Do healthy white teeth give a youthful appearance??

Your smile is the first thing people see when they meet you. It's part of the first impression you make. Healthy, white teeth are the best accessory you can wear. People tend to associate healthy, white teeth with a youthful appearance. They can make you look bright and healthy. And remember: First impressions are lasting.

Just as white, straight teeth convey youth, a smile with crooked, discolored, worn, or missing teeth is associated with an aged look.

Today, we must make great efforts in order to maintain our teeth for life. Many people are spending a lot of money for dental implants to restore what they once had. The best treatment is to catch things early on: Maintaining what you have is much more cost-effective than repairing what was lost.

A person who keeps his or her own natural teeth healthy for a lifetime is less likely to have other health problems and will live a longer life.

 Not too many things can replace a healthy, happy smile. When we look good, we feel good and if our teeth are healthy, pretty and bright, our smile will reflect that same feeling. For the most part, if you feel good about your teeth and how they look, you'll tend to smile bigger making people take notice and when that happens, it creates an image of happiness.

Everyone wants a bright, healthy smile but oral health goes deeper than that. Oral health touches every aspect of our lives but is often taken for granted. Your mouth is a window into the health of your body. It can show signs of nutritional deficiencies or general infection. Systemic diseases, those that affect the entire body, may first become apparent because of mouth lesions or other oral problems.

Keeping a youthful mouth comes down to two simple, proven, and practical steps:

·         Brush twice daily

·         Floss: clean between your teeth once/twice a day with floss or another interdental cleaner

·         Replace your toothbrush every three or four months

·         Eat a balanced diet

·         Limit between-meal snacks.

·         Antimicrobial mouth rinse if recommended

·         See your dentist every six months

Smoking: are you still unaware?

A survey suggests the public are still unaware of the dangers posed by smoking.

in a new survey conducted recently, more than one in four people (28 per cent)

are still unaware that smoking is the leading cause of mouth cancer, a disease that kills

one person every five hours


A lack of knowledge didn’t stop at traditional cigarettes. When questioned about

some alternatives, more than half (57 per cent) thought  shisha

pipes (51 per cent) are safe alternatives to smoking while just under half (48 per cent)

thought smokeless tobacco is a safe substitute.


Smoking and tobacco use is still the leading cause of mouth cancer. According

to the World Health organization, up to half of current users will eventually die of

a tobacco-related illness.


Smoking can also cause a variety of oral health problems including

-tooth staining,

-dental plaque,

-bad breath,

-tooth loss

-gum disease.


A study reveals “on average, smokers lose about 16 years of their life.”

Given the substantial investment in anti-smoking campaigns over the last ten years i would have

hoped for fewer people to be unaware of the risks posed by the habit.

“However, the survey alongside rising cases of mouth cancer shows there is still a

large percentage of the population we must reach out to and educate. If combined

with drinking alcohol to excess, these two habits can raise the rise of developing the

disease by up to 30 times.


“Poor diet and the human papillomavirus (HPV), transmitted via oral sex, are also

risk factors. to ensure early detection - something that can transform survival rates

from 50 per cent to up to 90 per cent - we must all look for ulcers that do not heal

within three weeks, unusual lumps or swellings and red or white patches in the mouth.

our message to everyone is

“if in doubt, get checked out.”

Chewing Ice Can Cause Serious Tooth Damage
With good oral hygiene and proper dental care, your teeth should last a lifetime. But the violent bashing of ice inside your mouth can cause dental emergencies like teeth fractures, cracking and chipping.
Even if you can’t see the damage, chewing ice can:
  • Wear down tooth enamel
  • Increase sensitivity to hot and cold foods
  • Make teeth more vulnerable to decay.
Plus, you run the risk of damaging dental work you’ve had done like veneers and fillings. That could mean a lot of pain—in your mouth and your wallet.

Tip to kick the habit

If you must have something to chew on, we recommend sugar-free gum. And leave the ice in your glass!

"3D-Printed Toothbrush Cleans All Your Teeth in 6 Seconds"

Blizzident, a new 3D-printed toothbrush, looks like a mouthguard lined with 600 bristles. You bite down into the 3D replication of your mouth and grind your teeth on the bristles, which cleans all of your teeth simultaneously.

The brush, which looks like a gum shield covered in bristles, is customised to fit an individual’s mouth using scans of their mouth.

