 million bacteria were transferred. I guess most of us didn't know that! Next time you kiss, remember you are taking in 80 million bacteria!