By clamping the brush in their mouth and grinding their teeth, it can clean the whole mouth at once and even includes a tongue cleaner.

The dense clusters of bristles in the brush are angled to align along a person’s gum line and touch the surface of each tooth at a 45 degree angle.

A group of dentists and engineers who are based in Spain, claim their new design could be ideal for those who feel traditional tooth brushes are eating into their day.

They say using their 3D printed brush could save up to 50 hours per year.

However, just one of the brushes costs £250 – although they do say they can last up to a year.

Describing how the brush works, “You simply bite and release quickly 10 to 15 times. This creates little vibrating, jiggling and slightly circling movements. Grinding left-right and backward-forwards, while your teeth are closed… additionally cleans the top surfaces of your molars.”

“Opening your mouth causes the gum line-bristles to additionally wipe dirt out.”

“Because you are brushing all your teeth at the same time, you are brushing extremely quickly.

“You brush all the difficult-to-reach and interdental regions without even having to think about it.” The brushes are created using scans and 3D models of the patient’s mouth.

These are then used to create a brush that is then printed out of soft plastic using a 3D printer with the inner surfaces covered in thousands of hair-like bristles.

It also contains slots where floss can be fixed to clean in between teeth, the company claims. However, the company has still to publish any clinical trials to show how its new brush compares to other tooth brushes.

Tooth enamel is the hardest substance in the human body.
However, we do not recommend that you use your pearly whites to open bottle caps!

Soda and Teeth

Soda related tooth decay..
People across the world use different words to identify a sugary, carbonated soft drink. But however they say it, they're talking about something that can cause serious oral health problems.

People who drink 3 or more glasses of soda each day have 62% more tooth decay, fillings and tooth loss than others. Sugar-free drinks, which account for only 14 percent of all soft drink consumption, are less harmful. However, they are acidic and potentially can still cause problems.
According to studies, some teenagers drink as many as 12 soft drinks a day.
“Acidic substances attack tooth enamel, and upper layers of the tooth can even be dissolved in some acidic drinks,” said Dr. Attin in an interview with Reuters Health.  “However, protective agents in saliva may help repair and rebuild damaged tooth enamel.”
Protection from soda related decay??
“You should wait at least 30 minutes after drinking soda before brushing your teeth, said researchers at the German Association for Tooth Protection meeting.”

Smoking Hookah/Sheesha vs Cigarettes and Chances of getting Mouth Cancer

The Caterpillar and Alice looked at each other for some time in silence: at last the Caterpillar took the hookah out of its mouth, and addressed her in a languid, sleepy voice ... 'Who are YOU?' said the Caterpillar.  
- Alice's Adventures in Wonderland - by Lewis Carroll

Perhaps there are many who've read this passage more than once without thinking to establish what the caterpillar was doing with a 'hookah' in its mouth, but either Lewis Carroll was making some oblique reference to Middle Eastern culture, or, seemingly more likely judging by the rest of the book, he was implying that the caterpillar is well-and-truly stoned. 
But all this gives us a false sense of safety which needs to be rationally thought over. Which brings us to one important question...

There is a myth that hookah smoking is safer than smoking cigarettes because the hookah smoke is filtered through water before it is inhaled. But recent studies have found that hookah smokers actually inhale more nicotine than do cigarette smokers because of the massive volume of smoke they inhale. 
The hookah operates by water-filtration and indirect heat. Hookah (Shisha) smokers may feel that the hookah is a safe alternative to smoking cigarettes, but doctors take a dim view of this. Whereas smoking a fag lasts around five minutes, a full-on hookah experience can last 45 minutes, meaning users inhale a larger volume of smoke than they would from a cigarette.

Cancer: Studies have shown lung and bladder cancer rates are higher among water-pipe smokers than among nonsmokers, and they are also at risk from pulmonary disease and other types of malignancies such as Oral Cancer.

How often should you replace your Toothbrush??

The Indian Dental Association (IDA) recommends throwing out your toothbrush every three to four months. If the bristles become frayed, you're sick, or you have a weak immune system, throw it out even more often. If you use an electric toothbrush, throw out the head as often as you'd discard a disposable toothbrush.

Ans: Every 2 to 3 months

Awareness on selection of toothpaste !

Pay attention when buying toothpaste.
At the bottom of the toothpaste tube
there is a color bar.
Try to choose green and blue, there are four kinds:

Green: natural;
Blue : Natural + Medicine;
Red : Natural + Chemical composition;
